Story behind the song
This is the second part of the Format Sea suite. It's the longest piece of the puzzle, running over ten minutes long. Listen to with headphones for the best experience.
It was written in the middle of last year, and it gradually evolved over the months into what it is now.

I had downloaded this Hurst sample in late 2004, and her page is no longer on the Opsound site. To my best understanding, the license doesn't 'expire', although it's admittedly a gray area. I may have to pull the sample at some point if the circumstances warrant it.
I think it's the same Emily Hurst who is in Las Rubias Del Norte. I stumbled across their Myspace page while researching this.
I acknowledge by using the Hurst sample, it also puts my track under the exact same CC license. (Translation - remixers and samplers can have a LOT of fun with it.)
Addendum: 6/21 - I uploaded a retooled version of Baptism. Song credits have been updated to include new samples added. Let me know if it's loud enough.
