« In The Vortex » is an energetic instrumental put together while toying with leftover ideas from « Informaëlstrom » and « Leftoverturned. »
The intent here was to communicate the experience of feeling enthusiastic and determined despite being faced with a demanding or overwhelming challenge.
The title refers to Esther Hicks' concept of the vortex, or to be more precise, to the experience of being in that vortex, a state of mind characterized by purposeful joy and focused forward motion.
The clip presents the short version of the composition which was edited to fit the requirements of the Melodic Revolution Records Theme Song Contest held in 2009.
