The main sound that begins this song and features on the other tracks is an iPad app that Drozd put his voice into and turned into an electric choir. Coyne told MusicRadar.com
: "It's extremely haunting, and we found we kept coming back to it. So now the song even begins with Steven's voice that was made into his own synthesizer."
"That really is the secret as to why this is such a long piece," he continued. "You're not really hearing instruments so much; you're hearing a lot of the human voice, even though it's been put through synthesizers and s--t. It becomes emotionally evocative."
Coyne added: "Steven started doing this thing, and I knew immediately that I could sing something to it. We were playing along, not really knowing what we were doing, and some of the sounds that we used were really fu---d-up, distorted, heavy, tri-tone things - some of them electric guitars, some of them keyboards put through different reverbs and effects."
