TUNE Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - Scorpio
Tracks six to ten of Nostalgia For Infinity make up the Redemption Ark suite. These tracks are all inspired by Reynolds’ Revelation Space novels.
In this universe, humanity has fractured into competing factions defined by their relationship with technology, but all threatened by the Inhibitors, ancient machines aiming to preserve life in the long run, by destroying civilisations that become too intelligent.
'Scorpio' is an instrumental portrait of Scorpio, one of the genetically engineered human/pig hybrids created by humans as slaves. Escaping from his role as prey in a sadistic hunt, he initially is full of hatred for humanity but rises above this to become a compassionate, but still irritable and unpredictable leader.
