There are two recordings here, both based on the same source material: "More Red Than Red" (2:45 min) and "Less Red Than Red" (1:30 min). I wrote "Less Red" first, for a short web film that Roland was putting together (I don't know if he ever finished it). I made a longer mix of the same composition with some extra instrumentation (most notably piano), which became "More Red." Some time later Leo Laporte started using it as the theme for his Windows Weekly podcast with Paul Thurrott, which is where most people probably recognize it now.

A song I wrote as a prize for a Christmas charity auction at Navarik, my employer. I composed it for Kai, the son of one of my co-workers, who bid the most for it. "You're the Big Sky" (4.5 MB MP3 file) is licensed for you to share and reuse, as long as you give me credit. There is also an instrumental version.
