Ouroboros is an ancient alchemy symbol depicting a snake or dragon consuming its own tail, constantly creating itself and forming a circle. Aptly "Cycle" does just that, it constantly recycles and consumes itself, over and over in changing combinations, ending how it started!

Okay, the idea is similar to our previous 1 track opus "MoebiusStrip" yet the results are quite different as a lot has changed in the Triax sound since 2005, the instrumentation is richer, with more colours and textures, greater dynamics and musical form. It is both the Triax sound in a nutshell and unlike any Triax before it!
