Thrive - Video

Thrive was performed towards the end of the film where Roy confronts Deckard at J.F. Sebastian's apartment. It is sung from the perspective of first Roy, and then Deckard.

This video excerpt offers you the perspective of experiencing the scene as presented through our music and lyrics.



What am I to do

The light has left your eyes

Your death had come too soon

What I'd give

To see you smile

What I'd give

To see you thrive

Time is blind

I will avenge you

I will avenge you



It's madness

He toys with death like it's a game

But time

Is on my side

Soon his life will come to an end


Music by Marco Spatuzzi
Lyrics by C.A. Chicoine

Music arranged and performed by MEMORIA

The Resurrection of Blade Runner: The Rock Project

Every once in a while -- out of the blue -- a melody from this project would come to mind. And it was that little inspiration that moved me to revisit the archives.

I found that there were more beautiful songs in this collection that had not yet seen the light of day. They were heard only by a very select few. They lay at rest in envelopes, cases and hard-drives -- awaiting their turn in the studio to be doctored and mixed. There are those few songs that will have to wait for their resurrection. But, I did find that there were some that I felt could be heard and still appreciated now.

This, in turn, had led me to revisit the websites. And I thought it time they were revamped. So, now there is a new MEMORIA website. The Facebook page has also been updated.

I am also putting together a video clip. It'll show the scene from Blade Runner where Roy confronts Deckard at J.F. Sebastian's apartment. Instead of the movie soundtrack, it'll feature the song Thrive. Besides featuring this unheard gem from the archives, the viewer will be able to experience the scene as presented through our music and lyrics.

I still do hope to one day assemble the entire collection -- have them polished up and mixed -- and release them properly. Until then, you may listen to the selected songs featured on the website.

New Website Coming Soon!

New updated website coming soon!

Two songs retrieved from the archives

The Last Breakfast is inspired by the scene in the movie Blade Runner where Pris is at J.F. Sebastian's apartment. I like to consider this song her war cry. Pris puts on her war paint and sings of her intentions. She is full of confidence. J.F., her Savior, will lead her friend Roy to their Creator -- Tyrell. The battle is on. This lyric mirrors the Christian motif found throughout the film.

Music:Marco Spatuzzi
Lyrics:C.A. Chicoine

La Strada represents the part in the film where Deckard is seen driving through the tunnel heading home to his apartment.

This is one of the instrumentals written by Marco Spatuzzi.
