Bryan Bedell's Layer 5 Commentary


There are a lot of ways to turn a match around, or wipe the slate clean. Usually it comes a bit later in the match, but I think we were ready for a change.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I see this as Tom Muller's "Execute" monitor powering down, which is a pretty novel way to create the "it was all a dream" effect we see in a lot of matches. Muller's gone back to type and texture, and it works nicely. Layer Tennis participants are chosen on the strength of their work, and they're alway successful when they stick with what they know.

You may note we're at the halfway mark. Where will it go from here? Who's at the controls of our would-be HAL 9000? Only Kevin Dart knows.

SOUNDTRACK: Remember Tom said he's into "electro / laserbass / dubstep and grime?" I looked it up, it's a thing, with the kids. And it's kind of awesome. Here's some Harmonic 313 for you. I bet it sounds even sweeter on a nice loud stereo.

Play by play commentary for this match is provided, as it happens, by Bryan Bedell.
