The track revolves around a 9/8 rhythm and is based around the Hungarian Minor scale, though by deriving its modes it provides a more Arabian than gypsy flavour.

The lo-fi output of the Ploytec PL-2 synthesizer provides a jagged texture in the bass line that revolves around more crisp ambient sounds, derived from several recorded guitar "accidents" fed through multiple delay lines.

The resulting composition sketches a "brooding feel of ruin and abandonment in a desert". Disney wouldn't have any of it for Aladdin.
