Having been without the sonic nor lyrical inspiration to finish the two "proper songs" that are in the in the pipeline, "Byzantone" came about after deciding to spend a day off with the assignment to "create a short groove in 7/8-time using the Byzantine (double harmonic major)-scale and its derived chords".

The track is the result of imposing two requirements prior to writing the composition : it must be in an odd meter and feature a non-Western scale/mode. Apart from meeting these prerequisites, the track had to be completed in a "see how for you can get within a few available hours"-time constraint to keep spontaneity.
