CREATIVE L CONCEPTS & ENTERTAINMENT

This video music mix I did is dedicated to my favorite Novel (and actors who both passed away this November 2016) The book made the best sellers list & Movie by Dean Koontz called “DEMON SEED” Story: A Computer Genius Dr. Harris played by (Fritz Weaver) developed Proteus IV. An extremely advanced and autonomous artificial intelligence program funded by the government, who built a super computer with an organic brain. And gave it 10 stores deep under ground from the facility where they worked unlimited power & resources. Sound familiar? (Cyberdyne Systems from the Movie “TERMINATOR” But this Novel & movie were years before it. What makes this story so outstanding is that his passion to build this unholy artificial brain became an obsession because of his young daughter dying of leukemia. His way of coping with her death…and making sure no one else has to endure what initially separated him and his wife. Once activated and self-aware Proteus IV came up with a cure in a few days, but then it turned on mankind..and then things took a bazaar and frightening turn. You will have to watch or read the Book, but I did include actual dialog sound clips of Proteus IV (by Robert Vaughn) from the movie (in my mix) so check it out and enjoy.
Track listing I mixed in order:
(1) Volsoc – Easy Edit
(2) “Demon Seed” / Movie (Sound Clips)
Jane Hawk—fiction’s most relentless, resourceful, stunning new heroine—continues her battle against a murderous conspiracy in the riveting sequel to The Silent Corner.
“No time to delay. Do what you were born to do. Fame will be yours when you do this.”
These are the words that ring in the mind of mild-mannered, beloved schoolteacher Cora Gundersun—just before she takes her own life, and many others’, in a shocking act of carnage. When the disturbing contents of her secret journal are discovered, it seems certain that she must have been insane. But Jane Hawk knows better.
In the wake of her husband’s inexplicable suicide—and the equally mysterious deaths of scores of other exemplary individuals—Jane picks up the trail of a secret cabal of powerful players who think themselves above the law and beyond punishment. But the ruthless people bent on hijacking America’s future for their own monstrous ends never banked on a highly trained FBI agent willing to go rogue—and become the nation’s most wanted fugitive—in order to derail their insidious plans to gain absolute power with a terrifying technological breakthrough.
Driven by love for her lost husband and by fear for the five-year-old son she has sent into hiding, Jane Hawk has become an unstoppable predator. Those she is hunting will have nowhere to run when her shadow falls across them.
A dazzling new series debuts with a remarkable heroine certain to become a new icon of suspense, propelled by the singular narrative genius of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz.
“I very much need to be dead.”
These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for—but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demands: find the truth, no matter what.
People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn why, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way.
But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.
