Xing is Crossing

When creating our CSI:Munich ZFS Video, it became clear to us that music was going to play an important part. The unpacking Thumper scene and the building of the USB-Stick-Cluster scenes clearly demanded some fast paced techno music and the whole command-line session would have become quite boring without some light background music. All of this was quite easily done thanks to Garageband and as a result of this experience I ended up upgrading to Logic Express and an M-Audio Axiom 49 USB Keyboard Controller so I can try doing some real music for future projects.
But the title music had to be real. We needed a good, hand-made, progressive rock track that transports the spirit of ZFS. So I asked our colleague Tom Henzen who happens to be a drummer for a band called Xing. Xing is a new progressive rock band based in Munich that recently played together with the good old-school rockers from Nazareth.
We listened to a couple of tracks from their latest CD "Independence", which is a great album. There were a number of candidates that really stood out becuase of their great sound and spirit, so we had quite a difficult choice. In the end, we went for their song "Don't want to live without you". What better way to describe ZFS in just 7 words!
