Here's the final video for MusicVideoMonday... "Sonik Dissonance [elven style]" by Stratos. "Sonik Dissonance [elven style]" is a holiday remix of the first song ever composed by Stratos. The original version was written and released for an independent film called The Screen in late 2000. While wrapping up production responsibilities for the soundtrack, Stratos decided to record new dance/techno arrangements of popular Christmas music. In 2001, Stratos released Cosmic Christmas. To support Cosmic Christmas, Stratos began performing live in cafes, clubs, etc. around Columbus, Ohio. During the shows, Stratos often added songs from his catalog and gave them the holiday treatment; "Sonik Dissonance" was one of those songs.
In 2003, Stratos compiled most of the original Christmas material, added in various holiday mixes originally arranged live, and released techNO*EL in limited numbers while performing for his third consecutive holiday season. In November 2008, Cosmic Christmas was remastered and re-released exclusively through RPGNow.com/DriveThruRPG. Finally, in 2010,everything was compiled to form TechNO*EL - the Definitive Edition on CD and download at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/stratos9.
