Finn Arild - Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards
Reidar Viik - Piano, Drums, Keyboards

Musically things are equally strong footed, if somewhat less 'out there'. A 70s progressive base, where Arild's Peter Gabriel like vocals add to the music's already strong Genesis flavours, works alongside a sprinkling of Yes and slice of neo-prog. To be fair, Sonic Sight are hardly alone in using that as their starting point and yet there's no denying the deftness of touch and eye for the dramatic that's created throughout. It's hard, if not impossible, to call anything here even a little out of the ordinary but from start to finish the atmosphere built and the level of musical ability on display allows you to become thoroughly ensconced in the story at hand.
