This song was composed in 1997 and appeared as a solo guitar piece on my 1998 CD "Stories Without Words". This new version uses the actual guitar track from that CD, although a few seconds were trimmed from the intro and the ending and it was touched up with chorus effect and digital delay for use here. Every track was recorded in real time, the percussion was "played" on a synth that was programmed to make drum sounds when pressing the keys, the synth was then programmed to make a, well, "synth" sound, and was recorded in one take. It was then divided into four sections that were each altered slightly in an audio editor thereby giving subtly different sounds as the song progresses. The bass guitar track was also given the audio editor treatment, taking it into a sort of brassy/metallic realm. I think this recording reflects some of the prog influences I've soaked up over the years, early 70's Genesis and more recently Icelands Sigur Ros. Click here Soundclick to listen.
