about

I created this music originally just for myself. I wanted to make an enveloping space to create a quiet atmosphere for my home.
It took me a long time to decide to share it because it was so different than what I usually write. I noticed that I was playing it all the time. It put me in a blissful mood. It had no point to prove and didn't hurry to get anywhere, it just unfolded at its own pace.
There are no loops... I played it all the way through, improvising in the key of C# minor. It actually took quite a few takes to get it the way I wanted it... I had to keep telling myself to play more slowly. I made several variations of a string pad sound on different synthesizers and would reach between several keyboards and the mixer to slowly change the tone as I played it.
