This was my first foray into studio composition. What is so enticing is the ability to combine any sounds through mixing, creating a very open-ended environment for orchestration. Multiple recording were made in a variety of locations, and then put together for a single movement work.
Influences range from african rhtyhms, miles davis, raga, 16th century counterpoint, and new age.
