Music is a funny thing.
I often find that small musical ideas are randomly placed in my head. Things such as melodies, chord progressions, and even song titles seem to pop out of nowhere.
I was on a break from work a few months ago when the title of this piece came about. I didn't know what it meant or if it had any real significance (and i still don't) but I kept the single word in my head and pondered what a piece of music with such a title would sound like.
Four months later, this is what finally came out.
At almost 7 minutes long, it's a piece that definitely requires some patience. It takes its time and I think it works all the better because of it. Once you reach that last minute and a half, everything that came before makes a lot more sense.
I didn't think much of it when it was complete and I listened to it for the first time. However, I've been playing it all week and I've grown to appreciate it more each time I hear it.
There's something about this one, but I can't quite put my finger on it just yet.
I debated whether or not to simply add this onto the end of my most recent album. It would make for a great final track and shares quite a few instrumental similarities with the rest of the music.
I ultimately decided no.
Instead of it being the end of something old, I'd rather this be the beginning of something new.
