Day 8: A dramatic vista

Updated: Feb 23, 2021



Getting back into the music that I started on Day 5, the first order of business was finding the right sonic environment. This took the whole morning: rhythm programming, sound design, and sequencing. By lunchtime, I had a very strong bed going, and went outside for a walk in Central Park. The North Meadow is covered in snow today, which looks quite dramatic.


With this view still lingering in my mind, I came back to the studio and began building the piano part. This ended up being very challenging, and I recorded 5 takes before finding an approach with enough breath and space.



How does this music feel to you? Any images or emotions conjured up by it? (Please comment below).

This is my favorite of everything so far.

Mix 5: 1:46 percussion kicks in. If Mix5 is planned to follow MixB1, my preference would be for Mix5 to start out loud, say by starting at 1:46 of Mix5. Then I would like for section 2 to be high volume entirely, as an alternative to a meditative-bold-meditative for section 2. Just my thoughts. I may have too much symphonic classical music in my head (Mahler, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, etc.) , although I listen to Hearts of Space more than WQXR for the last couple of years.

I put this segment on repeat during my workout today, which involved a lot of stretching and Yoga-type moves. I found the crescendo quite energizing. This segment seems a worthy successor to to others in its send of peace and profound.
