Recent Projects – Wandering Not Far From Home

In my ongoing effort at creating interesting but most unstructured compositions, I started this project by sitting down and doodling out a 4-min guitar improvisation. Adding some deep accompanying synth – sufficient I think to expand the work outside of its narrow tonal range – helped capture my mood at the time. A somewhat randomly upbeat percussion section helps move things along.

I am reminded of the adventure of, well, wandering near to home – around the neighborhood; meeting people, encountering both natural and man-made environments in concert. The beat is the energy that comes from exploration and discovery while the rest of the piece relates to the calm and comfort of being in a familiar place.

Let me know if this piece moves you – even if it’s to nausea (although I’d prefer more positive responses).
