Song Description

Sit back, relax, close your eyes and take an audio journey to a Lazy Sunday, transported by rich, natural sound effects, sent soaring by the resonant voices of a chamber choir and gently energized by a jazzy, melodic theme, leaving you pleasantly refreshed and recharged. For the best experience, use headphones or earbuds.

Story Behind the Song

This song started out as a guitar picking exercise, which, over time, grew into a chord progression, which in turn, became the backbone of the tune. I decided to record it before it vanished into the tangled maze of matter that lives in my head. So record it I did. Then it vanished into the afore-mentioned tangled maze and I promptly forgot about it. Months later, I stumbled upon it while looking for something else. It sounded decent and felt like it had potential. With no idea where it would lead - I just started - and let one thing lead to another. When composing, I often don't really understand what I'm doing musically. I just work it and simply by trial and error I get it to where I like it. For example, I've never been a drummer, a bass player or a keyboardist, but I seem to be able to recognize when I get those tracks to sound decent. It's often only later I understand consciously what I did somewhat unconsciously at the time of creation. For this tune I did try to create a mood that would hopefully transport listeners to the feelings of a Lazy Sunday. Did it work for you?
