Well, I thought I’d made another entry a couple weeks ago, but apparently I made a mistake in entering and this will be my first entry.

Obviously, there’s only about a week until the track will go up on the site, so I guess I should explain my motivation and inspiration for starting it out.

After starting about 5 different tracks and completely scrapping them (just wasn’t feeling it), I actually got inspired by the weather here. Things had been unseasonably warm up until just over a week ago, then we finally got a cold snap. Walking out into the brisk air one evening, I remembered that one of my favorite things to do to clear my head is to simply put on a pair of headphones with some appropriate music and walk around at night in the cold weather (snow underfoot is a bonus).

With that in mind, I started about creating a (hopefully) lush and dense track that will be a nice accompaniment to walking around with headphones on (under a stocking cap) at night during these winter days. It will hopefully sound interesting enough listening to it through computer speakers, but to really get the true effect, it should be burnt to CD and listened to as above…

More soon…
