This tune I wrote in 2007 for my 3rd year VCA recital, originally for an ensemble consisting of piano, voice, violin and double bass.
The following year I rearranged the composition for the Nat Bartsch Trio for our debut EP. It is a free-ish tune, with the phrases providing a loose structure for the ensemble.
My aim was to create a free flowing chord progression with lots of unanswered harmonic ‘questions’, unified by a simple, singable melody. The final 8 bars of the progression provide some breathing space and a release of harmonic tension.
