Starting off with some favorite tracks. The first one, ‘Rainy Wednesday’ was actually written on a Wednesday when it was raining probably sometime in 2000 or 2001. Early on capturing something literal about the environment and the mood was a good way to get the composing process started. It’s ended up being one of my wife’s favorites. It has a pretty fast beat, but is also fairly laid back giving it a somewhat calm energy.
The second track, ‘Unknown (Danger Grip)’ is just a down-tempo electronic … thing. Layers and melodies of which developed over time in the mid 2000’s during time spent in Urbana, IL and St. Louis, MO. By the end of the process I was really happy how all the different parts integrated with each other.
