Collaboration with Susanne
It’s a summer’s evening in the country. The air is moistening, but still warm. Our friend’s summer celebration has just begun, the tent is pitched, and we take a look down the hills before joining the party.
This is the light version (pun intended) of an evening atmosphere, dusk in this case meaning the beginning, not the end of something…
The musical piece this time consists of far more than the usual one-man-improvisation: though it began exactly like that, it was elaborated as a multi-track-tune, re-recorded and in the end Susanne sang partly improvised, partly well-arranged melodies to it. I can publish tunes like this only once in a while – or it would be just one post a month. But I liked the light atmosphere of the original improvisation so much, it brought up a bunch of additional ideas.
For those curious about the original, I add it here. It may be interesting to follow the evolution of this piece:[audio:dusksolo.mp3]
