This single ambient piece took four years to complete - the ambient chord progression was composed and recorded sometime in 2013, and the accompanying piano composition was written only a few months ago. There are, undoubtedly, a number of other things I could do with it, but rather than continuing to spend time on a song that is more than ready to see the light of day, I've decided to release it for general consumption and enjoyment.
From the beginning, this song has reminded me of the ocean - one could either imagine being submerged in its depths, or looking out from a ship at night, and seeing nothing else but endless fields of black waves tossing rhythmically beneath the moonlight. My hope is that the song will provide the same kind of expansiveness and serenity that one encounters when seeing or being in/on the ocean.
