This is a real simple arrangement built around a chord progression I was fiddling with on my guitar. I recorded the guitar first and then overlaid three very minimalist midi tracks. The tune doesn’t go anywhere, but that’s the point. There’s a place in music writing where it’s almost the equivalent of staring at the sky for so long that you lose your sense of distance. In this case, I also forgot for a moment if I was looking at a sunrise or a sunset. If that doesn’t make sense, that’s okay.
