The first piece ‘Sun-days’ was written across two different Sundays and as such has two distinct styles/moods, using the same source material.
’11 Wizards’ was conceived as the soundtrack to a dream I had experienced. Immediately after awakening I sought to replicate what I had heard in the dream, which was an epic, drawn-out, wizard battle royale. It began with a stalemate, which seamlessly shifted into a brief opening ceremony and then eventually the battle, which subsided into darkness. The entire dream was performed as if it were in 500 frames-per-second slow-motion, the soundtrack emulates this.
‘Returnal Occurence’ is the main theme within actual short film ‘Eternal Recurrence’, dir. Rob West (2014). Based upon the Nietzschian concept of an eternally re-occurring universe, it seeks to emulate this idea through it’s loopable nature whilst retaining a specific ‘beginning’ & ‘end’.
The 3 pieces were packaged together due to their compatibility & over-arching abstract principles.
