This track started as an experiment, a first attempt at using microphones, in significantly less than ideal conditions. The takes were noisy, and in need of much EQ. Any pro, or competent amateur, would have discarded them. However, there was something in the quality of the snippets of recorded music that kept drawing me back, encouraging me to try to work them into an acceptable form.

Ten months passed between the first notes being struck and this version emerging. It isn't 100%, has rough edges, but it has a pleasing quality, took me in a direction that I hadn’t anticipated, and many lessons were learned during the process of creating it that can be applied to subsequent pieces.

Yes, the track is 'quiet' when compared to much other available music. This is principally a result of the previously mentioned deficiencies in the recording environment and my lack of expertise in dealing with them. I didn't really know what I was doing, and so the recordings had way too much energy in the mid range. Once most of this was EQ'd out, a very weak signal remained. It might have been possible to boost the volume of the final master by using tools such as compression, but this would have squashed all of the life out of it. I decided to retain the dynamics, and leave the listener to play with the volume dial. Sorry, will do better next time.

Some would argue that the success, or otherwise, of a person's activities can be measured by their influence upon others.

Others would have you believe that the true measure of success is how happy your bank manager is to see you.

I am not convinced of the validity of either argument, am of the opinion that the outcome of any given pursuit is beside the point, the point being the pursuit itself.
