A short waltz piece inspired by the minimalistic compositions of Erik Satie. The sparse, single instrumentation of his pieces has been abandoned in favour of complementary electronic sounds. The main motif is alternately played by piano, classical guitar and a khim (zither / dulcimer-like eastern instrument)....

A quick sketch in the "acoustic-slide-guitar-recorded-in-the-kitchen"-vein. To break with potential roots-music connotations the MS-20 style filter on the KORG Monotron features heftily for all things bass and rhythmic.

At the end the original demo - recorded on mobile phone in a less than hi-fi manner - makes an appearance as the low fidelity ambiance seemed to suit the piece, and the composition remained unaltered.

Short piece originating on acoustic guitar, written and performed for the ivories.

The piece is deliberately short, apart from a single appearance of a bridging section featuring a brief accompaniment on electric guitar, the piano theme is a repeating motif, altered slightly every few bars or so.

Aural weaponry of interest evident on this recording: the Bazantar software instrument by 8DIO provides both organic percussive sounds and breezy strings.
