Although not all the music is ‘pinned down’ at this stage and much is left still open for change, I am about ready to write ideas for the opening and closing music that may play as the audience enters and leaves. I am going to keep it separate from the other thematic material and just have a ‘stand alone’ piece.

Although I have a piano at my disposal I have been itching to use an indian harmonium for ages and I want to capture a minimal element that perhaps resonates something from the early periods of musical development. Nothing too ‘cave-man-like’, something closer to the spiritual music of the 13th and 14th century (of course, with a little of me thrown in to boot)!

Here are some early reflections with the Indian Harmonium  and it goes without saying steeped in a cathedral type reverb.
