The JourneyThe Journey
Not only has the title of this track always been Journey it has actually been on a true journey over the past two years. It all started in my temporary appartment in Aachen during the West Side Story rehearsals, I was hanging out with a good friend of mine and writing some music. I took a track off the original soundscape from the show and stretched a second out to four bars. After sweeping some filters I got an addicting hook out of it.
During that time I was composing Lullaby a 7 act piece by Mellanie Chrissy Bos and decided to use the music for that piece. After some time I made a long, 10 minute soundscape version for an improvisation dance I did with Rahul Goswami.
The piece went from Aachen to Groningen to Amsterdam and back to Aachen where I finished the current arrangement. Fast forward, two years later I decided to mix and master this track again. With the huge pad and the classic West Side Story snaps I can't help but feel nostalgic about it, thanks for listening and stay tuned.
