Sounds all from the Korg Gadget ipad app, except voice by my father, street name: 2 Sanguine. Exported to Ableton for arranging, a few effects, some reverb, delay, compression, eq, and standard master channel stuff. Was having stressful week at work and didn't find time or energy to sit down for my normal process of creating things on the Push, but pulled the ipad out as I was nearing sleep for a few nights and created these parts, slower than I usually go at 75 bpm reflecting the state of mind. This was my first real dive into the Gadget app, which has some very cool sounds I look forward to playing with more. I have been bugging my dad, who's recently retired, to record some nuggets of wisdom for posterity (and for his son's sample fodder), and this came into my inbox this week. I I need to ask him about this, but when I heard this I believe he's speaking about reaching a heightened or transformed state through meditation-like practices and I thought it could fit with this mellow piece I was cooking. The music has has a somewhat dark undertone, with some moments of light and while reaching a heightened state can be uplifting and light, there can be some darkness to confront and pass through on the journey as your "small self" vanishes.
