A couple of days ago I found myself on a quite Sunday evening in a restaurant in Prato, Tuscany. I was the only customer. There was some lovely ambient music playing and along with the red wine, subdued lighting and lovely surroundings I became very relaxed and began to contemplate a new music project.
It would be a collection of very laid back and relaxing music and I would try to evoke “places” in each of the pieces. I’ll pull together photographs of places I’d like to evoke though some of them may be drawn from memory. The images will not be used in the final pieces which will be audio only but I may record actual sound in some of these places to include in the audio.
There are many places that have left a lasting impression on me and I hope these will provide strong inspiration for new musical pieces. I was contemplating this morning calling the collection “Places” but then I recalled a story I’d related recently here I decided to call it “Places In Time”.
