I've been grooving on this track for a few weeks now - there's just something about it that I can't get out of my head - and that's a good thing - I think!
A relatively short track for the Essay writing list but it rewards repeat listening. It's the soundscape that I fell in love with - sure the hypnotic underlying groove picks you up and drags you in, but it's the variety of sounds that keep you interested.
It isn't the most sophisticated of pieces - it comes from an album of the composer's early works - but the simplicity of the beat track actually compliments the entire piece and I just want to fall into it again and again and again...
I reached out to Yann and asked him where the track came from:
And that's the brilliant thing about music isn't it - just reading Yann's story and sensing the state of excitement he must have been in - to my ears anyway - I'd never have suspected a track of this almost "foreboding" would have come from such an inspiration! ;-p
But that's also why I love music so much - it doesn't matter where it comes from or what the composer originally intended - the minute it's out in the world it's yours, mine, everybody and anybody's and its meaning is unique to us alone.

About the Curator: Andrew McCluskey
The first visual memory I have is that of the white upright piano in Singapore, Hell and the dark forces lived at the bottom, Heaven and the Angels at the top. They would play battles through my fingers and I was hooked.
Although I've always played, I haven't always been a musician. Most of my twenties were spent working with people, buying and selling and learning how the world works. It was in my thirties that I came to America and focused on music and began to develop music2work2.
