  • Falling Leaves (Mono No Aware) - Single

    I'm happy to announce I've released a new single in anticipation of my upcoming album Remnants Of Late Colour. It's titled "Falling Leaves (Mono No Aware)". It can be download here: Store

    Below is a description of the piece.

    Falling Leaves (Mono No Aware) is an electroacoustic/ambient composition completed over the winter of 2011-2012. It premiered at the Further Series Electroacoustic 2012 Concert in Vancouver. 

    The piece begins with a crescendo of sound highlighted by two melodies looping out of sync with one another. A drifting sense of time slowing down is created as a sound collage of falling leaves is introduced. As the piece progresses, several high pitched tones slowly bleed through the mix, gradually enveloping everything, before it all fades away. 

    The title “Falling Leaves (Mono No Aware)” refers to the Japanese term used to describe the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things, and a gentle sadness at their passing.
