Hey, we got one more in!
I spent WAY too much time on this, but it was like a drug.
So much to say so bear with me. The idea for the track came from Tycho's Awake, hence the slight change in name. However, Aware also has to do with my observation that we, as sentient creatures, seem to be so unaware of what is going on around us. We bury our heads in our electronic devices and are oblivious to those around us, the needs of those around us, the struggles of those around us. Beyond us, I wonder how much is really going on that we don't perceive but might if we just took moments to stop and take in all that we could perceive at any given moment in time. So that's the story.
The outro section is where the chromatic movement takes place and it is harmonic rather than melodic. It was inspired by the song, Summer Soft by Stevie Wonder.
I had the original idea, gave it to Kristian in a very raw form and he, as usual, backed up the truck and dumped a vast assortment of ideas on me. It's like opening a box of chocolates.
I highly recommend headphones for listening.
Kristian: I already loved the original track that Michael sent, so I just took the track and threw alot of stuff on it.. ALOT of stuff... poor Michael had to wad through loads of tracks and has done an amazing job og gluing this all together.. total ear candy
