Music: Good Night, Day

I stumbled across this piece on Soundcloud this morning and, although it’s not the kind of music that normally excites me, something about it does intrigue me. I keep waiting for the theme to resolve, to launch into a recognizable melody, to become, but it never does, not completely. And yet…

The closest I can come to describing this music is to compare it to fallen leaves caught up in a gentle breeze. Sometimes they tumble along the ground, and sometimes they take flight, just for a moment. There is no discernable pattern to the movement, and yet it feels natural.

Could I spend hours listening to tracks like this one? Probably not, but I do admire the composer, Johann Johannsson, for being able to create it. In my not so humble opinion, it’s well worth the few minutes it takes to listen to the track.

cheers
