Winterscapes: A Meditation in Nature

Winterscapes: A Meditation in Nature

This video is simple footage I take regularly focusing on the seasons. I compose the music over the video in professional applications while watching the video with multiple synthesizers, and sometimes other instruments like live Didgeridoo. The music is created real time track by track quickly, using no quantization and very minimal editing, as the idea is that the music should reflect the feeling of the nature in the video. I give myself no more than 3 hours to complete the music for this series. It will likely never appear on any album or be officially released. But….you never know. If the requests came in & people would support it, I just might.

I have believed for a long time that our constant spreading and development as a species, is very much like that of a cockroach. Minus the fact that we are not nearly as sturdy as the cockroach. Our health, happiness and success depends very much on the delicate balance of the natural world around us. Should we spend too many more years waging war on that which keeps us alive, our success as a species will come to a likely bitter end. The planet will simply reabsorb everything, and start again in some unforeseen way.

I notice more every year that people seem to deem an understanding of how biology & geology works together to be “unimportant” and don’t actively make time for it. Yet, I would urge everyone to try to understand that it is literally “the” most important thing. Take even the biggest naysayer out into a truly beautiful natural space, and you will watch them light right up and change before your eyes in the most wonderful ways almost instantly.

My goal for the last several years is to use my music production, synthesis and composition background to aid in a meditation of sorts to consider such things. The entire “A Perfect Gradient Sky” album I released in 2014 is an example, and was a lofty goal. I hope you’ll consider joining me in taking part in something that is one of the most crucial choices man has ever faced on this planet. In past times, it was localized and seldom did anything truly impact globally except for a short time. Since mass industrialization of all things and a now booming population, we now have made extreme global impact. This is a first for the human race. Our time to ignore it will not be forever. A truly superb production for those interested in this subject should consider watching the PBS program “Humanity From Space“. It is a wonderful and accurate birds eye view of our species in general.
