Escape the rattle and hum of your day and disappear with me into the warm and beautiful tones of quiet and pleasant solo guitar featured in the natural surroundings of the morning meadow, by the seaside and in an outdoor field in the evening. Literally :) We've recorded my new guitar pieces as solo guitar works as usual, but after the 7 new tracks are featured, you'll notice a track 8 on this release. It places my new 7 pieces in Natural settings.
So enjoy these new pieces as solo guitar work and then also, as a special bonus, please enjoy them featured in natural settings in track 8!
Track 8 starts out a little dramatic...New York Minutes is placed in the unsettling urban soundscape of the New York City streets, but soon an escape is executed and the rest of the pieces on this album are featured in various natural outdoor settings, making for a very pleasant "escape from New York" :) Quietly enjoy!
Track 08: RESPITE GUITAR IN NATURE SUITE – 28:00
Have you ever just slipped away – alone – for a special “mental health” day…just you…from dawn to dusk…to breathe in the beauty of nature…to think…to ponder…to ruminate and to recover??
Well, we now have a soundtrack for your special day :)
Follow along as Polly Feeney, our protagonist, navigates her journey, starting with an early morning escape through her unsettling urban cityside clamor, rattle and hum…
Cue - NEW YORK MINUTES
…she clears the turnstiles to initiate her getaway from New York via the subway; and finds herself outside the city, embracing a reconnection with beauty of nature as she strolls through a fragrant and flowery green meadow…
Cue - MORNING GLORIES
…serenaded by the positive energy of bird calls under the watchful warmth of a sun-drenched morning on her way to a seaside retreat.
Once through the meadow and approaching the solitude of the waves lapping at the shoreline, Polly finally stops to relax on the unpopulated beach, enjoying the opportunity to breathe deeply and think clearly again.
Cue - SOLITUDE
She walks along at the side of the sea, which offers ample time and space to ponder life; and to reminisce about events in her life that have mattered most to her…
Cue - REMINISCENCES
…along with ruminating about the deeper remembrance of the dear loved ones who have played key roles in her life…cherishing and celebrating each memory.
Cue - REMEMBRANCES
Polly, continuing in the solitude of her walk, eventually comes across a beach area filled with families and children playing in the sand and sea, which enables her to embrace the positivity of family togetherness and love and allows her to recount a series of affirmations about her own life and plans for her future.
Cue - AFFIRMATIONS
Then, as the day begins to wind down and the sun plans it setting as evening falls, she departs the seaside for the peaceful warmth of a small outdoor cafe nestled in an open field where the nighttime sounds are teeming with life…
Cue - EVENING QUIETUDES
…where she sits back to relax and recover…in the quiet of the night while enjoying a superb glass of wine.
