A melody at last

Yesterday, I completed "Track B" by adding a melody, at last. I chose the low whistle for the melody and recorded the whole track in two takes. I like the sound of spontaneity, especially if there are imperfections in the performance (I'm fascinated by the Japanese wabi-sabi concept).

Renaming it "Farväl" (which is Swedish for "farewell"), I consider it complete. Listen here: Farväl

"Track A" now has a name

I have finally decided on a name for the beforementioned "Track A":

"Numbingly cold brass"

It's a reminiscence of winter gigs with my town's marching band at the square, in the morning, with a temperature below zero Celsius and no audience. Romantic, isn't it?
