Trail Ride

This started as a drive toward rockabilly that shifted into sort of a “Western Twang” sound. I’m pretty happy and take pride in the guitar sounds I was able to achieve on a computer keyboard.

Instrumentation – Drums. Upright Bass, Clavinet, Guitars

Today’s Track from Soundtracks In Search Of A Film is definitely snow and ski related.

Zarameyuki Cycles

Zarameyuki is the Japanese word for “corn snow.” Corn snow is my second favorite type of snow to ski, with fresh powder being my favorite. For corn snow to develop there needs to be cycles of melting and freezing of snow which often occurs in the spring. This song goes through three sections or cycles representing the early morning freeze followed by a melt or thaw and then ends with a refreeze or setup in the evening.

Instrumentation – Synthesizers, Orchestral Kit, Harp, Marimbas, Orchestral Choir Voices, Upright Bass

Shoulder On My Sunshines

This was originally a slower track that matched giant slalom turns through soft snow in the Canadian Rockies. After being sped up a bit, it is more like slalom turns powered by two large cups of Tim Horton’s coffee.
