    March 4th, 2013. I was late for the Improv of the Month, so interrupted the "real" recording I was doing that day, grabbed a cello and laid down a track. At that moment, I had no idea how it would shape up - whether that one track would be the whole thing, or if it might lend itself to other overdubbed parts. Listening back, it did seem to have a bit of a form to it (funny how in art, when you don't think about it, form just "happens" sometimes) so I improvised a vocal part, using "the studio space" (apologies to Christopher Walken) as my inspiration. There was an obvious spot for a cello solo, so that was recorded last. Then, a bit of mixing, a little reverb...done! - until next month.

    "Lyrics" - such as they are:

    I sit inside this darkened studio
    Longing for the sun
    For something other than
    Artificial light, blackened, deadened sound

    Music to my eyes
    Imagining sunshine
    Music to my eyes
    Imagining sunshine

    Still inside my darkened studio
    The walls seem very close
    The sun seems very far
