    So I had to use a single, continuous field recording as the foundation for a track and build on that sound. I had some dishes to do Sunday morning, so thought that'd be a kinda funny foundation to work from. Half way through, I looked out at how nice the day was and gave up scrubbing dishes in favour of sitting outside for a bit in the sunshine. I thought I'd run with that impulse, because it would add a bit of narrative to the thing...

    So most of the track is me taking in some morning sun on the deck, with birds, cicadas, and a visit from one of our cats...

    Most of the track is just the original recording, with a few changes in volume to e.g. accentuate the different sound environment in the kitchen and in the back yard. There's some granular pitch-shifting action from time to time, which I in turn loop at points. I added a synth chord progression after a lot of back and forth about whether I thought the track needed it.

    A wee pic from the garden...
