The Journey (Full Work) by Diederik de Jonge by Diederik de Jonge published on 2013/04/08 12:45:29 +0000 I released this album in 2011 but only ever released a few excerpts onto SoundCloud. Given that I have plenty of space on here now, I thought I would upload it in is entirety. To give you some background, this work was originally created over a period of several months in early 2010. It was then left for a while and revisited in April 2011. Only a few minor changes were made, mainly on the production side, to get to the final version. I started with the basic idea of going on a journey. The writing/creating/performing progressed in a linear fashion, that is, I started with the opening sequence and just developed from there creating in the end a single work of about 54 minutes. This I later divided into chapters to make it easier to navigate. The names of the chapters are listed below. It is fair to say that this is a very personal project, and at the time, a huge learning curve. But I enjoyed making it and that is all that matters. Thank you for taking the time to listen. 1. Time Waits For No Man 2. The Holy River 3. Reflections Of The Hills Over The Water 4. The Lowlands 5. Tribes of the Mountains 6. Caravan Across The Desert 7. Fields Of Grey 8. The Dark Forest 9. Breaking Through 10. A Reunion Of Friends 11. Thoughts Of Home 12. Entering Nirvana If anyone is interested, this album is available on Bandcamp, CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon and more.
