Tortuga by WillArd published on 2013/06/16 20:11:02 +0000 I always bring a keyboard with me when I travel. Sometimes it sits around, collects dust, and I end up unpacking it without using it at all. Regardless, I plopped my two octave USB keyboard in my backpack last week before setting out for Mexico, and I'm glad I did. Whenever there was downtime, I got to work designing new synth patches, siding-chaining stuff together, and whatever I could do to pass the time until we were off for more adventure. I've found that music composition is like a small bottle. One can cram a little world into a song, taking hints from reality and imagination, and carry it along wherever he or she goes. I wrote this song after snorkeling with turtles, and I'll have it as a keepsake.
