stained glass III - live improv

this third track, is by far the longest improv, I can't believe that I held between one and three fingers firm onto a tablet screen for ten and a half minutes, just to make this music - but I did. and I also cannot beleive just how intricate, complex, interwoven and downright beautiful VOSIS is on this track - it's my personal favourite.

again, some moments where I brought my three fingers into close proximity of each other, fingertips all touching in fact, and this produced long periods of calm, where that pure sine wave just gets into your head and you start dreaming - and five minutes later, you wake's such a beautiful sound. OK, there are a couple of dark and strange moments, it's not all beauty, but I think you need some atonal parts, to add to the mood, but more importantly, to provide a contrasting sound that only serves to heighten the beauty of the beautiful parts.

this piece has a wonderful, wonderful beginning, one of the strangest song beginnings I can remember - it's simply out of this world, you couldn't plan this - but there it is - I will leave you to discover what that short introductory section sounds like, in the meantime - "stained glass III" is one of those pieces that just ticks every box, and I have no issues with it - perhaps my only complaint, is that it does not go on forever...
