Forever Bright

Forever Bright is a new composition with inspiration from some of my favorite minimalist composers, in particular Terry Riley. Terry Riley has long been a favorite of mine and I think this is reflected in the first section of this composition. The first section is titled 'Call' and features a simple figure that is repeated and interspersed with improvisation. The second section, titled 'Forever Bright,' features mixed meters and regularly repeating motifs. This section also has improvisation in several places.

This recording was made in the forest to the north of Oslo. This area of forest has an incredible reverb, though I don't think you can really hear it in the video.
