When I redesigned this site earlier this year, my idea was to treat it like an audio blog…a way to post new music regularly which you could download. While I’ve been releasing singles and putting up videos, I haven’t really kept up with the blogging side of things.
So this is me getting back on track. Here’s the audio from the “You Are My Natural Selection” video I uploaded a few weeks ago. A lot of people seem to really like the track, so here it is for you to download.
The title comes from a chapter in Richard Dawkin’s book The Greatest Show on Earth. I generally find the topic of evolution and natural selection fascinating, and something about that chapter title resonated with me.
The music is basically one idea which slowly evolves, building towards a climax. It was a challenge to find the right balance between repetition and variation while not losing any of the momentum.
