Something About You

Description
I was inspired to write this piece while driving down Pacific Coast highway just north of San Diego California. I just had to stop to walk on the beach. It was a brisk spring morning, with the breeze strong, chilling my face. While you are listening to this instrumental work, allow me to interpret what each instrument represents . . .
1) The Guitar is foamy water circling near the shore.
2) When you hear the piano arpeggios, it represents the sandpipers running to and fro on the shore.
3) The bass is the distant rumble of the waves returning to the ocean.
4) The strings are the ever changing winds.
5) The drums fills are the waves crashing on the beach.
Close you eyes and listen with an open mind and you will truly say to the ocean, there's "Something About You"

I can almost feel it . . .
As you pan the scene I can hear the different elements as they meet your gaze. Its all represented here. I always love when God's creation just overwhelms us with its majesty and beauty.
Well done,
Stephen

He, he ,he
I am glad you enjoyed a dip into the sea. While in college in a class called music theory the professor would play some music, our job was to close our eyes and listen. We then would write down how we pictured the music. This is called tone painting. This is the basis for this tune, my favorite part is the drums and the swelling of the strings. The strings were the most difficult to incorporate, because they needed to change like the wind. They are very dynamic and change from pianissimo to forte. I am glad you enjoyed. Now go get a towel.

What a great walk on the beach! Interesting idea to tie specific instruments to specific beach sights and sounds - cool! Terrific laid back beat - good job!
