"Lyra" - I really like spacey, ambient music and this song definitely was the result of my fascination with space. I expect to write some more cosmic related instrumentals in the future and maybe dedicate an entire album to the genre.
"A Break In The Rain" - Probably my favorite track. I like integrating a small, tasteful amount of natural sounds in songs. I particularly liked writing the synthesizer parts on this song.
"Concrete Jungle" - This song really doesn't belong with the others in that it's not an ambient, new age song. This was a complete creation with Garageband loops. I always picture walking along a New York City street after lacing up a new pair of sneakers. I think it would make a great backing track for a Nike commercial. Nike, are you listening?
"Grey Skies" - Let's face it, we don't always have the sunniest of dispositions. I started composing this song while I was in a dark mood, and then shelved it for a year or so and recently started working on it again late this year. Probably explains the transition towards the end of the track.
"Tranquility" - A pretty simple track really. I originally called this "Spa Song" because it's similar to what I always hear at the spa when I'm on vacation. It's very relaxing, quite tranquil. Ultimately, I changed the song title to "Tranquility".
