Among the Clouds

I was on an airplane when I looked out the window and saw clouds slowly passing by. This sparked an urge to sit down and compose. There is a sense of tranquility I wanted to convey with a mix of both fantastic and mundane elements; why? I'm afraid of heights, and here I was, calmly looking out the window while miles up in the air...

I sense some sort of urgency when the track starts. The strings that back the track certainly do have a light feeling accompanying that, so I can see how flying inspired that. It seems somewhat conflicted, but I understand that is what you are going for. I can picture this playing during some sort of montage where we see a character growing and overcoming a fear or a climactic moment. It is a composition that builds up just fine.

Despite that slight bit of drama in there, it does sound chill. Not a bad track to study to or put in the background while you are doing something.

Good track. I wouldn’t mind hearing what else you have cooking up.
