In the long run, this track is also going to have a tenor trombone option on it. However, I’ve been trying to write a version for the album since May, and it’s now August; usually, when it’s been that long, it means the version I have is the one I should be putting out. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. After all, making these fixed media tracks is one of my favorite parts of my practice! 

But I also wanted to put it out into the world because it’s a reminder to myself that things don’t necessarily have to be perfect in the way I’d originally envisioned to be valuable and worthy additions to our musical space. I don’t have to do this piece exactly like this for the rest of forever. My music can (and should, and will) keep evolving, but I am allowed (and encouraged) to love it for where it’s at. 

So, in the long run, tenor trombone. But, for now, just sit back and enjoy the rain.

Listen to all but impossible on Bandcamp. It’ll be available for performance soon.
