One of a series of 14 trance instrumentals using presets on Absynth 5 (Native Instruments).
Created over 8 days at sea between South Australia and Tasmania on MV Astor (CMV cruises), whose wake provides the video. Start and end graphic is MV Astor at anchor off Penneshaw, South Australia.
Each piece is named by the preset used, in this case "Peppermint Pad", designed by Hans-Jörg Scheffler.
Played in on a 25-note (2 octave) keyboard--M-Audio Ozone--hence a heavy reliance on drones and suspensions to allow more octaves to be switched in.
The 14 songs played in were a completion of the February Album Writing Month in absentia! www.fawm.org
