Beneath Another Sky features two ambient compositions. Titled Suddenly and Always, the two pieces explore different views of a single idea.
Imagine you find yourself in an unfamiliar place. It's night and you lay under an open sky. Free from preconceptions about your surroundings, your mind is open to seeing things as they actually are, not how you think they are or expect them to be. This is the premise represented by the lush, musical atmosphere both compositions in Beneath Another Sky are based upon.
Track 1, Suddenly, is a musical exploration of momentary awareness and aims to symbolically express the wonder and delight of unexpected beauty. A falling star, a drifting cloud, the shimmer of light from distant suns. It's the appearing and disappearing, coming and going, rising and falling of phenomenon that reminds us life is ephemeral, and our challenge is to be as open as possible to both the depth and span of where we find ourselves in this moment.
The second track, Always, is a representative view of the fathomless expanse of which our experience of passing moments is an integral part. Behind every shift and change is an eternal consistency so pervasive and absolute that our usual state of mind misses it completely. It isn't something that happens, but the unending context that things happen within. It's here one realizes that ultimate "value" isn't found in what things are, but that they are.
