I first heard colab’s “Piano 3/4” loop in Feb 2009. Those simple-sounding notes and progression (whose simplicity belies a certain sophistication, imho) really connected with me. I parked the loop under my “ccMixter Ideas” playlist for a future remix. A few days ago, in between Secret Remix #6, I worked out something that hopefully captures the poignancy I hear in colab’s piano sample. Serendipitously, I also found _ghost’s 2006 upload, which had the right feel I wanted to create.

Named this “Circle of Life”. I would associate this instrumental track with words like “dreams”, “emotions”, “beginning”, “end”, “cycle”, “birth”, “death”, “rebirth”. Not that I’m feeling particularly melancholic or anything. It just IS. I’ve also titled this “Thread One” because I’m working on a second version to this. I’m having so much fun with colab’s piano sample.
