Apache Moon

This piece took on a life of its own. It soon departed from what I had originally intended, decided there really wasn’t a lot that could compliment its structure and wanted to stand mostly on its own. Only about 30 seconds remain of the tune I had chosen, Eternal Flame from Future Forever by Ion. The rest is entirely a Wolf original.

Apache Moon was my brother and a friend, a wolf who was truly one of a kind. Born to an unscrupulous breeder he was never allowed release into the wild and lived out his incredible 16 years in a sanctuary. During the few years I knew him he taught me a great deal about dignity, peace and what’s really important in life. His passing was deeply felt by the pack into which I was honored to be accepted. This is my tribute to the sorrow of a spirit never destined to run free, and the joy of a life well-lived.

I used 3 Native American flutes, a 16-inch Native drum and a rain stick. The wolves of Wolf Mountain Sanctuary allowed their voices to accent the music. Apache Moon is among them.

I consider this my first draft, I think it could use a few improvements. It was suggested I should feature most of my own work in my music. I hope you enjoy it.
