The core of this track was started few years ago in Bristol, Barnaby's living room, on iMaschine for iPad, sketched in 30 minutes or so I think. That initial idea is the beat we can hear at the end after Alan Watts inspiring words.
If you wonder who's talking in the intro, it's Richard Linklater, a guy who makes films and has a huge influence since 2013 (again, props to Barnaby Carter for introducing me to the man). Listen to the full inspiring interview here : youtu.be/T6t_f_aWd_4
It's not mastered, so you might feel that it's less loud than the rest, which is cool. I work carefully on the mixing, it's important to me to keep the dynamics and not over-compress it (or at all). It's made mainly with my pair of headphones, so it's better when enjoyed on proper headphones, in silence.
