Nina's Hidden Glass

I’m starting composition on a new piece for Simon, currently entitled Nina’s Hidden glass.
I still don’t know what direction it is taking. I have been playing around with samples from Mozart’s Piano Concerto in C Major, and rhythm loops that I have developed from it. Then I added percussions - bongos and taiko drumsn marimba and layers of weird sounds from outer space.
That’s just the first draft. There’s a definite mesmerizing atmosphere to the music, in spite of the percussions which add a tribal ritual tone.
