This a piece I wrote in January 2015. My second piece of the year.
It is summer here in Australia, so that is reflected in the story of the piece (Winter moves into the warmer months of Spring and Summer).

I wrote this piece for Piano and String Ensemble. All parts are written and played by me (I play through my MIDI keyboard into Logic X).

Please note that the video goes for a long time after the last chord because the piano harmonics are still audible, so you can turn up your speakers to get those very soft tones if you like :)

I may have this performed this year at my University (Sydney Conservatorium of Music), and if I do I'll make sure to upload a live version of it!
