Ademloos (broken circles)

Ademloos geluisterd. Een soundtrack, muziek om bij te schrijven. Is mijn komende boek een script, dan is dit de track onder de ontknoping.Erg indrukwekkend Fred. Ontroerend. Dit snap je alleen als je wat in je hoofd speelt in een ander hart kan laten voelen.

De Pianopartij kun je met 1 vinger spelen.

Erg mooi gedaan Fred en heel bijzonder inderdaad. Klanken zijn boeiend (maar 6 minuten?). Middendeel is m.i. iets te lang waardoor de gedachten te veel afdwalen. Dat zou ik persoonlijk erg jammer vinden want het idee en de uitvoering zijn prachtig. Is de orkestmuziek ook verkrijgbaar bij je? Ik...
