Nothing without industry

Another slow burner. For months, I had nothing much more than the melodica and bass parts that appear at the beginning of the track. Things only really started to progress when I recorded the sound of traffic in gridlock on my mobile phone, on a drizzly sunday afternoon. I incorporated the recording into the track, and eventually a structure began to emerge, although it has still taken many months to finish. Despite these frustrations, this has still been a useful lesson in persisting with such a track until it’s completion (as opposed to just leaving it unfinished and abandoned on the hard drive of my laptop).
