I’ve always wanted to make a recording that allowed the Spanish guitar to speak gently. Islands is in free time with spacious intervals and echo for the soul to lift and float away.
The term Carpe Diem was first coined by lyric poet Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65 BC – 8 BC) in Odes Book I:
Dum loquimur, While we’re talking,
Fugerit invida aetas: Envious time is fleeing:
Carpe diem, pluck the day,
Quam minimum credula postero. Put no trust in the future.
Samples of a field recording made February 2011 from Tamborine Mountain, Queensland.
