This is a slightly older song which I recorded about a year or so ago and was completely done on the Garageband program on a Macbook without recording any live instruments. I was experimenting with simplicity in an attempt to trim down the excess randomness and spontaneity of free experimentation. By constraining myself to a few sounds and a few moods, I can arguably achieve a more coherent song, especially since the equipment I am using is extremely amateur.
The sounds of this song remind me of ethereal ducks splashing in and out of sight through clouds with blinding light as I rise and soar over all the universe, radiating my love to quench all fear. But hey, on the other hand, it is a very simple song. At the moment it emerged, however, it seemed to rise from deeper depths than previous expressions of mine, and left me with a lasting inner glow, so I called it Soaring…Radiating to capture this nuance.
