Temple of the Sun

Ever since I heard the piano at the start of Mike Oldfields Sentinal I fell in love with its melodic sound and this tune really does compound the fact. After listening to it a few times on the trot it sounds like a few instrument playing a similar chord line or two. This makes it very easy to pick up the tune and hum/whistle along too always a bonus in my book. Also the faint bird chirping at 1 minute inn makes for a relaxing intro (ish) before picking up again to another good ending to an all round well executed piece

Studio Notes

This tune has a massive number of layers. Its style is quite different than any other i have done before. The whole tune is very complex and would need you to listen to it at least twice to get everything that is going on in the background. This is one of my favourite tracks.
