The original plan with this set of songs was to create a very slow paced, minimalist album. A friend had suggested maybe trying
"a chill out album" so that was the intention at the start of the project. And the first of the tracks that I wrote, "The Children's Gift," was
more or less what I had in mind at that point. However, as the project tootled along, it became pretty obvious that the songs were going
in a very different direction to what I'd planned.
I don't like forcing any creative project to go in a direction that it clearly isn't going, so I decided to continue with the songs and see what
happened. The end results are mostly much slower paced songs, but someone described them as "lush and big, maybe even majestic." Which seemed somewhat
grandiose, maybe, but we'll go with that decription then.
