TUNE #2: Beach Compo


This was made way back in 2010 or 2011, I do not honestly recall. Feels like ages ago. As a piano player I wanted to explore the piano, not as a main voice in a tune, but as a rhythmical instrument. Further I wanted to depart from my comfort zone and attempt a swing rhythm. And this tune is what happened.

Occasionally I struggle to find a theme for my tunes, however, the lazy beach theme almost suggested itself. And it was an obvious fit. Originally I composed it in a key of E-flat major, but later transposed it into F major for no other reason than I felt like the music was not bright enough and elevating it an entire octave yielded… something more terrible than the end product, let us go with that.
