naviarhaiku328 – flowering fields

When Naviar share a haiku describing the current season in the northern hemisphere, it puts me in a mind to respond to the season in the southern hemisphere.

So I was kinda torn this week when the poem described spring and I'd been hanging around the flowering mint in my yard, photographing butterflies.

Then I remembered I've been meaning to try composing using Elektroplanton, the Nintendo DS game from 2005 designed by Toshio Iwai.

I liked the idea of using the colourful leaves to evoke autumn and to expand the boundaries of my music-making.

The soundtrack you hear is a result of taking that performance and using it as MIDI information through a couple of VST synths.

I chose sounds that reminded me of insects circling.
