naviarhaiku443 – just before sunrise

The haiku shared by Naviar Records prompted me to look for the footage I shot at Valla Beach earlier this year.

Then I looked through my folder of unfinished music and found the germ for this track.

I considered how "the quiet mystery of dawn" might sit among the noisy synths and tried to find a space for it.

It's surprising how every crashing waves seems to coincide with something audible, even though the composition was largely created without looking at the video.

However, I did try to have the sun rise into frame during a quieter moment.
