Frank van Essen & Dave Bainbridge - Plains of Eternity

from Meditations of a Sound Mind vol. 1 by Frank van Essen



Dave and I improvised this track while displaying images of a vast landscape on the beamer in my studio in Collendoorn, back in 2011.
I left it, mainly unedited - so this is exactly how we played it at the time.
The ensemble strings and percussion were added in January 2020.
