A while back I said I was going to take a little break from remixing to write some original music. "Dream Castle" is the first fruit.
For D's birthday I wanted to do a piece inspired by one of her favorite paintings. Since BT already claimed "Flaming June", I picked Maxfield Parrish's "Dream Castle in the Sky".
The best way to enjoy this piece is with a pair of headphones, standing in front of the massive (10' x 6') canvas at our own Minneapolis Institute of Arts (3rd floor near the period rooms).
At the very least, you should have this (admittedly weak) imitation on your screen when you listen: http://www.the-athenaeum.org/art/full.p
