A Few Notes on Leaving…
Although the track is short, it’s composition spanned many weeks. At the time, I was working as a cleaner at the University of Liverpool. At the end of my early morning shift, i would often sneak into the main lecture theatre and quietly sample a note or two on the beautiful old upright that lived there. Gradually, as i realised that no one was about to tell me off for doing it, the few notes i already had grew into a few more.
Soon enough, my visits where no longer about the actual composition, but more about perfecting my ability to perform it. The ultimate would be to enter the auditorium, perform the piece perfectly, and leave just as quietly as i arrived (with mop bucket in hand).
Not long after, other opportunities arose and I would leave the University. A few notes on leaving seemed to be a good title for the track.
