Forest Portrait - A Journey Within

Music:
An orchestral interpretation of a mesmerizing trek into the forest. Enveloped by a lush forest canopy, witnessing the amazing variety of verdant life and varied lanscape that surrounds you is a transformative experience. The melodic motifs used in the last section should be recognizable in a familiar Beatles song. The opening percussion loop was downloaded from Looperman: Rust In Cage.
