Awakening

As the first rays of daylight beam through the trees, the darkened forest slowly awakens. Diurnmal creatures stir from their slumbers as the warmth of the sun reaches their burrows and nests. The chatter of the woods begins once again as critters large and small scurry across the forest floor.

Men, women and children—some awakened by the natural light of the sun and others by a buzz of an alarm clock—rub their sleepy eyes and rise to face a new day. Will there be a moment of reflection to ponder... perhaps a fresh new perspective, a new beginning to the day ahead or will it be just another rush to get up quickly and jump start the day?

Music
From waking up from a nightly slumber, stirring from a mid afternoon nap or becoming suddenly aware of something, an awakening can have a variety of meanings. The opening stately fanfaresque melody is meant to invoke a call to action upon awakening. The tune slowly evolves into a sedate yet driven groove mirroring the wakened state: rejuvenated and active, once again pursuing the daily routine as well as life-long ambitions. The coda is an uptempo recapitulation of the opening fanfare—a reminder of the call to action that rekindles the spirit after every slumber...

This composition features the Native American flute and an amalgamation of synths and percussion.
