Cosmos Yard

Composed for my sci-fi novel O Sentido Latente, this piece was a technical turning point to me. The melody on the long middle section was completely improvised, using the bass rhythm to guide me. Afterwards I matched the pitch of the bass with the melody, note by note, to achieve harmony. This was long before having any notion of the role of chords and progressions in music. I am particularly fond of the final result.
