Book Chase is one of a few tracks I wrote for the filming of a project I and a colleague created for the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon, which consisted on bringing one class from primary school of a poor district to college. One of the activities was finding their way to the library in search for some books, as if they were researchers in a treasure hunt. I think it went quite well and I would like it to be extended to more classes as a service provided by the university, but we didn’t have the resources.
This track is one of my favorites, that being the reason to publish it first. I used the same composition technique in all of them, while intending, for the first time, to use a very restricted set of instruments. This prompted me to invest on rhythmic structures, exotic time signatures and strange chord sequences, with melodic lines settled on arpeggios. I had a lot of fun!
