The original title for this piece was going to be "Sometimes Life is Like That", but I shortened it because I'm a lazy typist. Many of the recent pieces I've been doing have been 'etude'-like things, intended to explore some software, an algorithm, new hardware, and it occurred to me that it's been awhile since I've done a piece because I felt that way (like the horror I felt at the Norway massacre several years ago embodied in nor, or the melancholy in Three Hopeless Songs). I've been pretty depressed the last few weeks, for reasons I don't particularly want to broadcast on the web. So I did this piece.

I kind of like these 'feeling' pieces, because I can listen to them in the future and partially recall what it was like to be Brad back then. Plus the doing of them helps as a kind of music therapy.
