It’s time again for another release by Mark Swanson, aka. The Aquaerials (you can read more here). Marks is an American composer living in Grand Rapids in Michigan.
Piano is not the only element in my music, but it’s the foundation of everything I write. Foliage definitely represents the lighter side of my music.
The track Foliage is released as a single, but is also be featured on the upcoming EP Empty Orchestra which was released late September of 2019.
Tell us something about your track Foliage!
The general theme of the Empty Orchestra EP is the change of seasons from Winter to Spring, which is when I wrote all these pieces. The first track, Funeral Season, is about the death of life during the Winter months. Foliage is about the rebirth of life after the thaw of Winter. My wife asked me to name one of my pieces “Foliage”, so I specifically wrote it with her title in mind. I usually name a piece of music after writing it, so without her suggestion, this song would never have existed.
Thank you for sharing this tune with us Mark!
