During my Computer Music & Sound Art class (2nd college semester), I created this piece so that the listener could have his head in the clouds at one point and be quickly led on the open road, driving a supercar (or really anywhere you might choose to be, these where mine :)).

As some self-reflection, I think the high contrast between the beginning and the middle give makes this piece more surprising and interesting. Halfway through you completely forget how everything started and how you got there, but you know that you are, so you enjoy it better!

By the end of the middle section, you’re brought back to a more grounded reality and finally back to true reality, but with a good sense of having explored your dreams and maybe even with the will of accomplishing them…

All in all, I’m very proud of my piece: it’s a song that I would easily listen to in my own time. That being said, if I were to redo-it I would change the transition between some parts and add some more variety in each section.
