this tune was the first tune of my set with at the 2020 network music festival and i first performed an early version of this in the desert. it's about different frames of reference: a town at different times in your life, a setting in different seasons, different shoes to walk in, coming back to a familiar place after a long walk, or what have you.

expanded on my last tune from the live set this past sunday and named it after a place where i went on my first camping trip along with friends i made in the desert

there was this pop tune on the radio which I found p bland but it was going for this epic orch thing w superreverby pillowy strings + epic bass drum w the mix superwet but the reverb tails were cut super short so as to not muss up the mix and I totally have to steal that idea now

last night i dreamt about tramways full of movable houses with bounce house walls and wood floors (which prob wouldn't make bouncing too fun but who am i to judge). they housed people who knew it'd be the closest they'd ever be so there was this whole other thing too
