This work is a little like a personal meditation in composition. I wrote it by playing the violin and focusing on the different tone colours and melodic themes and motifs that most made me feel a sense of calm and enjoyment. The enjoyment that was felt included both auditory enjoyment - what I felt when listening to the sounds of the music as I was playing them; as well as physical enjoyment - what I felt when using variation in rhythm and tempo in the bowing arm, and what I felt through using variation in left hand positioning and other movements over the violin in the left hand.
To put it simply, I wrote what felt good to play.
