Here's a weird one that came outta who-knows-where -- staccato strings, stacked piano, and sitar join forces in this breathy, major chord east-west pattern. I suppose this is a sort of Philip Glass-style take on classical Indian music (or is it...?).
This Spanish-inspired madrigal is a little bit somber and little bit strange. I recorded it with an out-of-tune piano and layered some strings and percussion on top to give it some breadth. Piano, cello, triangle, percussion, bass, and other sounds come together in this unstable yet somehow comforting medley. This would pair nicely with some red wine!
