I don't usually do tribute mashups but was wanting to do something for the podcast to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the death of John Lennon, something with 'In My Life' and this popped out. Very ambient, reflective, deep and very much me. And I don't really care if anyone likes it, it needed to be done for me.
Image is the death of Orpheus, killed by the Thracian Maenads for refusing their advances. Apparently "the river Helicon sank underground when the women that killed Orpheus tried to wash off their blood-stained hands in its waters...so as not to lend it's waters to cleanse manslaughter." - seemed oddly appropriate, but Mount Helicon is also the famous home to the Muses.
