    Hey, neat name.

    Sounds perfect. This movement in the video and the piece remind me of one of my favorite movies as a kid, the animated version of My Many Colored Days (aka Notes Alive!) accompanied by the Minnesota Orchestra. I think it’s what subconsciously got me into music. Very lonely and delicate.

    Everything sounds better with the word “summit” appended.
