Deep inside the valleys of the Annapurna region of Nepal lie thick jungles, rushing rivers, ancient villages, and the world’s highest peaks. A 125-mile long path known as the Annapurna Circuit cuts through. As I climbed slowly along this path towards the small riverside village of Tal, I peered through a gorge facing the setting sun. I stopped here for a while to take in the majestic beauty of the Himalayan mountains; their highest peaks hidden from view by the surrounding cliffs and the humidity of the approaching monsoon season. I imagine that deep in this gorge, untouched by modern civilization, nothing has really changed.
One of the most dramatic places on Earth, the Khumbu Valley trek to Everest Base Camp was one of the highlights of my life. Stunning Himalayan peaks, pristine views, traditional Nepali food and culture, and Mt Everest itself towering high above. I compiled some photos and composed this track a few months after returning home.
I will periodically share something here as a way of greeting visitors with something new. It could be a piece of music, a game or film I scored, or something else related to music composition. I haven’t hosted a blog before so we’ll see how this goes. For more music, navigate over to the music tab, or check out my Soundcloud page for my latest music. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy! 🙂
