Soundscape composition

John Oliver uses material from Stefan's second and third improvisations as the basis for a 36-note sampled instrument that places the đàn đáy in a very reverberant space. The wind and the low notes are mostly gone. The focus is on the melodic bending and the simple plucks. Like the original, there is a multi-layered approach, especially toward the end.
