“The supreme goodness is like water
It benefits all things without contention
In dwelling, it stays grounded
In being, it flows to depths
In expression, it is honest
In confrontation, it stays gentle
In governance it does not control
In action, it aligns to timing
It is content with its nature,
And therefore cannot be faulted.“
Dao De Jing, Passage 8
I wrote this song inspired by this passage from the Dao De Jing. I started by playing the Native American flute. I then added each part with a focus on not thinking about it. No wrong notes. No wrong timing. Using convolution reverb I’ve put all the instruments in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid of Giza to achieve the long reverb. I also added a recording I took of birds when I was living in the mountains of Santa Fe.
