Instrument: Tenor saxophone


On my short drive home after finishing my final lesson for the day, I felt compelled to stop and record at this cemetery. The lawn spans two full city blocks and is easily as wide. This is a massive, for-profit cemetery sandwiched between businesses and residential areas. Busses and cars can be heard nearby, as can a set of wind chimes high up in a tree beside me.

The image accompanying today’s post shows my perspective within the graveyard facing East towards the afternoon surface road commute.
