While going for my daily morning walk on a cold Sunday evening in the winter of 2016, I was listening to the music I was writing for my graduation project at my Master ArtScience. The music I was listening to was calm, relaxing. Exactly at the moment I decided to deviate from the path to make a picture of a frozen branch, the music turned in a more tensive part. All of a sudden the music fitted my environment perfectly. It felt like I was in a movie; where previously the trees moved quietly on the wind they suddenly seemed to warn me of something. When being back home I saw I had been away for just 10 minutes, it felt like an entire day. The experience was so mind blowing that I couldn’t imagine how it would be if my music would suit the entire walking route.
The idea for Off-Track was born.
