This is great flying music! I also want to listen to this next time at the airport instead. It might make that part of the experience more whimsical and less harrowing.

Fabulous post, music, and reduction, Peter!! Reminded me of a song by the Weepies, “Painting By Chagall”, though the song probably references “Bouquet with Flying Lovers”...

What a love story. All of it.

Thanks to this track, I better understand what ekphrastic means and what it can be. Before I listened to this, I couldn’t resist thinking about Brian Eno’s “Ambient 1: Music for Airports.” Which is still appropriate for your piece: capturing an ambience, not to mention that Mellotron and Wurlitzer sounds amid your jaunty reggae-rock would have made sense to Eno too.

“Fun” fact: “Teen Titans Go!” has a wicked deconstruction of that Invisible Jet in “Two Parter (Part Two)”!

Pure joy. With just a slight edge of fear. You captured it. I fly a lot. And it mostly involves going to see my beloved Natalie or flying somewhere with her -- so the the connection with Chagall and his beloved Bella is also palpable. And this feels a lot like how that flying makes me feel. The Strawberry Fields connection is lovely and there's a ratta-tat-tat at 1:30 that I really like, too.
