Dan descending from Cime Bianche to Breuil-Cervinia in March 2015.

When Morten published the original videoclip on his YouTube channel, back at the beginning of the year, I thought I’d use the music-less fragment to try and write some John Williams’ inspired brass fanfare à-la Indiana Jones. In a few minutes I had the music penned in, but in all the following months I never actually managed to get the arrangement to sound right.

And then Daniel suddenly left us. At which point I decided to re-purpose the original happy theme and transform it into an elegy by changing the key and the orchestration. Here it is, finally completed.
