Unlike the previous two videos from the series with soundtracks from songs of my album The Giant Trees, for Montagna II I wanted original music. The first approach was to record some simple background music that could accompany the scenery. Last January, while seating in front of the computer monitor and the piano, the melody you will hear came out spontaneously. Then, I realised there was more potential to it, and instead of releasing the new video right away, I decided to bring in more instruments. Broc Campbell kindly joined in the efforts playing acoustic and electric guitars.

Today, it is with great joy that I release Montagna II, hoping you will enjoy and be inspired while watching and listening to some of the Beauties of Life that I managed to capture.
