Each Day We Lose 5 minutes and 21 seconds of Daylight

At this latitude, (just shy of 60 degrees north) we will be losing 5 minutes and 21 seconds of daylight each day for the next few days. This number is slowly decreasing by about a second every three days until the winter solstice.

The piece is composed of several melodies that i've written over the last few days in combination with improvisation. Each melody has a corresponding improvisational section. 

Here is another tippee near by:

I hope you enjoy this! Anyone can be a part of PINECollective and I hope that some more people will want to get involved! Just send me some video or audio or some pictures or some words and I will post them!
