The introduction to 'Serengeti Serenade' features the Kudu [Antelope] horn. Described as sort of a French horn, The Kudu or Antelope horn is also heard at the end and is the hook of the production; Kalimba and various sundry percussion in addition to African choral samples build ever so gradually during the bridge or 'middle eight.' Though I have never visited the Serengeti, I believe this ambient soundscape encapsulates the African environment of the 'Dark Continent.'

Engineered and Mastered by Patrick Collins at Collinator Studios

On the Korg Triton, there is a patch described as 'Song of Africa' that served as the inspiration for this work. It is not unusual for pre-set patches to be quite enough to evoke a creative response and the Triton very much lived up to its reputation. This composition was another of those that wrote itself. Written early in 2002 on a recently purchased Triton LE, it remained without an instrumental chorus until late in 2004 when I began in earnest to arrange and produce what became quite a departure from my typical compositional style. Close your eyes and enjoy the Serengeti...
