Moon Phases

Moon Phases by Craig Colorusso




It’s a pre-recorded minimal guitar piece that drones in cycles, as constant and as hauntingly as the moon itself. The piece mimics the phases of the moon by begining in silence with the New Moon and slowly getting more dense adding notes until it’s at its fullest with the Full Moon.

The piece will begin in silence with the New Moon and slowly get more dense adding notes until it’s at its fullest with the Full Moon. It waxes and wanes differently so each are unique. The structure allows both the Sun and the Moon to cast shadows that slowly distort over time. Come sit and listen to the music unfold as the shadows drag across the ground.
