This waltz begins very rubato, allowing the theme to meander as it will. When the first thought is complete, the piano is joined by soft brush stick drums, acoustic bass, an ambient backdrop and pizzicato strings. It sounds like a summer rain cascading upon a waltzing couple or maybe it’s snowing on Christmas eve – the Awkward Ninja is anticipating some form of precipitation.
Included: version with rubato piano intro (2:57) (as heard above) version without rubato intro (02:21)
