Story behind the song

I simply wanted to compose a slow moving and flowing melodically driven piece that brings out deep emotions of love and that you can dance to, swaying and bathing in those heart-felt emotions representing love. It originated during a slow dance with my lady. Originally written for solo guitar the composition developed into its final form by arranging the music to include the guitar, first and second violins and the cello It is in essence a string quartet although the viola is not used as is typically done in a formal string quartet. I hope you enjoy this arrangement of Seascape and maybe it will put you in the mindset of being on a beach somewhere enjoying the sunset with your loved one(s).
