AUDIO: Mike Neumeyer – “Yellow Sunrise”
Percussionist Mike Neumeyer’s latest track is one of his longest compositions yet, clocking in at eight and a half minutes. Beginning with minimal phrases, the track gradually ascends into something grand. As more notes are hit by Neumeyer in rapid succession, it indeed feels like the sun creeping up over the horizon and piercing the low-lying clouds. Eventually it returns to its sparse origin as the marimba echoes with warm colors. It’s another tasteful storytelling arrangement from Mike Neumeyer.
