"Live Like a Monk" is a piece inspired by the book "Think Like a Monk" by Jay Shetty. The book explores the lessons that Shetty learned as a practicing monk. The goal of "Live Like a Monk" is to evoke the feeling of waking up from a deep meditation - relaxed, free of negativity, and refreshed. To achieve this, the piece begins with spacious textures and limited movement, gradually introducing colourful harmonies as it develops. As you listen, you might imagine a monk sitting atop a tall mountain surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. The instrumentation eventually fades away, leaving a sense of relaxation and refreshment in its wake - as if you have just completed a six-minute meditation. - Bayden Adams
