‘Farewell to Greatness' is my self-released debut EP. It features two tracks, the original title track Farewell to Greatness, and a cover of Pink Floyd’s ‘Cirrus Minor’.
'Farewell to Greatness' is inspired by memories of teenage years and student life. It's a song about seeking sexual identity, about the feeling of not fitting in. About finding your way in life, finding soulmates, people who accept you for what you are.
The second track 'Cirrus Minor' is a Pink Floyd cover, a darkly psychedelic folk track from the 'More' soundtrack. My version is quite true to the original, with personal touches via the use of piano, and an electronic remake of the cosmic organ finale.
