Track 1: Decadence HR: This tune explores a strong melody over multiple time signatures and key centers. As the title tune I hope it and the other tunes address in a positive way the decadence in western culture Julien and I se. .Track 2: Zephyr JS: This composition is built on the simple dotted quarter bass ostinato that opens the track. It is named after the god of the west wind, who is described as a stormy and rainy wind in some stories and as a warm breeze in others
