“This famous linguist once said that of all the phrases in the English language, of all the endless combinations of words in all of history, that Cellar Door is the most beautiful.”

I think the melody in this originally accompanied the string section I used in our track 'Ultima' (MPFS records 2007) only to end up orphaned after I took that track in a different, darker direction. I always envisioned it working better at a slower, chilled out tempo and this was the result. There are a few influences from Lange's classic 'Frozen Beach' in the latter stages too, one of my favourite tracks ever.

The name is obviously taken from one of the greatest and most inspiring films ever... I had to reference it somewhere.
