The Wait

by Franco Esteve

The Wait is a classical piece of music that reflects waiting and anticipation. It was written out of insomnia and that incapacity, that anxious waiting for sleep to come, and just when you think it’s coming, it goes away again.

Album Notes
For me, composing music is a process of exploration, which is why I’m so drawn to it. There are so many places to visit and explore and express. A lot of my music is composed as an expression of my short films, as soundtracks, as a live entity within a story. Sometimes, the music is drawn from life itself.

The Wait is a classical style piece of music that reflects waiting and anticipation. It was written out of insomnia and the constant incapacity to sleep. It’s something I have personally struggled with throughout my life, and I admit a lot of my ideas flow from those hours fighting with it. The Wait is directly related to it, born of it. It’s that anxious waiting for sleep to come, the time ticking away, the realization that time is passing and the possible sleep time lessens. Suddenly, you feel it, but it disappears once again, and the anxiousness returns.

The different orchestral elements attempt to reflect that, with the violin’s pizzicato ticking away, as other elements creep in, and the mind races in the darkness. It features violins, cello, horns, and a rainstick to tell the story of that struggle with insomnia. For me it expresses that story. For you, it might express something different. It might inspire one of my films or stories, or one of yours.

I hope you enjoy The Wait and all my music, and may you always enjoy the deep and pleasurable slumber of a good night’s sleep.
