For a long plane ride crossing two oceans and spanning 3 continents, high above cities of every kind, nations at war with one another and people of countless backgrounds and ethnicities, and when your destination is Kathmandu, one needs a decent playlist. Mainly to help with the transition and provide a background sound as you write down shot ideas for the film you are making.
This soundtrack/playlist is made up of a very diverse pack of artists, with a tendency toward post-rock / thoughtful and reverent tunes and a few of my favorite worship songs. The last track is because my family will be missing me around the table this Christmas.
