“As with most of my compositions, the concept of the tune comes before the title. I knew that I wanted to come out of the shoot, right away, with forward movement. As I sketched out the first four measures, the composition quickly started talking to me. So as the composition develops I start getting ideas of its title. This particular title didn’t solidify itself until later when I was sitting in my backyard at night, looking up and saw a couple shooting start racing across the sky. That was it, these stars are “In Motion”.

“Using bits of imitation and variation technic’s, not knowing exactly where it would take me, I simply followed my instincts and went for the ride. one thing leading to the next!

“I started sketching this out in the beginning of July, 2019, and pretty much finished August 4, a month later.” – William Gantt
