The Sands After Dark
with Dustin Zahn
The World's Best DJ's in a Picturesque Destination on The Beach!
The shadow is what we call the darkness of night. Illuminated by the moonlight, starlight, and airglow; the rotation of the celestial body creates the illusion and defines the setting. The primary energy source is lost and the behavior of the nocturnal beings become animated. The environment is unstable and powerful and this is when the magic ensues. A disturbance is caused and accompanied by a transfer of energy and a rhythmic component. Pulses of tempo are varied and the waves start to break. Higher energy erodes and the currents are held in suspension and progress via a synchronized segue. The role of the rhythm is harmonically practiced and the motif is created. Welcome to the sands after dark!
