MIDI Week Singles: "Around the Fire" - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC/360/XBO/PS3/PS4)

"Around the Fire" from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, & Playstation 4 (2011)
Composer: Jeremy Soule
Label: DirectSong

So large swaths of the Pacific Northwest are currently on fire, with the Eagle Creek Fire having merged with the Indian Creek Fire and have burned a combined 30,929 acres.  For the last day, Conklederp and I have been inside our house with fans blowing and windows closed as there is literal ash fluttering in the air.  So it might be a bit too soon to use a song with "fire" in the title while referencing the fires in our surrounding area, but considering how anxious we are, not for our personal safety but for the Gorge itself, I felt a bit of calming music would be appropriate.

While deciding on this song, Conklederp told me that she will frequently use this particular piece when working with some of her clients.  She says that it is a very adaptable song that she is able to tailor to the specific population she is working with as well as what the goals are that she is working towards for that session.  I think that's pretty awesome.
