This is the fourth song in the free background music series. The instrumental features synthesizer, piano, acoustic bass, guitar, strings, flute, an Asian fiddle, drums and percussion. There are quite a few different sections with slightly different feels to them.
There are two different versions of the song. The short version (4:42) is the video shown above. The longer version (7:21) of the song has an extended intro with a clockwork-like feel and a longer coda at the end. Here is the long version:
Tempo: 120 bpm
Duration (short version): 4:42
Duration (long version): 7:21

About the Video
For the short version, I shot the video during two trips on the Star Ferry, the ferry that crosses Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. The video of the long version is of sunlight (in the very late afternoon) reflecting off of a river and onto a wall under a bridge. The colors were then inverted. Here is a photo I have taken of the Star Ferry.
This song was created for a student documentary about the elderly in Hong Kong:
