SKIRMISH prompt: winter river
Forum thread: http://fawm.org/forums/topic/8107/
I took the prompt very literally.
And was imagining skijoring with Hund in northern Minnesota. Also of mushing in the same area.
You've probably heard of mushing, but if you haven't heard of skijoring....check it out - it is so great!
There are some production hiccups here. Nothing that will break your eardrums, but some crackles, etc.
What you're hearing is me singing lyrics I had just improvised, but then wrote down so I'd say them not stumble them.
And I'm playing a Rhodes Stage Piano simultaneously. I recorded the Rhodes (which doesn't make much acoustic sound) as one input, and the vocals through a mic input.
I haven't sung while playing piano much, but would like to try it more. So far, in that arena, I've just transferred my guitar/voice songs onto piano/voice...but the way I usually play piano is total improvsiation....this was a fun mix and a good thing to try.
Thanks for listening!
I’m home again
I’m home again snow on this path
of the sled
of the skis
of the windmill inside me
as we careen
of wild wild rice
I never knew the thrill
of moving so quickly in silence
with a four-legged friend
through the snow
through the air
we are flying
we are crying
you brought me
to my home
you brought me to my soul
I’m here to listen to you sing
....and there may be some other lyrics that i didn't get written down....
