I play instruments with strings, though not the guitar! (My main instrument is the harp, but you might also hear some piano, viola or cello, perhaps even a uke...)
This will be my third FAWM... (previously @mkd) both previous years I did concept albums (2018 was based around family life, 2019 was based around death and dying). This year I am wondering about trying to write the musical I’ve had in my head for the last few years... I’m nervous about doing that, but FAWM is just the sort of push I need to make me get on with it...
Drums coming soon... 😀
Hahahaha, I love that image 😁
Not *actual* church bells, but I've got a good keyboard for samples.
Also - Cadfael FTW!
Received and sent back! 😀
Don't mind if I do!
Hey, if you want to talk about other songs, feel free to e-mail me at zecoop at yahoo dot com. I might be able to record some more drums if I had an idea of what you were looking for. Or I could just wing it, but if you have a vision, maybe let me know. 😀
And I concur with my brother - I think it would work well on stage. I certainly can picture stage scenes as I listen to your songs. They are very theatrical and compelling.
You are doing an amazing job this FAWM.... wow, what a complex undertaking! So good, though. 😀
Awww I’m sorry that you are sick but you got a corker there!
I think that it would work, yes! The variety is a GOOD thing, as I find it compelling. That’s what you would want on a stage. I kept listening because there was more of the story to discover. In the journey of children there are so many eras and chapters, which is why your theme works so well. Each one follows the next, but are dissimilar in many ways. Crazy how you just realize that you are out of one and in another. I’m not sure how you will address the transitions, but I’m sure you will.
I didn’t even “get” your comment about your drummer until I listened! Haha
Thanks for your comment on "Kopf aus" - yeah the “Gedanken wanken” -part came with playing it out lout. Prior it was "gedanken schreien" (screaming thoughts) but that doesn't rhyme. And "wanken" means somehting like not stable.
Thanks! Yes, we both love the Cocteau Twins. I was originally thinking a sound reminiscent of the Sundays, but more dreamy is what we ended up with. I will be checking out your stuff. My brother says your stuff is great.
Thank you so much for your comment re: Thank Goodness For The Goodness...it really moved me and I am sorry for your loss...your Dad was obviously a lovely man...
I’m assuming you might be a fan of Lorena McKennitt? (I am)
Thank you for your very nice comment... Cocteau Twins are one of my favorites. 🎶❤️🎵
thank you for commenting on santo cello. i'm doing a whole series of experimental instrumentals based around my rudimentary cello skills.
you are doing great! keep doing you, and keep having fun!
Yayyyyy... I’m gonna catch up soon! So glad you are finding them helpful...
Ahh, thank you for the feedback and the tip! I'd never even heard that tag before, so it's much appreciated you brought it to my attention. 😁
Thanks for your kind words on ‘black sheep sister’ looking forward to hearing you!!! 🙌🏾
Oh, guess I should have paid attention to your profile, duh. There’s a harp!
Ah, thanks! If I ever get a group of humans to play it, I'll be sure to find the best I can. Haha. 😀
Thanks for the comment on Springtime. 😀
Maybe it wouldn't be too hard with enough people? It's like six or seven virtual players / instruments... They'd just need to be in time. 😉
When I said your song reminded me of my favorite Cake songs, I meant the band Cake. I think it's your singing style in Night Feeding that reminds me of them somehow. 😀
Hi Mary, so glad you're back too! Thanks for stopping by to listen to my first song. Can't wait to hear some of yours too! Love your profile pic this year 😀
Hey, you're welcome. That's one of the great things about FAWM - being able to focus long enough to realise these sorts of ambitions. (Don't tell anyone, but I've got a musical in my somewhere too - maybe next year!)
Um...what is supergrass?
Thank you so much for your feedback on Sycamore Stars. Keds are sneakers that I wore as a kid in the 80s 😀
Thanks so much for your lovely comment on “Jupiter is Rising in the Morning”! 😊
Hey! I just saw one of those lever harps in action out in the wild for the first time recently. If you haven't heard of Calvin Arsenia, check him out! He put on an amazing show, just him and the harp! Blew my mind when he would modulate keys by flicking some levers mid song, or even just turn his I chord into a I7. Super cool.
Man, now I have to remember a new username! 😉
Well I love a harp! Watchlisted 😀
Here's hoping you'll be back for 2020! 😀
