Here are rough recordings of the three-movement piece I have been working on for cello and piano. As I mentioned in a previous blog, this music will eventually be performed alongside projected drawings and prose to depict a sci-fi story. I apologize ahead of time for the sloppy cello playing.
Mvt. I: Upon Awakening from a 65 Year Sleep, or The Rebirth
Mvt. II: The Solitude and the Space
Mvt. III: The Descent, the Devastation, and the Decision
thanks to everyone who has been following, it was a fun project! i am planning on starting a new blog where i can post recordings or videos or artwork or whatever but it probably won't have a crazy schedule like this one. i will post a link to it when that happens. dan
i know i already missed the deadline for the final recording, but i'm still working on the video! i was going to finish yesterday, but i think i got some kind of minor heat exhaustion and felt all dizzy and weak when i tried to do anything. i will try to post hopefully by thursday at the latest. dan
i came up with this tune on the banjo. i convinced Troy and Schuyler to add some guitar. i convinced Kari to add some plucked cello. we wanted to film it outside for a cool setting. we brought all the recording gear outside. we started recording with the camera rolling. the camera decided to corrupt the video files. the video files decided to be unusable. i almost posted the song without a video. me and Troy shot some random footage at work today. we put that with the song. we inadvertently created an advertisement for Sojourner's Coffee. dan
another late post haha. I had this one done last night, just didn't have a chance to upload until now. it's kind of a cheesy techno song me and my brother Jacob used to jam out. i threw in some 80's video effects for good measure. i had some serious creative block for this post. i think the robot video was just a tough act to follow.
