Morning everyone! Just an update of what’s happening. I am presently putting together my first full length CD which I hope to record in January and then have available spring of 2019. There will also be a CD Release Party for this and I have plans for location and members underway.
Getting ready also for the Holiday season with Cookeilidh as well, with our next show being Saturday and the Victoria Santa Claus parade and Tree Lighting.
Back to the album though, I have been working to flesh out the ideas I’ve already teased out there. I have been doing this little Instagram per day thing for the last while, more of a challenge than anything, and it has been full but honestly, for times sake, I’ll probably slow those down now from daily to a little less (or more depending of what’s going on 😊)
Definite songs for the album in their new form will be She Lives There, Precipice and Secret Star with their rough takes on my Soundcloud
This is something I’ve just started playing with, along with my more localized Westsound Magazine project. It came from listening to some Coast Salish drumming on YouTube which lead me to this really interesting Coast Salish Suite produced by Bravo Fact. In the video you hear a mix of First Nations music with a full orchestra, resolving with the work of the conductor.
From being a fan of music and watching those giant crowds of people to my own experiences playing before crowds, I can tell you that there is definitely something going on under the surface of our songs.
From the simple power of an drum song to gatherings of music across the world something connects straight into us. Its like synchronicity. Or that could be me just being a Police fan.
Anyways, I already had a SoundCloud channel, so I started putting together a playlist of music from around the world.
It isn’t finished (in fact I don’t think it logically could ever truly be) but it’s got eleven already, mixing some traditional music with some more contemporary.
Have a listen!
