Sailing at Night
Good afternoon, friends! This post is somewhat in the way of a test in preparation for Friday’s new series, Homegrown Radio. If you’re seeing the post, it most likely means the test was successful.
& if you’re curious, the embedded mp3 is something I came up with a couple of years ago when Eberle & I were writing music for a dramatic production of Tove Jansson’s novel, Moominpappa at Sea. It’s a simple thing played on the baritone uke—two chords (as I recall, & for those who care about such things)—C, in several incarnations, & D minor (ditto). It was literally a case of having those chords & 3/4 time in my head & turning on the recorder. I think it worked out ok. Can’t recall if I’ve used this music as a slideshow backdrop—if so, my apologies to long-time readers!
Hope you’re having a nice day.
