This is a demo of a tune I wrote a year ago when I landed in the UK to join my wife. I haven’t done a serious recording of yet but I really love this tune. It makes me feel hopeful every time I play it. I still don’t have a final name for it. I called it “Carnival” at first just because that’s the feel it kind of gives me, a positive little piece or so it feels like. Maybe I’ll call it “Lollipops and Goose Bumps”. I’m open to suggestions.
Anyway, I want to record an interesting version of it on April 30th, and video the recording, as a possible upload to the CBCs 1 Day project, which is of course a bite on the Day in a Life YouTube thing that happened last year but appears worthy none the less. I’m sort of revising this as I go, I’ll just see what comes together for Saturday, but here’s a few ideas I have right now:
- Pipe Organ: There’s an amazing pipe organ at the local Cathedral in Cambridge that would be awesome to get at, but I’d have no idea how to operate it and I’d have to send out some special access prayers I’m sure, we’ll see about that one.
- Analogue Synths: Another idea is to do the recording with a really interesting musician/ technologist I met in Cambridge named Richard Atkinson, @AtkinsonRichard, who does some experimentation with analogue synths and electronics, or as his Twitter profile says, “Master of organs, synthesizers and string ensembles.” I’m sending that request out today so I’ll keep you posted.
- Random Piano, Keys and Locals via Twitter: And another possibility, which maybe the most fun, is to just simply throw it out there, digitally anyway, via Twitter, and see who might have a piano, organ or some kind of keyboard that they’d allow me to come over and play for about 15 minutes. It would be cool to see what type of instruments I might come across, people I might meet, houses I might enter, and whatever else.
Here’s the track. Let me know what you think. Oh and I’ve just officially renamed it as a demo to “Lollipops and Goose Bumps”:
