My yearly treat

Approximately one year ago, Californian artist Susan Cornelis, who also, through Cafe Crem, has become a dear friend – proposed me to create a soundtrack for her “Soul Sketching” video.

It was a challenge, and great from fun, and from it came the musical piece “Eire” which was composed specifically for her video. a year on, and Susan has created Number 2 in the Soul Sketching series, and once again was kind enough to consider me to create the music. (Guess I did something right the first time!)  I stayed with the Gaelic theme, and used a recorder as a nod to Susan’s Norwegian ancestry. The entire melody popped into my head as I awoke from a dream at 5 a.m. – and much to Miki’s amusement, I dashed into the studio to get the idea down before I forgot it. Like many Celtic pieces, it is a simple tune, the appeal, I hope, being its gentleness. The intro and outro recorder melody is reinforced with an acoustic guitar following along note for note. I hope I have captured the mood Susan wanted.  This kind of interaction – of which I’m fortunate to enjoy with many of my friends in Cafe Crem – is so energising!

  1. My yearly treat as well. You should have seen the reaction of my Muse group to the video yesterday Kev. A couple of them had tears in their eyes – something about the combination of the sweetness of the music with my petting the chicken (?) or maybe it had to do with reminding them of the current economic gloom! Today there was an editorial in the New York Times titled “A Crack in the Nest Egg” or something like that, so I guess it’s timely.
    I’m much honored by your musical contribution to my life. And already thinking about our next one. . .
