Travis Rinker – Music

I really enjoyed this laidback guitaring by Travis Rinker after coming home from a visit to my folks.

They’re Red Hot

Coming home to music, fingerpickin’ good!

Ragtime fingerpicking started playing in my Reader all by itself, and I followed it to SoundCloud and found Fingerstyle_guitar’s  stream. I’d invite you all to take a look.

There’s a bit of blues, such as St James Infirmary Blues, a Russian Folk Song, some blues harp, and even a kazoo, which got me some contented giggles.

Singing Lalala… Wildersoul bursts into song.

Trent Lewin is an amazing writer, and while browsing his blog I came across a little poem sitting in the corner, which sang to me. With permission, I attempted to add some musical notes to it, and this is the result. For the original words, copyright Trent Lewin, visit his blogpost I See You. He also has a post with a link to another lyrical poet which you might like to visit http://trentlewin.com/2013/11/29/the-wildersoul-rendition-of-i-see-you/ (That’s where I’m off to next.)

This first one is the serious version:

Next came a bit of letting the hair down…

This one pulled out all the stops.

My first attempt at creating my own tune, recording and publishing it.

If I am up to it, one day, I might attempt to add a musical instrument into the mix and see what happens. Or maybe someone else might like to!! For some reason I am sweating profusely, so I will give myself a bit of time to resolve whatever is going on with my bod first. I laughed at my diddly-doo-dahhhhs. And no, it is not my usual style of music. Although what my ‘usual’ style is, I really do not know!

Meeting people is fun

There is not much cooler than a piano on the street for anyone to play. It really gets people connected. Like, musically…

Is there a piano in your main street?

Artist Chat

Well, that was exciting; a guest spot on #ArtistChat with @SharonNicholas of @ArtistChat on Twitter.

All those pertinent short questions got me thinking. Where am I headed with my art?

If art starts at birth, with all-encompassing perception, and then builds into skills of movement , sound, and creating an effect on the world around us with our hands, or our voice, or a simple move of the eye, then where does school fit in, and the structured learning of what others have done before us?

How does the entirely new scene of art publishing fit in?

Everything can be published non-traditionally now, in some means, shape or form. Video captures dance, kinetic sculpture, and open mic poetry… Paintings, photographs, and music clips can be uploaded for the world to see on a blog, and the artist is accessible to chat with in real-time.

I didn’t discuss my colouring book art at all, and I have a large gap before I started posting art to my blog, where I mostly spent my energy on raising a family. Sculpture and moving pictures with sound, poems, and dance… Photography and paint, and digital art. There is so much I want to do, and combine.

The colouring book art is a start – it has put me into a regular daily routine, and has pulled me into a tonne of learning. Such as different graphics programs, social media, blogging, and small business start-up. And now sales skills… online marketing. publicity, advertising, campaigns, google rankings, and tax treaties. So much to learn.

For now, I will drift off to sleep to the sound of rain drumming on a tin roof. Night all!
