I’ve been busy this week. This is the second song we recorded on Friday. It was written by my partner-in-crime Dom De Dato, who played and sang everything you hear. I was the engineer. I also made the clip, based around three photos of marigolds.
The words come from Bilhana Kavi, a Kashmiri poet writing in the tenth century.
A new film clip from Dangar Island, Australia. The music is from my band Sprezzatura, I play guitar and Dom Di Dato sings and plays guitar. Our tiny community has an annual Mardi Gras where I get to play live. The parade is nothing short of fabulous… my neighbours are the real stars in this clip!
This is a song I recorded with my musical partner in crime Dom Di Dato. It’s by an Italian singer called Vinicio Caposella. I’m using the Youtube version because we’ve agreed to pass the royalties (if any) over to the original songwriter. We’re very happy to do that.
The images were all made on Dangar Island, Australia. The edit software is Philmora X, by Wondershare.

I haven’t been out much in the last year…. I’ve done hardly any photography. However, I have been making lots of music. This is animated by Mel Anderson, some of her Tiny Folk. If you’re very observant you can see them going about their business. Most of them are very shy.
Make a rhythm they said. OK, here’s one I made earlier. The sampled beat has many rhythm lines, the lurching bass and the reggaae-ish guitar give it another dimension. The out of tune horn section is supposed to be like a circus orchestra.

Another tune from me & my Imaginary Friends… ie, myself and a 16 track recorder.
I’m just reintroducing myself to the joys of blogging…. keeps me sane in the lockdown times.
Another prompt from Discover. “Song”. Hmmm…. should be easy… I invent tunes all day. Still… ‘song’ implies words… which means I’d have to unleash my singing voice. I’ve never been much of a lead singer, but I can manage backing vocals OK.
Here’s one I made earlier…. much earlier. First person to tell me the name of the film where Kirk Douglas takes his hands off the wheel of his little sportscar…. erm, gets a gold star.

Obligatory photo… the amazing Jacques Coeur, awaiting a visitor in Bourges, France. This place is now in my bucket and I’m very happy.
