Look what he did with my album! Long distance collaboration - this is what makes the interwebs wonderful.
In a Mellow Tone by Duke Ellington. Performed here by the incomparable Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.
Just a little gratuitous vocal beauty to celebrate World Voice Day 2013
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (Il buono, il cattivo, il brutto) by Ennio Morricone, performed on the ocarina. Yeah!
I am thinking that the ocarina is the missing link in my recording. I’d planned to record this on toy piano and melodica, but needed a third texture. Enter the ocarina! (“Enter the ocarina” - that sounds like the name of an imaginary Finnish folk metal band. Hm.)
Morning Passages from Philip Glass’s soundtrack to the film The Hours.
So poignant! And I so admire the characters in this masterful screenplay. I wonder if my producers would be happy for me to record yet more Glass? This fits well into my favourite-strong-female-characters-in-cinema idea. Hm.
I’m really getting into this whole toy piano thang… Here’s a whole festival dedicated to it! Thank you interwebs for connecting me with other toy piano weirdos. It’s so fab :D
