ears and cellos

I wrote this a few days before my post on changing strings and before I had uploaded videos of this show at World Cafe Live at the Queen, but I didn’t want to post this until I had uploaded that other content. It is from somewhere around June 13th, 2011 ^_^

You know the bands were too loud last night when your ears are too tired to hear that you’re out of tune during the next day’s lunchtime set ):

Played an awesome Palk Basement Show two Thursdays ago. We (Battleshy Youths) played and also ran sound collaboratively. So. Much. Loudness. Kids drum so hard and we had to push the PA system to match vocals and half stack guitar amplifiers.

It was my first week of work in my new department which meant I was exhausted from adjusting to full time work again. Luckily my supervisor let me go for an extended lunch Friday to play at the World Cafe Live at the Queen Theater in Wilmington with Kelsey on cello. It was so much fun. Videos!

…And I think that is all that I had written >.< It’s nice to have a community of musicians that I can depend on and play shows with and to write music with. So much has changed in the past year.

[FAWM-Blog 2012] Day 27

I’m a slacker…


We celebrated Em’s (site, FAWM) birthday last night with a jam-session food-and-tea party. It was lots of fun, even though I only came for the last hour (finishing up song #8) I also got to meet Matt. He is very cool and beardy and talented. Stefan was doing yoga and being cool, Shane was smiling, and Erin was playing with the guestdog. Lots of fun.

This puts me in an awkwardly possible situation – finish 6 songs by tomorrow at midnight. It can be done. Back to work now – field training for substation entry ^_^

FAWM 2012 Song #8 “Searching To Be Found
A depressed love ballad sung from the perspective of Doctor Who.

FAWM 2012 Song #7 “Ma Belle Seule” (what I thought was French for “My Beautiful One” but really means something like “all the single ladies” but the piece sounds French so I kept it that way)
This is the first piano piece I’ve ever written. You can look at/read/burn the sheetmusic here.

FAWM 2012 Song #6 “Lessons of Heart
