Rank #16: Dark Ambient # 19 - Sorrow, Loss and Remebrance
Thanks for downloading and reading. Sorry about the wait for this podcast, but the real world got in the way this time. Been working straight out at my day job, and my house is undergoing some renovation, and the Red Sox almost making it to the World Series, has taken a huge amount of normal recording time …..!!!
Originally this podcast was going to be a very dark sounding type of show, with a bunch of ‘found sounds’ that I’ve been capturing using my new zoom H2 recorder…as I started that piece of music, I kept going back to a folder on my hard drive, just labeled ‘Piano’.
I had been working on for almost a year a few short pieces, of just a little synth and mostly piano. The same time as I’m working on the music a few things happened. My cat of almost 19 years, Amy passed away. This was the latest in a series of passings of animals in my life. 3 or so years ago, my wifes dog Woody passed away at the age of 13, Her cat Familiar passed away very suddenly this year and her parents dog Shadow, also passed. This was bookended by the passing of my cousin Cheryl 5 years ago, of cancer and the passing about a month ago of Debbie, the wife of a good friend of mine also to cancer. The more I thought about all of the lives moving on, it didn’t seem right to be doing the podcasts with the found sounds, and I kept opening and working in the Piano folder. Once I had decided to change the direction of the podcast, things seemed to flow a little smoother.
There are 3 sections of this Piece of music. The first piece ‘Sorrow’ runs about ten minutes long. This was written first almost 6 months ago, maybe even longer..’Loss’ is the middle bridge piece, which comes in at about 30 minutes in length and was the last piece written. ‘Remembrance’ is a companion piece to ‘Sorrow’ and runs about 10 minutes or so ..All 3 songs blend together. I hope you enjoy them.
If you would like to support the podcast, please consider downloading the following full length soundscapes. At Amazon they are only .99 cents each and at eMusic each title is only one download. They are also available at Napster, Rhapsody and pretty much any other place out there that sells music..You can follow the links below for the following pieces of music.
Deep Energy 1
Moon Dreams 1
Moon Dreams 2
Moon Dreams 3
Moon Dreams 4
If you do pick up one of the downloads, please leave a review. Thanks to everyone that has left reviews at itunes!!!
One more thing….The 20th podcast is coming up in December…and it should be interesting …I ‘ve already started it and all I can say about it is…Clear some space on your hard drives !!!!
Take care …
