I keep promising that I’m going to make our music part of this blog. School’s out, the hubby is home, our home studio is built, and we’re finally at a point that I can start making posting our songs semi-regularly. Hurrah!
We may have a slight obsession with trying to make things ourselves, but homemade music has always been one of our passions and hobbies. We don’t presume by any means that our music is the best out there- we are constantly learning as musicians!
Most of the recordings I will be sharing are rough, live-takes, and either minimally or completely un-mastered and un-mixed. This one was done in a resonant hallway of a local university, though most of our recordings have been done at home.
So without further ado, we invite you to join us in the process as we share these little “Saturday Song” posts. I can’t promise you one every Saturday, but I hope this is the first of many.
This song, “Beneath the Sun,” was written and played completely by my husband. In his words:
“[This song is a] vignette of a bike-ride’s roadside scene: a lone silver maple brushed by the wind in a field that lay fallow, aged stone walls and fence-posts grown over with wildflowers and grasses, mixed with inspiration from Gilgamesh’s quest beyond the mountains.”
