Day 22: 365 “Circle Songs”

Thought I’d shake things up a little tonight and use a poem by Sylvia Plath.  This one’s called “Mad Girl’s Love Song” and is deliciously dramatic…

“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead;
I lift my lids and all is born again.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

The stars go waltzing out in blue and red,
And arbitrary blackness gallops in:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I dreamed that you bewitched me into bed
And sung me moon-struck, kissed me quite insane.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

God topples from the sky, hell’s fires fade:
Exit seraphim and Satan’s men:
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.

I fancied you’d return the way you said,
But I grow old and I forget your name.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)

I should have loved a thunderbird instead;
At least when spring comes they roar back again.
I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead.
(I think I made you up inside my head.)”


Definitely listen to this one with headphones…

Day 20: 365 “Circle Songs”

Today’s circle song is definitely a product of some of the things that I’ve heard in the last few days.  On Thursday night I went to hear the wonderful Alison Wedding at the 55 Bar, and a friend of mine introduced me to Reggie Watts on Friday.  This piece is a strange combination of elements from each, and definitely a departure for me.  It gets my head bopping, though, which can’t be all bad…  Plus, enjoy my freshman effort at sort-of-beatboxing!  (Dare I say it?)

Day 17: 365 “Circle Songs”

I went to the vocal improvisation group tonight, the first time I’ve been able to go since the time which started this whole 365 shenanigans.  I needed it; it reminded me why I’m doing this.  It also reminded me how much I need other people, to stretch and inspire and share. So thanks guys.  And here’s a circle song.

It’s weird.  It makes me think of Vikings.  I’m tired, so tired!  Again.  Looking forward to the possibly impossible moment where I get to do one of these well-rested an inspired…

Day 12: 365 “Circle Songs”

I felt like adding words to this one, and the most random lyrics of a pre-existing song kept presenting themselves to my mind…  You’ll hear what I mean!

Day 11: 365 Circle Songs

Was just thinking about how much I like Early Music, and how the sound of parallel fifths is a big part of the “feel” of it.  The parallel fifths lend a haunting quality to it and often the addition of parallel fifths or fourths to a piece of music will remind one, consciously or subconsciously, of monks in a monastery somewhere, long ago.  Then, oddly, this circle song popped out, which not only features perfect fifths, but is based on a well-known phrase called “Dies Irae,” the wrath of God.  It is a Gregorian chant subject, and numerous classical pieces were written on it- one by Liszt, a movement of Mozart’s Requiem.  This circle doesn’t sound like any of those things, I don’t think.  Which is kind of interesting to me in and of itself…

Day 10: 365 “Circle Songs”

OK this is worse than I feared.  Ten days in and it’s already feeling like a prison sentence.  Maybe I’m just having a particularly uninspired day, but I’m just not feeling it.  I guess today’s circle can be distinguished by the fact that it was improvised without an ounce of premeditation; I pressed “record” without the faintest clue of what I was about to sing.  Then for some reason that is as yet unclear to me I decided the solo voice absolutely must sound “silly” in some way.  And… wa-la!
