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.

Day 5: 365 “Circle Songs”

Over the course of the past two years my taste in music has changed a bit.  I crave dissonance more than before, my cheese-o-meter is even more sensitive.  This circle song, however, is right in my pocket, in the core of my musical taste.  I’m learning, though, I need to “stay out of my own way” a bit when I sing the solo part.  I’ll be working more on that over the next bunch of these!

This one has some totally random words that popped out of my subconscious.  For those of you that like to know the words and may not be able to understand me, they are:

“There are a hundred lights shining in the bay.  There are a hundred hearts breaking for today.”
