How appropriate that my probable soundcloud/kat330 "swan song" was inspired by a bird a couple of weeks ago—a talented wood thrush to be specific! From his 6-note song, I heard a waltz melody in my head and began writing lyrics to fit. It was an unexpected yet joyous journey getting into the guise of a male songbird courting his mate for this narrative.
My Guild acoustic provided the simple chords and rhythm, and to that I added keyboard sounds of harpsichord, cello, pan flute and orchestra harp. The thrush song you hear interspersed is from a field recording at a Brown County, Indiana, forest on July 1, 2015.
This song might seem like a Schubert Lieder or something Maria would teach the Von Trapp children and will be too twee for many to appreciate -- as my Major Melon Farmer and Swamp Guinea lyrics are 180-degrees too snarky for many -- but all my pieces reflect genuine sentiments and aspects of my persona, the good, the bad and the ugly.
While I'll continue creating new sets at kat330 and still remastering some of my older tracks to upload for downloading anew at my kat330repost site, my main SC account is now filled to the gills. Unless and until I remove pieces for more time, any new composition will be found here or at my repost pages [soundcloud.com/kat330repost/tracks
