Katauta #31

I’ve been negligent in incorporating instruments into my Katauta projects, so I decided to debut one of my panflutes for this minimalist spoken word piece.

It was fun trying to come up with a linear, yet noticeable melody in between each line of the katauta as a motif. Maybe I should use this instrument more often in recordings or possibly if I decide to do this Ospreyshire thing live at concerts.

Katauta 52 Project #16

I finally had enough time for using an instrument for once given my schedule.

It was fun doing a minimalistic piece with a chord I’ve never used before. I’ll see if I can use instruments more often if time allows.

Friendship Friday: George Hugo

This week’s edition of Friendship Friday involves George Hugo.

He’s a musician from South Africa. I was introduced to him through our mutual friend Dave from The Old-Timers, Their Throats Are Open Tombs, and the founder of ZAP Records. George is a really cool guy that makes some nice folk tunes. He also just told me about his photography on his Blogspot, so I’ll be promoting both links of his. George Hugo’s debut EP Rainwet Morning is available for free or pay-what-you-want on ZAP Records’ Bandcamp page.
