Katauta #52 (The final Katauta!)

One year later, and I finally beat my own self-constrained challenge. I can’t believe I did this thing for 52 weeks straight on this blog.

It feels invigorating to complete a challenge. I ended it with my soprano ukulele.

Katauta #49

I uncovered an instrument I haven’t played in years. This is none other than the melodica, ladies and gentlemen. Interesting fact about this instrument: it was also used in the song “Clint Eastwood” by the Gorillaz.

I decided to give myself more constraints by having an entirely alliterative poem with all the words starting with C.

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.

Katauta 52 Project #5

I can’t believe I did it. I busted out the ukulele on this one.

My mind is still boggled by this decision to make minimalist music under the Ospreyshire name with one of the happiest sounding instruments ever made.

Oh, the things I do for whoever bothers to watch or listen…
