Katauta #51

This is my penultimate katauta in my year-long project. This time around, I busted out a Tibetan singing bowl to accentuate this poem.

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.

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 #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…
