I finally brought the ukulele again for this Katauta video. There’s way too much hatred going on especially over these past few days, and it needs to stop. Denial only goes so far, people.
Oh, out of tune piano…we meet again to make music.
I did another percussion based piece despite some audio issues.
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…
I thought I would mix it up a bit with this katauta. I busted out my cajon for this one since most of my stuff didn’t have percussion or beats. Time to change that.
This is the big announcement. I’m going to do a year long project called Katauta 52. A katauta is a type of Japanese poetry style that uses 3 verses with a 5-7-7 syllabic form. Kind of like a haiku with two extra syllables.
Here are the rules of my project:
1: each song must have a katauta lyrics
2: there must be both spoken and sung lyrics
3: the song must be able to be played live should I have concerts
4: there is one song per week and it must be uploaded on Wednesday
5: no more than 5 notes in the instrumentation
Hope this works.
