This Dream that is Life 

I hope that all of you reading this are doing OK, whether you are self isolating, on the front line as a care worker, doctor or nurse, or just plain worried, trying to get through each day of this weird new life. We all have our ways of getting through hard times - music is a great way, as is humour and expression of love and empathy, both for yourself and others. One of my ways, of course, is making music, and when Mella sent me this amazing picture that was an out-take from when she sang Le Rêve de La Vie for the video, it inspired me to make a shortened remix with just her singing section, so I could us the is picture as the artwork.

The track will be released on streaming sites etc soon, but for now you can get a copy at Bandcamphttps://mldunn.bandcamp.com/track/le-r-ve-de-la-vie-single-version-feat-mella I have also made a new video for it, different to the longer version - that plays on the fact that Mella looks remarkably like a Pre-Raphelite Muse in the picture (think 'Ophelia' by Millais). I had no idea when Mella sang this a few months ago that in such a short time life really would become like a dream. Take care everyone, keep smiling. And keep washing those hands :-) Here is the video -

 

Sunday Meditation 

I took a short break from working on my 10th Digitiphony to make a little 5 minute musical meditation using my new Crystal Singing Bowl, my (old) Tibetan Singing Bowl and a set of samples of an extended Freenotes Wing. It will be released next week but here is a video I made for it using Magic (the app, not the phenomenon). Available on Apple, Spotify etc on 3rd March 2020
 

Digitiphony 10 Part 2 finished 

I have completed the second part of Digitiphony 10 (A Quantum Mass), which features vocalist Mella singing the song "Le Rêve de la Vie". I still don't know how many parts will make up Digitiphony 10 yet, it is not clear to me yet, although I have the words pretty much finished, which will determine how long it is, to a degree. it just depends how much purely instrumental material will sit amongst the text.

 

New video 

Taken from the second part of my forthcoming Tenth Digitiphony (a.k.a. 'A Quantum Mass'), and graced by the hauntingly beautiful voice of Mella, this video is a dream sequence that muses on the dream-like quality of life and the life-like quality of dreams. Sometimes it can be difficult to tell which is which.
