After creating my song and video titled ‘The Second 5th August‘ last year, I decided that I would like to keep this short tradition going. A tradition of recording a new tune on that day then recording a video to go with it.
So yesterday after work I sat down with my guitar and started playing some random chords and melodies. I recorded a few different short songs however I felt that they weren’t quite what I was after and the time was ticking, it was about 8pm by this time and still no song or video. Earlier in the day I felt a little self pressured into recording this which isn’t how I wanted this to be, and that pressure was released in the earlier versions. It was supposed to be spontaneous and I noted the difference in the previous two versions was that I was off work, my mind was clear and I had time to create. Still, no worries 😉
I took a cuppa break and tried to relax a bit and when I came back to the guitar I created the tune that is in the video. I had a few different ideas for some videos that I wanted to try out but they would be a little time consuming, doable in a day but not starting it at about 10:30pm.
The idea that I settled on was to record a candle burning away in a lovely piece of art that my sweet love Aga had created. Some string, plants and flowers wrapped around a glass jar to give off a simply beautiful glowing effect when the lights are turned off 🙂
All in all I am happy for the third installment however from now on I would like to dedicate a full day to creating more in the 5th August series 🙂
Oh the joy in simple things 🙂
What ‘simple’ things in life bring you joy?
