A Piano Loop – Frosty Day!

I have been getting into music tech in a big way. We have bought cables and boxes and more cables and boxes! And a midi controller. And I have been studying Ableton, a great DAW for composition.

But today – a frosty day in January, none of the kit was working for my ears or my soul! The kit couldn’t capture the sound of my keyboard in my dining-room on a frosty day. It kept changing it and containing it and perfecting it. And I wasn’t going to have any of it!

So . . . I recorded myself playing the accompaniment on my good old keyboard and I then recorded myself playing the tune over the top on my good old camera! And now you can hear me playing my keyboard in my dining-room on a frosty day!

Silent Night – Where Cacophany Meets Harmony!

This is Silent Night as you have never heard it before. My looper pedal just kept surprising me as I built up the layers. I know there are a few wrong notes but it was very exciting. I felt as if my room was being filled with violin players! I could do another take but would never be able to capture the moment again. If you get through the first half you will get to hear the country twist. Hope it makes you smile!

How Great Thou Art – An Improvisation by Jennie Williams

A heart opening hymn. The best bit for me is playing with the violinist already on the backing track!

Transformation – An Electric Violin Improvisation

Hi, I think the backing track is slow country but it suggested to me something with a classical twist and so is this is what I played! I hope you enjoy it.

My improvisation is called Transformation

Sometimes we don’t need to change something. We just need to be open to the idea of transformation!

Cloudy Day Blues – Electric Violin Improvisation

So . . . another cloudy day in the UK! I found this backing track that made me feel the intensity of the cloud and I just wanted to play an intense deep feeling creation of my own to go with it. Hope you enjoy it!

Raw Acapella – ‘Dem Doctors Don’t Know Everything!’

Hi, sometimes it just good to sing something from your heart. As my son and I have colour sensitivity, our journey is a complicated one. I am not anti-doctors but lets just say that sometimes when you have a life to live, their opinions can get in the way!

Guitar Loop – Heart Opening May!

Hi, May is an amazing month for me. The light just feels a whole lot better than any other time of the year.  It is just bright enough for me to still be able to perceive some of the red and orange light from winter but not too bright so that the blue of mid summer dominates and drains the colours. And it makes me feel like opening my heart wide. I hope you enjoy my loop.
