Description
I wanted to try and join in the fun for the (loop it or lose it) so I sent my song to Jack
of Davisamerica to listen to what I had done. Well he sent it back to me with some
"minor adjustments" and actually it had been overhauled and I loved it! The sounds
you hear are all true whale sounds, and we added a bit of strings and piano. Jack told
me how sad it is that such beautuful creatures such as the "Orca" whale families, are
becoming extinct. This is due to our pollution and hunting and the illegal fishing
that goes on. These whales are actual families. They mourn when one of their own die.
...kind of human, if you will. Anyway, we had lots of fun making it and here is what we ended up with. We hope you enjoy it.

join the fun
So glad that you did Gail - this is great!

The dance aspect also correlates with the social behavior of the whales and other animals, so a perfect fit for your mood.

gorgeous, sad, thoughtful
there are so many living families on this earth that we selfishly destroy... so good of you to bring it up in LIOLI, and such achingly beautiful music.

How can something so beautiful
be about something so sad. One day God, or some aliens, are gonna come down here and turn the planet over to those that really appreciate what they have. That won't bode well for the human race, but we had our chance now didn't we. "c'est la vie !"

About the music. it is hauntingly beautiful Gail. You and Jack can both be proud of what you've done, and bask in the glow of Whale Song.

Warm tones wash over me as I listen, but there's a hint of sadness, too. You (and Jack) really came up with something special. Just lovely.

Very nice.
Great sounds going on here and yes, it is sad to think what we do to whales, other animals, and other humans. Fortunately, we can (usually) escape those thoughts in a place like MJ and enjoy the music. :)

You are sooooo right. Macjams is the place to let go and forget sometimes about all the "stuff" that goes on out there. Thanks for the listen!

Very haunting
Gail your playing sets back in humility to the whale song yet there is a cooperative interplay and beauty in that which mirrors our roles as stewards of the earth. Very well done you guys and very thoughtful.

Very cool track, Gail
You've got a lot of those nature sounds sprinkled through this number and they are placed beautifully. Your piano lilt is just the right rhythmic element and I also enjoyed your subtle use of strings... This is a beautiful track and I am glad I heard it. Your music is always so sensitively written.
Peace.

As the dragon said: achingly beautiful,
and certainly the most serious (socially AND musically) of the LIOLI entries I've heard so far. We are so glad you took up the challenge Gail, and sending it to Jack was obviously a good thing to do. Thank you both.

In Our Human Arrogance
we attribute only to ourselves concepts such as love, loyalty, trust and family... or even singing for the joy of singing. Perhaps the day will come when we'll get the collective smirk wiped off our smug faces. Big-ass starship floats down out of the sky, the door opens and the President steps forward to greet them and the aliens say "who the hell are YOU? We're here to speak to the Raphus cucullatus!"

"Who?" sez the President? "He means the Dodo bird" whispers an aide.

Magical music, elegant and joyful and wistful and sad beyond measure. How you got something like this out of a goofy dance loop is beyond my imagining, but not surprising, after the amazing music I've heard so far.

Beautiful.
gail60 said 2890 days ago (August 26th, 2009)

I am the Dodo bird in this combination. :) Thanks for the comments and for listening. Really glad you liked this one.

I could tell you what they are talking about, but then I would have to kill you and I just can't do that! Only a few of us "really" know what they are trying to say. Maybe one day, I will share the secrets with you. :) Glad you liked the song!

Ed Hannifin said 2887 days ago (August 30th, 2009)
There are some spots in here...
...where the use of whalesong really captures something melodic and musical... the whale against the piano and synth is really musically effective and not just a sound effect.

This is very strong and moving...

Ed
gail60 said 2886 days ago (August 31st, 2009)

I am so glad you liked this. I never knew I had the ability to talk with whales...who woulda thunk it :) I really appreciate the kind words!! Thanks for the listen.

JayLCiazz said 2886 days ago (August 31st, 2009)
Thanks for reminding me!
The Deep sounds are such a treat.....The whole piece is so tranquilizing. one must feel humble to the majestic waters... Actually humble to nature in general.. something most have driven so far away from.. Thanks heaps for reminding me (us) with this beautiful melody of nature.. Good job, all involved ( that goes for the Orca's too).
