Description
The first song I ever sang on. It was originally posted on Daniel Staniforth's page.
He had me sing a poem of mine into a web cam mic. He built the music around that vocal as a surprise, overnight. I only did one take, with no rehearsal and no click track. To revisit my first post on MJ, over 2 years ago. The beauty is all Daniel.

Lyrics
Awe Full Truth

What can I say about this world
and all the hurting people in it?
At break-neck speed, we're often hurled
and can lose ourselves in a minute
Oh yeah, and can lose ourselves in a minute (rep at the end)
>
To pass on by the needy ones
requires our justification
Inhumanity often stuns
beyond all appreciation
>
I think we are all scared to death,
so we withhold our understanding
We are frightened, with ev'ry breath
that we're the ones needing mending
>
Don't you see and won't you believe..
everyone is somewhat broken,
has lost the capacity to receive
and from dark dreams, un-awoken
>
*Repeat of first 5 lines.

poem written in 2009 by Charlene Marie Kankiewicz

The Awe Full Truth
Great poem. Well sung. Love the backing track. The cello really suits the mood of the poem.

Impressive
that this was done in one take. Then to build the music around it is impressive as well. That seems like it would be really difficult to do. Then, to do that so quickly. That's great.

I did not know
what Daniel planned on doing. I just pulled the poem out, began to sing it, recording in audacity without any idea of where I was going with the melody. The next morning, there it was. All he had said was "sing that poem I saw on your site". I know. Daniel said he enjoyed doing it. I'm glad I put it back here so people can be impressed by Daniel's artistry. Thank you. :)

I Miss Daniel
I know he's embarking on some great things as of late, but still, I miss his music.

Char, you are talented in so many ways. I love the way you write, not to mention your unique singing style. This was very haunting & cleverly done.

I miss Daniel
too. He was quite witty and entertaining in chat; that was how I got roped into fooling around there. Before that, I just listened, commented and faved. What was great was that I was kind of known, after 10-11 months and several came to listen to my first song. Talk about a high! There still is nothing like the excitement that comes with posting a song. I used to check for back comments and then I was doing that. You are most gracious, Dani. I am happy you like what I try to do. I owe the nature of this to Daniel and so I think it is both a celebration of my anniversary and a dedication to a master.
Thank you. :)

You mean Daniel's to blame
for all the fun you've had here in the past couple of years? As well as the fun had by all your collaborators. Well, if he were still here, we'd have to run him out of town.
Just kidding, kiddo. You did a great job on your part, allowing Daniel to do his magic, overnight.

was very nice to me. It was about time to put it back and to thank him. MJ is my only fun. :)

Hypnotic & compelling. I like your vocals here, and the lyric is cool. Existential blues.
Impressive job building the tracks around the vocal with no click track

Daniel's cool, but so's Char
And you've come a LONG way yourself.

Hollow dark poem, well presented (considering your low-quality equipment at the time), and Daniel nicely enhanced the hollow dark quality with apropos musical backing... thanks for bringing this back out of the hamper of doom! :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Has a mystical hippy vibe to it also. I dig it.

Ah, well..
It has already been established that you like me. And, I appreciate you more than you'll ever know. I had no clue when I sang this, as it was only a poem. Daniel found it, asked me to sing it and then worked all that music around it. Cellists are devious. ;)

I couldn't have
chosen a better first attempt. Daniel is so talented and he was pretty witty, too. I do wish he hadn't pulled his page. I listened to all of his stuff. He has some collabs still here. Thank you, Ramona. :)

Hurting People
Your voice is always beautiful, but it really shines in that lower register. It has a really rich quality on this particular track. The moody, ominous music is ideal for the poetry. I was away from MJ for a while, and missed this--a shame! I was wondering if you'd posted anything recently, and I'm glad I checked! "What can I say about this world, and the hurting people in it"--that line is beautifully heartbreaking.

Thank you
for dropping in. That was the first song posted with me singing, in September of 2008. I had been a member for 11 months. I have no idea where the melody came from. I only tried once, and recorded with my web cam mic. Daniel added the music and it was a complete surprise to see it posted the next day. I appreciate your nice words about my writing and singing. Support like that encourages more than I can say. :)

Awe-some
I like the mood in this piece a lot. The story of how it came out is cool too. There is an "air" in this piece that is clinging to me.

Thanks for the dl :)

First thing I ever
had posted on MJ. Kind of depressing...just like me. Daniel made the magical cello background. This was the beginning of my not knowing what I was doing but still being accepted here by the kind folks. Thank you. :)

Joe,
It is very nice of you to listen to my stuff but please don't feel you have to.
I'm just a hack. This was a real baptism into performing for others. I am still not quite used to it. But, it is a rush. Many thanks. Much appreciated. :)

This is...
Very cool! Daniel did a great job here, coming up with a wonderfully evocative musical backing for your voice. Lovely poem, by the way. New verses begin rather suddenly, and always catch me slightly by surprise!

Char said 2422 days ago (February 3rd, 2011)
Daniel told me to sing
it. Without any preparation at all and nothing to listen to, I sang. I think that that may have been the first time I took a poem and made it into a song. Now, all poems are potential songs. I don't think Daniel cut up anything but just used my track, as it was. He said it was fun playing to it. I do love cello. Thank you so much. :)

That haunting voice. Strange composition, non structural. that cello is great for this song. Of course the words are a real winner here too and the way you sing them.

Hiya, Steve,
You can thank or fault Daniel for my actually singing on MJ. I had just been a listener for a solid 10 months. I know only a wee bit more than I knew then. Daniel liked the words, too. He said, "Sing it". And, so I did. Amazing cello. Thank you. :)
