That’s the question I ask at the end of this random performance. I have to leave to film Pushkin killing a spider, and Sophie takes over. The film of Pushkin killing the spider is already up a long time on here and can be found under “”cat eating spider””, and in the background of that film you can hear the sounds of Sophie that you can see her making on this film, and vice versa.
In theory I could try and put the two films together into one and see what comes out… But not today.

This is the title of the tune here, by my friend Krzysztof Orlowski, whom you may remember meeting in my film of Amber Hotel in Olesnice about a year back. I also have more footage of his fine playing to play out in the near future from my visit to the same place this year.
Krzysztof gave me a fine CD of his music, which you could get on http://www.gitana.pl – though not sure that page is still going. It is very well produced. I noticed that the song “”Anna’s Tale”” went very interestingly together with this footage taken recently landing in a blizzard at Warsaw airport, so I chose this clip to showcase this evocative and mysterious piece.
If you are wondering why a lot of the start of this video appears to be a blank screen, look again, and you will see the snow whipping by as a multitude of tiny horizontal lines. And then the snow-covered land appears below through the clouds…”
This piece would have done for a broad range of films actually. In retrospect, the dark landing barely does it any justice. I could have used it in a much better context. This guy did great music but became practically invisible, like Richard Halley.

It’s St David’s Day, March 1, again, and as every year Viktor Huliganov reaches out to the Welsh linguation with an acapulco song in Welsh, this time the famous Welsh hymn “Dyma Gariad Fel Y Moroedd” – Here is love, vast as the ocean. Bendygedig!

I was helped along in the lyrics by Wufwufwufwuf and MikeCut777, so thanks to those guys, on comments to an earlier video. Here’s the working release of the song in time for Valentines Day. Those who can perform it better, are welcome to go ahead. The mp3 of this is available on this blog. It is the same song as the one in the footer of this blog and is probably my favorite of my own compositions to date.
I am inviting collaboration or covers, and in order to ease the process, I’d like to say that there are only 5 chords necessary to play this song.
The ones I used were C, e, a, F, G7. The e a e a transition gets repeated a few times in the refrain and the chorus part also. Obviously you can doll it up all you like, but basically those 5 are all I used.”
