    Here's mine. Just wrote this, while on Madeline Island last week (one of the Apostle Islands, off the coast of Wisconsin in Lake Superior a/k/a Gitcheegoomee, as Gordon Lightfoot fans know). Inspired by a family card game and also by the two people I most love singing with. Not entirely sure where the Constantinople part came from.

Yammie strummed with strings muted, 5. organ (Yamaha PSR 270 "rock organ" setting), 6. mando (Harmony A-style). Organ directly into Fostex VF80 8-track; all other tracks through AT2020 mikes into the Fostex.

      HC forumite and my friend, Anglelo Clematide, passed away on the Fourth of July, 2013. He was fifty-nine. We worked on a few projects together.

      He had been re-recording a waltz I composed in the mid-1990's. He sent me this mix on July 2nd, two days before he died.

      It must have been one of the very last projects he worked on. No acoustic guitar on this track. But there is an acoustic musette, a Bosendorfer grand and a glockenspiel. Angelo (Rudy Von Hagenwil) played all the parts.

      He was the best arranger/orchestrator I ever worked with, and one of the best musicians.

        ...ramburt, that was fabulous. Not only the arrangement, but the video, the story, the completed occupier of moments. Your friend left his whole spirit, his whole soul. Where he's at now, they aren't needed anymore....all of his art is manifested...

              "I Come And Stand At Every Door" Words by Nazim Hikmet Music traditional (The Great Silkie of Sule Skerry)

              A few day ago it was the 68th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. When it happened my father was a kid of 21 fighting in the jungles of Burma: on the odd occasion (which was not often) that he talked about it he said the bombing probably saved his life. I was born just under 4 years later.

              Nazim Hikmet was a Turkish poet and dissident who spent most of his adult life in prison or exile. His poem "The Little Girl" was translated into English by Jeanette Turner and set to the melody of The Great Sikie of Sule Skerry by Pete Seeger in 1962. I first heard it sung by The Byrds on their masterpiece album"Fifth Dimension".
