The second of the seven valleys the birds have to cross.
Valley of Quest
This is the second of “The Conference of the Birds” songs i’ve been writing and recording on sunday songwriting marathons this year. I got two songs done last time Valley of Quest (this one) and Valley of Love. I’ll shoot for 3-4 songs this Sunday!
The Conference of the Birds
“In which all the birds of the world get together for a conference and are addressed by the hoopoe bird.” – Peter Sis.
This is the first song of my sunday songwriting marathons I’ve started doing this year. I got one whole song done after a day of setting up gear and remembering how Logic works again. I’m doing a series of songs – like a concept album – based on Peter Sis’s “The Conference of the Birds” interpretation of the 12th century Persian epic 4,500 line poem by Farid Ud-Din Attar. Peter’s is much shorter but with beautiful visual art. Mine is shorter still and musical.
This was from a song writing marathon I did 6 years ago.
Safe bet cigarettes
Originally wrote this one about a girl I was crushing on who worked at a vintage clothing store in Kensington Market, Toronto. Ahh, the sweet smell of stale tobacco breath…how it brings back olfactory memories.
I mixed this from a bunch of Logic samples. Pretty fun. Do you think the winds are too distorted?
