🎵 “When I Sing” (Original) - Live Music for Hive Open Mic 116

in Hive Open Mic5 months ago

Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.


This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: Trumpet Sound. For this occasion, I have a song that works well with a freestyle trumpet solo. I don't exactly have a trumpet, but I have a vocal trumpet that sounds kinda cool to me. It's a whirring sound, similar to the cicadas we hear a lot this time of year here in Austin, Texas.

I haven't played the song this way before, so it is exploratory, with a multi-layered loop recorded live. One part of the soundscape is a melody called The Sun Earth Blessing song, by Madi Sato, who is the founder of Song Carriers.

On a personal note, I'm feeling pretty good emotionally, but I'm not feeling my best physically. At least one of my kids has COVID right now, so I think my body is just wrestling with the exposure and trying to work it out. The kids are bummed to miss some special trips with friends. We're taking care of each other, and in the meantime I'm killing the croquet games.


When I Sing

When I sing
And I strum the silver strings
Connecting me
To everything

I remember
The ones who are with me




Hive Open Mic - Week 116 is underway right now, with the current theme: “Trumpet Sound". We introduce new themes every Sunday, inviting musicians to share a common current. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment. There is still time to jump in and enjoy this week's Hive Open Mic event!


Enjoy? Join in.


It is too bad that covid is still in our lives, here at home it has not been easy either because we have been visited again by this disease. I hope this passes quickly for both of us. This week's theme has been a bit difficult for many users, but I feel that everyone has managed to connect in some way. I like the background singing in your video, I like it when you say that your voice simulates the trumpet, because it really does. The trumpet is an imposing and strident sound, very hard not to be heard, and your message, at least here on Hive Open Mic has always come through loud and clear, no wonder outside the platform as well. Congratulations my friend, I always go away very happy when I visit your music...

Brother, this comment of yours is outstanding. You connect with me on the levels of mind and spirit, I feel. I'm grateful for your depth, being so generous with your time and energy, and gracious with your friendship. I see that you witness this expression in its relevance—with the trumpet sound, and you also connect in the story's relation with you life, and all our lives, as we deal with disease. You are a beautiful soul, and I am blessed to know you. Thank you.

Una canción original con mucha armonía, me gusta como ejecuta todos los instrumentos con mucha sencillez y ademas que la habilidad que tienes son frutos de tus 0racticas y del amor que sientes por la música, de verdad que gracias por compartir.

Thanks for your supportive words, friend. Wishing you joy.

Gracias por tus palabras de apoyo, amigo. Deseándote alegría.

I hope your son can be healthy very soon.

That tune from your lip buzzing was awesome and perfect too dear brother, I tell you that's a great way to position a trumpet for some great harmonic play😄🥰🥰

Y así es mi cabe, Dios nunca nos deja solos.

A veces podemos pensar que estamos solos pero no es asi, el esta de nuestro lado para ayudarnos a pasar las dificultades. animo🤗🥰

Muy bien amigo @cabelindsay , como te había mencionado en otra oportunidad, no sé de dónde sacas tanta creatividad e inspiración para componer tantas canciones, ojalá yo pudiera tener esa maravillosa capacidad de hacerlo cuando yo quiera jaja. Esta grabación es una de las más complejas que te he escuchado interpretar a lo largo del tiempo que llevo en la comunidad, y es por el simple hecho de que mientras estás cantando las estrofas, se escucha una voz de acompañamiento de fondo, y resulta que la haces antes de que sonara algún tipo de melodía, lo que lo convierte en un canto a acapella totalmente afinado, impresionante de verdad. Saludos amigo.

I sure appreciate your encouragement, friend, thank you. Nice of you to notice that detail of the background voicing. That part is inspired by an indigenous song called the Sun Earth Blessing.

Seguro que aprecio tu aliento, amigo, gracias. Es bueno que notes ese detalle de la voz de fondo. Esa parte está inspirada en una canción indígena llamada Bendicion Sol Tierra.

Pues suena fantástico amigo. Felicidades

Wow! @cabelindsay your original song always touches me in a special way.
The effort you put in other to create quality contents always inspires me. And you are preety good with the looper!
Oh and my heart goes out for your child may she be healed soon! Amen!

Thanks for connecting on a heart level, brother. You're so kind to compliment my music - it helps me to feel encouraged to keep on sharing, practicing, and developing the craft.

Muy bien amigo@cabelindsay, muy buena la instrumentación, trajiste una canción original con mucha armonía wooao felicitaciones... Felicitaciones y éxitos... Bendiciones para ti amigo..

Blessings to you too, thank you, friend. I'm grateful the harmonies resonate with you.

Bendiciones para ti también, gracias amiga. Estoy agradecido de que las armonías resuenen contigo.

I love your interpretation of the song❣ and your creativity is top notch👍💚💚

Thank you, friend, it feels great to hear from you.

Hello, Cabe.

It's always a pleasure to watch your presentation.
It's been a while since I last noticed one of your posts so am happy to see this one..

We've really missed you.

This was artistically stunning and
You consistently display excellence in performance.
Good work came..👍👍👍👍

I'm so sorry about your kids, but am rest assured that everything will be fine.

Much Love ❤️

Lots of love, Benita! I've missed you too. I had to limit my time on Hive for a little while, because I was focusing my efforts in some other areas. I published a book, for example. Feels good to have ample opportunities for creative expression, and naturally this path brings me back to Hive Open Mic.

Such great things you have being doing outside the Blockchain..

Greater heights sir

And have a Beautiful month,❤❤❤🌹

I loved this musical composition. Thank you for your entry in this week. 🖐
