I do enjoy being informed of the intentions behind the songs and all of the musicology lessons you provide. Bass flute? Will have to check into that...gorgeous breathing in there...enjoyed hearing the guitar interacting with the flute...the chording and note-plucking style...especially the very high notes near the end...but above all is your intention to wish the best to Cindy Fair in a traditional-sounding composition that evokes the passions of a romantic era that perhaps heard more of these sounds than we do. Thanks for bringing these compositions for our delight, Sean.
Such a description on the tech side I almost forget the reason for the tune. Oh yes, the tune. What a beauty! That gal must be so impressed that someone thought of her enough to write a beauty such as this. I hope she heard it or hears it. Sean, that bass flute is marvelous and you play it with such tenderness me thinks you're smitten.
Great Piece Sean , works well together the Guitar and Bass Flute , nice pick up at the 2:31 mark .... You sure know your Stuff ....
dunno much about the notes and chords (i know they are important and I I use them inadvertently) but the real star is the story behind the composition, both are lovely of course.
Born Sean Damon Rohde in 1968, I began my music studies at twelve. Like so many others, I learned my favorite rock songs by ear. But almost immediately I realized an intense desire to create. I was no longer interested in playing the music of others; from then on I have played only my own music.
In 1986, using my name Sean Damon, I began my serious music career. In fact, I have learned music mostly by my own efforts; I have had very little formal training. Since beginning my studies, I have also developed a voracious appetite for high culture in all forms: the fine arts, history, and science.
Above all, though, I hold Mother Nature most dear. In her embrace I find my classroom, my playground, and my church. From her, I have learned to appreciate the beautiful subtleties of existence. With her, I have experienced some of my greatest pleasures. By her, I find the spiritual reassurance to continue through hardship and maintain a productive life.
Amid ugliness of the human world, I find paradise in my thoughts. Whatever becomes of humanity, I shall continue to do my part to promote beauty.
Artists keep the sanity of humankind.
Although I am proficient on the guitar, I, unfortunately, do not play any other instrument. What you are hearing in my recordings is the sound of sampled instruments painstakingly sequenced to sound as close as possible to the level of fidelity that most of you manage through recordings of your own actual performances. I work in seclusion, hence, have not the blessing of external interpretation. By necessity, I must take full responsibly for the conception, production, and performance of my works so that my scores may be heard by others. I am exceedingly thankful for the existence of technology that enables me to bring to life scores that would have lain fallow on my shelf.
