Improve my songwriting skills by creating and documenting original musical arrangements. At the end of the project I will have completed musical scores for various instruments for six songs.
I improved my songwriting skills through creating and documenting original musical arrangements. I brought folkloric songs learned from travels as well as original songwriting ideas and, working with musician Sarah Burk developed 6 musical scores for 5 musicians who each played various instruments. For example, Scott Fultz played saxophone, flute, banjo, and guitar. The song titles are as follows: Malisajo-West African song about the spiritual connection between a young girl and a Hippo, Chansha- Original song about the Mermaid Deity of Cedar Lake, Brasilian funk, Dance Like Mariana-Ode to an Argentinean Dance teacher, Tango, Elemental Intros-Song introducing the musicians as Elements and bringing on a musical Samba storm, Rum and Ting-Original Calypsonian influenced campfire song featuring Earthas challenges, Promesa de Pescador (Promise of the Fisherman)-Brazilian song honoring the ocean goddess, arranged to enact the story of Blue Ladys earthly love who comes to the sea.
