For Her Heartbreak – Music Video

And wait, there is more…

Back when I was chatting with Resa, I had a few ideas for music running around in my brain. I did do the recording of The Great Blue’s Blues, but the other blues based song I had thought of was still in my head. Last night I finally had a chance to go back and play with it. I don’t know if I’d call the results “the blues”, but I like it a lot. I hope you do too:

(Click here if you don’t see the video)

And for that 0.001% that might want to know, the piano was an ancient Viscount digital piano, the choir and organ my Sequential Prophet Rev 2, the drums an Arturia Drum Brute Impact, and the bass line and lead were from my Behringer Poly D.

For the lead line I was thinking Manfred Mann’s work with The Earth Band in the mid 1970s, but for some reason this song reminds me more of Alan Parsons in that same time period. I’m not saying that I think that it is on that level!

Hope you enjoyed :)

    LOVE! It is heartbreaking, Trent.

    You think an ancient Viscount digital piano is obscure? Well, it is, but how about my N owns a Square Piano!!!
    Okay… I don’t know how bloggers keep up? I’m always behind. I’m still answering comments and visiting from my last Art Gowns post.
    So, now I came back to GLAM to work on the blues post. Heading over to the other link!
    Will let you know when I post…. a day or 2!

      I’m glad you were finally able to hear it! I understand completely – I spend far too much time on the blog and still have a hard time keeping up, and I usually don’t have as many responses as some of your posts do.
      The Viscount is more of a white elephant than obscure – it is huge, heavy (it is wood, so looks like a spinet) and is pretty crappy by today’s standards, but there is no way I can replace it, so… A square piano is very cool! I think I’ve only seen them in museums.
      Glad you liked it!

        When we retire and downsize, it’s going to be a nightmare.
        I’ve been getting rid of stuff for years. Then new stuff comes to fill in the spaces.
        Yet, it’s nothing like the music stuff Norm has amassed.
        That square piano is the size of a small pool table. Pultecs, Neves, analog mixers (the last one he bought was second hand from the band RUSH, and it’s signed by the band.
        He has a bunch of guitars, a waterphone, sax, organ, drums, I could go on forever.
        Ever since he bemoaned the selling of his original wawa peddle, he will not get rid of anything. There’s a tech graveyard in the basement.
        SO, I understand about your Viscount.
        Sure, you might be able to replace it with a sample, but there ain’t nothing like the real thing.

          I often wonder how we’ll downsize as well, but my music equipment isn’t part of that. I’ll always have room for all of my musical equipment! lol. Sounds like Norm has a huge amount of gear. I never get rid of anything, but can’t even begin to compare to that, and no “real pro” audio gear, like the Neves. I am shopping for a new analog mixer, but I’m sure it won’t have a pedigree like that one!

              I looked at the site – impressive resume! Unfortunately the videos are marked “private so I couldn’t listen.
              A used higher end console might be better than a new mid end mixer, but I most likely am going new. I have my eye on two, I just need to make room and figure out financing. I like my old mixer, but I outgrew it years ago…

      It is cool how different music effects us in different ways, including physically. And, of course, I think it is very cool when I find out that someone experiences my music like this :)

      Thanks, Marina, I’m glad you liked it :) I think it is hard to not have some influence in the music we write and play, it just usually doesn’t stand out to me as much as it does here.
