… and perhaps goodbye blog.

I am taking my leave and seeing how it goes. It’s time to try it out. If I find I miss it too much I’ll be back.

BUT first I just have something to say to my students and anyone else who is willing to listen to me regarding music: a rest does not always mean take a breath. A rest is not always the end of a phrase. A rest can actually be part of the line.

Think about it.

And now over ‘n out.

For now, anyway.

If I really don’t return I leave you with VOCES8. Of course I leave you with VOCES8 even if I’m back later. I’m nice that way.

Session footage from VOCES8’s recording of ‘Momentary’ by Ólafur Arnalds, arranged by Geoff Lawson. The track features on Ólafur’s album release ‘re:member (choir versions)’ which can be found on all digital platforms.

I am listening to this so I figure I’ll share it with the few who still visit this site.
