    Default Brian Fergus "Welcome" (ukulele/synthesizer cover)

    For the "Birth" subtheme for Season 351 of the ukulele, here's "Welcome" - an instrumental from the 1976 album by the German trio Harmonia and featuring Brian Eno.
    This is a video of a practice run for a live performance I'll be doing at the Seattle Sound Chapel on December 1, 2018.
    The piece is created by layering recorded loops, building a multitrack texture in "real time", using a computer and looping pedal.
    First an arpeggiated ostinato bass line is triggered from a small controller keyboard. Next are several layers of acoustic ukulele, followed by two passes of ukulele-triggered atmospheric synthesizer.

    It was a good day. Train journey long jam session. The weather held. Fish and Chips in Whitby then train back. Jam a bit less vigorous this time as we were getting tired.

    Took some harmonicas as well and unfortunately a reed may have "blown out". It may just be a hair stuck in a reed - it's happened before, but I'm not hopeful.

    Ahoy people and glad to be back after a few weeks of having waaaay too much to do.
    I did the song Lightning Crashes by the band live. I was unsure of what to play so I googled songs +born +birth and found that song on one list - I have heard this song here and there for the past 20 years and I had never thought about the lyrics.
    Anyway, here is my submission for 'birth'

    This was the first song that came to mind for today, and I didn't notice until I was posting it that hendulele had already done it too. Let's see some more versions!

    I was 10 when this was released by Johnny Mathis - some might say it’s a bit cheesy - but I loved it then and I still do.

    This is an XTC song. I made the mistake on my first take of trying to sing the verse in the same octave as Andy Partridge, and blew my voice out. I managed to get one shortened take while singing the verse lower.

    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!
