One Night – quite some time ago!

“Steve, so many memories about our youth. One especially stands out in my memory is a night, I don’t remember why or how, we were on a back country road and we just stopped on the side of the road. You had your guitar and just jumped out and started playing and singing. If I’m remembering correctly, it must have been around 2 or 3 in the morning, but you just jammed for about 10 minutes, then jumped back in the van and we continued on. *(Jerry McWilliams)

Thanks Jerry – glad you sent that!

Haiku’s and other writings…

The ART and SCIENCE of Writing

So much is always “lost in translation” from language to language…

And it’s really funny when somebody has NOT EVEN studied “Greek or Latin” which I did both – try to use a “software translator” as all you get it “gibberish”.

And even still funnier when someone will take the HIGH ART of the HAIKU and “butcher it” – so in my next post – I may just do that – just for fun!

The Japanese haiku and the English language haiku have several critical differences. In Japanese the haiku is composed of 17 sound units divided into three parts – one with 5 units, one with 7 units and another with 5 units. Since sound units are much shorter than English syllables, it has been found that following the Japanese example results in a much longer poem often filled up to make the count with unnecessary words.

The Japanese write their haiku in one line, in order to see clearly the parts of the haiku. In English each part is given a line. This allows the reader time to form an image in the mind before the eyes go back to the left margin for more words. The line breaks also act as a type of punctuation. The kigo, or season word, is a vital part of the Japanese haiku, but in English it is often ignored and not well understood. Therefore, a great number of English haiku do not have a season word and yet are considered to be haiku. The Japanese, because of their longer history of reading haiku, understand that there are two parts to the poem. In English these are called the phrase and fragment. One line is the fragment and the other two lines combine grammatically to become the phrase. Without this combining the two lines together the haiku will sound ‘choppy’ as the voice drops at the end of each line.

Actually Got some Music In!

Despite the massive move in the studio and all of the other things I had to get done in regards to my Studio and Outer Offices – I actually managed to get some playing in!

It’s always great to pick up a guitar (that’s got NEW STRINGS and is IN TUNE) and just plug-in to Pro Tools and lay down some tracks – not going to say I got much songwriting done – but I did get to the point that I could at least just plug-n-play!

Looking forward just two more solid weekends – of just working on the studio and Pro Tools Templates – especially for my BFD – and I do need to update my FX-Pansion amps – see what they can do – as it’s time to do a FULL on Virtual Drum, with real guitars and bass – and then break out the Sample Tank, Moog(s), and Melotrons and add some keyboard, string parts, etc….wish I had gotten the kit with the Wurlitzer’s and multiple Rhodes, as I really need to get RID of some of these “full on keyboards” that are just taking up SPACE!

OK – I’ll admit that a Virtual Synth or any Virtual instrument will ever touch a REAL ONE – but they surely are convenient!

Newsletter and Site Stucture is done!

Well – I don’t see that I’ll be posting a whole lot to this site – but I didn’t want to let the domain go to someone else – so I figured I’d build a basic site with some basic functionality…

So the site is up – and everything is linked together – our RSS FEED is working, our newsletter sign up is feeding to FEEDBURNER – and the rest of our band end functionality is working.

Look forward to posting in the future – but this is just an adjunct to my other main websites.

Steve Moore is best know for his guitar playing – I guess although he probably played more side gigs on Harmonica than anything else which wasn’t a bad thing as there wasn’t but a HARP BELT to carry about with all 12 Keys!

Singer/Songwriter Steve Moore.  This photo was taken in Mississippi quite some time ago when Steve used to play the SOLO CIRCUIT from the Austin to the East Coast – it was a lot easier back then – and traveling and playing SOLO was a lot more cost efficient and a lot easier to find fill in Gigs pretty much any night of the week.
