Something Remarkable

We were driving through the surprisingly stunning Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas one morning not too long ago. I noticed low cloud movement in the near distance of a heart stopping visual sort. Mists dancing along the sun warmed morning air streams. I pulled over to watch and was mesmerized. I asked Cathy to video and subsequently was inspired to create some music to accompany. Music and its creation have been a lifelong passion of mine and I purchased a very compact 8 track recorder made by Tascam to use on this trip just before we left. I am learning how to use it as we go along. Today’s electronics are mind boggling. I’m no recording studio technician, so I thought to try to replicate 50’s Be Bop as my humble little equipment surpasses the quality of what they had access to in recording studios of that era. Enjoy the youtube video and sound and turn up the volume! 

 We’ve been pretty consistent in this theme as we have been doing our travels, but it is something remarkable to get out and about in this wonderful country of ours. The stuff you see…


  1. Sounds like a great opening theme song to a movie about the hunt for Cochise. I can see it now, that song playing while Cochise's silhouette rides along the crest of a mountian, and far behind the silhouettes of american calvalry soldiers giving chase.

  2. I really like your description of the clouds as whispers. A poets heart. Nice song and yes, that old tyme rhythm and backup were fun. Im impressed that you could produce that no matter how old the technology. Fun Videography too.
