  • Filming Moon River in the loft! Take 30/96. I filmed to the song transposed up a semitone and a half, so as not to get tired of the chords in the original key.....which, weirdly, makes this verse in exactly E major 🌚

  • Due to popular request, here’s what the metatron Logic session for Moon River looks like. 5292 audio regions!! A week’s work in total. Nothing was notated on manuscript. I didn’t record to ‘click’, since I wanted the concept of time to be so flexible. There is also a lot of microtonal skullduggery at work... Thus, I needed to work entirely by ear, without a timing, tuning, or notation reference. Just me and a microphone! It took ages. I loved the challenge :-)

  • For the opening to ‘Moon River’, I asked 150 friends and Djesse collaborators from all over the world to text me a “moon” video on any note in Bb major. The result is a huge mixolydian deepquench OMNICHORD. I put the collage together on the night of the Notre-Dame fire - so I drenched all 150 voices in a 10-second reverb response from the Notre-Dame. The sound gives me goosebumps every time.

  • In honour of my first week as a harpejjist, I set myself the challenge of playing a full song on it for you. So here’s James Taylor’s ‘Carolina In My Mind’! I have become utterly obsessed with this instrument in the days I have spent messing around with it. Its 16 strings are tuned in whole-steps moving left to right. Navigating it is totally wacko. I love it so much. THANK YOU @harpejji !!!
