about

When we dive deep and
reach the outer edges of ourselves
we find that reconciliation
that we seek so longingly for.

When we find it
then we can breathe at last.

This is the first of four meditations for didgeridoo, synthesizer and voice. This piece comes from a long contemplation of why I’m here on this particular plane at this particular juncture and trying to reconcile external expectations with staying connected to my authentic self.

This piece is played on a low F didge made by Seth McCaslin of McCaslin Didgecrafters from the Oregon Coast. It's made from a long piece of driftwood from the beach that turned out to be this beautiful piece of alder. It's somewhat of a rescue didge since it was made as an experiment that didn't go quite as planned. It's turned out to be a beautiful partner in music.

The didgeridoo is backed up by a soft pad voicing (played on a Kurzweil PC2X keyboard) and layered vocals. The hues of this piece are muted and liquid just like the flow of life itself.

I’ve long wanted to make a set of deep reflective pieces for didgeridoo, synthesizer and voice that dive into the essence of being – no fuss, no trappings. Just a clear vision of what I am – what we are. Hopefully, they can reach into those places of peace and stillness that resides in all of us.

Many thanks for listening and for your support. I literally cannot do this without you.

Love,
Pam
