    "Hummingbird"

    Bird Lovers,

    This is my "Hummingbird", a musical depiction from early morning torpor to frantic, frenzied activity among the flower blossoms.

    This required much work and a lot of tweaking.

    Featured is the GPO Steinway piano.

    Regards,

    Larry

    My wife and I call them "Joy Birds." We have a lot of them here in S. Cal.

    Did you play that in real time, or do I remember that you use some other method?

    I can't play quiiiiiiite that fast so I moused in each note one at a time.

    Thanks for listening. My best to you and your better half.

    Larry,
    That little bird feels livelier in the morning than I do! (I would submit that Larry Alexander may actually be incapable of depicting "torpor".) A real charmer and cheerer-upper.

    I feel sorry for the poor mouse that had to write all those notes, though. I hope he was well paid!

    The mouse died...from overwork.

    Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Dan. They are appreciated.

    Larry,

    This reminded me of my kid's pet hamster working away on the spinning wheel. After listening I had to take a deep breath. I was really winded.

    It reminds me of my ex-wife's mouth.

    OH my this was fun--Thanks for posting this, Larry.

    The strong bass line in this gave quite an edge of determination to the little bird's fierce industriousness. Nice.

    Only today I've finally been able to log-in to Northern Sounds after a year's absence!--incredible problems with the system. This is the first reply I've posted and I'm glad it's in response to such a wonderful piece of music.

    Thank you!

    Larry:

    Yeah, the birds were humming along alright. I have a hummingbird feeder just outside my studio window and I watch 40-50 a day come and tank up on the sugar and water mixture that my wife makes for them.

    They are so cute and the males are especially handsome with the red on their heads.

    Enjoyed the pace of this piece and the periodic trills. The bass really drives this piece, but with the upper part soaring at breakneck speed, it doesn't sound too harsh.

    I'll open my window and see if the hummingbirds like this accompaniment to their feeding adventures........

    Take care and keep us posted on everything........

    Hummingbirds are fun to watch but the males can be meaner than a junkyard dog when they are defending "their" territory.

    Thanks for the nice comments, Mr. Jack.
