I have watched Dónal look very hard at the monitor of his laptop for the last few months. I have watched him smile, I have watched him focused and sometimes angry and I have even watched him curse a little too… I never knew what was actually going on on the other side of the screen and every time I asked what he was doing I was told that it was for him to know and for me to find out…
The other night, Dónal finally revealed what had him absorbed for so long. It turned out to be a lovely little animation he made for a tune he wrote and released on his latest CD called Slipstring. It is a lovely song written for sincere reasons and the animation compliments it beautifully.
I feel very privileged to have real live music written and performed beautifully by a real human being as a backdrop to my life. No sampling, just pure musicality.
Music and the rhythm of the crochet hook go hand in hand so well!
