Rough Draft for Sound and Music Facilitator Project

Imagination. Creativity. Music. Word. Rhythm. Vibration. E to F call to Persian scale–.docx

Saraswati is the Goddess of leaming, knowledge, and wisdom. The Sanskrit word sara means "essence" and swa means "self." Thus Saraswati means "the essence of the self."

E to F call to Persian scale–Garage Band–still working on how to save this in a format that Word Press will take–well I got it in mp3 format on my harddrive, but it looks like WordPress will charge an arm and a leg yearly to allow that format. Video too, needs an “upgrade” from them

This minor second interval (E to F) that I just played is my new invocation to greet each day. I can sing this or play this on guitar or bass. I recorded the clip here by playing E to F on the vibes and recorded it on my new MAC under the WORD project area notebook which has an audio button. I am not sure that others can hear this clip, though, unless they also have a MAC and download it into their .docx place.

Where did all this come from? On Feb. 6, Silvia Nakkach brought us to a new level of awareness and skill via Indian Raga and devotional music to Saraswati. I internalized a deep understanding of the music theory pattern* in a gentle and loving way. As I surprised myself improvising using some of my handwritten notes about the form, I heard David Darling’s voice in my head: “Nothing is difficult.”
