The Willow Way

Using some of my original--and quite amateur--photographs of swans on the Avon River in Stratford, Ontario, I strung them together to create a narrative of sorts. The acoustic guitar piece, The Willow Way, my modest tune, was influenced by the recent death of one of the Stratford swans.

I had never used video software before but I was moved to combine the photographs and the music and I came up with this simple short multi-media piece. I recorded the music direct to the computer on my acoustic guitar--much in need of new frets--hence the rather thin sound quality. I am sure I can come up with a few more excuses to cover my production failings. Anyway, I hope it has some redeeming features. Enjoy.
