Here is the unmastered final mix of my version of the Waterboy's song, Peace of Iona.
You can listen to this track here until 1pm CST Sept 21st! And then we have to wait until it is released. Singles for my album Hymns From the Icons will be released prior to November 8th, at which point the whole album will be available.
In this recording, for percussion, I mic'd my plywood studio floor for the "kick" drum, and in one hand I used antler bone from the farm we inhabit here on Anishinaabe lands. In the other hand, I used a stone from Columba Bay, Iona, that I bathed in Brigid's wellspring.
Put this on your best sound system for the FULL EFFECT. And feel free to dance!
EDIT: As promised, this track was taken down until it is released. Thanks to so many people for listening!!!
And very importantly, so this work can continue, here is a video I made this week. In it, I call all my listeners to draw near to the work, by joining me as a patron. This can be a very marginal commitment, that collectively, makes all the difference... (more than I can say). The current goal for Patreon is to reach 500 patrons. At this moment, there are 216 people who encircle this work, and stand between it being made... or never being made at all.
