the Feadanaigh Epic "We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams, wandering by the lone sea-breakers, and sitting by the desolate streams." - Arthur O'Shaughnessy the Feadanaigh Epic is my long term project, which consists of three parts. + Wind on the Moors + Whistler's Bride Feadanaigh is old Eire and translates as Whistle Player ___ Wind on the Moors Close your eyes. Hear the wind on the moors. Feel the timid twilight giving just enough light to see by. The lights from the several roundhouses that form the celtic village. The feadanaigh has arrived, and the dancing will be good tonight. In this tune I search the mythical sound of Uillean and Irish low whistles. The orchestral/synthy background idea was stolen from Bob Whelan. This song consists of three kinds of parts, slow air (a bit like Irish lament), strathepy and reel. As the Air gives way to Strathepy and then Reel, more instruments join in. Strathspey is a form of Irish dance with a special rythm. It consists of two dotted eights and two sixteenths. The rythm is full of energy, yet somehow holding back until it reaches the climax, and the dance changes to Reel which runs in plain 4/4. ___ (The Riverdance influence is plainly visible. I almost feel ashamed when I compare it to 'Reel around the Sun'. anyway, no conscious copying here.) I am starting to have problems with the channel and sample size limitations of the GUS. I find myself using GUS MAX software mixing more than hardware mixing nowadays. - Vesa Norilo (a.k.a Warder) Fall 1998 mail me: warder_dlc.fi (I could squeeze time to join a group, if anybody is interested.) check my pages: http://www.dlc.fi/~warder
