2. Starfire Rising, text suggested and written by Elizabeth Barrette. Again, this is fairly folk-y, maybe a bit poppy? Three verses, the third with a slightly different tune for the first half. Piano accompaniment. I need to pay Elizabeth for use of the text but she has set an extremely reasonable price, so most of the below is for my own work.
Sheet music: £60
…and a robot clarionet and piano recording: £70
…and a recording of me singing to a robot piano: £120
…and a recording of me singing AND playing: £170
I really love this project. artsyhonker says it worked great for inspiration, so I am hopeful we'll see more of it. I've only seen a handful of musical crowdfunding projects in this interactive style, as contrasted with people just raising money on IndieGoGo or wherever to launch an album. It's something I wish to encourage.
Also I should probably write more lyric poetry. I love the stuff, but I don't often get prompts for it these days. I know a few filkers who occasionally ask if I have anything I'd like set to music. Sure ... but it's scattered through several thousand other pieces. 0_o Tracker newer poems would probably be a lot easier than finding older ones.
