Videos? Maybe it’s time to give them a rest and get back to the audio, the music!

When you have to spend thousands to make a video, that means 99% of musicians can’t have careers. It’s a way to keep the music corporate, generic, and bland. TeXas Video Showdown, the worst video ever made, on purpose; protests all this and the fact that only 3 men control the music industry (CEO’s from Warners, Sony, Universal) When was the last time you heard a musician protest anything in the music business?

What if you are a great musician, but you don’t want to spend 100 thousand on a video?
What if you are a great musician but don’t like teen pop that always sounds the same?
What if you are a great musician but you don’t support the 3 CEO’s that control the music business?

Cello, new song demo and video

May 4, 2018

Dear Reader,

My new music video for my song “Cello, A Love Story”,
is now posted on my youtube channel. There is some art to fit too.

This is a rough demo, not a studio recording like my 9 cds.

To fit the words, I played my guitar like a cello – all low notes! See what you think.

Headphones are best. PS, recorded live, no auto tuning here!

CELLO
(c) Tom Hendricks 2018

1.

I was caught off guard, reading some books one day
When I heard next door, someone began to play.
Cello practice there. She played some scales to start.
Then after a pause, she played a piece by Bach.

Chorus

First she played it sweet like a Siren sings
Then she played it rough like a stormy sea
Passion in her bow as her cello rang.
Passion in my heart, not too far away.

(guitar lead, then repeat chorus )

2.
Music shows the soul. Its more than skill or rote.
When she strums the strings, feelings in every note.
(I) listen when I can, don’t want to miss her play.
(I) really have to find some way to meet some day.

Chorus (repeat).

Two Music Videos

April 14, 2018

Dear Reader,

Two new youtube videos.

Two rough music videos recorded live. These are previews of songs I hope to record in a studio later like my 9 albums, 150 songs.

GOODBYE TO WAR (youtube video) 1:14 long

Protest song. Though I’ve written 1,900 songs this is one of the few protest songs. But it just seemed due. Remember too that mainstream radio does not play any protest songs ever! That’s part of the music (and arts and media) revolution.

LULLABY (youtube video) :30 long.

This is a Mother Goose Rhyme with a melody I wrote and sang a cappella.

Top of Their Field and Favorites

April 8, 2018

Dear Reader,

Through my 25 years, and 200 issues of the arts and media zine Musea (1992-now), I’ve met many excellent musicians, painters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.

Here are some that are personal favorites, but I also think that they are at the top of their field and they deserve world recognition for their achievements.

Gregory K. H. Bryant – art

David McGhee – photography

Sara Niemietz and Snuffy Walden – music

Michael Helsem – writing

Scott Jacob Loehr – music

Ace Backwards – blogging.

Sparrow – poetry.

David Darling – science website, writing.

TYT, The Young Turks – online news.
