The Songs - June 10, 2009

911 Bubble Folk /
Style: Voice over alternate flat and finger-picking
In this track, you only hear only one side of a conversation between a police official and subordinate regarding the 911 attack, as well as his commentary on its parallels to the current financial situation. The story unfolds while an intricate musical composition provides a driving backdrop to the story line.
This original piece grew out of my concern (as a former Emergency Medical Technician) for the first responders on the 911 scene. It was then combined with words that express my concern over the recent spending which effectively mortgages our children’s future.
These thoughts were then put into the voice of a “salt of the earth” figure who draws the conclusion that sometimes you have to “cut your losses” to prevent further harm.

Validation
Style: Folk Finger-picking
Learning of a medical condition called ‘Aspberger’s syndrome’ and then discovering that a long gone father’s “parenting” was affected by this, not only answered questions, but made me aware that many other people have yet to figure out “what really happened back then”.
