How we got to where we are. The people and things we encountered along the way.
Here’s a random Skype video call where we discuss our plans for the production and the inclusion of Poetry, Cary Grant in a Kansas crop field, South by South West or is it North by North West, Margaret knows;
Here is our first contribution of poetry from Kal and Ruth Robinson, performed over a Skype video call by Hy Mayerson;
that sound beneath my heels
they seem to say “Clickity Clack”
as they spin their way down the railroad track
the message that they send
is one that never seems to end
it tells of rails that carry all
thru the seasons from winter to fall.
people too seem much at ease
as the sound of wheels continue to please
when it takes them to wherever they roam
and finally brings them back to home
the sound of the train is really neat
it creates a steady musical beat
as it pulses just beneath ones feet
to produce a comforting music like treat
travelling on a railroad car
be it in sleeper, coach or bar
makes ones trip to anywhere
like nothing else that can compare
next time you choose a destination
anywhere in this great nation
be sure the train is the way you go
because the rhythm of the rails creates a wonderful glow
Below is our latest collaborator, Almudena Verdugo from Madrid Spain, now living in Philadelphia. She loves Spicy Chicken Wings, her husband Kyle and Batman. She will be contributing video, photography and her technical expertise in all things internet. This is a poor enough quality recording of a Skype video/audio call. Do you hear a dog?
We Encountered Master Guitarist, Michael O’Brien, after this expedition began. We wondered what the band that he toured with sounded like. Cornered Music Master O’Brien countered with this little bit of charm… the artist that he is, turned to his iPhone and put a song of theirs into his laptop & hey presto Bango, this happened;
Below are recordings of 2 Skype video calls. Hy Mayerson and Michael Giorgio in America discussing the live web stream with Sean Corcoran (and Alfie and Matilda) in Ireland.
