Singing with my own sweet self

Posted by mikedaum on November 14th, 2008

Sometimes when I’m walking around I sing to myself.  Maybe I get some strange looks on the street, but in general it works for me.  Usually it’s a Niggun-like repeating pattern, that changes a bit over time.  And it occured to me that I have a computer and stuff  that would let me actually sing with myself if I let it, and the tune’s evolution would turn into harmony, maybe.

Well it took me more time than my Linux-addled pride cares to admit to get stuff set up for that, but I finally did it.  And in honour of it being Erev Shabbos I sang something very close to a pre-Barucha Niggun.  Well, the technique certainly needs refinement (not to mention the singing), but I figured I’d send out the results anyway, because I actually really like them! So without further ado…here’s my First Song with Me.
