FAMI LAREMIFA

A collaboration with Blair

A collaboration between myself and musician Blair Coron.

 

Following the composition methods of Francois Sudre, we used the SolReSol system to literally translate words into music.

 

Sudre's system involved relating various combinations of the solfege scale to words, for example: MiSiSol = Happy FaDo = What DoLaReSi = Wine.

Blair applied this to an improvised poem by myself, based on a recent venture to Loch Lomond, to allow him to recreate it in its musical form.

 

The full composition is much longer than what we recorded otherwise it would have lasted around an hour.
