(You get bonus points if you can work out what the original photograph was of.)

‘Invocation’ will be the very first track that I am releasing from: ‘The Sketches Project’.

It was written and performed almost exclusively with: Acoustic Cello, and Voice.ย  It is beautiful.ย  It is light-filled.ย  It is sensual, and it is Thoroughly Gorgeous.ย  The last movement sounds like: victory and joy dancing in sunlight. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I honestly cannot wait to hear what you think of it.

Why is it called: ‘Invocation’?ย  How did it come into being?ย  And what does it actually sound like?ย  Good questions, one and all.ย  These, and Many More Things shall be Revealed before the Day of Release.

In fact, in just a few days time on this very blog you will be able to preview a small clip of the actual finished piece.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  I will also be revealing: the story behind the track itself, why it was named ‘Invocation’ and, as if that wasn’t enough, there may also be some video of me in the studio…

Until then, what did you think of the title and the cover?ย  Love it?ย  Hate it?ย  Think it spells ‘Satan’ backwards? (It totally doesn’t).ย  Whatever your thoughts I’d love to hear them.ย  Let rip in the comments box below.

See you in a few days. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I’m a bit late to the party, but I just had to drop in and say that I absolutely LOVE the cover & title – they’re gorgeous! (Also, I do believe the image is of the bridge of a cello, no?)

    1. Thankyou so much ๐Ÿ˜‰
      You are totally right about the picture. Well done! If you look at the blog after this one, you can see some of the CRAZY AWESOME guesses people were making. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Don’t worry about lateness, there is still (apparently) 23 hours to go.

  3. Top left appears to be an image of a skeleton. In front of that image appears to be a human like male creature with wild hair. Top right an image of a big dog. Bottom left an image of a young lady. Not sure of yellow patch but I feel like its a burning down of something or a light shinning through these images. Love title, almost feels like its an introspective journey of pulling out experiences from your life and splashingit full force! And the two symbols between the title like a shield or
    Protector to allow for the release.

    So excited to be a part of this experience;).

    1. You win the prize for SURE for the most creative guesses so far. That is an amazingly in depth set of images.
      Unfortunately tho, none of them were used. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Guess again?
      I love that you are a part of this experience. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Be well,
