    On Shaman’s Hand, Michael featured some of his classical work including rehearsal audio for a voice recital in 1990.

    He also debuted a piece he is finalizing for his new album based on Keats’ poem “La Belle Dame sans Merci“.

    And with his usual twist he brought in guests at a dinner and listening party to introduce songs for the episode.

    You can listen to the February 22, 2009 broadcast of “Shaman’s Hand BlogTalkRadio” below:

    Here I am in the studio recreating a   recording   session. Hey, it’s a bedroom studio without all the nice stuff that “real” recording studio has. I’m working on Little Angels Dust Your Wings.  It’s…tada….finished!

    Earlier in the day I was looking for some CDs to record on and I found a long lost song called At the Door.  Also on the hard drive is the full version of La Belle Dame sans Merci poetry written by John Keats.

    So it’s been a full day. I came home from work with 50 CD-Rs! Hooray!

    SO aside from a few machine malfunctions (my DAT headphone jack is useless) and I broke a tape in it this evening.

    While working on this post I’ve been listening to Parazona and onlinewithandrea on Blog Talk Radio. Tomorrow I’m Andrea’s guest.

    Hooray!

    All’s well that ends well.

    Welcome to Michael Emmanuel.com

    February 15, 2009 // Comments Off on Welcome to Michael Emmanuel.com

    My thanks to Buck Bannister for creating this new site for me and my music. I’m taking a break from recording as I write his entry. I’m working on a new song called “Little Angels Dust Your Wings.”  It is inspired by the poetry of Alex Chornyj, a Reiki Master from Canada whom I met on Shaman’s Hand Blog Talk Radio. Out of the blue he called in one night and shared his poetry with us. Then I asked him to be a guest which he did twice since that first call. One michaelrecordsof the shows he guested is the most listened to show so far!

    He shared his poem about his daughters one night and I promised to write some music to it. With a little revision to make it more rhythmic I hope I have something that he will like. So far Buck likes it and says it is his favorite after Morning Sun. (wow!)

    Recording songs is a fun process. I start with guitar, usually, then add bass, (not always),next lead vocals,  then strings and other instruments and in this case possibly harmony vocals…we’ll see. I’ve added a piano track which I don’t usually use, but it sounds pretty good if I do say so myself.

    Hoping this will fit on the new CD coming out soon called “SINGular mOMent.” I have plenty of stuff for it now but I want this to get “out there” so that Alex can use it if he wants.

    Join us on Shaman’s Hand. We’re on every Sunday night 8pm MST. I never know who I might meet up with on the air. So far,  some pretty nice people!

    Here’s a little clip of one of the musical messages that we receive from Captain and Maestro Stuart Pidman and the first ever inter-galactic orchestral explorers, “The Cosmic Eye” via my mystical glowing pine cone at Shaman’s Hand:
