OB6: 'Starsong #3' ("Orion's Belt")

Published on Sep 3, 2018 Kris Lennox

"The two uploads prior to the Liszt post from the other day I've added to Soundcloud under the title 'Starsongs'. Hence the title of this one as #3. I'm going for a really soft, gentle sound. Distant, like the stars in the night sky. The three LH notes/ascending arpeggio represent the three stars of Orion's Belt (Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka). Last night the belt was slanting upwards, hence ascending arpeggios. The first three melody notes represent Betelgeuse, Meissa, and Bellatrix, with the 5-note sequence representing 5 of the stars from the bow (there are 6, but last night I could only see 5).

I spend a lot of time under the stars i.e. overnighters up mountains/in valleys. If it is dry, I often don't bother with a tent i.e. just bivvy on the ground with a sleeping bag, looking up at the stars until I fall asleep. There's nothing better.

If you live in a city, it is definitely worth getting out into the wilderness - just for the sake of looking up. Awe-inspiring.

pS here's a link to the included piece on Soundcloud -

All best
