Video: A Good Feeling

For today's video poem, I worked on something more minimal, visually. I'd been itching to mess around with music, so I created a score for this poem. Many times, I link the music I write for video poems to the visuals---here, I wanted to connect it to what was happening in the poem.

If you listen carefully, you can hear me flipping through a book (it's this book, actually!). Reading makes for good percussion, apparently.

I hope you enjoy it, and thank you, again, for all the thoughtful messages and comments this week.


  1. That was great. I enjoyed it very much. I would have quite liked a printed version to compare - but that's just me challenging again. Extremely well done.

  2. I also enjoyed this a lot, Hannah. Your music has a lightness that's fitting for the "Good Feeling", which is emphasized by the repetition of two notes in particular.
    Fun piece.

  3. Thank you for this soul-lifting, good feeling score, H. Bravo.

  4. As always, love the experimentation - this is another landmark. Bravo!

  5. Love your experimentation with this dimension. Your broadening my scope.

  6. The magicians string, your guitar strings, the thread of your voice. I love it!
