Happy Music

Here’s one of the most enjoyable music videos I have made to date. I actually made this song back in Seoul, South Korea, 2007, on one particularly beautiful morning. I was teaching some gifted students ESL at a University in the afternoons and went in and gave a demo of the song to the students. There was one great student who loved it instantly and started dancing and “grooving” in such a way that is so pleasing and affirmative for a creator to witness. It gave me more confidence in this track and I developed in more. It has great opening riff, which I originally recorded on my Fender Stratocaster. It was a great recording but I tried to make a certain vocal harmony in it, which just didn’t really add to the song and was hard to do.

Anyways several years later I found extra time on my hands breaking from my career in mental health and the healing arts. So I tried working on my songs and got a lot of positive feedback from the “And We Sing” video, so I decided to re-focus on “Happy Music” again. I ended up just using a single melody line for the “Happy Music” parts and it seemed to solve the problem. I recorded the new version in sunny Merrit, BC at Channelle Suecroft Studios, an artist friend since the 90s. With a nice new recording I went ahead and filmed a video, which included some Greenscreen footage, which turned out very well. This video features an amazingly talented friend and actress, Laurie Fraser who has acted in production in Vernon and comes from a very creative, musical family.

This video is in process of being completed soon. To make things more exciting, I decided to ask my friends to lipsync the first chorus. We’ll see how it turns out. Stay tuned.
