Cooking Time 8.14.11

Posted by Sound Semantics in 2011songoftheweek, music video.

Writing a new song every week for a whole year means you really need to tap into your idea reserves. For me, that means finding inspiration in the every day. I started this song with the footage of me cooking dinner, and from there wrote some lyrics, which took us two weeks to put to music. The rest of the video was just me playing around 🙂

I should mention that the carrots, beans, squash and lettuce provided by our great CSA Farm, Sauvie Island Organics. It’s really true, food tastes better fresh from the farm, and we’re thrilled to be getting a delicious delivery every week.

We are definitely trying to expand our horizons creatively this year and I do think this song pushes some edges. Musically, because it’s not a song I would think of as “ours” in terms of sound and feel. Visually, because sometimes it’s a little hard for me to put on a character and get silly. But whenever I do, it sure is fun!

We’ve already started work on next week’s song and I’m very excited to share it with you. Have a great week!
