Sloths and Monkeys Frolic in My New Ambient Music Video

Hey there! Give yourself a 3 minute break and enjoy a few moments of tranquility and exotic animal fun in my new video, featuring all the creatures who came out to visit us on a sunny day in the middle of a very rainy week last month. Sloths and monkeys abound!

Putting this little project together provided me with a bit of stress relief from my nearly daily internal reactivity to the Trump circus of horrors back in the States. I have a handful of new songs that have come out of all that craziness too, and I’ll be sharing them with you shortly. But since I was also in the midst of learning the new video editing app I was so excited to get my hands on, compiling some of our most recent backyard nature footage offered a much appreciated escape and a result that emerged, as I think you will see, with a fittingly dreamlike quality.

Eva and I shot the whole thing in the garden surrounding our home here - most of it on a single day of sunshine amidst a week of particularly long and heavy downpours. So with that predominantly clear blue sky overhead, most of our animal neighbors came out to enjoy the beautiful weather while Sam Hill, our dear old gato gordo (fat cat), napped in the sun through most of it. I developed the music premiered here from a little ambient track I came across in my vault of unreleased tunes and ideas as I was searching for a fitting  soundtrack for the video. Not a new hit tune, by any stretch of the imagination, but it works for me.

Hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please give it a thumbs up on YouTube to help bring more viewers to my channel.  More and better quality live stuff and new songs will be coming up soon. Have yourself a beautiful day!
