Every Day in May - 15 EDM Challenge #223

85219984@N00.jpg

This was a difficult challenge for me.  I could think of lots of sounds I really like (my grandchildrens' belly laughs!), but nothing I wanted to draw or could draw.  I could also think of lots of sounds I don't like.  After several days, I realized that one specific tape I made for my original old Sony Walkman got me through many long airplane trips and could still relax me instantly.

We took our children to see the musical Cats the first year it opened on Broadway and I loved Rum Tum Tugger's performance by Terrence Mann.  Several years later we saw Les Miserables where he originated the part of Javert on Broadway and sang the song "Stars".  Then he made another performance in Scarlet Pimperal and was the first Broadway Beast in Beauty and the Beast.  I love his voice and recorded his songs from these show albums for my Walkman. 

I stopped using my Walkman in the last few years, mainly due to the extreme limitation on size of carry on luggage (especially when we were traveling back and forth to London in 2006-07) and my need to carry my camera and charger, and art supplies, sketchbooks, etc in my carry-on bag.  I'm not someone who wants an iPOD in my ears all day long so I never spent time trying to recreate this music selection.  It may be time for me to learn about "itunes".
