What a great sound we achieved from our last rehearsal. We started Rachel Hore's beautiful song "Sing You". Thanks to Rachel for giving us this song to learn and share. It got me thinking about songs and what makes a song resonate for a singer. Is it the words, rhythm or notes? Then I stumbled across the world's longest song project where a group of Aussie songwriters are attempting to write the world's longest song with the most number of contributors. Minister Peter Garrett penned the first line (and is responsible for some fantastic songs from his days with Midnight Oil). Other musicians who've contributed include Rob Forster, Lior, Bob Evans, Lisa Mitchell and Maya Jupiter. The world's longest song attempt will be be sung by Katie Noonan and muso Chit Chat Von Loopin Stab. You can add a line yourself. Visit the link. Perhaps the Sounds Live Choir could do our own songwriting attempt? Sing with you Thursday.
