Cerise, Cerise - featuring Ariane Klauer

musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:05:26
I wrote this tune one night after watching my daughter in her crib while wondering if it was the right thing to do bringing a child into a world with so much ugliness. The song is written in a minor as a result but incorporates happy phrases as well to demonstrate there is also beauty in this world.

Dean, That was so beautiful! Yes, there is ugliness in this world, but there is so much beauty too. Your tune shows this, your playing is so emotional and your cinematography is wonderful! Thanks for posting this, it is truly inspirational.

I decided I wanted to do a video for this tune and Ariane graciously "recreated the creation" with video of her parts. 

It’s pretty amazing that technology allows two musicians who have never met to collaborate on a tune halfway around the world. Ariane Klauer lives in central Germany while I live on the northwest coast of the US.

This is a tune I wrote for oldest daughter and Ariane contributed glockenspiel, kalimba and tin whistle. We didn’t think to video it at the time so we “recreated the creation”.
