New setting of five early (and in the public domain) poems: https://michaelkarmon.files.wordpress.c ... k-copy.pdf

Wonderful poems to work with...

Just went through the first piece. I think I like it. Nice dense harmonies. Do you have plans to get it performed, recorded, distributed in any way?

Hi Max, all my guitar music is available for free download at my website (www.michaelkarmon.com.) There are no solid plans for a performance of the piece yet.

Hi Max, looks like guitarist Tim Olbrych and soprano Judy Olbrych will be performing the piece and possibly recording it. I'll post something here when/if the CD is out.

From my very cursory reading before bed these seems to have the same sort of piquancy as the Vaughan-Williams travel songs. My congratulations! I cannot wait to see how they feel under the fingers!

Thanks! Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Email is probably best; I actually don't visit here very often.

I haven't had much chance to work with writing for voice yet. I'd like to write some songs like these at some point. I think the medium of fretboard and voice is one of the most natural-sounding, there should be more of these out there.

Thanks for that. I being somewhat of a cello student also had a look at the Campfire Songs.
