365 DotU, Day 81 Makes Do Without A Vocoder

I love me some Alan Parsons Project. I wore out a tape of Tales of Mystery and Imagination a long time ago, and I adore so much of what’s weird and symphonic and dramatic and interesting in the music APP produced. It’s not, on the whole, really acoustic cover stuff. I thought about trying to do some violin-based versions of some of the music from Tales, but just couldn’t find the time to do it right. I’ve been listening to Ammonia Avenue nonstop this week for some reason, though, and I really wanted to cover a song of theirs, so I found the one I could handle: “Don’t Answer Me.” I wish I could’ve found the time to do more with it (percussion, bass, additional instruments), but all you get is me and the guitar. Oh, well.

It’s not as cool as a full version could’ve been, but I still really like the tune, anyway. I had to hum to cover the unfortunate absence of the saxophone solo. :( Oh, well!


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
