Month Upon a Time


I wrote a new song cycle consisting of 12 songs,
each dealing in some way with one month of the year,
starting June 2011 through May 2012,
inspired by ideas from my Twitter followers.*

In advance of the first of the month,
I fielded ideas via Twitter* for that month’s song,
then I chose one idea and wrote, recorded, podcast,
and published the song in that month.


Why did I do this?
I was curious to hear people’s stories and ideas.
I was excited to write some new songs.
I was ready to podcast regularly again.
(And I’d been meaning to figure out how to use that Twitter thing for a while.)
