"Calling the Rain"
This music video, in the rain, is not what we had in mind when we set out to play Native American Flute during a mass release of butterflies. But sometimes, Great Spirit leads us to create what we create.
An Authentic First in a Historical Place
Military veteran and musician Alan Stanz, now stands where another people stood 10,470 years ago. Experts have authenticated Paleo-Indians were here. They held ceremony in these symbolic concentric circles of stones. There is intelligence here. We found it. (Link)
A Spontaneous New Song
Alan is spontaneously playing a new song. His first recording. Not from a song sheet, but from his heart.
Did Paleo-Indians play songs here too, within these circles? Was it eagle bone flute? Church bells? Trumpet taps? What did they pray for? How many heard it? Did they call for rain? Did they release butterflies? We have lots of questions.
Authentic and Real
This video is as authentic and real as the place Alan stands now; a place where others stood more than 10,000 years ago.
This is a "one-shot" music video recorded on this spot. One take. One camera. One microphone. Authentic. Real.
We give thanks in all things. For this opportunity. For this song. For this knowledge. For this place. For the rain.
"Authentic & real as the place Alan stands now; a place where others stood more than 10,000 years ago."
