Depth of Fire - Frax HD Exploration #2
I forgot to post this earlier in the week, but had started this weeks song challenge with two instrumental cues in mind.  This was the first, my 2nd in a series of Frax HD animations.  Depth on Fire - Frax HD Exploration #2 with iOS Sounds

So...! Our son was in a hurry and was born six weeks early. Glen Parker Searle was born at 10:30 pm on April 20th weighing in at a whopping 5 lbs, 2 oz. He is doing beautifully! Of course, him being born early has thrown us into a fritzing panic of trying to get everything done on time. Thankfully, our social worker and lawyer are bending over backward to help us. We need to be able to write two checks this Thursday (yes, Thursday!!!) for $1,350 and $1,500 respectively. If you can help at all, even if it's only a prayer and a share - we appreciate it all so much. We're trusting God to get us through the final hurdle and thanking him profusely for our healthy little boy. Thank you so much for your support. ~ ♥

My song for the week, based on the them 'the Shape of Love'.  For themes that have something visual (like 'shapes'), I some times go to Google images, type in the word and see what comes up. Some times, there are stories in there. This week, it was just shapes.. lots and lots of shapes. lol. I started to think about how they all had different properties to them... liked the idea of squares having 'all the angles right'. And that the shape of a circle could be two lovers holding each other's hands and spinning. From those two thoughts, a little story (albeit a simple one) evolved. It felt happy and upbeat, and placed my mind in the green hills of Ireland. I promise I wasn't trying to sing the chorus with an accent. It's just what I was hearing in my head. https://soundcloud.com/timbehrens/the-shape-of-love

+Tim Behrens   Always my friend.. Keep on pushing.  You can give others encouragement by letting them know in your work shops and classes,  that folks are starting to see the skill and quality of your work get better with all the hard work your putting in.. That this is the key.. Nose down and hard work and you'll get there. 

Good Stuff!

Not only does this sound like a great fit for +Sean Cowen, who has been an incredible supporter of the music community here, I think it would also be a huge opportunity for +Sweetwater Sound.

The Sweetwater Project: Can You Help Me Out a Bit?

Many of you who have known me for a while, know that I'm a huge music lover. I always have been. There was a time when that love disappeared for a while. But when I started +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS over 2 1/2 years ago, that love rebounded in a huge way. Every single Friday night has shown me that love all over again, and our page and community is stronger than ever!

For four long months now, I've been on a long-term layoff. I've struggled to find just the right job in my area. Now, there is a tremendous opportunity at +Sweetwater Sound which is right in my backyard! 

The position is all about social media and marketing (my strengths) and I want to ask each of you to help me in a big way today.

1. First, I'd like to see if we can try trend #sweetwatersound ! I want to show the VP there the POWER of Google+!

2. Second, I'd like to ask if you'd consider attacking some of the posts on their page (feel free to add it also if you like) with comments (and mentioning I sent you there). I know you are all incredible, and you know I don't ask too much for myself that often.

3. Third, I'd like to ask my very best friends (who have known me here for some time) to consider sharing our story - how we met, the things we've done together, how my music page has affected you, the impact I've made on you etc - directly to the man at Sweetwater who can make a difference. He's Jeff McDonald, Vice President of Human Resources. His email is: jeff_mcdonald@sweetwater.com That's public, so I don't think it would be a problem if he received a few great letters on my behalf. (It would be terrific if a few Googlers weighed-in!)

4. Lastly, I would consider it a personal favor if anyone helped spread this post for me. The last time I was in a jam, so many of you were incredible, helping me to trend #GetSeanAJob that +byron rempel  started on my behalf. Well, this is now the longest layoff of my life, and my need is urgent: I need to work again, and I know I could make a huge impact for Sweetwater, here and across all their social media platforms. If you do decide to share this, thank you, and you know I have nothing but love for you all!

Here's my song for the week, ending week 1 of a new ten week challenge. It's funny how long that week hiatus felt to me. It was a really good reminder to me that the discipline of continuity is a really good thing. I did take a bit of a break, and then found it hard to get back into the swing of things. In any case, this song did come from the phrase 'this is the end'. I looked up words in the thesaurus that were about ending, found some expressions that resonated. It kind of led me to having a late night. My ears were shot, I was frustrated, a bit down on myself. Everything was quiet, except for that buzz in my ears, the one I got from playing music too loud when I was younger. Anyways, this was the result that came to me just before bed, and I polished it up the following evening. I'm actually going to take this one to workshop and am excited to see how it evolves. https://soundcloud.com/timbehrens/midnight-buzz

Should be a fun conversation tonight on +The Music Pulse.  I've met some amazing people through Google+, and had the privilege of working with a number of them.  We're going to talk about collaboration in the online world.
 
We have a very special show planned for you,

Join us next Thursday The 27th, as we talk to Tim Jones and friends, about there recent forays into artist collaboration.  Find out more about how Tim's recent set of collaborative works came about with some of the most respected  Indie Artist's on Google Plus.

+Paul Platt, +Tim Behrens +Rob Michael & +HEATHER FAY  have all added there immense talents to some of Tim's songs as of late.

  I thought what a great conversation it would be, if we couldn't get them all in a room, to talk about the subject.  Go over some of the nuances of what it took for them to work with each other,  how did this project affect them as individual artist?   Each one of these folks are very well known and respected here on the Google Plus platform.

 Each of them having major talents and large fan followings of there own.  But what happens when you take this individual talent and have to work with someone else?  This is just some of the things we will be touching on when we get them all in the room together with me this next Thursday night..

Good Stuff!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Music Pulse. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Story
Tagline
Multi-Instrumental Singer/Songwriter, Composer, iPad Musician, and Digital Enthusiast
Introduction

I am a multi-instrumental singer/songwriter who has been writing and performing for over twenty years.  My primary instruments are guitar and keyboard.  I also love using the iPad as a playing service and production tool.  I'm very interested in midi orchestration, sound design, songwriting, and creative process.  

I have played in a number of midwest based bands, most extensively as a guitarist for Dream West and Kansas City-based Half Price Buddha.  I have also been fortunate to be a session musician for a number of local folk artists.

For a number of years, I was a freelance graphic designer, and still very much enjoy creating web graphics for small businesses and websites.  I currently split my time between music and working as IT professional.  My technical background has helped my design and musical pursuits greatly, and I always enjoy consulting with others to help them achieve their creative ends.

The online community at Google+ has given me some great opportunities to perform and network.  My work has been used for organizations like +VirtualPhotoWalks, +theTravelingGuitarFoundation, and on a March of Dimes compilation album (yet to be released).  I have performed for the Artist In the Plus music festivals, the TGF Music Festival, Billy Wilson Show, the Circle with Terry Lynn Melody, the Song Lounge, and also enjoy sharing music through StreetJelly.  I always enjoy meeting new people and talking about how our creative goals can benefit one another.  Please don’t hesitate to say hello!

There are so many great folks to know here!
