She Walks the Stars

She Walks the Stars is Ava, an intra-galactic bard 30,000 years in the future where light, gravity and quantum entanglement rule. Hear her story, listen to the music, dive into her incredible journey, and get ready for a late Spring 2021 CD release!

2/26/2021 Yesterday I sang A LOT! I recorded the vocals for Tears Don't Fall ... A LOT! Like 35 tracks with about 10 takes in each ... yup, that's A LOT! Today, I picked the best of each track (we nerds call it comping), and immediately took one of the more unusual tracks and put a deep alien sound on the voice. Now, as I am mixing, every time that part of the song rolls around, I feel like my friends from Didges Christ Superdrum have contributed in some small way, and it makes me giggle. I sure hope you are finding joy today ... A LOT of joy. Oh, and Ava highly recommends Didges Christ Superdrum. She says they get 1 million stars (not just 5). https://www.didgeschristsuperdrum.com/

Deep in the weeds working on "Tears Don't Fall" ... throwing all ideas in, and then deleting them one by one until something settles inside and says, "that's the thing right there." Such an oddity, working on this song of incredible isolation 30k years into our future during this current time of incredible isolation ... not a personal pronoun anywhere in the lyrics - just being, never a being being.

 

no starshine

no sorrow

never ending line

 

object

set in motion

lost track of time

 

oblivion is out there ... right here

cannot steer at all

living in space where

tears don't fall

 

light years

fly by

cannot count the days

 

don't believe

in anything

no sacred space

 

void is all

that lies ahead

just a taste

of salt

 

living in space where

tears don't fall

 

tears don't fall - never see the cryin

tears don't fall - even in the dyin

livin this illusion

feeling nothing at all

livin in space where

tears don't fall

 

nothin on the outside

nothin in the head

calculate the distance

livin and the dead

approaching the horizon

back here at the start

it all adds up to zero

without a beating heart

 

no starshine

no sorrow

never ending line

 

object

set in motion

lost track of time

 

oblivion is out there ... right here

cannot sleep at all

living in space where

tears don't fall

 

tears don't fall

 

tears don't fall

 

tears don't fall

2/23/2021  Wanna hear what's happening with The Fault in Me? My friend Randall Reichenbach nailed the mandolin on this track, and I am so grateful for his inspiration. He heard the song in progress, and said that he heard a mandolin because the song was epic like something from Lord of the Rings. Of course, I said, "Have at it," and the results are here. What he played so inspired me that I turned some of it into a shredding rock mandolin! Have a listen here https://mamagina.bandcamp.com/track/the-fault-in-me

And here is a link to Randall's sound cloud so that you can hear some of his own inspired tunes soundcloud.com/user-368371534

2/21/2021  Ava's greatest secret?  She is a symbiont.  Zoe has been with Ava so long, mimicing and all but replacing Ava's central nervous system, that they are almost entirely integrated.  It is an elegant entanglement that gives Ava a much greater perspective of EVERYTHING.  Tangled is their song.

Short and not so sweet tonight.  Focused on getting the mix for "Heavy" a bit closer to done. Listen here, and let me know what you think!    https://mamagina.bandcamp.com/track/heavy

Gravity, baby. Makes you feel like you're always fallin' down.

2/19/2021  You really do want to watch this. I sat down, all Zoom-like, with creatrix, author, artist, and musician Laura Perry this week to discuss the creative process. It's about 40 minutes, and I didn't edit a single word of our conversation. Brew up a cup of tea, and dive in. And then, do check out Laura's work through her website.  lauraperryauthor.com

2/18/2021  Listen to "I Believe in Light" right here https://mamagina.bandcamp.com/track/i-believe-in-light.

 

Still some work to do, but closing in on the final mix. Ava and Kam'ra are lovers, and if you have been following along, you know that beautiful Kam'ra glows in the dark for some pretty awful reasons. Both Ava and Kam'ra were cradle born and raised specifically for their vocations. True relationships and love were NEVER part of that equation. Most of Ava's music is darker, but in this moment, they are both finding their way toward joy and light.

 

Go ahead ... get up and dance. And tell me what brings you joy and how you can focus on that in these crazy times. Email me ... mnemosyne7@hotmail.com

2/15/2021  Willing to bet most of you are creative types. Who wants to video chat with me this week or next about their creative process? What motivates you? What holds you back? How do you know when you've made the "thing" that you set out to create?  Email me ... mnemosyne7@hotmail.com

2/14/2021  Unexpected post today.

I led a guided meditation this Saturday (it was recorded) and Ava nudged that I should share it with you here. Oh, this is definitely related to Ava/She Walks the Stars.  The work I have done personally through this Star meditation over the last 10 years absolutely allowed me to open up to the creative experiences I now live daily.  When you need 20 minutes of peace and growth, here is a Star Meditation for healing yourself, your community, your world. Know this: With one breath, you can change everything.

2/14/2021  Some of you know my process. Heck, some of you have been with me when it's happening. For those of you new to my music, here's what it looks like from my perspective. Images and words begin falling into my heart and head - stories emerge, and I actually LIVE them, as in, I see, smell, taste, touch, hear, and feel on an emotional level, everything that is happening. The personality that emerges and shares all this with me is as real as I am, and the evolution of the other personality and the resulting music can take years to coalesce and more years to potentially integrate. It is not a dream ... rather it occurs in a fully aware state, and the Gina part of me is fully aware, even if she does step aside to let the other flow through. Yup, some folks might find this rather disorienting or just plain wierd ... I find it fascinating. And not gonna lie - the music is far better than anything I might have written on my own. The two that have had a strong presence in the last few years are Nine Toes the Bard (a 15th century Welsh lass from another time line) and more recently Ava/She Walks the Stars. Best I can explain it - we are not the same soul or reincarnations. Rather, we are each fragments of a Bardic Oversoul, and each of us have access to the lived experiences of every fragment in that oversoul. And THAT'S the explanation for "I have voices in my head, and I have learned to live with them." The CD She Walks the Stars is coming late spring and I am laser focused on recording and mixing these days. Look for videos, interviews, music, random stuff, and thoughts each week right here. I am grateful that you are sharing this journey with me.

2/13/20201  Quick chat with my friend David.  We talk about how Ava's song "Poison Garden" affected him and how he connects to the music.  Do you have a favorite Ava/She Walks the Stars song?  What do you remember from hearing it the first time?  Tell me!

2/12/20201  The very first complete song that Ava and I wrote was "Leave the Light On." It's a glimpse into how she met Kam'ra, her lover who glows in the dark. I mean, she SHINES. Kam'ra is an escaped corporate sex slave (cradle-born and bred specifically for that purpose), and has tattoos under her skin and over her entire body that literally glow in the dark, though they are not visible in the light. In so many ways, She Walks the Stars is Kam'ra's story as much as it is Ava's. Here is the raw, acoustic version.  Tell me what you think! mnemosyne7@hotmail.com

2/11/2021  A short story from Ava - kinda creepy.

2/10/2021  Sending out a great big WELCOME to everyone who is checking in on She Walks the Stars. I am so glad that you are here, and am excited to share this musical journey with you.

Stay tuned ... I will be dropping links to a couple more videos in the days ahead. If you have questions for Ava/She Walks the Stars or for Gina as the gateway to this co-creative consciousness, ask away! I will post answers - heck, we might even video chat and share the convo with everyone here.  mnemosyne7@hotmail.com

2/8/2021  As far into our future as Ava is, we humans are still so very broken. I think you'll love this acoustic version of "The Fault in Me." Can't wait to share the song as it will appear on the CD ... but I have to wait a bit ... still mixing in an epic rock mandolin ... oh, yes, it shall be amazing. Stay tuned, and check out the acoustic version in this video now!

2/7/2021  My dear friend Theresa was there the day that Ava first came through - even though I didn't know exactly what was going on at the time. I sat down with Theresa to talk about that moment, how we grow through open hearts and a willingness to experience something different, and to chat about one of her favorite Ava songs - Hail the Sun. Cue the popcorn, listen in on our convo, then let me know your questions for Ava!

2/2/2021  "Hail the Sun" was one of the first songs that Ava gifted me. A love song from a comet to a dying star. This video was taken at Silver Springs in Ocala, Florida as I was busking. The song is now in the final mixing stages with a little cello and other tasty stuff for your ears (oh, this release is soooo close) and you can hear it as it is at the moment on my bandcamp page https://mamagina.bandcamp.com/track/hail-the-sun
