Here’s one that just turned up outta nowhere..
The Fly and the Elephant
by Ben Johnson (2006?)
System voice: Boing.
Have you heard the story of the fly, and the Elephant?
>The fly bites the elephant.
The tiny fly, living on the enormous elephant, unnoticed until he bites, causing the elephant to twitch and flap his ears.
The lion across the water notices the old, thundering elephant’s twitching, and considers whether it is finally time to strike.
>The fly wishes to remain and feast on the elephant’s carcass.
>> The fly is God’s servant, and may do as she wishes.
> The fly remains God’s servant.
Beautiful harp and vocals by

A nice recording credit for the Dog House Studio!
Kenji Fukushima recorded his guitar tracks in the Riondel studio last January, and we sent them off to Hans in Mexico City for mixing.
So inspiring to be part of an international collaboration! Kenji’s guitar is heard on:
track 5; Inspiración
17:01 track 6; Música Musa

A “dreamscape” produced with field recordings from Tulum (Q. Roo) and Merida (Yucatan), Mexico. The Caribbean Sea breeze playing the strings of an Aeolian harp, a Guitarrón surreptitiously plucked, a Mayan ritual re-enactment.
