In 1964 a song – WALK ON BY – was
published (B. Bacharach / Hal David)
and instantly became a hit for songstress – MS. DIONNE WARWICK
(Aunt of the late WHITNEY HOUSTON).
After re-reading the above two cited
[Stories from the Walking Library, 2014 and Looking backwards to walk forward, 2010]
Narratives I thought it would be fascinating to explore the intersection
of time / space / interpretation in the
context of this song, the genre /
interpretation of the singer / period
in which it is recorded.
Further as the basic time-line of the
song is 2:55 I think it equally important to engage this process in
a range of tempos and beats within
the 2:55 parameter.
The overall experience can be facilitated by any advance download
of the following WALK ON BY, 2014 —
or instead discover and mix-up the
lot by down-loading the variations
as one alternatively hums and / or
sings the song out-loud, syncing
one’s movement with the rhythm /
cadence / beat or doing a ‘Riff Lilly’,
I.e., going counter / contrary to the
pacing all the while WALK ON BY.
