Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

William Butler Yeats reads for you

I came across a recording of W.B Yeats reading “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” and thought I’d put a little background ambiance to it. This is one of my early GarageBand efforts, made strictly with Apple sound loops. I hope it sounds good on your ‘phones!

    Reblogged this on WHAT THE HELL and commented:

    To end what seems like a real sui generis year (I hope), I’m dusting off this version of “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” by W. B. Yeats that I put together a few years ago. Seems to capture the mood.

    That’s Billy himself doing the incantation. And you can read along with him here: https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/lake-isle-innisfree

    Happy New Year everyone, and may 2017 bring us all a return to calm.

    That’s wicked cool, though one can’t hear the words so well it reminds me of what I like about my favorite singer Elizabeth Frasier, from Cocteau Twins, more the sounds coming through him than my ability to make out the words. Cool, warm synth you brought in there just before the oration starts– I like that. I think the sound of it makes me want to pee though.

      Ha. Yes, it’s on the wet side, isn’t it. It rains a lot in Innisfree, I bet …

        It adds to the ardor.
