Two Songs: Change and River, by Tucker MacDonald


To me, Randall is a reminder. a reminder of the joy of humanity. a reminder that life is a scary, ever-changing, beautiful journey through a jungle. Randall, an American man stuck in his body left part of his heart and his soul in Indonesia, on the river.

 Change: this piece is a meditation on change. Sometimes it's slow, sometimes its fast, sometimes it's bit by bit, sometimes it's all at once. Randall's story is no different.

The lyrics are partially inspired from Randall's favorite term LAYGO and partially just surfacing from time spent pondering Randall's story. The words speak for themselves. Randall hasn't lived (in any way) a conventional existence. He's burned any form placed on his life and trod his own path, learning as he goes.

and i will set fire to this house

and go my own way

 

and i will set fire to this house

and change my pace

River: this piece incorporates a guitar that has a sort of an Americana flare to a piece that ebbs and flows like a river with a simple piano playing the theme.
