Aquarius Steinway Clavinova 8-13-14

Hurricane Julio. Power of the ocean that battered me on the beach.  Staying power of Aquarius. Supermoon – full moon.  Solar Lion Stargate. And all of them converging on Monday, August 11.

I started playing this piece by the Fifth Dimension when it first came out in 1969. But I had not recorded it until Halloween 2011.  I did it playing the piano, flute and drums.

This is now my first orchestral/choral rendition of it.  And I played it in a 90F sweltering heat.

Age of Aquarius and Let the Sunshine In – a music video by ALTZAR – recorded in its entirety on a Clavinova at the Rainbow Shower, Maui on 8-11-2014 – original score by Fifth Dimension (1969) – video clips from “HAIR,” the film (1979)

Here are also some still shots from that recording session.  I shot the actual video footage video two days later (Aug 13), when the weather cooled down a bit, thus the shirt and the bandana. 🙂
