You have stumbled across the first posting to Pal’s Music. My pal in this case is Milt Ritter, and the music contained in the three attached clips is taken from a documentary video Milt is currently producing – Green Blues.
This Is When It Makes Sense
Do It Yourself
In addition to being a man of unflagging optimism, good humor and formidable bar tending skills, Milt is a musician and an accomplished video producer with a background in local broadcast media. Green Blues is the account of his and his wife Chris’s quest to construct the greenest passive solar, net-zero house possible using local materials. That was the easy part. It got interesting when they factored in a modest budget, clung to high architectural standards, uncovered a host of unforseen technical realities, and confronted the strain on their relationship. Building such a home would be work enough for most, but Milt’s dream was to also document the entire shebang on the fly and single-handedly produce a finished video – including writing and playing the entire musical score – after its conclusion. With nothing more than a couple of decent microbrews, Some Gumbo bribed Milt into releasing clips of several of the original themes as entitled here.
