Subject: Lament for July 2005 Bomb Victims
From: Tootler
Date: 15 Jul 10 - 03:10 PM

Last Wednesday was the 5th Anniversary of the July 7 Bombings in London when four young men blew themselves up. In the process they killed 52 other people and injured more than 700 others.

I started to write a lament just after the event but it took me another two years to get it in a form I was reasonably satisfied with. I have now put it on You Tube.

Here is the You Tube Link:

I did put it up to coincide with the fifth anniversary, but I was not satisfied with the video, so I pulled it and redid the video. The new video is based on images from the event which I have processed in the GIMP image editor to create a series of abstract images.

The tune itself is played on a Paddy Richter tuned Hohner Special 20 Harmonica in G with a drone accompaniment on a shruti box.
