Mr.Richard Stoker’s story on this composition :
"This was composed for Mr.FluteFreedom for his new film on waves. The music is inspired by the feelings I get contemplating the beauty of the sea shores, sands, waves and tides throughout the world. It is inspired also by the beauty of the high-pitched woodwind instruments such as flutes, recorders and Indian flutes. An essential stimulus is Mr.FluteFreedom’s rich talent on the beautiful instrument."
History of the Song :
Based on the success of the “Monody of waterfalls, Whisper of waves“ video, as I was chatting with Mr.Richard, saying what if someone finds the melody interesting and writes lyrics to it, to make the melody famous, Mr.Richard immediately wrote the lyrics and sent them to me. He called it “Sing and Speak to me“. I waited nearly two years, hoping to find a female singer who could sing the melody, then finally I had to sing it myself, and also re-christened it “Without you with me”. You can now hear & see the results.
'What's the good of seas and sand
if you are never there to speak to me -- to me - and sing and speak to me and sing to and [walk/stroll/wander] tramp on the Sands ...
Won't you come with me, come to the sea?
What's the good of sea and song and sand, WITHOUT YOU WITH ME?
Thanks for watching
Love & Peace
