This is an original composition and performance I made with the ARP Odyssey from the mid-70s to accompany a video on YouTube.

As I was finishing up the video I heard the news that Buena Pearlman had sadly passed and so as a small gesture I'm donating any sales revenue from this song to the Alan R Pearlman Foundation.

Here's Buena's obituary:

Many thanks



Breath with me while we're hanging on the wire,
Lost at sea, we can be no other,
Be with me while we're hanging on the wire,
There'll come a time of ease and we'll be there
