To anyone interested: I’m going to try to put together an instrumental track and release it on the Facebook page as a show of support for those impacted by Haiyan. I haven’t yet heard of any relief efforts large enough to justify the effort it would take us to put together an album, but if I do that may change.
As a matter of reference for comparison’s sake, Haiyan is the most powerful storms ever recorded. It exceeded the maximum value on the 8.0 on the force scale with sustained winds 190 mph (305 km/h) and gusts of 230 mph (370 km/h). Obviously, the maximum on the scale wasn’t dictated by physics but instead on the highest amount of force observable via airplane (or maybe it is satellite).
If anyone else would like to donate a track, let me know in this thread and, if you aren’t already, I’ll add you to the private Facebook group for collaborators to continue the discussion there.
