Offers Joy, Hope,
If you find yourself in need of a little song, Commercial Music graduate student Femke Weidema offers one-of-a-kind compositions, just for you, or for anyone else who writes to her with a suggestion for her One-Song-a-Week project, now in its 12th week. Available on the FemkeSongs YouTube channel, the song-a-week project features Weidema's original compositions and occasional accompaniment from fellow CSULA students in her One-Song-a-Week Choir.
Weidema created the One-Song-a-Week project after noticing that her creative drive seemed to become bogged down by her more academic perspectives on her work -- the type of perspective necessary to any rigorous graduate program. "I had to do something to keep my creative juices freely flowing, without judgment," she says, "otherwise I could get stuck."
After initiating the project in September 2009, Weidema has committed herself to composing, literally, one song a week, for one year, and, as she says in her introduction to the project, "Not just any song, your song."
FemkeSongs is 400 subscribers
strong, and Weidema has been very pleased with the response to her
project. All of the songs to date have been written for
complete strangers--people she knows only through their request
letters to her.
In "You've Got It All," recorded for Kali and Ann, who, Weidema announces, "are going through a pretty rough time right now," the music is made all the more compelling by the sight of a coffee maker on the kitchen counter in the background. With her minimalistic video productions, usually recorded in her own apartment, Weidema has created an atmosphere of warmth and sincerity for her viewers.
Weidema continually receives letters from listeners with their song requests and personal stories. Many of these stories, Weidema says, are about grief and loss. "I completely understand that those emotions lead people to seek music, and I am so happy to be able to create music to help them with their process, but," she implores her listeners, "I am equally open to stories about victory and humor!"
Femke is a Master of Music student in the Commercial Music program at California State University, Los Angeles. She received her bachelor's degree from Prins Claus Conservatory in Holland. She transferred to CSULA after beginning a Songwriting program at Berklee College of Music in Boston, because, she says, she was seeking more personal, one-on-one collaboration with her faculty members. She has found that at Cal State L.A.
