Malukah Limited Edition Merch

    Limited Edition T-shirt/Hoodie

    In anticipation for the opening of my store at designbyhumans.com there’s currently a Limited Edition T-shirt/Hoodie available with a red dragon logo. If this is something you’d like to have, you can get it for the next two weeks only! After this time, red dragon logo will be retired and the rest of the store will open.

    There will be t-shirts, hoodies, tanks of other colors and designs, mugs, cellphone cases, and more. 🙂 Just finally starting to get into merch and it’s been fun to come up with ideas for things!

    Thanks for reading,

    New Song and Video: Vokul Fen Mah

    Yesterday was a great experience! Thank you to those of you that were able to be at the stream right when I presented the new video for Vokul Fen Mah, an original Skyrim fan-made bard song.

    I started writing this song years ago… 4?… 5?… Some of you had heard a clip I posted on Soundcloud, and from time to time referred to it as “Fire, Fire”. Hehe!

    I’m excited this song is now done and I can share the real name for it, Vokul Fen Mah, which translates into Evil Will Fall.

    The lyrics are about how even though circumstances are dire, good will always win in the end. It was fun to write half of this song in Dovah, and to be able to include one of the Dragon Shouts in the chorus. JOOR-ZAH-FRUL!!!! Lyrics below.

    You can get this song on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify.

    Thank you for watching and for your continued support!

    All my love from Mexico,
    Malu

     

    Vokul Fen Mah
    Music & Lyrics by Malukah

    Chords

    Fire, fire dragon fire
    Searing words of ancient ire
    Wake, wake from the grave
    Rise to set the world aflame
    Hmm-hmm-hmm (hehe)

    Night, night endless night
    Terror is the only light
    Bane, bane rage untamed
    Darkness dwells in age-old blame

    Voth aan JOOR-ZAH-FRUL rein
    (With a Dragonrend roar)
    Vokul fen mah, fen mah
    (Evil will fall, will fall)
    Fin norok ved viing bonaar
    (The fiercest black wings humbled)
    Vokul fen mah
    (Evil will fall)

    Sul, sul fent alok
    (Day, day shall arise)
    Nahkriin mahfaeraak nahlot
    (Vengeance forever silenced)
    Qahnaar fin mey wo nis koraav
    (Vanquish the fool who cannot see)
    Vokunne qiilaan wah fin krein
    (shadows bow to the sun)

    Voth aan JOOR-ZAH-FRUL rein
    (With a Dragonrend roar)
    Vokul fen mah, fen mah
    (Evil will fall, will fall)
    Fin norok ved viing bonaar
    (The fiercest black wings humbled)
    Vokul fen mah
    (Evil will fall)

    Malukah Warm Light

    Cold Vs. Warm

    The background lights are finally back! Yay! I wanted to wait until the acoustic treatment and room structure were done before bringing them in. As soon as I put them in place, the room felt a lot more inviting. 🙂 I managed to find a camera angle that hides my 2nd “officey” desk that is always full of papers and pens. Hehe!

    And, I finally got a chance to experiment with cold and warm lights. I’ve only used cold/white lights before. They were the ones I bought because that’s what folks on YouTube recommended. I remember when I received a ring light I ordered, it had two light bulbs. A cold and a warm. I thought, “pshh… who would want a yellow light?” It went into the closet and stayed there forgotten… until now.

    Fast foward several years, and I found myself wondering… What would a warm light look like? And so I went hunting for that discarded warm ring light bulb. Hahaha! And you know what? I loved it! It transforms the scene into a cozy, homey place. Check out this difference in tones…

    Cold:

    This says, “Hello, this is me with a light.”

    Warm:

    Now, check THIS out. Doesn’t it say, “Hello, welcome to my small, personal singing concert. Please take a seat and make yourself at home”?

    Hahahahaha! I like it! I’m going to be testing it out for the next few concerts. Let me know what you guys think!
