Robin Pluer sings “Time Machine,” Eric Segnitz’s new holiday song
The day after Christmas is perfect for a song about second chances and recapturing the past. TCD video by Breanne Brennan.
TCD proudly presents “Time Machine,” a poignant new song (copyright 2012) by Eric Segnitz, introduced and interpreted by Robin Pluer. Segnitz, best known as violinist, arranger, mandolinist and guitarist for Present Music, accompanies Pluer (who, by the way, will spend New Year’s Eve singing with the Chris Hanson Band at Via on Downer.)
Segnitz and Pluer recorded the song, which briefly quotes a waltz by Vidar Skrede, a few days before Christmas at DV Productions, in Shorewood; David Vartanian produced the audio. TCD superintern Breanne Brennan shot the video over the weekend at the picturesque Dretzka’s Department Store, in Cudahy. Pluer chose the location. Many thanks to Dretzka’s for allowing us to shoot there and to everyone for working so hard and so fast, so we can post this beautiful song between the holidays. Special thanks go to Breanne, who spent a good part of her Christmas Eve editing.
The song, a meditation on the passage of time, second chances in life and recapturing the past, fits the day after Christmas. So enjoy this one last Christmas gift from Eric Segnitz, Robin Pluer and ThirdCoast Digest.
