I have been listening to a lot of Chopin's Nocturnes. I have to feel the pieces, see the colors and the moods. When composing or writing melody lines does it make you feel something? Or is it a carbon copy of the next guy's piece? Or is it something like you have already done? Have you evolved creatively?
There is nothing wrong per se with doing what you know. However, thinking that you will grow and mature from doing the same thing in the same way will for sure not allow you to expand. You have not taken a risk. If all you have done is dive into large puddles of mud for the sake of being amongst your environment how would you then decipher that you have a spring of water right behind you that is clear blue and effervescent?
It cannot be taught. It can only be learned through experience and facing the moments.
Tchaikovsky's "Sweet Dream"
Beautiful melodic lines. Glorious. Is it melancholy or is it playfully happy? Perhaps a bit of both.
it may not be the perfect shade
it may not be the way you see it
it may not be the style you like
it may not be the choice you'd make
it may not be your timing
you may not see a thing's at stake
but it's me
yes, my life
that's the beauty of freedom
The more freedom gets taken from you
the more you want it back
the more you want more of it
the more you want to taste it
the more you see how much of it you've lost
it makes sense why the mountains stand in peace
or why the huge tree over on the hill sits on its own
tranquil as can be
it makes sense
it all makes sense to me
so let me be
Susana Baca glorious. The musicians backing her are sweet in the pocket. Beautiful. I feel tingles.
There is only one film that in my opinion encapsulates the beauty of life in all stages. That is Cinema Paradiso. The soundtrack is splendid. Music that touches the heart beyond measure. Love, Loss, Reconcile. Truly a glorious masterpiece.
When you cannot speak using your own words you use music to project what you feel in your heart.
"things" can be read in the underlying in-betweens
more can be translated in what is in between the words said than the actual words
what kind of things?
emotions, history, unseen feelings, unspoken words
in the in-between you will discover more than you would when something is spoken
in the in-between there can be enormous chaos that one might not see
it is embroiled in the density of your bones
fighting to stay alive when at the same time wants to so badly be released from its prison
have you ever heard the expression "it's not what you say it's how you say it?"
how about "it's not what you say but what you don't say?"
doesn't what you don't say also have the same impact of what you do say?
the implied word is deceptive. it is a mask of what one wants others to see. underneath it all is the
truth. that truth encompasses layer upon layer of all. It only wants to flow so it does not stay in the same
cave of existence
it too wants to flow like a river into its next existence...TRANSFORM...into its next form...one that is free flowing. growing evolving from what it once was into something more grand
