Music is a visible thing

Watch the story of a deaf and mute girl who learns to play the violin against all odds.

Q: Why am I different than others?
A: Why do you have to be like others?

Ephémère

One of the most spectacular shows I have ever attended whas the Ephemere fireworks show last summer. (Yes, I am lagging with my posts about half a year) 😛

Ephemere is one of the most famous fireworks theaters in Europe. The show was a choreographic artwork that was synchronized  in perfect harmony with classical and modern music.

A friend of mine played in the accompanying orchestra and I said to him after show: “Poor you, you were not able to enjoy the show, because you had to play while we were watching the fireworks.” He replied: “Why poor me? It was fantastic. I was part of the show. The fireworks sounds matched our playing perfectly and it even made me goosebumps.” I think that underlines the perfect choreography.

The show was 25 minutes and FREEEEE!

Good thing I forgot my camera at home, so I was able to focus on the music and the visual artwork entirely without having to worry about camera settings 😉

My plurk party:

My own song: Alex Gloworld – Creole Ninja (I Jog)

…not really…but….its title is an anagram of Jenilia Congrejo.

listen on t61: Alex Gloworld – Creole Ninja (I Jog)    

There is a story behind it that you might want to know.  I follow Alex on twitter and vice versa. Last week he linked to a preview (prelisten) of his new song. However, he did not know what title to choose, so meanwhile he named the file “Wootanklingklang”. I protested…. 😛

He uploaded his song to TheSixtyOne the next day… and I LOVE the new title. woot!

Btw, today is Alex’s birthday. Happy Birthday to you, Alex

but you need to be lucky to be online at the right time to capture a nice number of your reputation total on TheSixtyOne.

(just another post documenting my music listening stats ….)    😛
