I was inspired to start a discussion that featured the music/ videos that inspire the light within all of us and most importantly.... CREATE the light with their musical connections.
Being in charge of our desitny is KEY right now. We must all do our part.
I have spent an entire year healing the wounds of everyone around me (working as an empath, energy healer, teacher and historian)... not to mention the ones that came TO me that I wasnt even aware of. I have not taken a single step towards creating MY light manifesto (beyond the light that is my natural loving, healing, nurturing MOTHERLY nature, anyway).... MY MUSIC!
I have been so serious and so focused on making sure "everyone else is ok" (as if this was some noble way of redeeming myself for the things that I avoided TRULY confronting head on...) by taking side steps \... or sometimes bunny hops...even LEAPS ahead by creating what and when the people wanted me to. . . Catering to the music THEY wanted to hear, etc/ etc....
I have only made two completely new songs in the past year and they are both covers.
Mind you... they are very unique covers/// but still covers.
I am going to start this discussion off with the latest cover I completed.
So you can see where I left off.
Most of you know where I started, but if you dont... here is the past 10 yrs of music I made:
The cover I did was of this Smashing Pumpkins Song... "Ava Adore" the pumpkins fans didnt like my song... but hey, i enjoyed it. here is the original:
and here is my deconstructed version.
it is cut short... but I have attached the full length version as well
it reminds me of going down into the dark side,,, yet still finding the beauty in it.
TRANSMUTING IT... and RECREATING it for all!!
The next two replies will be of my biggest musical inspirations
p.s. arleem u must show me how to imbed these videos!!
so how this all started was i wanted to show you my angel of the moment...
he is my biggest musical inspiration at the moment...
i have one true inspiration and ill reference her in my next post.
but on to james... hes just a kid. came out of a little small town in england... went from a dj to a phenomenal composer overnight~!!
anyway... the way he describes making music... the process for him... it resonates with me so deeply! if you go to youtube and search for him, u wont believe the vast amount of magical musical landscapes this boy has created, remade, dissescted, reconstructed and made it all his own. he just does it for all the right reasons... and creating LIGHT through his music is just so NATURAL for him...
here is a very recent interview, i find ever-so endearing:
and below is a wonderful article from pitchfork..
he became famous around the exact month my awakening happened . May 1st 2011. I have followed him ever since. You will see as you continue to read on how far he has come... in only a year.
Once you listen to "The Wilhelm Scream" your heart will melt... not to mention the live performance
even further down the article. I get bored a bit listening to artists talk.. but not him....
enjoy... my LOVE !!
THE BIG HUG NEEDS SOME PERFORMANCES LIKE THIS ONE:
JUST THE EXPRESSIONS ON PEOPLE'S FACES ALONE...
LIGHT IS OOZING FROM HIS FINGERTIPS VIA HIS HEART!
HE EVEN HAS THE TOUGH GUYS CRYING!!
