A scene that starts with a panoramic view of a Mountain range, followed by the enchanting view of the Forest floor. The rustling of the trees, the tricking water from the stream and the singing of birds. Magic. Then, add the sound of a wooden ball slowing descending down a neatly lined row of wood against the forest slope. Each drop forms the notes of Bach’s Jesu,Joy of Man’s Desiring . The sounds of nature and Bach is a wonderful treat to the ears. I love how everything draws you into a world of pure bliss.
Perfect harmony, how everything falls into place in such order and how each living thing compliment each other. I find it difficult to imagine this scene associated with technology. We have always been fed by images of the future filled with machines and pollution. However, this video shows that the future can be very advanced yet look as fresh as the beginning of time (if we can only keep the environment alive for a least a few more decades). Now let’s buy that cellphone!
Beethoven, Mozart, Bach popular names and legends of the dying genre of classical music. It’s sad that this genre is losing its glamour and magic in this age. However, Benjamin Zander, a conductor, teacher and speaker, opens the door on how to appreciate classical music and how music directly affects us. The talk is filled with humor, passion and music.
Bring shine to people’s eyes.. I guess it’s worth the try.
If you look deep enough you will see music; the heart of nature being everywhere music.
A great video about the Museum of Making Music. One can’t help but feel the wonder of music throughout history. The instruments, the artist and music. I love the testimonials given by the staff. It goes to show how music affects us all. I’ve never been to this place but this video makes me want to go visit. In the meantime, I shall draw inspiration from this. Let’s make music!
