Colors and Sounds

Pebrero 19, 2008

Did you know that colors have sound? Five musicians created songs inspired by a color. Five directors also made music videos for the songs. Among the compositions, my favorite is Marie Digby’s “Paint Me in Your Sunshine.”

Paint me in your sunshine/ Wake my sleepy eyes/ Round me in your comfort/
Stay with me for all of time

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Darken clouds for your rays of hope

So paint me in your sunshine/ Walk with me, stay by my side/ Fill my head with stories/ For love and war and glory

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Light the path that will lead me home/ Oh, oh, Home

One day the world will grow colder/ Everything we’ve come to cherish crumbles/ And only then will we turn back and remember your glow

Paint me in your sunshine/ Leave the part of you behind/ Tell me where I’ll find you/ And send me off to another day/ Till we meet tomorrow

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Hold me close till the day that I grow old/ Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh/ Mm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm

The Music of Dennis Doyle

Nobyembre 28, 2007

 

celtic-musician.jpgThe day may have started wrongly, but beauty is all around, waiting to be appreciated. Searching for Celtic music, I stumbled upon a musician named Dennis Doyle. Upon listening to a sample tune, I fell in love with his music. Unfortunately, I only found bits of information about him. Dennis Doyle is a Celtic harpist, a singer, a storyteller, professor and an author. I hope you will enjoy his music as much as I did and let me know what you think.

I have also included a few more of his music in my sonific widget. I particularly love “The Last Rose of Summer.” It’s the last song in the playlist.
