When the nearest stars are observed
and the furthest ancient light is discovered
we see what became the past far removed
from the beginning.
If we remove ourselves from physical bonds
and trivial thoughts, what used to be feeling
transforms into knowing that what is felt and tasted
is no different than the first particle sent into the void.
If we allow the light and dark matter
to return back to us, to remind us
of our own beginning we see and
hear the music of energy and motion.
If we extend our imagination
and slow the waves of energy
we see infinite colors and
and the building blocks
of a concept still mystifying
the child standing in awe in the empty fields.
Recently I discovered the wonderful music of cellist Zoe Keating. She is a champion of the arts and independent musicians. On February 19th, her husband passed away from cancer. With her music filled with such emotion and expansive energy, listening to it now has a new light.
Self described 80s synth pop, EDM, and classical piano. I listened to a couple of songs on the website and like what I heard. Looking forward to more and a few hours to close my eyes and let the music carry me away. http://colortheory.com
There is much great music out there and it is a full-time job keeping up and my ears need a break. Here are the recent releases I have picked up along with a rating of 1 to 5. A lot of these releases I purchased from a sweet reseller and independent label FiXT – http://www.fixtonline.com and http://www.fixtstore.com
Celldweller: End of An Empire (Chapter 02: Love) (*5*)
An early morning walk through a November-drenched park with Leroy, Alaskan coffee, and music. As the wind blew hard off the lake, yet the pace was slow and purposeful, I chose “Lost in the Chambers of the Sea”, by Startle the Heavens (Ben Leopard).
Starting off brisk and cloudy, we watched thousands of ducks float upon the water and eat. Hiking through the trees and along another lake, we left the city behind and let nature cradle our spirits and heal our minds. Looking for peace, we found the rising light and a path through the forest.
