Soundtrack to Serenity

Friday, 27 February 2015

The next time someone interrupts you mid-meditation, tells you to turn off Enya and come back down to Earth, tell them to talk to the hand – which, by the way, feels much better now, thanks, after listening to the music of Katy Tsai and Tina Marsden.

Haunting Music: Birds on a Wire

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

One morning while reading a newspaper, Brazilian composer Jarbas Agnelli saw a photograph of birds on an electric wire. He cut out the photo and was inspired to make a song using the exact location of the birds as musical notes. He was curious to hear what melody the birds created, and the result was hauntingly beautiful.
