I never took Bjork seriously as an artist. I formed an opinion of her without even knowing her work…which proves how ignorant I was. After seeing her body of work, I have enormous respect for her unique talent and vision. I wonder if there are any artists who can bring music and fine art together like she can. No doubt, she is one of the multi-talented artists, if not the only one, who can bring the visual and the audio realm into one unique and personal body of work.
There is no better music to start off my vacation. My week long vacation starts tomorrow. Happy Vacation!
I loved his Hungarian Dance. I used to listen to it over and over but never got tired of it. It’s probably my favorite music piece of all time. I vaguely believed that I would see his live performance one of these days…
the day I heard his passing I played Abbado’s Hungarian Dance for my 4 year old daughter. It was her first orchestral music that she listened to with sincerity.
When I take my 3 min imaginary vacation at work, I see a beach, palm trees, and hear island music in my head.
It’s always fascinating to see the process and the final form at the same time. The process of making music and the end result of musical performance. Something like the Broadway musical the Lion King where you see the performers behind the masks and the mechanism of the props. Another example is the audition TV program.
She takes me to a new place. Another sexy performance by Winehouse.[youtube http://youtu.be/OYQrlrHHIIY]
Some artists, you just have to be in their presence to know who they are. her free spirit lifts me up.
