SoundSpot: Living Strings


Built / mixed in the autumn of 2007, "Living Strings" still goes as one of my favorite albums. I hardly listen to DJ mixes, as their main dissadvantage is that they require a certain skilled audience. Still, this album managed to impressed me due to the way it was made and, most of all, due to its actual content.
These so-called album-mixes are generally made by DJ-producers which will put together a range of tracks (their or others) to create a tighter, more unique package than one of a regular album. The tracks are remixed or re-edited, then put together to generate a good kind of coherence.
It was made by a close friend of mine and it received very good feedback from all types of people, ranging from youngsters to matures, from rocker-addicts to techno-lovers.
The album itself - a listener-friendly, memorable sequence of well chosen great tracks, repeatable such as the beauty that never fades.

My Passion

                                                              * M.C. Escher

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved the art of drawing, music, photography, etc. As I grew older, the maturity and experience brought to me knowledge of self and I come to form my own opinions and tastes, to know what I like and why.

First of all, it’s about the visual art and music. They interpenetrate and for me it just can’t be one without the other. Art has great meaning and I hope that through this blog, I will be able to dedicate more time to it, as it is somehow forgotten due to day to day little problems, which have been occupied my life lately. “Life is short, art is long”, someone has said… It fulfills me, it is my hobby, my passion. 

So now I invite you to see and hear the nice things which brighten up my day.
PS: At the end, I will put a quote regarding that post.
The first one, I guess it applies to me a little bit.
