Just to say HI !
- Since the "disappearance" of my dear friend Céline a.k.a. Tibodo, founder of the Apo-Weekly-Challenge group I had been at a loss, can't really blame her disappearance for this lack of enthusiasm for continuing creating fractals, or any other type of art, though have been practicing with several tutorials but I am not satisfied with the results.
- Anyway I have always experienced some "down" periods at about this time of the year (Fall in my side of the planet) even though Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons ... so whatever.
- Had to do something in this journal and this is what I can manage for now.
- I managed to add many of my favourite classical music pieces (Thank you Alex !!)
- Discovered a fabulous pianist and orchestra conductor. As usual with my "discoveries" this is like re-inventing the wheel.
- This fantastic interpreter is Dame Mitsuko Uchida, fell totally in love with how she plays the piano and in many opportunities conducts Mozart piano concerts, specially #20 with the Salzburg Cameratta. (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hbzy3A… )
- Among the many pieces I added to my playing lists is Toccata and Fugue in D Minor by Bach (both for Orchestra and Organ) (www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipzR9b… andwww.youtube.com/watch?v=bkUUjU…) and I believe this is my most favourite one, mainly due to being "exposed", when I was around 3 or 4 yo, to that beautiful and incredibly creative animated film by Walt Disney "Fantasia" (the film was created in 1940) I could never forget the incredible sensation it caused in my mind that combination of sound and colour.
- One of the reasons why I love colours and music too.
- Well I did say this was about idle thoughts, you are of course free to leave
- This will be all for now but first I want to send a big hug and many many thanks to all my friends and visitors that were so kind to leave a comment and also for the favourites given to my (meager) artistic production
