This is so sweet you could get diabetes: composer Ed de Boer has posted the first public performance of his Prelude to a New Era, which he kindly dedicated to Sabine McNeill.
The prelude is based on the poem Das Leben, das ich selbst gewählt, by Dominik Wortig.
We heard that Ed was keen to have his composition published here, and of course we’re only too happy to oblige.
So here it is, with a few nice visual touches added to make it a bit more interesting (thanks once again to our friends at McKenzie’s Devils!):
Meanwhile, another brilliant musical talent has produced a video we think you’ll like: our friend MK Ultra 666 shows his gentler side with the tone poem, “The Only Response to Stupidity Was Silence”.
Another stunning melding of music and imagery, with overtones of philosophical musings about the larger meaning of it all….
This one’s dedicated to…well, you’ll see.
