Yes, my WordPress counter has reached this morning 200.000 views! Thank you so much for stopping by my Blogsite! It’s really a pleasure to share with you day by day my experiences, events and works. Yes, this is a…”Glorious Morning” (sorry for the self-celebration!) as the title of the videoclip I created with a beautiful original piano solo by Gene Emerson, from Canada. Gene is a talented composer and pianist. I was really amazed and fascinated by her music. When I heard her “Glorious Morning” track I immediately thought to some of my “Lacer/actions” artworks (natural and realistic images of decomposed publicity posters, cracks, scratches, urban and industrial signs). The clip is inspired by “Spring Arrives” poem written by Rūmī (1207 – 17 December 1273), a 13th-century Persian poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic (his influence transcends national borders and ethnic divisions and People have greatly appreciated his spiritual legacy: he has been described as the “most popular poet” and the “best selling poet” in the United States, among Muslims).
“Glorious Morning” is really an ode to a beautiful, warm and sunny morning at the beginning of Spring, – after long cold winter – when the world is changing, the flowers are blooming and the birds are singing. Such a great change in nature has inspired Gene Emerson to compose this track. Rumi‘s lovely poem ‘Spring Arrives’ is very close to the spirit of this piece. His poem is so much full of optimism. He throws away all dogmas, religious fanaticism and pessimism. His free spirited vision of love and passion for life is so overwhelming. Although the poem is 800 years old, but Rumi’s description of flowers and trees would never become old and it is very relevant for our Spring in 2015.
For the clip I selected nine pics recalling me in some ways the Ode and the surprising Gene Emerson’s performance. And thank you again for following.
