The Happiness of Delicious Feeling

The pursuit of happiness through the senses

I see a beautiful melody March 31, 2011

I was away for about 10 days in São Paulo for work, where I managed to snatch a few hours to myself every day. It gave me some time and space to breathe after quite a few hectic months of intense working. It also made me long for a certain type of music. Perhaps spurred and inspired by catching a chorinho band in the fair at Benedito Calixto on the Saturday, I found myself craving quieter melodies. So I found myself listening to the echoey sounds of Arthur Russell. I found myself listening to The Cure’s Disintegration. And soon, I was also craving piano music. I was treated to some Maxence Cyrin and longed for more piano music. So I looked for some Debussy to listen to because I remembered how much I loved Debussy and found a series of beautiful animation made using the Music Animation Machine software. And it made me feel calm for I could see beautiful music and I could hear the colours too.
