These are the wonderful works I've been admiring this month.
Where is My Mind? by Hum4CHAOS It's just such a beautiful display of something that is thought about all too often. We try to visually define what our brains are thinking but, of course, owing to the issue at hand, we are "lost" in our definition. But somehow, Hum4CHAOS presents it with a magnificent thought cosmos of colours and shades. It just feels so unfiltered from the brain. Mademoiselle Noir (song) by ppeppina I'm a big fan of the french piano style, and Mademoiselle Noir really went somewhere original. The melody is like an old story song and hook at the end of the chorus is so fresh it gives me chills. I just enjoy listening to the song over and over, and if I had an accordian that wasn't so cheap and out of tune, it would be a perfect addition. Light by Anita I love displays of artificial light, as well as experimenting with a digital camera, and the concept of merely sitting in traffic and creating something like this is really interesting. The colour spectrum in the photo is quite mesmerising and following the light trails makes it so exciting. Good job being productive anytime, anywhere. Black & White (Piano Instrumental) by WilliamG_Music I was immediately hooked by this piano track, mostly because of its humble use of the piano, very much like Eric Satie. WilliamG_Music writes an original but nostalgiac, melodic piece that really leaves my mind in a creative storm concerning the story direction. It is, as he explains what he hopes for, a romantic piece, in the traditional sense. Life is shit without you in it. by Ryan Patrick The main reason why I like this track so much is that it points creative minds in a direction whilst leaving a lot of room for expression of the imagination. It's a good representation of the perfect hitrecorder, encouraging contribution and sharing ideas to form something great. And from the piano track given, it sparks so many ideas in my mind, and that's just me. This record is a good base for any aspiring lyricists.
Be careful not to lose yourself in your thoughts. You might not find your way back.
Mostly acrylic gouache with some charcoal and actual acrylic paint to soften the edges of "space".
EDIT// I thought this could fit the theme of outsiders! :)
I have always loved sojushots' amazing illustration "let down your hair", and now it inspired me to write this song. It's a bit darker than the original story of rapunzel, just like the illustration. The same story, different ending! :))
I would love love love loove it if someone would add some accordian or strings to this song, you know, to build it up bigger, and then maybe in the final verses also some drums..... it would be awesome...... ;)
Here are the lyrics:
A man came across this old tower one day It was straight like from a book he once read He lifted his head up and saw this young lady And here's what the lady said:
CHORUS "Moi je m'appelle mademoiselle Noir Et comme vous pouvez le voir Je ne souris, ni ris, ni vis Et c'est tout ce qu'elle a dit"*
The man was so scared he could only run away He ran to the town and then said: "I just saw a lady with the longest dark hair And I think she's a living dead!"
The people, so scared, took their guns and their swords They ran to the tower and then They saw the pale lady and felt a great fear When they heard how she said it again:
The people, they knew what this all was about She was clearly a demon from hell They decided to set her long hair on fire In the end it would burn her as well
But the lady was no demon she was a lonely soul Just like in that book they once read Still waiting for her prince while her hair was on fire The one last time she said:
(*"Me, my name is miss Black And like you can see I don't smile or laugh or live" And that's all she said.)

I was trying to infuse some good ole' Black and White film romantic elegance into this piece...
Maybe someone here could use it as a resource for a short film or something to that effect.
I've been trying to teach myself how to play the piano and write songs with it so here's a little one I just put together.
Lots of room for remixing. Have fun.
