Eternally Composed, or The Songs That Don’t End

Hello all! I’m back again after a successful move, and (nearly) finished setting up my studio in its new location. While I’m adding the finishing touches, I thought it would be great to get back into the swing of things with a new post here and a History Hunt post later this week!

The last post I made was a crossover between music and visual art, Alan Warburton’s presentation of a Bach composition in neon. Before that was Melissa S. McCracken’s paintings of music. Now, here’s yet another interaction between visual art and music, this time by Jeffrey Michael Austin.

Austin’s five-part series is titled Eternally Composed. Each small composition is meant to be repeated forever, as indicated by the infinity symbol ( ) written above each piece.

You can view all five parts of this series here on his website. Be careful not to get trapped in playing one of these selections, unless that’s what you’d like to do for all eternity!

A Musical Blast From the Past!

This week’s celebration of human creativity is dedicated to people of my generation and older, who remember when Windows 98 and XP were new! Everyone else: here’s a piece of history for you, in the form of music made from sound effects of Windows editions from bygone days.

I love music made from old technology, so don’t be surprised when another musical blast from the past turns up in a couple of months…!

A Different Kind of Birdsong

Today in “Music Can Be Found In Many Places,” I bring you…musical birds!

Given this “staff” has six lines instead of the usual five, I think a few liberties with the notes were taken. But when the result is such a catchy and creative tune, I’m hardly about to complain!

Next time I’m out on a walk, I should really take my camera and see what kind of bird music I can find…!
