FORGOTTEN — Music Themes

Johnny  chose the music theme FORGOTTEN for this week.

Music can be a guide
That takes one
So far outside,
Expanding experience,
So that self
Is forgotten,
There is no memory
And all is One.
Music can take one
So far within,
That the personal
Merges with the music,
So that the
Curtain of illusion
Is forgotten,
All is illusion,
And all is One.

I have some personal music favorites which I use as transportation to the OTHER, to the FORGOTTEN, that I did not use, opting instead for performances new to me. Some of these I selected for their being appropriate to the theme, a few for that beautiful quality that transports the listener to a new realm, somewhere that maybe is not entirely new, somewhere visited by musicians and listeners now and again, somewhere only FORGOTTEN for a while …

Perhaps one of these pieces will be a guide to the FORGOTTEN for you?

.Lana Trotovsek, of Slovenia, has such close to perfect execution that I am able to forget about the work and time and effort that goes into learning and practice and just give myself over to listening….

.
.Music sometimes guides the listener almost too far inward into psyche all too realistic, through the music characterization, so that there is understanding, blurring the lines between what is manufactured and what is real. Perhaps it is more pleasant for some experience to be FORGOTTEN, to not know at all ……

EMBERS — Max Richter

.
No words and without a sound
Star shine within, without…
A rainbow lights the night.
.
All possibilities,
As branches of a tree
Opening,
As does a flower.
