EVERY BLADE OF GRASS A FLOWER



To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
William Blake -- Auguries of Innocence



And more...



(Thanks to Avi)

The third video, Spiegel im Spiegel (mirror in mirror) is most beautiful!
It is also interesting to me to open two windows and play it at the same time as the same tune in you-tube is playing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8qg_0P9L6c
. . . starting at slightly different times of course -- the same tune overlaid on itself.
... Anyway, thanks for sharing this music that helps us feel the sacredness of each tone, each moment

Lou,

About Robert Brother's post.

Only Bobcat would look at a blog post with three videos and proceed to play two of them at the same time...


Miss you,

Jim Britell

Hi Jim,

Miss u 2.

I believe that you misunderstood Bobcat's two-video suggestion. The link he gives at youtube is identical to the 3rd video in my post. I believe that he is suggesting a sort of two window "echo effect" with two playings of the same video with a small delay.

Given the extraordinary minimalist quality of the Arvo Part composition, such an audio overlay might indeed produce an interesting effect. Perhaps, it's worth a try.

hugs,

lou
