Do I believe in magic?
Well of course I do. I have seen the proof of its existence so many times, I would be a fool to deny it.
Magic is perhaps most easily seen in the creative world, the process that all musicians, writers, sculptors, poets, scripters, filmmakers, know intuitively and personally. It is woven into the very fabric of their creations. It has to do with surrender, trust, and releasing the brakes, while giving up control at the very same time. As I suggested in my last post, about Nat’s and my latest machinima, “Unmindful” there was a true air of serendipity and magic in the way that everything fell together perfectly, starting with the building of the world, to the last frame of the movie. Part of that process was finding the right music, and as all of you know who know me well, the music is of utmost importance to me to be able to write and to accompany my poetry when I perform. The music has to be just “right” before I can make a soundtrack for one of our films, and Akoviani’s track, “Aerial”, from his album Hypnotica was the perfect and only fit for “Unmindful.”
Sharing talents and collaborating with people around the world is such a gift and one I hold dearly and what has happened since proves to me that magic is alive and well.Now, a little over 10 days later from posting our film, I found myself being asked to be a part of the composer’s brand new album which will soon be released. He also was looking for, the right voice in his case, and this time, the right voice was mine…smiles. His music was the right music for my project and as it turned out, my voice was the right one for his..
I proudly present a short 60 second teaser, with very good production values, to announce Akoviani’s new album,” Catharsis,” which will be released soon. I can hardly wait to hear it all, and I suggest that you stay-tuned and I will let you know when it is released. In the meantime, listen to the beautiful tracks from his album “Hypnotica,” found here : Hypnotica to get a feel of his mind, and great talent. He says this about himself:
“We are all vibrations, energy and nature. We are in a balance of feelings and passions, somewhere in between the mind and the spirit.”
I am honored and thrilled to be part of this teaser:
