The composer that I chose to listen to for the
2nd Annual Challenge of Music Blog Hop is: Ralph Vaughan Williams.
One of the pieces that he composed was
"A Pastoral Symphony (No. 3) Oboe Concerto; Molto moderato";
with The London Symphony Orchestra
(Bryden Thomson, conductor) which was recorded in St. Jude's Church, London, 11 27th & 28th, 1987 and on 4-15, 1988.
This is the one that I chose as my inspiration for the necklace and earrings that I designed. About 5 minutes into the CD the music changes quite dramatically and this is what I focused on...
I heard bold, bright notes and dark, irregular ones and that is why I chose to use black meteorite nuggets with the contrast of bright copper rolo chain; the MOP daggers, in teal and cream represent the abrupt changes from one section of the music to the next which seem to me, as I listened, to 'tear at the fabric' of notes.
Here is the finished piece.
After I purchased this CD, I and my beading friend both listened to it and I found it most interesting that we both 'saw' the music in such different ways! :) Be sure to take a look at Carolyn's Creations blog to see the difference...!
Here is the link to go to hear the music that inspired the creation for what I made.
....and if you'd like to see other inspired creators finished pieces, here is a link that will point you in the right direction! :) http://treasures-found.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-challenge-of-music-reveal.html
