wish you were here… March 15, 2016 / laura bruno lilly / 8 Comments “Music is a place” Philip Glass The Carina Nebula (photo credit: NASA Hubble Heritage Team) Just a note to say ‘wish you were here’…I am camped out in the midst of prepping Swimming with Swans pieces for recording readiness.

I hope the creative process is going well. The photo you chose is amazing, too! It really inspires my imagination to consider things on a cosmic scale. It is SO easy for me to become extremely myopic in my tiny, little, closed-off, microscopic part of the world. Music, art, and nature have a way of peeling my brain open again, but that picture of the nebula was just the thing that I needed today. Thanks! Loading... Reply laura bruno lilly (Post author) March 20, 2016 at 2:58 pm Yes, the creative process is going well…peppered with times of angst, but well, you know how Mama Goat feels about all of that! 😉 As for the myopia (all you need is another scientific term, eh?), I experience that from time to time, too. I think it’s something that has plagued mankind since forever. So glad sharing a gorgeous NASA photo opened up your world this past week! Loading... Reply Donna@GWGT March 17, 2016 at 11:02 am I wonder if there is music in space and we just can’t hear it? Loading... Reply laura bruno lilly (Post author) March 17, 2016 at 7:23 pm That is a juicy wonderment, Donna. We often think in terms of color-spectrum or the altering of the physics of wave/particle theory in ‘space’…why not music…sound? So there is no ‘atmosphere’ to carry sound waves – but that presupposes our type of ‘ears’ to hear them…. You got my mind pondering this…why not? And, the fun would be to discover how to open up the ‘music’ for us to ‘hear’ it…and then as a musician to harness it and create with it! This gives a whole new meaning to the term “Music of the Spheres 😉 Loading... Reply Jane Chesebrough March 15, 2016 at 4:54 pm sounds good. Loading...
