Last night, we attended a CD debut party/concert at The Flying Pig for Watercolor Harps, Tammy Naze & Cheryl Murphy, accompanied by a cello player (I'm so sorry-can't remember the name!) who played an earthy sounding cello that was made in 1914!
They've just released 2 CD's, one based on the color green and the other based on the color blue. It's an intriquing concept, at least it was for me. When I think of any given color, I think of emotion, a visual of a colored object, possibly a memory, a piece of art that I've made, but have never thought of color in terms of sound. But that's exactly what they've done! If you click on this link and scroll down a bit, they give a much better explanation of the process than I can.
The CDs were made with the intention of being played so when you listen to them, you relax and are transported to the sounds of spring, the inspiration for the About Green cd, and the sounds of Lake Michigan inspired the cd About Blue, both of which are for sale at The Flying Pig.
Notice the peaceful, serene looks on both Cheryl's and Tammy's faces while they worked their magic, running their fingers over the strings of the harps? It was a unique experience to have seen & heard in person, I'm so glad that we went. We bought one of the cd's already, and the 2nd one will probably be gotten real soon. It might be just the kind of music I need in the studio!. They' have more cd'd in the works, as they work their way through the color palette-can't wait to hear more colors!
No concert here would be complete without hearing the bullfrogs singing from the pond that's adjacent to the stage. For those who have performed in the past and have never heard a bullfrog before, their reaction is hilarious! But then I think it's hilarious that there are people who have never heard a bullfrog:) Tammy was waiting for them to accompany them last night though, and for once they didn';t cooperate-go figure!
And to make the day even better at The Flying Pig, yesterday morning the Press Gazette not only published an article on them, but had the headline, big as life, right on the front page-cool! You can read it here, and I hope you do read it. As often as I speak of this place, the article manages to capture it very well. If you're still with me, stay tuned for another post, maybe today yet, for news of a new award-I'm excited!
