I just came across this YouTube video on the Fiber Focus blog.
Elis Regina is one of my favorite singers. A Brazilian, Elis sings in Portuguese, a language of which I can understand almost nothing. This matters little to me as her voice is more like musical instrument. Perhaps I should state everything in the past tense. Elis died in 1982 at the age of 36.
Three years ago, I was inspired to create a piece based on her beautiful voice.
No doubt, this does not well enough capture her rich, clear voice.
I'm debating a change of tunes in the CD player to include her. I'm just worried that if I do, that will be the end of the Signs of the Times series. I am much too affected by music when I work. I will listen to the same CDs over and over again until a piece or series is finished.
Are others as affected as I am by music when they create?
