Creative Collaboration: The Flower’s Song

16 Mar

As has been noted from time to time, our creative pair, Lolita and Deuce, enjoy daily walks, rain or shine, up and down the treelined streets of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  Admittedly, much of this sometimes relaxing, sometimes demanding (depending on either partner’s energy level to some extent and moreso on the number of run-ins with other dogs, cats, rabbits, squirrels, skunks), thrice-daily outing is spent in reflection on artistic concerns.  Lolita does her best creative thinking during these strolls with her canine Muse.

Nevertheless, there is always time to appreciate the beauty and wonder of nature.  As a musician, Lolita is naturally sensitive to the variety of natural sounds around her – the bird’s song, the insect’s drone, the squirrel’s chatter.  But on a deeper level, Lolita also senses that the voiceless objects of nature – the trees, stones, flowers – also have their songs.  When she gazes up at a stately elm, rising some 200 ft into the air, branches extended and in full foliage, she hears in her mind nothing less than a powerful, resonant brass choir, heavy on the trombones, declaring majestically.

This strong sense of voice emanating from nature’s voiceless has inspired Lolita to create music for display with paintings of natural subjects.  Other composers on the site have also taken a stab at a few of these audio-visual “collaborations” with the subjects of our natural world, by writing music for nature art.

One of these music and art collaborations involves a light hearted, abstract image of two energetic daisies, by artist Cindy Davis.

a happy pair of yellow and gold abstract flowers, with hearts, dance and waive.

Yellow blossoms exude energy. Uplifted leaves express joy. Artist Cindy Davis’ abstract flower pair invites us to their dance, their celebration.

spark on!
