Mandala - A Planetary Musical Palindrome by Daniel Starr-Tambor

This is trippy. And simply an amazing feat of creativity. Daniel Starr-Tambor composed this abstract musical composition by assigning each planet(oid) a particular note along the natural harmonic series, ranging from Mercury’s B to Pluto’s C# two octaves up. The notes are played in a pattern corresponding to orbital periods of each planet.

I’ll let his description tell you the rest:

With more than 62 vigintillion individual notes, “Mandala” is the longest palindrome in existence. Composed using the first nine partials of the Natural Harmonic Series repeating at the accelerated tempos of our solar system, Mandala would continue without repetition for over 532.25 septendecillion years. In homage to “Art of the Fugue” by J.S. Bach, “Mandala” has been crafted to include the “musical signature” of it’s author: the stereo imaging is arranged to reflect the exact position of the solar system at the moment of his birth, from the perspective of the Sun as it faces the constellation Libra, so that each note chronicles his birthday on every planet.

Did I mention that this was amazing? Well done, sir. If you aren’t as blown away by this as me, we can’t be friends.

This cover was requested by my little sister. Here is my take on "When She Loved Me" by Sarah McLachlan from Toy Story 2 - aka THE SADDEST SONG OF ALL TIME. Enjoy lovelies. xx

WHEN SHE LOVED ME (from “Toy Story 2”)

When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful
Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart
And when she was sad, I was there to dry her tears
And when she was happy, so was I, when she loved me.

Through the summer and the fall, we had each other, that was all
Just she and I together, like it was meant to be
And when she was lonely, I was there to comfort her
And I knew that she loved me.

So the years went by, I stayed the same
And she began to drift away, I was left alone
Still I waited for the day, when she’d say “I will always love you.”

Lonely and forgotten, never thought she’d look my way,
She smiled at me and held me, just like she used to do,
Like she loved me, when she loved me

When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful,
Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart
When she loved me.

A new original song, again inspired by the brilliant NBC series Hannibal. Music and words by me. Enjoy! xxx

Waltz for Lecter (inspired by “Hannibal”)

please come in.
i won’t bite,
simply whet my appetite
with whatever foods you may bring
from the dark winter garden of night.

what’s that smell?
is it fever?
spreading deeper? butter-hot, red as the
flame-drips that bred the black
sin in the hearts of believers.

you’ll find my crown on the head of a creature
and my name on the lips of the dead
i am speaking of dread and hunger
do you know hunger?
precisely.
it needs to be fed.

please begin.
i won’t interrupt.
drink wine from my cup and eat from my table.
perhaps you are able
to stomach what once was corrupt.

it has a taste:
misbehavior.
no saviors here, just fare to be swallowed,
bones to be hollowed;
for rudeness yields exquisite flavors.

you’ll find my crown on the head of a creature
and my name on the lips of the dead
i am speaking of dread and hunger
do you know hunger?
precisely.
it needs to be fed.

(bridge, variation on the ‘hannibal’ theme)

Yes, this song has more issues than a soap opera character, but it’s also damn catchy.

Ah, yes, back when I had… different aspirations and directed a music video for a jazz band.
The recording studio doubled as a film location, the rented camera had more issues than a soap opera character and none of us knew anything about video editing.
Good times.

The Nat King Cole Trio | It's Kind of Lonesome Out Tonight
(1947)

I look at the passing lovers
That slowly wander by
My heart shakes it's head and whispers,
"How many times can I die?"
