Music & Sound by Cedric Fangeat

 

Sometimes I wish I could hear and understand the language of the trees, the grass and other insects that I meet while rambling through the forest and fields that I find around the place I live. We name them and name the sounds they make, differently depending of the language we use, lets say, as an example, a duck in english makes “quack quack” while in French it does “coin coin”.

This video explores nature and searches for its sounds. It also is an invitation to go further in your natural surrounding to make your own research and discoveries, because if you never go to walk in a field, after all, what would you know about its smells, its sounds, its colours and other way to excite your senses.

As the saying states : “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

If you never go to the forest, then does the forest even exist for you?

Think about it. But more importantly, go to explore!

A Musical Tweet

A musical tweet

I joined twitter about a year ago and recently, after spending quite some time on it, I noticed that always the same themes and kind of jokes and words were coming back. A short list of this words could include these:

When / That / Soul / Touch / Heart / Real /  Moment / Sexless / Hurt / Love / Feel / Lonely / Deep / Scar / Laugh. So many cliché that are so common on twitter that I myself start to want to banish them from my vocabulary.

So, words and ideas, short jokes and funny phrases are what make twitter alive. You can also share videos, photographs, links towards any pages you like, but there is no audio streaming facilities directly integrated to Twitter. In fact, music isn’t a main pole on this platform, and because I am a musician I decided to try to change that trend. That is how and why A MUSICAL TWEET was born.

Leave your keyboard and go to your piano!

Basically, A musical tweet is a piece of music organised around the same set of rules that are applying to tweets, which really is a limitation of 140 characters, and yet having a fully developed idea. So a musical tweet can use a maximum of 140 notes, used in chords or melodies. Like tweets can be expressed in all the existing languages, a musical tweet can be written for any instrument, even for voice, sang, but the usage of words is prohibited. All shall be express exclusively using music and sounds, but no actual language.Read More
