"All the good music has already been written
by people with wigs and stuff." -- Frank Zappa
The Healing Power of MusicIf we saw what was at the back of all the medicines which are used for healing purposes, if we ask what it is in them that heals, we shall find that it is the different elements which constitute our physical being. The same elements are present in those medicines, and that which is lacking in us is taken from them, or the effect which should be produced in our body is produced by them. The vibration which is necessary for our health is created in the body by their power. The rhythm which is necessary for our cure is brought about by bringing the circulation of the blood into a certain rhythm and speed.The Healing Power of Music by randallstuartpeik
By this we learn that health is a condition of perfect rhythm and tone. Music is rhythm and tone. When the health is out of order, it means the music is out of order. Therefore, when the music is not right in us the help of harmony and rhythm is very necessary to bring us into a state of harmony and rhythm. This way of healing can be studied and understood by studying the music of one's
symphony stellataone of my earliest memories -symphony stellata by Lissomer
my mother, steadfast mentality
slowly driving her forward, repeating
repeating re-pea-ting bar by bar
nocturne number eight in d flat major;
never anything less than perfection,
even when fingertips wear thin,
when patience wears thinner,
and chopin fades into dusti am a child born of icy constellations,
cigarette smoke, and canorous chords,
composers whispering at the edge of my sensesblack-garbed, it's grandmother's funeral -
my violin cries massenet's méditation.
my thirteen year-old heart has never
felt so incapable of expression,
so goddamn inadequate, and d major
has never sounded so heartbroken.
we return to a phone call from father,
his composure cracking as he tells us
we'll be doing this all over again;
96 hours, two grandmothers gone,
now all i have is massenet and
it isn't fairwe'd never know it by looking at the sky,
but countless stars waxed requiem to
create us; cenotaphs in the empyrean blacksixteen years old and i can breathe -

Calling all music composers!Hello Insignia fans, this is Koru Xypress speakingCalling all music composers! by Koru-Xypress
I'm planning on working on my personal project, INSIGNIA, and I'm calling all the talented musicians who can compose music digitally.
It's nothing serious or anything, just for fun. I can provide the story, characters, and the lore of the world, and you musicians can have something work with.
No profit, no obligations, no deadlines, just artsy people gathering together and composing their work into a somewhat bigger scale.
More about the project. Insignia has a children's fantasy atmosphere, and so I'm looking for a Final Fantasy / Tales of Eternia / Legend of Legaia feel, though I'm really just interested in what anyone can bring to the table, so anything's fine really, as long as it fits
Well hope to hear from some of you soon. Bye now~
GESUALDO...GESUALDO... by Chaosfive-55
SHALL We sing a madrigal for the Prince of Venosa;
Gesualdo, composer of genius, centuries ahead
Of his time, an obsessed uxoricide---
His mind and music haunted forever
By visions of blood, the soul of his wife ascending
In holy rapture from a score of dagger wounds
In her body...
His servants did in the Duke, her lover--Don Carlo
Had eyes only for Donna Maria:
"She is not dead yet--
I can't believe she's dead!" he screamed,
Stabbing her over and over and OVER
AND OVER AGAIN...
No trial for the Prince of Venosa;
What prison could be crueler than
The torment of his own mind?
Why did you cut down all those trees, Signoré?
Daily beatings, administered
By his servants; nightly vigils,
Staring at ancient cryptic symbols of alchemical
Significance, as the mad dissonant voices of
Tenebrae, music weblike, intricate,
Forming in his brain like pale stalactites,
Resonant with grief...
At last he lies dying on the grandiose bed
Which he stained with so much blood...

when names held little powers,
