-So , I said to the rabbit ” Hmmm, I like what you did with this space.” 3.10.17 Pre Easter

    NOTE ALL LINKS AND PICS ARE CLICKABLE

About a year ago around Christmastime, I’d referenced
medieval knights in a post that had it’s inspiration from the
sight of an A framed stone church that stood on
a hill.

That post is here as a reference.

The view I ‘m referring to:

I’d wondered if the reverie had some truth about
the past ,and it’s somewhat fascinating to think of the past and
fantasize what it’d might have been.
And for “fun?” , a conspiracy theory before you look at the
look at the pictures—

Notice the carved
” 4D”
on the ceiling
of the 5th pic.

Could this be the 4rth dimension
that H.G. Wells was referring to in the time machine,carved
by a time traveler of the future -or whatever it is…?

Or …Just maybe…… there’s a “wormhole” inside to
another time…… and so on.

You
can check it out…..I’ll stay here though to keep watch
๐Ÿ™‚
Interestingly, the page states “
Their
original purpose is shrouded in mystery, but Historic
England, which describes the caves as a “grotto”
,
believes they were probably built in the late 18th or early
19th Century – hundreds of years after the Templar order was
dissolved.”
or (Hmm maybe some hideout for hobbits or Narnians?)

As far as the “4D”
Realistically it’s likely a marking by the historical
society of England. ๐Ÿ™‚ but it was entertaining to give a
futuristic sci fi
thought to this. ….

So, architecture, and a play of nature , weather, the view
and ??? … creates emotions and thought, at the
right time.
classical to match the post-

The right time being, when it happens. ๐Ÿ™‚

So take a look……………………….. down this Rabbit

Rabbit hole in farmer’s field leads to ‘mystery caves’

9 March 2017

From the section England

An apparently ordinary rabbit’s hole in a farmer’s field leads to an
underground sanctuary said to have been used by devotees of a
medieval religious order – but is everything what it seems?
According to local legend, the Caynton Caves, near Shifnal, in
Shropshire, were used by followers of the Knights Templar in the
17th Century.
Located less than a metre underground, they appear to be untouched
structurally.

Their original purpose is shrouded in mystery, but Historic
England, which describes the caves as a “grotto”
,
believes they were probably built in the late 18th or early
19th Century – hundreds of years after the Templar order was
dissolved.

He said: “I traipsed over a field to find it, but if you didn’t know
it was there you would just walk right past it. Considering how long
it’s been there it’s in amazing condition, it’s like an underground
temple.”
The tunnel leads to a network of walkways and arches carved out of
sandstone, as well as a font.
Mr Scott said the cave was “quite cramped” and those nearing 6ft
(1.8m) tall would have to bend down to fit in. Some chambers are so
small that those exploring have to enter them on hands and knees.
“I had to crouch down and once I was in it was completely silent.
There were a few spiders in there but that was it. It was raining so
the slope down was quite sludgy but inside the cave was bone dry,”
he added.

The caves were reportedly sealed up in 2012 in a bid to keep away
vandals and practitioners of “black magic”.
While the rumored connection between the caves and medieval
knights seems unlikely, who were the Templars?

The Catholic military order was founded in the 12th Century to guard
pilgrims on their way along the dangerous roads that led to
Jerusalem.
Its members were effectively armed monk-like knights who were
granted certain legal privileges and whose status was backed by the
Church. They were reputed to be the possessors of great wealth and
power.
In 1095, Pope Urban II promised the knights of Europe forgiveness of
their sins if they went on a Crusade to win back Jerusalem for
Christianity. Many responded by “taking the cross” and showed this
act by cutting out red crosses before sewing them into their tunics.

12.8.2016 Dreams….

Art about dreams,… and reality.

As dreams are made on ,

“The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Ye all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind.

We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”

Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” Scene 4 Act 1

Tempest

September 8 2016… long, long ago music.

Long, long ago musicโ€ฆ.A classical style piece BWV 593, 2nd Movement.-
JS Bach-
The organ and flute melodic lines lend a sound-feeling of vast space, and leave one with hypnotic feeling.
-Reminiscent of a modern Vangelis or Styx.
I ported this MIDI through 2 soft synths (Yamaha DX and TTS) to create the realism of true instrumental playing, and also used SonicFX for the added โ€œmildโ€ default reverb and stereo panning.
I mixed down the 2 together – the panning as an extra layer on top of stereo.
I thought that a soft panning might accent the open air feeling of the piece.
It is a somber and a meditative composition.
Hope you like it.

Midi Art, Piano ….4.7.2016

Piano Art

 Piano, MIDI and Modern Art…..

Recently self-studying music composition , I came across a music
composition MIDI  program that was free (YAHOO) and stand alone
executable, meaning it did not have to be installed on a operating
system.
If you’re into midi and music you’ll know how super convenient that
is to work anywhere, like a library, that will not run a portable
app DAW.

So throughout all of this , and to get to the “quik” as it’s said, I
posted text wise my somewhat vacuumed mental state of music
theory on a site. I was recommended to a course on Coursera, called
“write like Mozart”, and  it is helping make sense of the many
rules that are adhered  in a classical composition. This is a more real? tangible way than the theory alone .
THE LINKS TO BOTH MENTIONED ABOVE ARE LISTED :

Midi Stand Alone

But, back to the art  aspect of this post… the free software I
mentioned, also had a midi piano roll that colorized all of the midi
tracks in bright layout for easy editing.

That image of midi data somewhat reminded me of the landscape
portraits  of cities  at night. (popular in the
50’s-60’s.)
So, …what more symbolic than a  piano to round it all
off,  meaning the passions people live for , lost or gained
hopes , Grandeur or dulled  mechanism of emotions in  a
portrait-ed night city?

And so decided to work it as art image in adobe,
it is here .
Different kid of art, but it suggests the idea above. (to me alone maybe 
?)

But hope you like it, it (the altered midi data’s image) is from the previous piece from Mozart’s
