Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.
Last week urban fantasy writer A.C. Ruttan shared a playlist from her creative process as she wrote Incarnate.
This week, I'll take you inside some of the inspiration for my Scorpius serial - his boyhood backstory - as well as the adult storyline for which I received requests at the writers' conference. Lots of Scorpius on the brain, these days, from two age ranges.
1 - Stabat Mater by Vivaldi - Philippe Jaroussky
The opening section is my favorite part (first 2 minutes.)
2 - La Stravaganza Concerto 6 in G minor by Vivaldi - Sir Neville Marriner, The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields
The section that begins at the 2:50 mark is the part that belongs to my Scorpius tale.
3 - Recercada No. 1 by Diego Ortiz - Flanders Recorder Quartet
4 - Mandolin Music for Renaissance Faires - Allan and Alexandra Alexander
5 - Credo from Missa da Pacem by Jacobus de Kerle - Paul van Nevel, Huelgas Ensemble
An added bonus track:
Last weekend I shot some footage for my uncle, who played a gig at an art gallery with my aunt. Here's the video of one of their repertoire, Wave by Antonio Carlos Jobim. In the video you'll see kids playing on an art piece down at the Halifax waterfront entitled Wave.
The footage I shot was the musical performance and my uncle's art pieces on display at the gallery, the stuff outside the gallery, etc.
Uncle Charlie added other footage he'd shot of the waterfront area and Halifax Harbour.
