Art and Music Laura Farre Rozada

In part 1 of Art and Music Journey in The Mind, it states: “Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for (art and music) play.” Well, along with part 2 (Laura Farre Rozada) on this subject, there is an experience that I describe as superb! You can believe there are others who feel the same way.

First, let’s talk more about the next music section of this article.

Art and Music Journey in the Mind Part 2

There are more musical instruments than most people can readily name — can we say music college majors? How many of us know in depth these categories of instruments?

  • Keyboard
  • Guitar
  • Percussion
  • Brass
  • Bowed strings
  • Woodwind

If you are like me, the first three in the list subconsciously come to mind, while the others require more thought. Depending on which maestro you are talking with and their interesting background culture, they will break the above 6 categories down on such a granular level that can leave your mind wondering for a bit.

Do you have a favorite instrument? Do you know how to play it? If you have a social media account, feel free to share this article with the instrument you play. Hey, some of you can share it on Instagram with your recital or band photos.

Did you know this about the pocbooks.com commentaries?

The musicians highlighted here show skills in voice, instruments, and production. Their style is who they are and yet; like with most humans, own diverse qualities to varying degrees that encompass colors of warmth and connection.

Poetry – Instruments of the Soul
There are times when a guitar just will not do.
Those moments may be many or be few.
The flute may get the attention.
After a while, there is something else that could be mentioned.
The piano may be suggested to be so bold.
However, it is the harp’s ability to soothe the soul.

Piano Masterworks Alive Laura Farre Rozada

What a superb performance! Have you ever said that after a show? Please allow me to share with you a performance myself and about fifty to eighty (the comfortable seating venue) others were able to enjoy!

The award-winning pianist and mathematician

Laura Farré Rozada

She completed her Master of Music degree as the Royal College of Music in London.

The audience that night was cordially — lively and quite a few of them specialized in fields of technical, medical and music. One composer I had an opportunity to chat with after the performance stated Laura is of high quality and a “virtuoso.”

In my brief meeting with her, I found her personality to be in the same expressions of her moving pianist skills displayed that evening. What do I mean? Allow me to explain from some of my notes I jotted down. Though I had planned on just taking it all in for an evening of food, wine, good conversation, and music; when Laura Farré Rozada started playing, I could not help but pick up my pocket sized square journal to take notes.

Laura Farré Rozada First Album

The French Reverie is Laura’s first solo album
From Spain, France, Germany, Canada, Bulgaria, and UK; her performances have been well received. Remember the virtuoso comment mentioned.

These sentiments are elaborated on here…

Musicology and Symmetry merges with Laura Farré Rozada

The pianist Laura merges sounds, beats, and music; I am not just talking as a figure of speech either. There were times when she tapped on the piano like they were bongo drums. If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I heard from three persons who get to enjoy the arts on this level every month of the year say, in so many words, she was a new experience for them.

What a classical experience!

Every keystroke pulsated through her face and cheeks. Laura’s fingers moves at the speed of twilight. Her lips curl to give the instruments voice.
As her hair joins the chorus, the flocks starts flowing to the unseen melody of the air!
Product of Culture

The above describes the opening of her performance’s first song.

Fractuals are Real in Her Music

A Professor in computer science while in conversation with me during intermission, stated: I started seeing fractals (Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales) in her music. Yet there is still quite something I’m still missing or looking for here.

My response with a lighthearted smile: “It is on a metaphysical and 5th dimension level.”

You could see the eureka light bulb come on in his head. “Yes, that is what I was looking for.”

Note in Details: I used the term metaphysical because I ascertained he would have more of a comprehensive view of what I was stating; rather than just saying my favorite word, “Spiritual.” The term 5th dimension also was referenced because from his expert analysis or opinion for some of his deeply contemplated expressions, you could discern he was in Quantum physics’ mode. To observe him during the performance before the intermission truly showed me the power and enlightening effect Laura’s music had on the audience.

More Listening Observations of this Pianist

Laura Farre Rozada allows every note, every vibration of molecules play out in parts of her composition.

See and hear her perform the music composition Sacrifice

There were moments when the anguish of this piece was on her face. The audience’s reaction had persons bowing their heads up and down not just in the rhythm; but yes, yes, I understand what your are saying. I feel what you are saying. One distinguish gentleman at certain pitches was placing his hands together… He closed his eyes… Was there dew drops of moisture on his eyelids?

Turning around to look at the audience, they were remembering family and events in their lives that meant a lot to them.

The Meaning We Realize

At moments, Laura would allow the last stroke of the keys fade away as she looks softly at them; it is though she is making love with music. Such a gift along with her excellent timing and precision, Laura Farre Rozada is a masterful pianist gem.

Paisley Park Happy Wednesday Throughout Your Day

Dear Perceptive Readers I wish you Happy Wednesday! It sometimes cracks me up to think about the way some people really get into saying it. You wonder just how many cups of coffee they ingested that morning; or took a shower in it!

During the autumn season, I shared some music and documentary videos about Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016). You can find a lot more interviews and how people feel about this talented musician who is no longer with us by visiting his official website and instagram accounts.

Prince’s Home

Paisley Park was the home and production studio for Prince. I just love how people knew it was Prince’s private sanctuary. It felt the same way for the ones who were able to visit there. There is an expression that can be applied in this home setting; “Paisley Park has Prince personality all over it” It means that if you have been enthralled with Prince’s music and style over the decades, then his private sanctuary will be no exception when you go to visit it.

What did you just say? Prince, Sanctuary, Home, Visit, What?!

Ah, yes, read on perceptive and music loving ones.

Paisley Park Tours and Tickets

I’m pleased to share with you on this Happy Wednesday there is a Paisley Park Experience! You can also get tickets for tours! The tours in 2019 are continuing throughout to November 30, 2019. Listed are choices for the experience.

The Paisley Park Experience

  • The VIP Experience
  • The Ultimate Experience
  • Paisley Park After Dark

The Beautiful Ones, Official Release Party November 1, 2019 is SOLD OUT

Prince’s Reflection

There is a lot of music Prince wrote that would take a long time to come for one’s who adore Prince’s compositions from the vault that he spent days at a time adding to it. A tune here, a beat there, and a masterpiece for the present.

It was in 2004, Prince expressed (blended) his love for Manuela Testolini, within such a masterpiece from memories of his mother and youth.

This tender hearted man chose Wendy Melvoin ( Revolution 1979 – 1986 Band member) to perform with him on the Tavis Smiley Show.

With that said, I will wish you Perceptive Readers a Paisley Park Happy Wednesday!

Art and Music Journey in The Mind

Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for ( art and music ) play.
 
Playing for children often involves high energy of imagination and talking to one another.
Talk about high energy, how about the teenagers? What does your daily routine look like?
In schools around the world, do they still teach art and music courses?
It is expected that when you join a band you will learn music. However, there was a time in some elementary and middle schools you had a certain part of class room time to learn about the basic skills of playing a flute.
The same went for art.
It was not until high school you had to start picking specialized courses if you ever wanted to exercise your creative flow in that way during school hours.
 
The above is a conversational piece with a coffee shop vibe. As you know, conversations by their very nature are meant to be enjoyed. Conversations do not turn into arguments when there is the spirit of enjoying each other’s company.
Some of us have and will continue to enjoy our discussions over art, literature, and music.

Did you know this about art?

There are three classical branches of Art

I hope these interesting facts will show you what is innately known. That the mind can imaginatively see art in everything and make it materialize literally overtime.
Observe the skills required to proficiently create the following branches of art on a professional or occupational level.

Paintings

Shown in office buildings, restaurants, and homes. The owners of these establishments are dressing up their walls to be inviting and warm to set the tone of the environment. The environment is just as important to understanding what the prospective and perceptive clients are looking for; as well as their personality input. For example, a farmer will probably pass over placing huge buildings to decorate the walls in his home. However, an entrepreneur with dreams of owning a building that size just might say “Exactly what I was looking for!” All the while, you will peak the farmer’s interest with people smiling, lakes, and camping scenes. Do you have such skills with a paint brush?

Sculptures

Are 3 dimensional carvings made into stone, wood, and casting metal. It takes a precision of accuracy and patience IMHO like no other in the arts. It is not an easy thing to recover from the mistakes made and can be quite costly. To this day, Michelangelo (see Sistine Chapel) , has to be one of the most renowned Italian sculptures of all time. Though he was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the Sistine Chapel, he made clear in history that he is a sculptor more than a painter. Imagine that? All the same, how did this man create all these stone gems to perfection? He possessed the skills of precision accuracy and patience. Do you have such skills?

Architecture

As referenced with the Sistine Chapel, the paintings on the ceiling walls, people travel from all over the world to see them; the architectural structure is no less aesthetically studied in history books from the renaissance period. Do you understand the art and engineering behind designing such buildings?

Then we have the animating performing arts! Often the ones who are not as skilled with stylus tools can find their place in music and theater. This is to make you aware everyone can find their place in exercising creativity. Have you experienced the joy of creating music or dance?

Speaking of Music

In part two of this article we will explore a couple of instruments and thoughts on music. It has been said more than once by this writer, music is one of life’s pleasures. Really, there are many you will tell you it makes life worth living through the good and tough times! Do you agree? I’m confident that the students visiting this website are in agreement with that last sentence.

So by all means please share this article on your social media accounts and with close friends.
I’m pleased you are enjoying the Product of Culture aka pocbooks.com website

A Poem with the flavor of art

mariedigbyart.com

Seeing beauty at times takes a trained eye.
It is more than just looking up at the sky.
Some can take the easy way out by repeating what everyone has said before.
But in order to be original the ability to see beauty has to go beyond the surface of the door.
The face is just a shield.
What’s inside happens to be the true yield.
It often takes insight and training to see beyond such borders to not go along with the established order.
You don’t have to wait until you are older.
Young in age too can find beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

She Picked Him A Sages Poetry

The Sage’s Poetry She Picked Him was created in the autumn of 2019. Feel free to contact the author, writer, and owner of this website with inquiries. If you are a new reader to this site, it may help to check out the sample guests blog response post first. Have a comforting day in your heart and mind. – J    

She Picked Him   A Sage’s Poetry

The night sky was just right
Every twinkling star was in sight
 
There was nothing more marvelous than turning from the sky to gaze upon eyes shinning with brilliance
 
Words in that moment needed not to be said.
 
For both their minds were now one outside and inside their heads
 
Why have I been granted this priceless and delicate treasure he asked.
 
Her poetic songs materialized ever more clearer and softly in a way human kind only knows at this precise rarity of moments.
 
She said
I picked you because just like the stars are light years in space
You cause me to feel them upon my face.
I picked you because in my universe I’ve tried so hard not to be entangled.
Yet your girded belt attracted me with strong bangels.
 
A rare find is someone who will say to me — I care and will still be there
 
It is a rare time to find my one kind
So I took a few of your bangels at the
risk of your wrath.
 
I hoped with all hope you would come back for me because I knew your heart was greater than that
 
As she spoke all these words with her mouth and eyes it reaffirmed what he already knew… It is an immeasurable gift a Grand One gave to have such a delicate priceless prize in heavenly dew.
 
The days are wonderful and carefree. But Ahh, with such an answer to an age old song we sing, He/She welcomes as One bring the night to me.

Revisiting an Archived excerpt:

It was about 5 years later. Lucas borrowed Kevin’s car to pick up groceries from the grocery store and parked it in an area where there was little lighting. As he backed, backed, backed; “CRUUUUNNNNNCCHH!” Oh, this did not sound good at all. How could that little fire hydrant cause so much harm to the car? Lucas was ashamed when he drove the car to Kevin’s house. As Kevin left the house and approached to examine the damage Lucas described to him, he said, “That’s okay. You forgave me when I needed you the most. I learned from you how to forgive.”

Kina Grannis Birds Singing

Then eureka! Kina Grannis Birds Shinning.
Kina seems to always be looking up to these delicate and strong creatures. Flying free in the air. Did you see the Songbird BTS video she made. Well, if not, here is one of the reasons for the post. It is to share Kina Grannis special Behind the Songs videos.

Behind The Songs Playlist

Before all the annual archiving, remember there are hundreds of more articles that are no longer on pocbooks.com. I used to write quite a bit on Kina Grannis’ career. In some ways, I looked at myself as a number 1 journalist (writer; as I continued to hone my skills) for this lady’s sweet bird song voice & musical interlude.

In addition, as you have heard me state this before:

“Over the years, this writer’s experience dealt in the relating of facts in real life scenarios and technology. When I placed the Product of Culture Brand aka POCBOOKS.com online back in 2010, it fulfilled my desire to share “Fictional Books of Another Kind.” Which allowed me to share the fun stories to the public that required you to think all the same.

In addition to the above, there are musicians mutually followed on social media at one time or another; in the process, I wrote articles and events about their music. It not only honed my skills as a writer but also as a podcaster. Still, the top reason is because I appreciate their God given talents. You will appreciate why Kina Grannis’ singing voice is appreciated by large audiences.”

Yes, this last decade has provided so much to my writing experience.
This, is my big thank you to Kina Grannis. I TOTALLY wish her all the best and warm regards; James (Author, Writer, and Owner of pocbooks.com)

Before You Read More…

I hope this feature you have just read provided value to you. This website also has a podcast called the Perceptive Readers. I read and comment on subjects like the one you read above.

From Mark Twain, Poetry, and talented musicians, the podcast relates commentary in a professional tone with personality (& flare at times). If you appreciate frank and candid feedback, this author will make solutions on (certain) topics clear. There are quite a few areas in life when it is up to the reader’s decision making experience; wouldn’t you agree? Hey, you know what works for YOU.

At least, that is, according to my research. By reading Commentary vs Journalism-What is the Difference, this article further informs you of my mode of operation with the podcast.  It is perceptive knowledge in conversation a lot of us have every day.

A COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Jasmine Thompson’s ‘Colour’ EP — Review & Commentary

Have you read the Exclusive | Billboard Jasmine Thompson’s Colour EP.

Have you listened to the Colour album? What about the music videos accompanying this album? Here on the Product of Culture website we will talk about all of it. First, I want to mention a Billboard Exclusive for you.

The Colour EP came out on April 5, 2019.

Billboard mentions all the instruments that makes this such a wonderful album! And it makes supporters of Jasmine feel proud of her writing skills in collaboration with the producer Eg White.

Adele and Sam Smith are additional notable names where he used his talents in album production.

Billboard gives us this bit of news about the song “Loyal,” How it is so heartfelt.
In this song we hear horns, percussion, and piano instruments.

As I have stated in the onset, and before in conversation, use of such instruments on the Colour EP gives a 1920s sound to it. I originally stated it sounds like the mid 1900s to present day.

In the next section I will talk on the subject of what this album will mean for some readers here including myself. This means I will be including statements from Billboard’s exclusive with Jasmine Thompson. What these songs mean for her as a singer and songwriter.

It will be made clear when I quote her interview and when I am in my assessment or commentary mode.

It is my hope you will enjoy the full production music and lyrics videos placed in this article. At the conclusion of this reading, you will also have links to Jasmine’s channels like Spotify, Official website, and stores.

There is also the professional manager of the Official Jasmine Thompson Fan Site. His name is Stefan. The links to all these social accounts will be in a well put together section near the end of this article.

Thank you for visiting and sharing the Product of Culture website with your friends and family! Shall we begin with The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson Commentary?

“Loyal” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Billboard Exclusive | Jasmine states:
Loyal was written in two parts. I was in a relationship that was great, so I decided to write a couple of verses about our story. Eg came up with the first round of chords and I said to him, “It would be incredible if we could get a sort of brassy sound for the song.” Eg, being Eg, pulled out a saxophone that I had never seen, and began to play the main line and put it through a vocoder…After 6 months, we got back in to finish the song. I had gotten out of the relationship and thought that we should add more to the end. Eg had added this beautiful piano breakdown to the song and I was so excited. I think it really reflected the change in perspective about my relationship. This song definitely opened doors for how we approached the production of the rest of the EP.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

People love people and people love animals. These are the sentient or conscious living creatures that need each other’s loyalty. Without it, where would we be? You see, being loyal causes us to stick with another through hard times even when they are:

Treating me like dirt!”

Have you ever heard some one say that about another person?

Then maybe you were the one who replied,

“Loyal like a dog.”

Present and past owners have experienced on days they were not feeling their best and could not walk their family pet, he/she would bring you the leash/collar and give a light bark to remind you it was time for that one mile walk or jog.

When you stayed in the bed your faithful companion licked you to see if that would work. Now, for some of your animal family connections, tell the rest of us if you experienced this:
“Angel, I’m really not feeling well today,” or “I’m sick.” The response to your feeling ill, a “Woof, with a whine”

Then, if you allowed it, your faithful companion jumped up on the bed to protect and comfort you all day. The missed walk forgotten and forgiveness granted all in less than one billionth of a second; if not that long.

Your inability to fulfill your responsibility to your family pet, did not stop he or she from fulfilling their loving role to you.

Jasmine Thompson is a sensitive soul. Just take a look at her real life thoughts on matters. In the song “loyal,” you know for sure that even though her relationship took the turn for the worst she would honor the “light” or all that was special about it. Indeed, precious about it.

In times past, this one writer, who sometimes talked with people having marital difficulties would say to each joined couple:

“What is it that made you fall in love with this person in the first place?” Sometimes it took more than a few minutes to receive the answer from both. But after some tears, well the ladies would cry, and the men just had dust in their eyes. Even though, we were in a class 1 clean area environment living room. Somehow the atom size particle in the room found its way into the men eyes.
After heartfelt reflection by the both, it served as a motivator for them to honor that period of light where they were “head over heels” for one another as a cultural idiom goes. Yes, “bent over backwards” to take care of one another with understanding.

“More” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Before the EP went to mix, we were a little bit unsure of how to finish this song and resolve it properly. When I was 16, I wrote a song that had a very similar concept, but I never did anything with it. It was just hidden in my voice memos for two to three years. I’ve always wanted to have a secret track, where you have to wait a while after the end of a song and then a whole new little song appears. We dropped the voice note at the end of the song and I crossed it off my bucket list.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

“More” is a song that sings about a range of adult feelings. Jasmine is at that age between 18 and 21 when they are doing more than thinking about the romance of life as a fairy tale, but how it requires hard work at times to learn the give and take of it all. How willing are each of us to approach a special personality in our life with all humility and say what is needed to help that person with whatever it is they sincerely need in life?
In this age we live in, often people have to talk so much about being tough in this “cruel world” that we lose a sensitivity to others needs and the humility to even give it.

How do you Perceptive Readers feel about this?
As teenagers grow up, there is still an importance to maintain a childlike attitude; not naivety, but maintain the humility to ask and be willing to do what will help your significant other. This helps in all relationships, but especially when two people already have quite a bit in common.
How much More will you give for what is needed?

Jasmine Thompson — more [Official Lyrics]

Here is the Live Band singing “More” in video number 2

PLACEHOLDER

“Some People” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

This song took us a really long time to finish production. It started off as a very chilled song, which is based on trying to make sure a friend knows that they are loved. Eg and I didn’t feel like we could nail the production on our own, so we started to look at bringing another producer in. [U.K. producers] MEZZ really helped us see the song in a different light.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

Just like what you have read in the ‘More’ section, Jasmine talks about trying to make sure a friend knows they are loved.

I love this song, I more than identify with what Jasmine shows us in this moving music video production of this song. Yes, it is making a powerful statement; yet with Jasmine’s voice, you hear a yearning and sincere desire to help.

Something to keep in mind when someone you meet has been betrayed; saying and trying to force them to trust you just because you smile or are now running in the same circle together is not going to cut it for everyone. It depends on how often they’ve been betrayed in life and the scar extent of the damage. A lot of people in positions of trust know this to be true. Positions of trust, meaning professional caregivers, in fields from the medical to the spiritual responsibilities.

It does not mean you have to be a professional in a position of trust to know or learn this as a friend. It means you do have a reference point of experience to call upon if it does not come naturally to you.

Jasmine said MEZZ really helped them to see the “Some People” song in a different light, and we certainly appreciate the insight MEZZ brought to the table. From group gatherings, to intimate conversations, that you and your friend both need. There is a time for everything. A time to be sociable in large crowds and a time for private conversation.
For the friend that has more of a quiet or introverted personality, he or she will often gain so much more a happy feeling of value from one true friend, then a hundred acquaintances. This too, sage (experienced) like persons in positions of trust know and understand this to be the case as well. Inasmuch, make application in the manner with a cause no further harm desire.
Remember there is a time for everything. As you find the balance, more than one friend will find your presence a blessing, as the cultural expressions goes which is based in principle.

“Take Care” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

Normally, verse melodies start lower, so you don’t give away the lift of the chorus. But on this day, I really wanted to try something new and use my falsetto more. The original demo was a lot higher, so it all sounded very petite and floaty. This song was very close to not being on the EP…We finished this song on the night before going to mix. It was so nerve wracking, I have never been so excited and stressed at the same time while trying to finish this song before the deadline. It felt so good, going home at 2:00 a.m. after spending the whole day trying to solve the puzzle.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

I found it interesting that “Take Care” almost did not make it on the EP. Do you hear the anguish is Jasmine’s voice singing this song? Let me tell you, with one more cultural expression, “We need to wrap that up” tone and singing style “and sell it in a bottle” so everyone can sing like that. You can be sure I am chuckling while saying this to others.
I one time, oh I mean my friend, tried to hit a note like Jasmine, and let me tell you, even the lions at the zoo ran into their cages.

The song, Take Care, shows the depth of a woman’s love. Make no mistake about it, over the years, you heard stated here about the marvelous ways we are created. Women have been bestowed with talents and insights that deepen the more they love you. Not that men don’t possess these qualities, because they most certainly do. However, from an early age you will see the female gender have or develop these sensitive and loyal qualities at a faster pace.

It is the nurturing mindset. This is why when you hear Jasmine sing:

Take care please remember There’s an always open door Come back to me Come back to me Take care go and be that That stupid man I know Give your love away Then come back for me

A lot of men, have heard similar sentiments. That is; the mental challenge part Jasmine is referencing.
Yes, some men find out the first year of marriage what a mental challenge it is by their mature wife! Though I am making light-hearted statements about the first year of couples, there are hurtful situations that happen in some relationships where the anguish that Jasmine is able to place in this song is heard from either one or both mates.

Here is the point. A lot of women inner desire is to still reconcile if the man’s desire is there as well. Yet, as one family member may say, “But you better straighten up and fly right.”

Take care (Official Live video)

“Amen” — The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

This song is probably two years old, or more. We wrote this song with so much passion and it was a very emotional day. [The] original demo was a lot more aggressive and it kind of blew your ears off, so when we had the week to finish of production, we tried to see how else we could decorate the song. It had always been a very negative and melancholic song, but that week, something new had clicked into place. I could suddenly hear a happier, more jumpy version. We started experimenting with table harps and different melody lines and it all fell into place.

Perceptive Readers & Music Lovers Thoughts

You know what? I love Jasmine’s new album; however, I love, love, this song. Really, then, I want to know how can I buy the rights to this song, like the way I purchased the COLOUR EP on the Apple store.
Okay, this may be a little too much. Still, I used a form of hyperbole to express just how much I like this song. One day, I may be able to hit the Amen note, I sure say it enough.

And those horns!

Amen, so be it, let it be written and let it be done. It is my whole mind’s agreement with heart strings pulled, this song and the whole EP shows us that Jasmine’s voice has a special quality of sound. Her writing utilizes her ability to share her story to us in ways we most certainly can relate, no matter what the year we were born in that makes us an adult with a childlike innocence (without naivety) in age.

Concluding Thoughts- The COLOUR of Jasmine Thompson

In conclusion, I just want to share this is the second EP I have purchased of Jasmine’s craft. Even though she is a singer, in my mind, I know she can out marvelous feats with her voice. It is a beautiful thing to sooth someone with healing words and cause people to feel happy with the tongue period.
Another one of life’s gifts.

I want to once again thank the Jasmine Official Fanpage for the use of the images on the Product of Culture website over the past couple of years.

The same goes for her managers, mother(father) and of course Jasmine.

Always wishing the best for them, and you Perceptive Readers, and music lovers. — Kind regards
