"Out of the Mist", Hidden Sky, by Jami Sieber
Few words are needed.
the base line: hearts beating, mine and hers, mine and yours
staccato harmonics on top
the cello and voice – together: a sad calling melody
calling me to follow – from where? to where? I will go no matter where; it has already taken me
sliding up and down
the voice and the cello: the two of them in perfect unison; together speaking a language I cannot translate but can understand. how? with my soul? my heart? with all of the millions of nerve endings in my body?
waltz tempo – young child – in my mother's arms, back and forth – safe – beauty – perfection
the composer's gift – her musical skill, creativity, talent
the composition: melody, timing, dynamic contrast, empty space, precision, perfection.
beauty expressed but inexpressible
the entire performance - cello, guitar, and voice
so little produces so much
the mystery of being human
