I love a good violin and piano accompaniment!
My favorite instrument is the violin for its ability to move just like the voice- it’s fluid and melodic by nature! Classical music helps quiet the mind and bring the spirit to a place of peace, alleviating pain in the process. Part of the reason I believe in music is because of its therapeutic properties- it’s like a medicinal herb in intangible, sound-sense form! More info on Farewell below (it’s available for pre-order on Bandcamp now)!
Farewell is early works of Taiwanese female fronted chamber ensemble Cicada who played with Olafur Arnalds, Rachel Grimes, Balmorhea.
Farewell described how someone who went through the cycle of a relationship. It’s about breakup, facing the future alone and also reveals the teenage girls inside us. Cicada selected 14 songs from Over the Sea /Under the Water, Pieces and Let’s Go with the new recording and production, together they told a story.
