Sunday’s Song: Music that is more than it seems…Dynamite!

Today is my last day at the 2013 eWomen Network’s annual conference in Dallas, Texas.  It has been a rich week, filled with memorable lessons, experiences and of course, people! One of the main stage speakers this year was David Wood.  His presentation addressed the truth that so many of us are living less than our best lives.  On a scale of 1 to 10, many will state that they are 6 or 7 and remain there.  His message is to go for the 10! That certainly resonates with me and I know with you as well.

In his presentation, he used the video and music that is now Sunday’s Song.  It took a bit for me to find it! But it was worth it because the story of the video is even more terrific! The song is Taio Cruz’ Dynamite.  It would appear that the San Francisco symphony is doing a cover of that song.  But in fact, an extraordinary musician using Garritan Personal Orchestra sound banks and Sonar X1 created this marvelous cover. And then an extraordinary producer synchronized a video of the San Francisco orchestra playing Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphonie and Stravinski’s Rite of Spring.  The result: a musical experience that is so much more than it seems.

David’s message using this was that we are not an instrument – we are the orchestra. And we need to play fully.

But there is another message here as well: “Eyes that look are common, eyes that see are rare.” (J. Oswald Sanders)

And I take both of those messages with me from this conference into the coming weeks.  Let’s each play fully and see!
