Forum name: Axver



Life In One Chord

The harsh Cold War reality has been replaced by the fearful and corrupt War On Terror reality. In a bleak world of monotonous life in a rundown post-Soviet city, one man pours his soul into his guitar to avoid being trampled down and forgotten. It leads him into conflict: with the obstinate music industry, with the attitudes of friends and lovers, with the pressures of travel. But most importantly, it leads to conflict with the monolithic and monotonous reality and to a discovery of hope.

Headphones are recommended for best effect. Cover credit goes to LemonMacPhisto.

Title: Peace

I'm not a religious person, but there are occasions where I feel very spiritual: seeing beautiful views in nature, and singing beautiful music in a choir. Music such as the Faure Requiem and Biebl's "Ave Maria" can move me to tears with its sheer beauty. I hear things like that and am convinced there is a god. (What a dichotomy - how can god inspire such violence and hatred in the world, but also inspire such beauty and reverence?)

I probably don't listen to as much classical music as other former music majors, but most of the classical music I do lean toward is of the choral variety. Aside from the occasional Mozart Requiem track or an opera bit I've heard here, I think most of the classical tunes that have landed in these competitions have been of the symphonic kind; I wanted to use a few choral pieces. But as you can see, it's not all classical music. I chose songs to keep the gentle mood going, and tried to choose songs that flowed together well.

So relax and listen. Let the music bring you to a peaceful place. And if you find yourself moved by any of the pieces, I shall share my box of tissues with you.

1. Antonio Vivaldi (composer) - "Nulla In Mundo Pax Sincera" - Shine Soundtrack (4:39)
2. Boston Pops Orchestra (composer: Camille Saint-Saens) - "The Swan (From Carnival of the Animals)" - Out Classics (2:54)
3. Yo-Yo Ma (composer: J.S. Bach) - "Cello Suite #3 in C, BWV 1009 4. Sarabande" - The Cello Suites: Inspired by Bach (4:46)
4. Alison Krauss - "You Will Be My Ain True Love" - Cold Mountain Soundtrack (2:31)
5. Daniel Lanois - "Ice" - Acadie (4:26)
6. Sting - "Saint Agnes and the Burning Train" - The Soul Cages (2:43)
7. Joni Mitchell - "Urge For Going" - Hits (5:05)
8. Sufjan Stevens - "John Wayne Gacy, Jr." - Come On Feel the Illinoise! (3:19)
9. Sia - "Breathe Me" - Colour the Small One (4:34)
10. Hem - "Half Acre" - Rabbit Songs (3:23)
11. Chicago - "Wishing You Were Here" - The Very Best of Chicago: Only the Beginning (4:35)
12. Rufus Wainwright - "Greek Song" - Poses (3:56)
13. Caetano Veloso and Gal Costa - "Baby" - Meu Nome E Gal (3:32)
14. Deep Forest - "Sweet Lullaby" - Deep Forest (3:55)
15. The Beatles - "Because" - Love (2:44)
16. The King's Singers - "MLK" - Good Vibrations (2:05)
17. Boston Symphony Orchestra (composer: Gabriel Faure) - "Requiem, Op. 48: In Paradisum" - Faure: Requiem (3:21)
18. Chanticleer (composer: Franz Biebl) - "Ave Maria" - Our Heart's Joy: A Chanticleer Christmas (7:40)

Total Runtime: 1:10:08

Have fun!

I loved Corianderstem's playlist but Axver's is just a little better. Good luck to the both of you!

What the hell? I did not expect to be leading this round at all. 5-3 at the moment.
