Musica Monday

How many people like stories? What do you consider a story? What can music do with stories? What if we take a story and put it to music? I mean it has been done before and it will be done again, no doubt there! Stories are what make up our culture and our lives, when we were little we would use stories to learn about our lives

Here's a new example of a story telling cd that a friend introduced me to a few months ago. The artist/producer is L'Orange, who draws inspiration from the 1920s-1950s. All his music truly incorporates the genre of the film noir. His newest album is entitled The Mad Writer, and you can listen to it for free, that's right, FREE, online on his! Make sure you start at the beginning of the list of songs thought!

Another example of stories being put to music are ballads. Modern day ballads tend to be put together with music videos that tell a story through them. One of my favorite ballads is called Ballad of a Man and his Sorrow by KOBE. Enjoy!!
