tadas maksimovas spins his hair into the playable strings of a violin

london-based artist tadas maksimovas has used his hair as the medium in a performance-cum-instrumental project, which saw his longs locks transformed into the fragile strings of a violin. created for street musician’s day — an annual music event initiated by lithuanian musician and actor andrius mamontovas — the experimental piece demonstrates that even the most ambiguous materials can be transformed into an object of alternative use. twisting and gluing maksimovas’ lengthily strands of hair into tightly spun fibers, the fine threads were then fixed to the wooden violin, positioned along the length of the instrument, and  experimentaled. the result is a musical piece, entirely performed through the cooperation of artist and musician.

So I sent 4 submissions to CatsThatLookLikeComposers two weeks ago, and they never got published.  I’m not sure if that blog even takes submissions.  Anyway, I’ve decided just to post my submissions here to make myself feel better.

Female Composers of the Romantic Era:
The Male Composers stole the spotlight but the females were just as talented

When you hear about composers from the Romantic era or earlier, many people automatically assume that they are learning about a male, because they dominated the industry in an era where a woman’s place was not in the spotlight. Contrary to what many people believe, there are some extraordinarily talented female composers that called the Romantic era home, and it is high time that these exceedingly gifted composers take their rightful place in the spotlight. Here is a look at the lives and achievements of three brilliant female composers of the Romantic era.

Josephine Lang

One of the most famous female composers of the Romantic era was Josephine Lang. Born in 1815, Lang was born into a most musical family. Her mother was a soprano, her grandmother a coloratura soprano, her father a music director, and several aunts who each possessed musical ability. She was educated in Munich and composed many brilliant pieces of music. Some of her best works include “Erinnerung,” “Der Winter,” and “Herbst Gefuhl.”

Clara Wieck Schumann

Another exception female composer of the Romantic era is Clara Wieck Schumann. Born in 1819 to Friedrich Wieck, a piano company owner, and Marianne Tromlitz, a soprano vocalist, Clara Wieck Schumann had music flowing in her veins from birth. At a very young age, she was recognized by other famous composers as a tremendously gifted child prodigy. Some of her admirers include Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Nicolo Paganini and others. Some of her best works include “Nocturno, Op. 6, No. 2,” “Tre Romances, Op. 11,” and “Souvenir de Vienne, Op. 9.”

Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel

Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel has not received even a sliver of the praise she deserves as a composer of the Romantic era. Born in 1805, she is the sister of Felix Mendelssohn and showed outstanding musical skill and talent as a child prodigy. History lends the story that at the age of 13, Fanny played all 24 pieces from Bach’s “Well-Tempered Clavier” by memory alone. Fanny would grow into a tremendous composer of the age whose compositions resounded with passion and intensity. Some of her best works include “Trio in D Minor,” “Melodie, Op. 4 No. 2,” and “Aus Meinen Tranen.” [x]

Play a C next to a C# and it’ll probably sound horrible to you. You might even call it wrong or bad. The sound goes to war with itself. It clashes. But take the C up an octave, and it becomes a major seventh. One of the most beautiful chords. It’s almost too nice sounding. When we see something bad or awful, maybe we’re just looking at in the wrong octave. We just need to change our perspective a little. Countries all over the world build bombs with the goal of hurting people, instilling fear, and killing, to prove a point. To try and change your perspective about an idea. Governments everywhere even bless their bombs for this purpose. Maybe we need a different kind of bomb. Maybe a bomb that makes people love you. Maybe a cupid bomb. I believe we already have it, and it’s called music. Every country has their own version of it and it works. It changes your viewpoint by bringing each other together. And you don’t even have to know a thing about it to get it. And in the end maybe all you really did was change the octave. Music is a language, a lifestyle, and it could just save the world.
