Category: On the Flight

19: On the Flight

One of the ways I find music that I like is during flights. Yes, flights… You know, airplanes and things. I sit for hours cramped like a sardine in a narrow seat. So I try to break the boredom. I go methodically through the music, offered on the aircraft’s entertainment system. I find something I like, I make a note and later explore it more, and if I still like it, I add it to my collection.

Obviously, there is nothing that really connects between the pieces in the posts in this category other than I found them while “on the flight”. But I still want to share them. So this category will be used to just share things I like without any connecting theme – just random collections of pieces. And even though this category is called “On the Flight”, it will also include things that I found not while flying – just anything random that I like and want to throw out there.

Enjoy.

 

22: Some Recent Discoveries

Been busy lately and didn’t have time to write here. Still busy. So I will just throw in a short, random collection of music pieces I discovered lately (although some of them are not new at all). The two things they have in common are:

  • I like them (duh).
  • I just came across these pieces by chance (hence they are in the “On the Fly” category).

I hope you’ll enjoy too.

In a previous post, I discussed my affection for A Cappella music. So here is another one that I found recently. Again, this piece mixes dance-electronics with Gregorian chanting – one of my fav styles: Magna Canta by Agnus Dei:

The next song, I’m not sure how to describe, but I like it. So here it is: Animal Collective in My Girls:

Well, a nice clip if nothing else 😉

My friend, Uri introduced me to Philip Glass. Not sure how I missed him before, but I did. I found a lot of his music that I like a lot. He deserve a whole dedicated post (heck, a whole blog), but here at least is one of the pieces I like best –  Metamorphosis:

In a previous post (The Lost Memorial), I discussed the piece Memorial by Michael Nyman. I just found out lately that both Glass and Nyman are prominent musicians in the Minimalist genre. I guess I like minimalist.
