Oceans Life Music
Largo quasi Allegretto, ~7 minutes
The members of this ensemble are dolphins, sea-lions, beluga whales, flamingoes and water sounds from those respective habitats. Plus the symphony orchestra, and rivers.
This is the complete 1st movement of the Symphony. Like the others it's also its own tone-poem.
As a child
Dancing with the ocean
The ocean is a child
And it dances
The child matures?
The ocean remains a child
Adagio, ~14 minutes
In this movement we hear waves hitting the coast line and ebb/flood on sand- and rockbeaches. With them we hear crickets, seagulls, birds at a stream, a village fountain and shimmering seas.
This is the entire 2nd movement, performed by those waves and a Symphony Orchestra.
The waves dance
They dance the oceans dance
The light reflects in the waves
The sea reflects the sunrays and the light
Light itself is dancing
We see reflections...
... as the sea decides to pass them on to us
... as the waves decide to pass them on to us
The reflections of the waves
Zarabanda, ~12 minutes
This is more of a duet perhaps, the symphony orchestra with humpback whales. And water sounds from the humpbacks' habitat.
It is now presented here, for the first time, in its entirety.
Symphonic Whale Song
Poetry in a foreign, unknown language
Unearthly, soulful tones
Outlandish, mysterious words
Aquatic, oceanic poetry sung by
Singing grandiose graces of the oceans
Sung from out of the deep sea
Concealed, deep sea, symphony
Andante and Caccia, 16 1/2 minutes
In these two movements the symphony orchestra is accompanying frogs and hippo's, with porpoise and other marine flora and fauna also assisting. The two movements flow attacca one into the other, without pause.
There is a rhythm in the oceans
Frogs, hippo's, the waves
All have their own rhythms
All blend together
The rhythms joyfully dancing in the oceans
Ocean rhythm, like breathing
Frog croaking the beat
The hippo's laugh in a constant rallentando
They slow down a little all the time!
The waves speed up and slow down, ever changing and ever the same
Dancing in joy
Breathing the meditation of Mother Earth?
Earthbound longing for the deep
A symphony to breathe in their pace
To pace with them
To wave with the storms
To sink down in myself and
To be the poetry, the meditation
To learn to breathe
Moving gently, dancing and breathing, in the music
Moving with the seaweed, overwhelmed
Moving with the seagrass meadows
Delighted to be overwhelmed
The waters are The Rhythm
I am in The Rhythm
The waters are in The Rhythm
All is rhythm
All is music
All is breath
Breath and laughter
Laughing is breathing, the hippo's delightful laughter
Breath is life
