carmina charm #23

Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony? 

- Leonardo DaVinci

It's harmony that your soul and mind embraces again when listening to music. As sound surrounds you, only some melodies firmly resonate with you, get an immediate emotional response - whilst their approach is a smooth and soft one, whilst they slowly, carefully but steadily cling to you, these melodies eventually grab you with an intensity and force that overwhelms, that fully absorbs and stirs. It's these very melodies that are in chime with your mind and soul, it's music that leaves an imprint on your being and mesmerizes ... music that charms

carmina suavia #1 (covering episodes 1-36)

Being on a blogging hiatus doesn't necessarily mean it's time to be idle and let all things music take a back seat from now on only. On the contrary; even though carpe carmina won't be graced with any new music reviews until early august (except for monthly carmina charm articles), music lovers can still count on being introduced to plenty of amazing songs and artists for the months to come. How is this possible, you might ask yourself in astonishment ;) Well, aside from speaking my mind aloud when it comes to (indie) music, sharing my musical musings with you all in written form since 2013, I also come up with playlists for french radio RKC (my journey as a song selector started in 2014) - and it's about time to present these versatile collections of tracks to those especially of you who can't listen (mark the 'late hour' it airs) or haven't listened to any of them yet (next week sees the replay of playlist no. 37 already). So, plug your earphones in, turn the volumne up and listen to bi-weekly musical magnitude and magnificence right here, right now and/or live each tuesday evening on Radio Kaos Caribou (carmina suavia (translates as 'sweet/dulcet songs') is played from 10pm (UK time) onwards).
