Impressionist-music

tag yourself as movements in classical music
  • Medieval: often ignored, shy, secretly gay, likes to stay in the same place all the time, dreams of being a monk
  • Renaissance: loves to dance, likes fancy things (but not too fancy), nobody else could pick them out in a crowd but everyone is friendly to them
  • Baroque: very particular about everything, draws immensely detailed doodles, gets super side-tracked on pointless tangents, everyone's distracted dad friend
  • Classical: very neat bedroom, makes bad puns constantly, has a 9-5 job, everyone's helpful but slightly exasperated mom friend
  • Romantic: can never make up their mind about anything, gets shivers when they go to art museums, cries a lot (and you'll know about it), sad bisexual (TM)
  • Impressionist: super gay, loves music that isn't in their native language, cries easily, just wants to have a good time
  • Early Modernist: just like Romantic but also does drugs and is afraid of but also super interested in sex
  • Serialist: angry at everything, "you don't understand my torment", probably a communist
  • Neoclassical: wants to be just like classical but has never gone to sleep before 1AM, keeps a very neat bedroom except for a single massive pile of clothes in the closet they refuse to acknowledge, occasionally steals Renaissance's hoodies
  • Total Serialist: 500% angrier than serialist and proud of it, has never had fun, has probably killed someone
  • Academic Avant-Garde: has never done the same thing twice, trusts nobody else, has an on-again-off-again relationship with total serialism
  • Minimalism: loves technology, still wears Google Glass and the Apple Watch, meditates for fun, trying to learn Hindi (and horribly failing), often incomprehensible to everyone else but is actually super friendly
  • Polystylism: originator of the term "pastel grunge", wears immensely clashing outfits, steals everyone's looks, memes

Maurice Ravel - Pavane for A Dead Princess

Pavane pour une infante défunte

Works of art make rules; rules do not make works of art.
—  Claude Debussy (French Composer 1862-1918, one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music)
Need more blogs to follow

Dashboard’s a bit empty. I might need to add more taste to my dashboard.

I’m looking for blogs to follow so I can fill up some contents. 

Reblog if you post one of the following:

  • ABBA
  • Anni-Frid “Frida” Lyngstad
  • [Classic] Doctor Who
  • Olivia Newton-John
  • Elisabeth Sladen | Sarah Jane Smith
  • 1960s-1980s contents, it doesn’t matter.
  • Music, obviously, preferably 1930s-1990s.
  • Monty Python’s Flying Circus
  • Progressive rock
  • Kate Bush [yes, I’m serious]
  • Classical music
  • You’ve been waiting for this: The Beatles
  • Genesis [band]
  • English comedies
  • Cream [band] (and other related bands, e.g. Traffic, either way)
  • Food.
  • Fried chicken [Disregard that, it was a mistake I made]

Any help is appreciated! You don’t have to have all of this in your blog. As long as you have one of these, you’re fine. I’ll just check out your blog after you reblog, and then determine if I will follow you. :-)

(He dropped his sheet music.)
This is the Jotaro Kujo of Pt8’s Morioh, a traveling jazz musician like his father. Enjoying the relative peacefulness of the city while on tour, Jotaro came back for a vacation. Except it’s not quite the same as last time.
While trying to find a way to the beach, he wandered too close to the wall eyes and got a strange wound, eventually obtaining a Stand.
Jotaro himself is actually shy, scared quite easily, and would rather not hurt anyone or anything if he can avoid it. (Thankfully his Stand doesn’t really have a destructive ability.) The only time he really expresses himself is when he’s sitting in front of a piano. Despite being a jazz musician he prefers classical and especially loves impressionist music.
His hobbies include reading about botany, rock collecting, and hiking. Loves chocolate too much for his own good. Gets along really well with kids, but not so much with older women.
If he’s not at a piano, then he’s meandering around Morioh or sitting somewhere nearby the ocean.

Debussy - Prèludes

Ok, yes, I know I shared just the first prelude only yesterday, but I have to admit: this is one of those big collections that I had yet to get to. Now, I’m listening through an older recording by Walter Gieseking, and this has been quite the journey through wild waters. Refreshing, crisp, bright, some familiarity here and there, wonderful harmonic choices, magic…I could go on. While I could just pick my personal favorites of the set and share several of them, and even though Debussy never indicated that these pieces were meant to be played as a whole set, I’m sharing the complete preludes anyway. If you haven’t heard these before, you’re in for a treat.
