I am the Universe. Song. Video. Art. Design.

in creativecoin •  last month  (edited)

I am you, you are me. we are everyone.

I am, you are, we are the Universe,
I am, you are, we are the Sun,
I am, you are, we are:
The Infinite.

I am the Universe.

I am the Universe is a Folk: Celtic: Pop single track that has recently been released by CDBaby.

This chant-like song was created by Australian singer/songwriter, Sylvia Forest with Pete Dawes on cello and co-created with sound artist Stewart Havill.

Once again Sylvia's message: I am you, you are me, we are everyone is so very positive and joyous.

This song explores the notion of our connection to all life, with the rhythm evoking an almost trance–like energy in which we might find ourselves in a dancing meditation, something akin to that of the whirling dervishes. ~Sylvia Forest.

Lyrics of I am the Universe.

All the quotes in this article have been taken from the Lyrics of I am the Universe.

About the image.

As the cover design for I am the Universe, Sylvia wanted to use a slightly imperfect dandelion, with just a few individual seeds breaking away and about to fly, to represent the Universe being present in the simplest of nature's forms: Both the perfect and imperfect.

I searched everywhere in our garden to see if any dandelions had survived the high winds we'd experienced in Sydney over the previous week. All I could find were lots of seedless seedheads.



I am, you are, we are the Ocean,
I am, you are, we are the Sky,
I am, you are, we are:
The Mountains.


Original Image.

Fortunately, I remembered that I'd taken some photographs of dandelions a few years ago and even though they'd been taken with a very inexpensive little camera, the detail of all the little parachutes in this image was quite remarkable.

The image was edited and cropped into a square format as required by CDBaby.



I am, you are, we are the Children,
I am, you are, we are the Old,
I am, you are, we are:
The Nobodies.

We all have a story that longs to be told.

Slightly Digitized.

The image was slightly stylized with the Deep Dream Generator using the same dandelion image for both the Base and Style Image: This resulted in the shapes becoming more geometric with lovely areas of flat colour.

The image was resized to 3000 x 3000 pix, as required by CDBaby.



I am, you are, we are the Ordinary,
I am, you are, we are the Strange,
I am, you are, we are:
The Extraordinary.

We all have our roles, we all play this game.

Text Added.

The text I Am the Universe was added to the design using CANVA

The finished image was sent to Sylvia who uploaded it to her CDBaby website.



I am, you are, we are the Insects,
I am, you are, we are the Birds,
I am, you are, we are:
The Animals.

We all need each other, we all need this Earth.

After listening to the music, I can see why she wanted a dandelion to represent the Universe (as well as the song). Beautiful work, @allyinspirit and thanks for putting, "I am the Universe" on my radar. It's such a wonderfully positive and energetic melody!

Such a pleasure to introduce you to Sylvia's song and music. I've been loving her chant-like songs. And this one, in particular, is very special I feel.

All the voices are her own ~ Layer upon layer to get the fullness of sound. She works with one of the best sound production artists in Sydney, to arrive at such a rich musical/pulse background.

But I can imagine a really large group of people singing this song ~ All connected to the spirit of being one.

Have the most BeautyFull week April ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎


I have but a few words. Magical, Transcending, and feeling the Oneness through my heart Chakra. Wow!!!!

Such beautiful words from you now Wanda. Thanks so much. I'll pass them on to Sylvia.

I can imagine this song being sung, live by hundreds of people, from all over the world. Sylvia struggles to market her music, but I can still imagine this happening. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎


Super inspired again.

The thumbnail image was needed for CDBaby, so there wasn't a lot of time to come up with a design for it. But once we decided on going with the dandelion, the rest fell into place so easily.

I'd like to make a video now, inspired by the lyrics of this song. It sure is an inspiring and very catchy song and I'm so pleased you resonate with it Sukhasanasister. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎


Really uplifting song and the dandelion such a strong symbol for universal ideas:)

So pleased that Sylvia's song spoke to you George. Love the symbolism of the many parts contributing to the whole. The idea of how we can all contribute, in our diversity, to the completeness of life is one that is especially meaningful for this time. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

It's wonderful to feel that desire to dance when you hear music that stirs the spirit. I find that this song is so conducive to giving yourself to its pulse and flow. Happy dancing Kimberly. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎


Yes, happy dancing to you too!

Good day for dancing Kimberly ~ Looking out the window seeing all the flowers in my garden revitalized, dancing in the Spring rain. ♥︎♥︎⚖️♥︎♥︎

Yes! This is so beautiful! So hypnotic, pulling you in the true meaning of being one. What a lovely way to start off my day!
