I Fell In LOVE with Her Performances - HYPNOTIC

in hypnotic •  2 years ago  (edited)

Being quiet for almost two weeks on the music front (other then my posts about music and Steemit), I picked an artist from my favourite list, different to what you are used to I share. The least electronic artist you can imagine; Meaning her work is 100% analogue! It is an artist you would not encounter on some kind of dance or even music/art festival.

I discovered her through some television program, aired at hours almost nobody watches television, Sunday early morning. In case you don't know her, you will quickly find out - by touching the play buttons below - her music genre is classical! Opera style to be more exact. Although I don't really know the opera genre - so I cannot tell how opera the recording is - I fell in love with her performance when this TV program showed a recording. Well, actually, it was a live performance in the 'studio'; In our music theatre "Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ" in Amsterdam.

The first recording below, is another version of the performance I fell in love with! Compared to her latest album, this piece is to me, more hypnotic; Somehow it gets into my mind in such a way it brings me in a kind of trance. Well, not really into a deep trance, but still, somehow I start floating quite easily through imaginary places. A wonderful experience!

Recently I discovered her latest album "Crazy Girl Crazy" received a Grammy - and a whole bunch of other nominations and awards. WOW! A YouTube playlist including all tracks, I included in the post below as well.

Her vocal control is great! And the quality is just beautiful... She makes singing look effortless (though it's definitely not).

You got that right! :)
