It is already way too long since our last article in our "Curator's Choice" series. We've seen quite a few enjoyable and good posts in last weeks.

From all the post IINC voted for, I made a selection of six posts I like to bring to your attention. All posts are quite different, but all are special, with high quality and great content! Topics ranges from a music induced travelling adventure, an immensely in-depth album review, a tribute to Jim Henson, to John Williams, an Austrian Composer and a instrument builder.

If you will, engage with the author of the posts to your liking. I'm sure the authors don't mind a shout out :)

I wish you lots of reading pleasure!

"Cataracts" by Levi the Poet: An Album Review

by @caleblailmusik

An impressive detailed review of the album "Cataracts" by Levi the Poet. The user writes passionately, and takes us on a journey through his/her thoughts, per track! I didn't count the amount of words, but I'll not be surprised if this surpasses a thousand. Although it's length, the post is far from boring. The post is actually very engaging!

"The Rainbow Connection" (Cover) It is probably magic. Thank you letter/tribute to JIM HENSON

by @yidneth

As the title suggests, this is a - massive - post about one of the idols "Jim Henson" of the writer. She not only tells us what and why she has this amazing appreciation for Jim Henson, tells us about his creations, gives us more about Jim himself, but also includes one of her cover songs created as a tribute to Jim Henson. A bit sweet song, but for sure a very professional creation, with a role for Kermit the Frog in the video!

1000 Gesichter der Inspiration: #001 Günther Fiala | Musicalkomponist

by @theodora.austria

Another amazing post! This one is about Günther Fiala, a composer, pianist and singer from Austria. The writer is inspired by Günther and promises us to bring more similar post to us and our community. She interviewed Günther; The result we can read in this post. Some good questions, with great responses, and overall super writing! In case you are into Musicals, this post is a MUST READ.

Note: the post is written in the German language.

Episode 9 Will Be Williams' Last. Did Disney Put Him Off?

by @greatestjourney

This user must be a Star Wars fan and even more a John Williams fan, the guy known for his soundtrack of many famous movies. Apparently John Williams is contracted for the next Star Wars movie, episode 9. We can read the personal opinions of the user about Williams, Star Wars and as a bonus we can listen to some of the music mister Williams composed for earlier Star Wars movies.

I advise to scroll down to the bottom of the post immediately after opening it. Then hit the play button of one of the tracks, and start reading from the top. Enjoy the music and the read!

Making of - Upcycled Oilcan Mandola

by @dose-instruments

We have a few music instrument builders in our community. This user is one of them. I always have pleasure reading posts giving us an insight in how an instrument is created, from scratch to finished version.

This post is more a photographic story. I would have loved to see a bit more supporting stories included in the post, but even without an extensive writeup, I like the post as it is. Maybe because the post is quite different to so many other posts about music? For sure, this topic is not covered a lot in our community which makes this post special.
