Piano notes made visible using the CymaScope instrument. "I have always been fascinated with the translation of that which is invisible, into something visible that individuals can relate to, in particular, the representation of sound through color and geometric form. I saw the use of cymatic technology as one method of such representation and a unique and compelling way of educating individuals about the link between sound, colour, and geometric form." - Shannon Novak"Vibration underpins all matter in the universe. No matter can exist without sound and vibration."[Learn more at cymascope.com]

Tori Amos - Star Whisperer

Tori Amos, "Star Whisperer" live on Radio 3, Poland (October 12, 2011). An amazing performance!

lyrics:

Lost star whisperer
where
where
where have you gone?
Lost star whisperer
will your Cloud Riders come?
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life

Night warns of an eastern threat
North calls reinforcements from the west
Lost all reason guarded by the wise
sing to life the Seven Lords of Time

Lost star whisperer
send for your Cloud Riders to come
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life

then I heard you scream
from the other side of the mountain
I saw a “you” I didn’t want to see
I heard you scream
from the other side of the mountain

[musical break]

Then I heard you scream
from the other side of the mountain
you saw a “me” I didn’t want to see
I heard you scream
from the other side of the mountain

Lost star whisperer
where
where
where have you gone?

Forged of fire and song
you warn Hate shadows Love
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life
