Unity. This is the topic for week 51, of this weekly live music event, Hive Open Mic. Being united with someone is, of course, very important in our personal life. Also for a professional career, it is not easy to go alone but united with colleagues it is certainly easier to step into business. A human being is destined to share its emotions and thoughts with someone, to be in a community. It is not always easy to agree with everyone, but still there is no good community without unity. And it's not just for people. Look at the ants, or bees, what they achieve if they work together. Without harmony and unity, life does not work very well.

I wanted to look around a bit at what unity in art means. So in general, the definition would be that unity is a principle that refers to a set of compositional strategies used by an artist to make the parts of a painting or music to stand together as a whole. So if a composer uses different motifs, of compositional structures within one piece, and unite them with a structural balance (like getting back to some parts) it still can stand as unity.

Thinking about that, I decided what will be my entry for this topic unity. There is one piece called Midnight Rhapsody, which combines different sections and characters. The composer is Melody Bober, who is a teacher and composer from Minnesota. I got some of her compositions and they are interesting and motivational. This Rhapsody has five parts. The first part is the opening part, an introduction with chords. The middle section is the most developed, in a major key, with some cheerful scales and chords. The unity is achieved well as the second and fourth parts are almost the same, but at the end, we have a final dramatic part, which justifies the rhapsody title for this piece.

Hope you will like the unity of this musical piece, and enjoy it.

Sort:  

After experiencing lots moments alone by myself I know what it means for humans to share emotions and be united.

Thanks for this

Oh I am sorry that you had a lot of moments in loneliness, hope that it has passed and you have found the connection and unity. Wishing you all the best and thanks for stopping by :)

I feel better now.
Stay safe and healthy..

Very nice as always

Gracias por participar y disfrutar de Hive Open Mic

Cool of you to consider what unity means to you and see how it pertains to art. I like the way you think. Yes, this song unites some distinctly individual musical phrases as one cohesive song of many flavors. By the way, you look beautiful in this natural lighting - I think visually this is a very attractive presentation of your piano playing. The audio quality is similarly pleasant.

Oh, the video is better this way? Then I may consider leaving the piano in this room, butvthere is no much space here either.

I have some extra teenagers in my home living for some days with us 🤣 The Easter holidays started so my son is having a friend here and I had to move my piano to the living room to leave him the piano room. It was very funny to make this video. They were there in the background and actually it was a real live music as I had audience 😁

Thank you for your feedback 😊

Bravo, aplausos de pie para ti!! Super hermoso @mipiano!!!

Gracias mi querida @dianakyv
He visto tu publicación ❤️🙌 reina de canto :))

I'm not going to deny that it's the first time I've seen one of your videos, and I fell in love with your talent. What beautiful music you create with those friendly hands. God bless you. I loved it...

Thank you @jesuslnrs for stopping by and listening to me 🤗
It is so nice to get back some feedback.

Gracias de verdad, esto es maravilloso si todos nos escuchamos unos a otros, así es una comunidad verdadera. Se me llenaron los ojos de lagrimas porque me has sorprendido con tu visita, de verdad. Muchas gracias 😇🎶

Espero la familia está mejorando 🙏

It's such a relaxing feeling to listen to you play. So delicate, yet full of passion and this song is no exception.
I love the way you play, it brings out the emotion of the music so well. Please release an album beautiful. 💚🙏🤗

Every single not you hit produce such a great tone. Love to listen to your music as always.

Beautiful talent.

Thank you :)

I love piano. Glad to meet you.

Que belleza, me encantó tu entrada, para mi eres la reina del piano. Me encantó mirar la gloria en tu rostro cuando comenzó esta obra tan maravillosa que nos traes para esta semana. Felicidades. 😘😘😘😘

Jejeje, la reina del piano 😇 Suena bien :))

La gloria en el rostro se debe a que me reía por mi publico que tenía allí detrás, escondidos 😂. Tenía que grabar luego como anuncio la semana de nuevo y pegarlo al principio porque me reía mientras hablaba. Bueno , no pasaría nada y si lo dejo también. Voy a ver tu publicación, guapa 🤗

Jajjajajjajajjajaja que bueno saber eso, estuvo genial. Me agradó mucho ver esas emociones en tu rostro. De eso se trata todo esto, de vivir, cantar y recordar estos bellos momentos.

Bravissimo! tu participación es una parada obligatoria para mí semanalmente. Muy interesante cómo abordas el tema de la "unidad" desde la perspectiva artística y musical, esta pieza sin duda es un buen ejemplo de cómo se "unifican" distintos matices, escalas y podríamos decir "emociones" en una hermosa composición ¡ejecutada de forma magistral por esas manos angelicales! Estoy de acuerdo con Cabe, te favorece esta iluminación, ¡gracias por compartir una vez más un pedacito de tu alma con nosotros! Hermosa tú , y tu música como siempre ¡Un gran saludo!

Bravissimo! your participation is a mandatory stop for me weekly. Very interesting how you approach the theme of "unity" from an artistic and musical perspective, this piece is undoubtedly a good example of how different nuances, scales and we could say "emotions" are "unified" in a beautiful composition, executed masterfully by those angelic hands! I agree with Cabe, this enlightenment favors you, thank you for once again sharing a piece of your soul with us! Beautiful you, and your music as always. A big greeting!

Julio, tu sabes que valiosos son tus comentarios? Siempre admiro tu manera de expresión, muchísimas gracias por tu atención que prestas a los demás 🙌 y a la mujer del piano 😁

Sí, quería ver que es unidad en artes, que es lo que se considera unidad entre las partes de una composición. Pues como variedad de diferentes motivos, carácteres y técnicas que al final hacen una armonía y unidad estructural. (Espero esta palabra existe en castellano :) jeje)

El video se ve mejor así entonces? Oh, tendré que trasladar el piano cada vez que quiero grabar, porque normalmente no está en esta habitación...mi hijo tenía invitados y les dejé la habitación donde está el piano. Tus palabras me alegran , gracias de nuevo 😇

You are awesome! I love your sound!

Hey, thank you @marijocnt , as the same I like your violin playing 🎶🎶🌠🌠

Gracias por escucharme 🤗

I could listen to you play piano all day. I thought you did a great job and explaining how this composition ties in to the theme of unity. The smaller parts make the whole, indeed. Beautiful.

Thank you for listening to this entry @acousticsteveo :) Gracias por escucharme y comentar 😇 (you said you would like to learn Spanish, so the lessons stared now ;D

I’m pretty sure the Spanish says thank you for listening and commenting. Correct? Yay, free lessons. 😎
