That is very awesome, though the song choice for Icarus doesn't seem right to me. Although that might be thanks to it being used in so many other medias.
I think would be an example of 'absolute music', where there is no context or intentional meaning behind it. I guess it carries a certain connotation associated with it, from how we have heard it contextualized some simply by being played in the backgrounds of film, commercials, or what have you. We bring that to the piece which it doesn't have on it's own.
If one looks at what Toccata
is, since that really all we have to work with since it does have titlling, what do we gather? Well a tocatto
is described as a virtuoso piece, shows off the skill of the the performer, ' emphasizing the dexterity of the performer's fingers'. What is also known is that this is one of the most well known among in organ work repetoire. So perhaps this piece was chosen as it shows off the skill of the virtuoso, as the art piece shows off the skill of Carpenter.
Anyways, I wonder if QCFA Gallery would consider adding videos that display their works much like this to their site, or to a youtube account? (unless they already do, I don't know)
Their themed displays, holiday, seasonal, or whatever would be nice to see in video, instead of just a pic. A pic of a pianting is one thing, but of sculpture I'd rather see in video. I bet they could get creative with scenery, music, light, and it would be awesome. We could link and embed them all over the place, great promotional thing for them, in that sense of it. Depending upon the size and weight of an art piece, they could shop for Electric Revolving Base's for mannequins, I was thinking about getting one for mine at one time, but anyways:http://buystoreshelv...equin/index.htm
There might be other ways of setting them in motion like that, too, but I having looked much further into that. But regardless, look at the result of doing it with QCFA gallery art? Yeah. Need I say anymore?
