├ôlafur Arnalds (song of the week)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cOr7JmcOas

Exquisite. One of my favourite composers. Take just five minutes to still yourself and soak in this song, in its simplicity. Dwell on it. Contemplate it. Stop yourself from switching tabs or checking your phone again, just settle and be quiet in this piece of artwork. Notice the details of the girl’s hair and eyes, the color of the flowers, the light on her hand. Focus on the beauty, let yourself encounter the sublime.

Phosphorescent (song of the week)

 

My current jam. I recommend taking a few quiet minutes to appreciate the simple beauty of this video, and spend time focusing on the intricate details of the composition and the questions it raises for the viewer when coupled with the song. (Plus, how often does one get to use so beautiful a word as phosphorescent?)
