Memory and light 3

By mrswoolybill
Composer Arvo Pärt described his work thus:
“I could compare my music to white light, which contains all colours. Only a prism can divide the colours and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener.”
Memory and light is an installation at Belsay Hall, based on Pärt's work. His music plays inside a horseshoe arrangement of glass slats – the glass appears to be clear until you look at the ends of the slats. And behind them, the mellow wooden panelling of the old hall.
For the music, listen here.
Thanks for looking,

Mesmerizing music. I have the ECM recording, where 3 versions of Spiegel im Spiegel alternate with 2 of Für Alina.
I can see how it would fit well with the visuals.

a great composer
I think your photo conveys the atmosphere very well
and I simply love the link from vision to sound (and vice versa)

would make a great wall hanger with a benign sedative effect* on the viewers..
* by way of reducing irritation and excitement

Made me think of vertical in-focus ICM, it there could be such a thing...
The music complements perfectly.

Thanks guys, and thanks to Pascal, Ollie and Leo for their UAs. I am uploading from this all week, I guess this is the shot that I care most about. I tried to convey sound hanging in space, because the space is as important as the notes.
The music is calming, I have it playing at the moment. I photographed the local election hustings last night, resumed work on the pictures at 6.30am to sort some out for the local reporter. Pärt works well under such circumstances...

I could see this as a design for a long scarf! Interesting range of colours and none really predominant.
