film: LA LA LAND

PODCAST: deconstructing the ‘Audition’songย 

  • pop songs = adjective
  • musical song = verb
  • voice leading music and accompaniment like in real life audition
  • interesting to see individual layers stripped down: each instrument getting its time in the song to shine and add depth and meaning

THOUGHTS ON FILM

  • MAIN THEME: beautiful and reflects story centred on Mia and Sebastian
  • JAZZ EXISTENTIALISM, RIFFING AND ABOUT COMMUNICATION WITHOUT LANGUAGE TROUGH WORDS
  • Theme: ART – WHAT DO WE DO IT FOR, WHAT IS THE DREAM WORTH? KEEP STRIVING FOR BIGGER HEIGHTS
  • cinematography: LONG SHOTS, amazingly planned and choreographed
  • motto: LOVE DOESNT ALWAYS WORK OUT
  • THE HEARTACHE OF ART, the struggle
