Writing Music: Into the Woods Medley18:34
Being a fantasy writer myself, I love to listen to towards music that is suited to fantasy books. I naturally tend to gravitate towards music that has a sense of wonder and magic to it, filled with strong, bright emotions and quiet strength. Today, I would like to share a piece of music that has fantasy written all over it. This week’s Writing Music is a medley of music from the movie Into the Woods, performed by the ever amazing Lindsey Stirling.
This medley has an overarching feeling of hope and happiness to it. Being a medley, it wanders through several moods, all of which are very positive and quite happy. This is a piece of music that to me suggests scenes of bright hope, freedom, or simply joyful happiness. In particular, to my mind it conjures up scenes involving magic, discovery of beauty in unexpected places, and a sense of wonder.
What type of scene does this piece suggest to you? What are you listening to this week? Recommend me some great music!
