Why haven't "they" tried to superimpose the two? "They" have, haven't they? What do you think music videos are? An amalgam? A mixture? A compound? An alloy? Should be some beautifully screwed foursome-indulging molecule like Methane (CH4). How else would you explain the fusion of vision and sound? Two necessities, two different energy forms, two unequally matched sensory cousins. If such disparate cousins could get along, why couldn't the Pandavas and Kauravas make peace? The answer, my friend lies in the (300,000,000)^2 separation factor between mass and energy. Thats what separated the Pandava-Kaurava enimity from the vision-hearing togetherness.
In such circumstances, along came Fotocommunity. Their idea, as I have lifted form their website is as below
The idea behind this project is to match a song of your liking to a
photograph that you have taken. Please add the lyrics so that we, your audience,
can see what you associate with your photograph.
Since the contest is closed, my blog is my only hope!!! So, now to indulge in some sono-pictorial fetishes; all pictures taken in Bombay on June 10th.
1. Setting sun @ Marine drive
Song: Daylight, Coldplay
To my surprise and my delight
I saw sunrise I saw sunlight (Did I? I thought I had mentioned sunset, Nevermind!!!)
I am nothing in the dark
And the clouds burst to show daylight
2. Waves beating against the protective stones lining Marine Drive
Song: Sea of Stories, Zebediah Plush
PS: Don't those stones look like a methane molecule?
The stone design brings another song to my mind, "Yaava Shilpi Kanda Kanaso"
