Beautiful Sounds Assignment


This was a challenge, to find something that I appreciated as a sensory piece free from other influence or bias. But I did come up with something....

Digital Dagger's Still Here:



Let's disregard the lyrics for a moment, (which ARE hauntingly beautiful) and focus instead on what we hear. A chilling ghost like vocality, somber piano, twinkling keys, a building crescendo, steady drums...

It's melancholy and nostalgic at the same time, a melody that appeals to me deeply. It's like a sad tale of lost love...

Ner-Tamin

There's such a strong sense of surrealism in all of Digital Dagger's music but I think this piece captures it the best.
