I am very excited about Inside Llewyn Davis, a film coming out in December about a singer-songwriter in New York City (he carries a cat around on the subway— sold). The soundtrack is up at NPR First Listen, and it’s great!
Tyler Lyle - “I Will Follow Love All The Way Home”
For those afraid to die alone
Think of all the friends that you have known
And every blade of grass
Every face that kissed you back
All the sunsets and pouring rain
Every joy and Holy pain
Every kiss and bloody stain
Ah, the proof that we have lived!
In no beginning and no end!
Every flash of light you’ve seen!
Every color, every dream!
Will be forever singing on
In the Holy Mind of God-
The Immortal burning Sun with
Every person that you’ve loved!
And I swear it will be enough.
And you’ll be there…
And Love will follow you all the way home.
The Beach Boys isolated vocal tracks on “You Still Believe In Me.” Beautiful.
“This is a visualization of Beach Boys vocals inspired by the physics of church bells,” Alexander Chen, who works at the Google Creative Lab, explains over at Vimeo. “Using a mathematical relationship between a the circumference of a circular surface and pitch, I wrote code that draws a circle for each note of the song.”
