Music as Metaphor



Music as metaphor
Dissonance at the beginning
Things are forming
The primordial ooze, if you will
The conductor pushes and molds
The corps responds
Everyone listening
Blending
Building
Forming
Then... wait for it...
Power Chords!
A perfect blend of sound, vibration, emotion and humanity!

(start at 54 seconds)

HikeStorming II -- The Sequel -- Remixed for Greater Meaning and Impact (we hope)



This is a remixed / improved pitch video for the #ShootTheFuture project. The TV concept is about people rising up all over the world to offer real solutions to actual problems. It is based on the idea that "people in motion, " i.e. moving on trails, hiking or on urban hikes can help them to generate good thinking and a sense of belonging and empowerment. Hiking + Brainstorming = HikeStorming. The full slide how is here. http://bit.ly/29IP07f
