When Photography And Music Mix

As many of you already know, my son is home from college for the summer.

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned he’s musically inclined?

I wish I could say he got his musical talent from me, but I have …

Absolutely NO musical talent.

None, zero, zip.

(I do sing  poorly  loudly while driving though!)

While other high schoolers were rocking out to the latest and greatest tunes,

My son thrived on writing songs.

And, not the type of songs you’d expect from someone his age.

His dream is to someday compose movie soundtracks.

In fact, his idol is Hans Zimmer.

Hans isn’t a bad person to look up to, is he?

Yesterday afternoon when I returned home,

My son surprised me with a short one minute video he had made.

He said he felt inspired to compose music after thumbing through some of my sunset shots.

My mom-heart was incredibly touched.

If you can spare one minute of your day,

I hope you’ll take the time to watch/listen to what he put together.

If you’re too busy to do so now,

Come back and listen at a time when you can sit, relax, and enjoy.

One minute is such a short period of time,

But his video packs a whole lot of relaxation into every second.

    Wow, I love it! How does he compose it? What does he use? He’s very talented!

      I will pass along your compliment.
      He plays several instruments and he also uses electrical sound programs.

    That was so nice! I wish it were longer as it’s very relaxing. Way to go Parker!!

      I need him to make a “nod off to sleep version” that’s a little longer.
      I could use it at night!

    • Suzanne

      I’m sorry.
      It seems to be loading fine on this end.
      I wonder what would cause that to happen?

    • Suzanne

      I will tell him you enjoyed it.
      And, thank you.

    Wow. That was terrific. Beautiful pics and great music.

    • Suzanne

      Thank you.
      I think he did a great job!
      (But, I’m his mom so you know how that goes!)

    Watched it all the way from down under, Australia! Go Parker 🙂

    • Suzanne

      Wow – that will make him happy.
      I’ll be sure to let him know.

    Hans Zimmer is a great musical role model. We love his music in our household down under.

    My only complaint – it is only a minute! WHEN he records and releases (and I know of at least one composer who has released soundtrack type music without a movie – Adrian von Ziegler for one) I want to be able to purchase it. So, your boy has already sold one album when he gets it recorded! 🙂
