So Google informed me that it is Claude Debussy’s birthday. Happy Birthday!
Upon further investigation I found out that he left some pieces unfinished when he died. Musical compositions that were inspired by Edgar Allen Poe. I love Edgar Allan Poe’s writing and to be honest with you I’m getting all kinds of side tracked listening to Debussy’s work thinking about creepy Poe movie scenes to put together.
Today celebrate the synergy of sound with ideas.
