The WavePhotograph by Alison Shaw

I waited and stretched and reached for this photograph. I watched as this wave broke itself over and over again against this rock on a warm fall day in September. The wind was coming from one direction and the waves from the other. Sometimes when the wind and water would meet nothing would happen and I would click in vain. But sometimes, every 20 waves or so, something magical would happen and the wind would lift the crest of the wave and just peel it back.

Something MoreSong by Josh and Seth Larson

What called to me in this photograph was that this wave was reaching out for the sky. I was touched by what I imagined the future and past of this wave to be… crashing down on the shoreline over and over and then having another unique opportunity to reach up to the sky each time. My first inspired thought from the image was of a flowing sound so I picked up a Ukulele to create the softness and lightness of this image and this flowing 6/8 time signature series of notes revealed themselves.

Artist
Josh and Seth Larson (Something Underground) Brothers Seth and Josh Larson and their long-time drummer, Trevor Mariotti, were born into musical families. That deep-rooted connection to music is ever-present in their delivery. Rock, reggae and funk are just a few of the vehicles they use to move their audience. Their commitment to charity ranges from supporting children with disabilities to raising awareness of landmine victims on an international scale. Locally, their regular installments of Warehouse Gatherings bring together members of the Denver and Colorado music scene to connect, collaborate and create. Love is not just a musical message; it is a way of life.

SearchingFilm by Laura Luchetti

My reaction to this Song was ‘Lightness, sunshine and melancholy.’ For me it was about Ascending, searching for a sort of deeper knowledge. The first visual that came to me was a pair of wings. I imagined there were two spirits looking for each other in this magical space where time is suspended. These spirits are so close, but somehow the woman cannot see what she is looking for… It is when she decides to not “look” but to “feel” she finally finds what she is searching for.
