A Masterpiece – London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony

I felt hugely inspired from watching the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, a creation that far surpassed mine and probablymany other peoples expectations.  The visuals and the music went together so well and Danny Boyle created a masterpiece of an event, not sure it can be topped.  It far surpassed Beijing!!!

I will go as far to say that it was the most inspirational event I have actually seen.

Two piece of music that I will post are both by Underworld and feature Dame Evelyn Glennie on percussion.

– “And I will Kiss”, this was played during the Industrial Revolution part of the ceremony.  The strength of the drums and other percussion instruments is incredible, and it really gives this raw power and intensity.
– “Caliban’s dream”, this was played during the lighting of the Olympic Cauldron by young up and coming athletes.  This music was more pieceful yet it felt a little eery or mysterious, hard to explain, though at the same time it’s a beautiful song.
This event sent out a message to those that didn’t know that British music and composers are way up there with the best.  Even Dizzee Rascal and Emeli Sande performed. One person who was terrible as ever, Paul McCartney, why was he even included?!
Though again this was an amazing event and Danny Boyle can be proud with what he has produced and directed!

Jazz and Soul music genre’s were the big contributors during this era.
