Silver Cord by Ye77a
11 songs, ensemble in a fine art project "The Brain Soundtrack" trilogy.
This album comes from the second chapter "Back & Forward".
The music in the album is inspired by the previous versions or musical states of the Works: from a musical score
the film "Back & Forward", to an extended score version of the 7 Acts of the opera "Effort OF THE Reflex".
In Silver Cord the sonic trip is found in an abstract dream narrative taken from the second chapter: as a film "Back & Forward" and the
live performance of the film the opera "Effort OF THE Reflex" .
In the album the story is absorbed by the melodic need of a song, focusing more in the emotional state of the characters
using the narrative only as a guide. Ruby is the dreamer and in the dream she finds herself in melodies and words that describe an emotional state of mind, where she is dreaming and some how in control of the dream world, creating it as she goes, leading the dream to the dreamer so she can awake with the right information gained and learned.
The sonic ambiance was inspired by an electronic techno orchestral dream Universe … A need to explore the music structure that was so happily ignored in scores and experimental composition, and now a need to gain a more common language through melodies and harmonies.
To search & finding the melody (as the new language to be learned) was the main concept in this chapter of my work, so i dedicate all my energies to focus on the melodies of my emotions, as Ruby is me in a shape of a metaphor, a stone Girl to be carved by her shadow to became a ruby . a precious stone that becomes the Ruby , a Jewel .
"The Brain Sound Track" is a body of work, in development, since its beginning in 2002. It is a trilogy of projects, that its sole author, the artist Ye77a (stage name) defines as “the soundtrack of my life”.
On the first chapter Yella created an website as the central piece and then added several parts. One short movie, that are four musical video clips, where the music came after as a result of the image editing. The clothes are also a conceptual tool because they are vehicle of communication and therefore a pillar to the narrative.
It ends with the author edition of an mini album "4play" in a thousand copies and small live performances.
The second chapter starts with a written tale of seven stages, complemented by drawings, as the base to the making of art movie "Back & Forward" in continuation of "4play" narrative. The all process of making was captured and video documented in a documentary " Making On B & F". Besides that, the clothes are like sculptures in evolution, in the seven stages. All photographed and extra video footage produce, for later artistic purposes (video installations and portraits).
On the net the project, become an Ye77a blog. The LiveArt oPera piece "Effort of the Reflex" is the accomplishment effort, going through all stages and, look back by a mirror. Is the frontier, of the second and third chapter, and here YeLLa had the conviction to make a show. A live art piece, self sufficient, depending only of sound amplification.
This chapter is completed with a full album of songs, "Silver Cord", that are the musical score of the movie already made. In the quest of melody.
The third chapter, is in it's early age and the way of is communication is in process and YeLLa's mind.
The all project is: composed, produced, mastered, design, sketched, handmade, edited, and presented by her to serve this dreamy universe of consciousness
