Myths, more myths and music everywhere! What’s a meandering mind like mine to make of it all?

Deer Bear, about this myth music theme . . .

Yeah, the places I have been with on this theme journey. Forewarning, some of the unexpected creations I’ve discovered during this fishing expedition will be coming to these blogcasa pages very soon.  Very interesting things are going on in creative minds everywhere. Oh yes indeed. Some are very scary.  Now, on with this show:

*

Medusa Trailer  — Take note, this is a ‘myth’ of a trailer for a film that does not exist. I learned that from the comments section.   What cheek! Myth = movie myth. How deliciously quaint! Something created out of nothing to serve a purpose. I think in this case to show the trailer making talents of Jee Suk Kim and Jaguar Lee.  Why else?

 JeeSuk Kim

Produced by Jee Suk Kim and Jaguar Lee

Medusa : Alyssa Marquez
Athena : Kelsey Bujacich
Poseidon : Mike Sweet

Something more modern regarding myths–and yet, so appropriate. Where do you ride your bicycle? What myths are you making?

Beach house  “Myth”

Ryan Smith upload

Lyrics:

http://www.myspace.com/beachhousemusic

Drifting in and out, see the road you’re on
You came rolling down the cheek
Say just what you need
And in between it’s never as it seems
Help me to make it
Help me to make it
If you build yourself a myth
Know just what to give
What comes after this
Momentarily bliss
Consequence of what you do to me
Help me to make it
Help me to make it
Found yourself in a new direction
Eons far from the sun
Can you come when they come to reach you
Let you know you’re not the only one
Can’t keep hanging on
To all that’s dead and gone
If you build yourself a myth
Know just what to give
Do you lies
We’ll let the ashes fly
Help me to make it
Help me to make it

~

Beach House performs “Myth” on the Letterman Show May 18th, 2012.  I’ve decided to add this version because I’ve never heard of this group before and some visuals might help other folks too. I wonder why he takes his shoes off? Perhaps because they’re new? Hmm.

Polish Myth Dispelled

[I could not resist. Hey, there’s music and drum rolling, what more do you want? Oh, I probably ought not to have posed that question. Comic relief you may need later. Seriously. A joke is a joke, right? ]

Jerry Pizet

The Fisher King from Merlin Series Three, composed by James Gosling.  The king and the land are one and the search for the holy grail to heal them both when the kind is unwell. Hmm. Is there a holy grail for our times?  Perhaps it’s the need to reconnect to the web of life instead of thinking we’re ‘outside’ of it?

In Arthurian legend, the Fisher King, or the Wounded King, is the latest in a long line charged with keeping the Holy Grail. Versions of his story vary widely, but he is always wounded in the legs or groin and incapable of moving on his own. When he is injured, his kingdom suffers as he does, his impotence affecting the fertility of the land and reducing it to a barren Wasteland. Little is left for him to do but fish in the river near his castle Corbenic. Knights travel from many lands to heal the Fisher King, but only the chosen can accomplish the feat. This is Percival in earlier stories; in later versions, he is joined by Galahad and Bors.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fisher_King

 Merlin Series Three – Original Television Soundtrack is the official soundtrack to the third season of the BBC’s Merlin. All music is composed by Rob Lane, Rohan Stevenson, and James Gosling. Music is performed by the Slovak Symphony Orchestra and Philharmonia Chorus. Soprano solo by Kim Chandler and violin solo by Janice Graham.

And now a Fisher King musical piece with lyrics.

The Fisher King by Anuna

The Fisher King appears on Deep Dead Blue. Anuna leader John Mcglynn sings it.

Jethro Tull – Flying Dutchman – Music Video. This was a tough Tull choice. The photographs decided the issue for me.

The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. The myth is likely to have originated from 17th-century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century. Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Dutchman

James Padmore

I made this video because I love this song and it always made me think of these kind of images when I first listened to it.  The photographs were taken by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, celebrated photographer from Whitby (Yorkshire, England).  I hope you enjoy the video. Please leave comments.  Thanks.

I selected this because of the song lyrics. If anyone finds a ‘gentler on the ears’ version, please share it.

The Sword – Lament For The Auroch [ Age Of Winters ] 

Lyrics:
Laboring in the liquid light of Leviathan
Spectres swarm around the sunken cities of the
Saurians
Rising up from the void through the blackness of
eternal night
Colossus of the deep comes crashing down with cosmic
mightAnd none may see again the shimmering of Avalon
Or know the fates of all the races man has cursed
Long gone are the ages of the Alchemists
Now there are none who know the secrets of the EarthHarken to the howl of the huntsman’s hounds
Or the clarion of kingdoms doomed and drowned
Lost to these lands is lore of the high ones
Sunless skies await the return of hte ArchonsLament the passing of the Auroch
And the slaying of the ancient wyrm
Would you dare to meet the gaze of the Basilisk
Or face the flames as the Phoenix burns?And none may see again the shimmering up of Avalon
Or know the fates of all the races man has cursed
Long gone are the ages of the alchemists
Blessed are those who keep the secrets of the earth
Lament the passing of the Auroch
And the slaying of the ancient wyrm
Would you dare to meet the gaze of the Basilisk
Or face the flames as the Phoenix burns?.*This is my homage to the standard myth concept.  I enjoyed the presentation of the story with the music overlaying it.  Yep, my picks are based on what tripped my trap along the way.The Legend of Osiris

One of my favorite mythological figures is the Green Man. I enjoy finding this pagan person in decidedly non-pagan establishments. I suspect he is having the last laugh.

The Green Man.

Oh now here we go with some of that OLD OLD OLD time religion indeed. The goddess of war appears in many forms across cultures.  I couldn’t find something I really liked–yet–for a particular ancient Irish hero sooooooo, here’s Omnia’s rendition of the Crone of War.

Omnia ~ The Morrigan ~ Live Religion  —- Perhaps this should be Drone of War? Or perhaps the drones are just our incarnations of the crones?

MuddahNatur

The Morrígan is a figure from Irish mythology. She is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty.
LYRICS

Over hills and over meadows
see the crow fly, feel her shadow
Over woods and over mountains
searching for a war

Her wings embrace each strife and battle
where swords they clash and chariots rattle
seeking out the one whose time
has come to take the blade

Morrigan ancient crone of war
I see your face, I’ll cry no more
Morrigan ancient crone of war
come lift me on your wings

Morrigan ancient crone of war
I hear your voice, I’ll breathe no more
Morrigan ancient crone of war
come set my spirit free

Kill for Morrigan
Maim for Morrigan
Fight for Morrigan
and you will
Slay for Morrigan
Die for Morrigan
Morrigan crone of war

      No problem on the name, Willowdwot21. Ah another crow lover–so do I. It wasn’t hard work at all, There’s just so many wonderful modern takes on the concept of ‘myth’ in music that one could swim in that video ocean for a long long time–“Thousands of Years”–. Why did I never hear that song until this? See, my mental music files are exploding! LOL.
      As for the Polish box within boxes–best seen full screen mode–smirk, smirk. 🙂

    Wonderful stuff here my friend.

    • October 23, 2013 at 4:11 pm

      Thank you, Henry Jekyll. There is a lot of wonderful music about myth–more than I realized before doing this post.
      I wonder what Jung would think of all the music.

        Hmmm, hadn’t given it much thought before. I am sure he acknowledges the impact of music on the psyche and its therapeutic effects. But there are probably others better equipped to address his opinion than I am.

    Wow, this is such wonderful art you found. I ride my bicycle on mountain bike trails behind the university. 😉

    • October 25, 2013 at 3:14 am

      Lucky you to be bike riding someplace safe and enjoyable.You might want to check out brulionman’s blog some time. He’s got a great bike and posts wonderful photos of where he’s been riding. The last one has amusing captions. There’s a link in the links and on “crisis bread” if you’re interested, Johnny.

    Thank you for adding more. I think there is a gremlin somewhere….. The second Beach House video with visuals? No visuals. Only audio and a black box. This is getting spookier. ….

    • October 25, 2013 at 3:16 am

      Hi Bear, gremlins are everywhere! There should not be a black box w/o visuals. Do the lyrics help with the Beach House song “Myth” ?
      Spooky spooks for Bear. LOL.
