Sunday, February 14th 2021 will bring the release “Lyra”; a pop song for alto, piano, and double-viola string quartet about recognizing someone in your present as being a soulmate from a past life, but living with the pain of THEM not recognizing YOU (which seemed a fitting theme for Valentine’s Day). The chords used in the song are meant to synesthetically match the colors of the stars found in the Lyra constellation, as well as the Ring Nebula, via Mary’s personal synesthesia color palette.
“Lyra” was composed as part of Mary’s ongoing collaboration with the incredible Museum of Science, Boston as part of their Synesthesia Suite: Live concert series, and was premiered at the Charles Hayden Planetarium on November 30th 2017.
Staring Feburary 14th, you will be able to download the track (featuring gorgeous album art by the incredible Kristilyn Ink) on Mary’s Bandcamp page, watch the synesthesia-inspired music video (created by the amazing planetarium team at Museum of Science, Boston) on Mary’s YouTube page, and download the sheet music (so you can make your own cover version, if you wanna) via the sheet music shop. Both the audio track and sheet music will be via pay-what-you-wish pricing, and links will posted here on the news page starting at midnight on the 14th.
Thanks to one and all, and wishing you a space-y Valentine’s Day! <3
