MARISA WRITES AND PERFORMS @ VAN GOGH MUSEUM - Amsterdam

Over 400,000 visitors made their way to the Van Gogh Museum to see the 'Dreams of Nature' Symbolism from Van Gogh to Kandinsky exhibition. I was asked by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam to write a song to accompany a painting, I must admit I felt the weight of expectation heavily. Considering the last piece of music inspired by this painting 'Lake Keitele' by Finnish painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela, was penned by Jean Sibelius 100 years ago, I wondered what kind of justice I could do.

You can read my blog about the writing of AURORA here. The song seridipitously found it's way into my head. It truly was a creative osmosis evolving from paint, through to words to sound. It was recorded in an afternoon at Wild Verband Studio in Boxmeer with Dutch musician BJ Baartmans who added some beautiful guitar work. When we finished, we both felt we had created something very special. We decided that it should also be available for people who can't make it Amsterdam to the exhibition to hear it. So now you can purchase the song on itunes or Bandcamp.
