On the one hand, this would be very fascinating and it would be interesting to see how someone else interprets the music. But on the other hand, every listener has his own ideas about what is behind the music. If I saw such a movie, I would always have the pictures of the movie in mind rather than my own images.

you're right, Ardens. In fact this is a problem for any musician that provides videos or their music....

Perhaps that's why Moya didn't do any music videos for this album, aside from the 'visions of tara' clip (isnt that what it's called??) which I suppose is more to inform the viewer of what it's about than impose imagery of the story upon them.

If I'm not wrong there also a video of 'Show me (Jakatta Mix)'.... it's likely a promo video only.

That's right. In fact, I've only ever seen it on two websites, one being Universal's Japanese website. I'm not sure of the other sight.

Check Google to see if you can find it. Search for "moya brennan show me music video" or something like that to see what you can come up with.

There a couple of examples of really good interpretation of concept albums of other artists:
Kate Bush – “The Line, the cross & the curve” movie based on The Red Shoes
Pink Floyd – “The Wall”
Marillion – “Brave”
All of them are just stories, which are illustrating music created by those artists. And all of them are really, really interesting.

I think Maire’s album “Two Horizons” have huge visual potential. This is a pure story, written by music and words.

Lol - I hate to go so off-topic, but I just discovered an electronic/dance artist a few days ago that I had not heard of before. The artist is BT, and he has a new album called "This Binary Universe." As I listen to it, it's non-lyrical (at least as much of it as I've heard), but there's just something about it where you can tell it's a great concept album (it's a bit of electronic - very ethereal, a bit of modern rock, a lot of experiental stuff like baby sounds and wind chimes - probably sounds of his newborn baby). In fact, the CD comes with a bonus DVD, which has animations for each song (which is also enriched in Dolby 5.1), which probably strengthens its 'conceptiness' (although I can't say for sure, since I haven't yet seen the DVD). I hope to buy the album soon, at which time I'll post a topic on it in Rattle Bag.

OK - back to Two Horizons!

As a new listener to Two Horizons maybe I should not be contributing in this topic yet. It is for the first time now that I'm listening to it on my main stereo set. The first two tracks (there may be more - forget) have vocals filtered in a way that make them unreal and distant, as is the vocal in the collaborative "Miles and Miles". The eerie vocal tone is further compounded by the tremulous effect applied, as if she is singing through a rotating speaker, as with a Hammand organ.

Outside of that, the album seems to have many sounds found on Enya's masterpiece "Shepherd Moons", such as the third track, which can be so ethereal as to be more Enya than Enya.

For now I would say, listen to it at home, not in a noisy place, so the fine details come through. And have in a friend who is a good cook, and set your room lighting for super chill-out. Just a suggestion.

This is still my favorite Moya album!! When it first came out, I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if Moya did a TH video with music videos for each song that told the story as well! I would love to see something like that!! If I was her record lable, I would suggest it!! :wink:
