“The best new TRANCE and PROGRESSIVE in a 2 hour Mix — Th-This is a state of Trance-Trance-Trance”
These words kick-off the most famous music show world-wide, a session from Armin-Van-Buuren’s ‘A State of Trance’.
Trance genre and I go way back. Been in love with this genre of music ever since I listened to ‘In and Out of Love’, before that I listened mostly to Techno and other Electronica sub-genres.
To the newbies out there, trance and progressive music is very euphoric, melodic and even hypnotic! It induces strong emotion (as classical music did, maybe due to its tempo between 125 and 160 bpm). Hence, in an art-block, am I? Let’s listen to some Trance (and maybe Bach’s Preludium in C Major too).

I find much of the art in these side-effects of creating art in itself. I would not use the eraser when most necessary. The rather polluted negative-space has created an aura of dream-like qualities- has as it not?
And I made it by following this guide… ( click image)
Ah the circuit was so easy, but much time was spent for finding a power source and successfully connecting the wires to that. Why?
Well, I used the 3.6 V Li-ION battery from an old Nokia that was lying around. The trouble was that it’s metallic plates ( or the connectors if you may) were abit depressed in the casing of the battery. So I taped the wires on, but they wouldn’t touch the plates much, and so, after trying much time trying to tape it all smoothly, the annoying ol’e wires just popped out immediately (when I stopped supporting it with my fingers), so anyways, today I just wound a string around it to keep it in place..and it works!
I connected my ones ( the LEDs) in Parallel rather than Series, as then I could easily add more LEDs..
A new cover image ( for Facebook)-// That’s what I wanted to create today. To show my other side, that is not artistically serious. That is fun, and loves music. //
So here, it is//// And as always, I used only my photo ( that I took today),and no other images or references are used./// Enjoy//
Howdy fellow bloggers! Well, If you have been following my awesome awesome blog till now then you mut know that an artist (hehe) I am, but I get the annoying ‘block‘ from inspiration a few times….. I make poor quality art when not inspired, as I dont put out all the emotions in my art then (as there is an absense of emotions/surreali-ty in art itself) …… though, when inspired; things get kinda awesome!
So, yeah, back to my story that how inspiration came? well, I was bored and annoyed (due to something.) and just turned on the TuneMark app in my ipod and listened to an amazing song on Digitally Imported Radio: Vocal Trance….And
BAM!!! Inspiration!To create a enchanting Oriental (japanese?) landscape scene on my canvas….. And this will be made with a knife instead of brushes… So the next time I post (probably tomorrow) I may have an awesome painting to share with you all! 🙂
Oh Yeah, I had almost forgot, here’s the song I listened to:
I love Trance music. Especially Vocal Trance music. And this song has been stuck in my head throughout the day…. It’s so—so– minimal and ‘clean’ ( if you know what I mean) 🙂
This is how I roll! ( in trance music)
It’s from Ultra Music festival (in Miami i guess..?) and man is this the best remix of Sophie Ellis Bextor’s Not giving Up.. So here, enjoy!
I heard the original song too, and by far this version is awesome!
Ciao, see you all in about a few hours..
About Techno/Trance music, yeah many ppl say that trance is repetitive….but to me it sounds beautiful and minimal (and yeah sometimes I hate the too much repetitive songs…).Great to listen to when creating Art..
