Wednesday Wake Up Call 24.10.12

Shades of Edgar...

It's Wednesday and that means a healthy dose of creativity and Wednesday Wake Up Call to get us going. 

I (Leslie Moon) was excited to find this haunting piece of music as I had been thinking of Edgar Allen Poe for the past several days. I was thrilled to discover that Max Ablitzer ( a delightful and very talented musician) will be performing in London at the Bush Theatre on November 3, 2012.(Wish I could be in the audience.)  His videos will the projected while he plays  his songs on the piano to enchanting poetry recited by Tishani Doshi.
Check out the link for the southasianlitfest to see what Tishani is doing.

What does the music and or video evoke in your creative mind?? It has mine going full speed!!
Enjoy today's Poe"ish" prompt
