La vie est belle !

Effacedade

Effaced Facade-1

Is that right?

No, no! You must concentrate on the music!

I don’t understand. 

It’s the notation, the expression! It has a meaning. Music is like an emotion, the composer is trying to say something!

But…

Again. Read it carefully. Dal Segno!

 

 

Awesome authors in 42 words, Come read, come read!

    oohhhhh… this was a great response to the prompt~ i’m a music lover as well (band geeks unite~) and really appreciate how you conveyed how music extends beyond the notes and signs.

    Like I tell my daughter, you can’t just play it how you want to, those notes and symbols are there for a reason! I love where you went with this.

    It gives me fidgets when the coda isn’t separated by a line. Interesting take on the fermata placement, though.

      Sorry ’bout that… There’s a reason why I don’t actually write music 🎶😱 thanks for reading despite the “fidgets!”

    sometimes the hardest thing to do is to just “listen” to the world, the notes, the signs.

    This was a very creative take on the prompt.

    I had to google “Dal Segno,” but it was well worth it. Love your take on the prompt.

    You’ve taken the prompt to a different level. I loved the connection with the music notes and signs. Superb!

    Once I returned from the Googlezz I enjoyed this so much. I love how you mirrored the narrator’s confusion with any reader’s reaction who isn’t familiar (i.e. me). C’est magnifique!

      Thanks! The prompt question was “What’s your sign?” And all I could think of was musical notation! Band geek alert! I play the flute 🙂
