Because my alien needs to communicate I figured she would also have some songs of her people, and maybe throughout the Universe. In trying to figure out what she would sound like, or as close as I could get to what I hear in my head, I’ve been roaming YouTube a lot this morning listening to different music and watching various music videos. Yesterday a blog I read had a video of “The Mummers Dance” by Loreena Mckennitt, so I decided to watch it again.
Finding a good video I closed my eyes and just listened. Not to the words, but the sound of the voice with the music. I am a fan of Loreena Mckennitt and “The Mummers Dance” is one of my favorite pieces by her. Just listening to the rise and fall of the voice, melody, and instruments was breathtakingly beautiful.
Why don’t you just turn up the volume, close your eyes, and just listen to the voice, not the lyrics and see what you come up with as a description?
