Ouriana's Meditation


OURANIA (or Urania) was one of the nine Greek Mousai (Muses), the goddesses of music, song and dance. Ouriana’s Meditation is an imagined musical work of a Muse. Muses are credited with helping Artists to create new work. Which, begs the question, “What inspires a Muse?” In this composition, an enchanted Music Box is transformed into a Data-Driven Instrument to control aspects of the sound. This Music Box shapes the sound and mutates its own function over time. A multi-colored light illuminates the Music Box from underneath to help create the illusion of mystique that surrounds the appearance of a Muse.
