Discovering Bon Iver

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

An amazing thing happened to me today. I discovered Bon Iver. This morning, my friend Felipe, sent me a couple of links (1 2) to some videos of the musicians Bon Iver. The videos are wonderfully magical as they immediately transported me from my cubicle back to Spain, perhaps not consequently, where I first met Felipe. There, I remembered the way Spain felt and the magical moments I had in atmospheres not dissimilar to those depicted in the videos. Felipe is a beautiful musician himself and would often capture a room and elevate it to what seemed like a whole different world with his guitar, voice, and charisma.

Bon Iver has a fascinating story, one that I'm not surprised is the origin of this shockingly beautiful music.

Amazing music is truly transcendent for me, it lifts me up above my daily drama and proves to me once again that everything is going to be alright. It shows me beauty and connects me to something much larger and more important than myself.

For the gift of Bon Iver and Felipe's friendship, I am deeply grateful. Thank you.
