Janice Lacy Project

Janice Lacy Project

Listen to instrumental piano music by Janice Lacy Project from Los Angeles on their debut album Sanctuary for the Soul.

Fronted by pianist/composer Janice Lacy, the other Project members are Rob Mullins (piano and keyboards), Jeness (cello), Larry Antonino (bass), and Tony Braunagel (drums and percussion) – all artists in their own right. All fourteen tracks on the album were composed by Lacy, motivated by this goal:

I want my music to serve as a sanctuary, a refuge, a place of safety, peace, healing and joy, where listeners can go when they need to escape from the pressures and stress of the world around them.

There’s a nice review by Kathy Parsons at MainPiano.com.

Album

Single

Marika Takeuchi was asked to specifically compose and perform a song for this movie, and she came up with this remarkable music and released it as a single. This time-lapse film by landscape photographer Terje Sørgjerd (TSOPhotography) from Oslo, Norway has over 4.5 million views on Vimeo.

“The Arctic Light” is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun. The sunset and sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again.

This was created between Apr 11 and May 10, 2011 in the Arctic on the archipelago Lofoten in Norway. He captured some amazing sunrises such as the one at 1:06 where you see a single scene from day to night to day, which is from 9pm to 7am (think about that for a minute – 10 hours with light like that).
