For this project, I chose to use the song No Light, No Light by Florence and the Machine. To me, this song feels empowered, passionate, and just a little bit angsty which is a combination that speaks to me and will often inspire me to write choreography. The piece uses various elements from a church setting, but in a very a typical way. Some examples are the way they use the organ, and the fact that the back up signers are actually young choir boys. This pulls enough from the imagery and feeling we have attached to these sounds to create an almost ethereal experience, without actually pulling in the religious connotation. The lyrics bring in this feeling of a relationship at a very tenuous, almost breaking, point.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
