    Spring officially arrives here in France on the 20th March, not a moment too soon!

    After several weeks of sub-zero temperatures, between –10 and –20, depending on day or nighttime, we seem to have entered a period of exceptional warmth.

    Over the past couple of years I’ve found myself regularly tuning into a piece of music which seems to empathise with the whole ecological, permaculture way of things.

    I suppose each person will have a different perception, however for me it will always be Nightwish with Tarja Turunen, singing Wishmaster, live on stage from their End of an Era concert.:clap:

    I’ll post the Youtube link below, it may even work!

    Anyone else got a 5 minute permaculture musical inspiration they can share?:think:

    Hi Purecajn

    Interesting choice. 8)

    I suppose I see Wishmaster as basically contemporary pagan – but then again I’ve spent the last 10 years wondering up and down the French Alpes with a herd of goats! :rofl:

    “One & One” seems to be contemporary romantic – reflective of permaculture in Louisiana? ……. similarly with the Sunshine Coast and a “Little Corner of the Earth that smiles at me” - what say you eco? ;)


    I wonder if any more brave souls will offer further insights.

    Saltwater by Julian Lennon.

    Says it all for me. Especially when he says, "What will I think of me the day that I die".

    Hi eco, not too tragic I hope? =(

    Hey permasculptor, that song is also epic through a pair of reasonable earphones. Definitely one to add to my playlist, thanks. :y:

    Come on annette, you’re supposed to add a link to your favourite version so we can share your permaculture musical experience :hi:

    Hi Peter

    I tried to upload it! I am technically challenged. Below is the best I can do. But you can't just click on it. You have to type it in or cut and paste.

    Oh my it worked!!!:clap:

    Hi Annette

    Nothing quite equals the feeling of exhilaration when it all comes together and works!! :rofl:

    Saltwater by Julian Lennon certainly emphasises all the problems of the world and the inherent tragedy. =-

    It surprised me to hear so many reflective and passive pieces of music, perhaps all the reactionaries are out digging swales.:think:

    It’s a pleasure to listen to a little bit of the heart of permaculture reflected in the music of its adherents. ;)

    Many thanks to all who took the time to post. :party:

    Hi again Permasculptor.

    I can see why the Permie song, however a bit too Sunday-School for my tastes.:angel:

    However, I find myself listening increasingly to Rakim.:)

    Yes I thought the permie song deserved a place in the list but sunday school describes it well.
    I should have issued a warning with Rakim It is addictive .I have not had Toward the within out of my cd stacker for over a year.I am very fond of their version of stretched on your grave Too.

    Hi Permasculptor

    Yes, Rakim definitely needs an addiction warning.

    It seems to be based around some kind of Mantra/Incantation?

    I don’t know if I dare listen to anymore. :(

    Hi youngwarrior

    Many thanks for the two pieces.

    Very smooth 8)

    Looking back on my original suggestion of Wishmaster, I can see how far removed I am from most of the other postings. :think:

    Perhaps it’s just as well that permaculture has such a broad base! :)

    AN ENVIRONMENTALIST has brought to life the sounds of a famous wood by laying the them down on a CD.

    Music man Lee Gregory, 40, has spent over 100 hours recording and composing the 42-minute symphony using the sounds of nature.

    Lee, who sells music memorabilia online, has been an acoustic musician for a couple of years making and recording music using natural sounds.

    He single-handedly ran the project on behalf of Offshoots Permaculture Project, where he has volunteered since 2005.
