Sunday Serenity #143

I can't say that this particular piece of music elicits serenity. But my Sunday Serenity posts are as much about happiness, joy, bliss, pleasure and ecstasy as specifically about serenity.

Sometimes happiness is a nap in a hammock with Enya playing softly in your earbuds; sometimes it's reading a novel on the beach with the surf itself as background music; sometimes it's doing chores with the radio playing rock-and-roll loud enough to drown out the sound of the washing machine and vacuum cleaner; and sometimes it's a roller-coaster ride with the sound of your own screams joining others in a symphonic overture.

Requiem For a Dream is more akin to the latter two. It's neither rock-and-roll nor does it cause involuntary screams like fear-for-fun activities but it does elicit a gamut of emotions including fear, sadness, anticipation, and exhilaration.

This YouTube presentation of it does not make clear who the artist is and I wish I knew so I could know how to search for it at the store. I'm not even sure what genre it is. It sounds a lot like classical symphony but it also sounds like a movie soundtrack though not one I recognize. I'm interested in having it because I think it would make a good piece to write to when I need to conjure up certain moods for certain scenes.
