To quote their YouTube posted sentiments…
“Davor Jelacic & Rebeca ‘Becky’ Sánchez are VioDance, a duo of DJ/producer and a classically trained violinist, also multi-instrumentalist. In Spain, where we reside, we record violin covers in our home studio, and shoot music videos to share them on YouTube.” [Read Related Article]
Thanks to Sánchez and Jelacic one of their cover projects has now become our Vid of the Day.
As for my WordPress posted sentiments…
When the best days of one’s homeland can be best seen within life’s rear view mirror and, in the here and now, the views appear both harrowing and hopeless, beaming up to the Star Trek Universe can clear the short-term path to escapism; may even afford one a more enduring sense of deliverance.
Whether or not I’ve aptly described your own homeland’s situation, Ms. Sánchez’s violin driven symphonic score… which synopsizes / segues seven of Star Trek’s small screen theme songs… will restore or reaffirm one’s hope for a stellar future.
As Spock would add: Live long and prosper!
About all I can add is: Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy!
OK, OK, it’s fess up time. I am a Star Trek geek or Trekkie or Trekker or whatever. But, even if you’re not into Sci-Fi, you’ll still feel emotionally uplifted by this clip’s musical masterpiece. Hell, even an emotion denying Vulcan would regard this a feel good medley.
What we’ll be ear-witnessing, here, is a five minute retrospective… representative of this five-decade-old franchise’s small and large screen theme songs.
As the soundtrack to Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s vision / his spirit of interstellar amity / diplomacy, this also serves as a reminder that we can apply such sentiments to our more down to Earth matters. Additionally, as is true with Gene’s own screenplays and those of his writers, too, this clip also functions on multiple levels.
Starting with the orchestra, we witness multiple hundreds of folks singing and playing in harmony.
Beyond that, Star Trek scenarios do remind us that no matter how formidable unfriendly adversaries may appear… no matter how fiercely they may wage their wars against humanity, the righteous, indomitable human spirit can and will prevail.
To e.g. that… if fantasy’s futuristic Earthlings have been able to repeatedly outwit the Borg, why shouldn’t we view our own reality’s worldwide, recalcitrant leaders as equally inept?
More to the point, humanity’s very survival depends on our ability to channel that Star Trek / Roddenberry winning, positive attitude:
Resistance is NOT Futile!
