The seed song for this thread is Severin Browne's My Love Mo Betta, an impossible-not-to-groove-to song from his album From The Edge of the World. Severin also composed the song Sparkling River, findable on another thread, as part of Now See Hear. My Love Mo Betta prompted Brian Nichols to create some digital art.
Severin Browne's song My Love Mo Betta inspired Los Angeles artist Brian Nichols to come up with this digital work. Brian's artwork has prompted two songs so far: Siempre Dos, by Chrissie Natoli, and True Heart, by Michael Morales.
Brian Nichols' digital art inspired the late Michael Morales to write the song True Heart. Michael was a true heart himself; a talented musician who helped other musicians with his house concert series in Washington State. He is much missed by his FAR-West family and many, many others. Hear a few more of Michael's songs here. True Heart prompted Byron Nysen to create a drawing and Mike Miller to create a photo.
Mike Miller's photograph inspired Jen Hajj to write this song. Jen is a leading musical contributor to Now See Hear, with songs in at least two other threads. Surrealist Art prompted Seth Holmes to make a milestone-setting painting.
In case you're wondering why the square on the flowchart looks different for this painting, it's because this painting is the one hundredth piece of art, craft, baking or poetry that's been generated for NSH. Woot woot! Maryland painter/video maker Seth Holmes (a multiple NSH contributor) was inspired to make this painting by Jen Hajj's song Surrealist Art. Thanks for helping us reach this milestone, Seth!
Chrissie Natoli's song Siempre Dos inspired Southern California poet Sandra Moore (Instagram @look.listen.love) to write a poem and make a collage to put it into. Sandra's poetry collage prompted Aireene Espiritu to write the song The Love I Was Looking For.
Sandra Moore's poetry collage inspired Aireene Espiritu to write this song, which we'll have a recording of ASAP. Aireene is a major contributor to NSH; her song Put Back Charlie was used as a seed song, and a song written as part of NSH appears in another thread.
