This is not something that I do very often, but I came across something last night which I found quite interesting and inspiring.
Whilst having a browse through archive.org I stumbled across some amazing instrumental music which had been inspired by the writings of Edgar Allan Poe.
After having a listen, I decided (as you do) to check out the composer, only to discover that they have produced a whole host of cd material inspired by a range of writers and themes.
Even better, all of the music has been uploaded as free downloads under creative license which is both incredibly generous and a wonderful, inspirational resource.
So far I have only managed to listen to a small fraction of the music available, but if you are either looking for inspiration or just interested to see how someone else has interpreted some ‘dark’ writing, then I would recommend that you check out the following link. Happy listening!
