Easter in Modern Multimedia Perspective


SoundEagle and Easter
Easter in Perspective

Regardless of your level of religiosity or secularity, irrespective of the complex origins and unresolved questions about Easter, and in spite of the ongoing interplay of commerce, tradition and mythology, SoundEagle hopes that you have had many wonderful, joyous and meaningful moments during Easter holidays in the past, present and future, and that you have already begun to find inventive ways to celebrate or commemorate this annual occasion with not just Easter bunnies, chicks and chocolate eggs, but also less materialistic pursuits that convey, reveal, encourage or highlight certain spiritual, historical, artistic and/or retrospective dimensions.

The pluralistic experiences offered to you right here in this entertaining multimedia post comprise beautiful presentations of Text Art, Photos, Videos, Computer & Web Graphics, as well as Games and Animations, many instances of which exemplify the malleability, permeability and cross-fertilisation of ideas and cultures, whose fecundity, fluidity and visibility are often facilitated and enhanced by potent rendering tools and social media.

Under these scenarios, Easter has increasingly become a creative, thematic conduit through which fusion, experimentation, appropriation and transformation flow, and where reinterpreting, repurposing, recycling and reinventing can freely combine contrasting or opposing elements from the real and the imaginative, the mundane and the exotic, as well as the secular and the religious, the artistic and the scientific. Not surprisingly, many traditionally straightforward hobbies and hitherto simple pastimes have taken on more heterogeneous characteristics as they intermingle with other domains and interests, becoming more infused with the purviews of other fields and disciplines.

For example, those of you who are interested, inspired and creatively inclined may gather your favourite and most attractive (flowering) plants, bring them indoor or outdoor to enliven a particular space or corner by decorating and/or surrounding them with Easter gifts, souvenirs, memorabilia, jewellery, decor(ations), ornaments, plush toys and so on. Take photos or videos, then process and upload them to your choice of social media or social group, such as the Queensland Orchid International Facebook Group as a way of celebrating Easter in a modern multimedia perspective.

Orchids in Perspectives

SoundEagle would like to belatedly invite all of you to celebrate Christmas and New Year with this multimedia post containing some impressive Orchid Christmas Trees, Computer & Web Graphics, Games & Animations, a thoughtful Poem and Season Greetings.

This relatively new and multifaceted website explores the world of orchids through a multitude of perspectives pertaining not only to gardening, botany, horticulture, art, craft, decor, culture, social media, photography, festival, event, history and research, but also to the myriad details of personal stories and human senses, unfolding across the generative processes and intersubjective journeys of discovering, appreciating and preserving the beauty and diversity of orchids, as manifested throughout people’s relationships with their plants, hobbies, professions and surroundings.

It is hoped that some of the offerings on this website can also serve as a bridge, conduit or crossing between the East and the West, between the laypersons and the experts, between the proven and the experimental, between the old data and the new findings, between the documented and the anecdotal, by way of judicious translation, edification, promotion and dissemination of information pertaining to the long cultures and traditions that have accompanied certain orchids and their ardent champions through the dynamic synergy of various pursuits and domains, including science, art, literature, poetry, gardening and horticulture.

Click on the following images to visit the corresponding parts of the Queensland Orchid International website.

Merry Christmas Queensland Orchid International

On this website you will find some of the best orchid species and cultivars from avid growers in Queensland, Australia and the Whole World.

Chinese New Year Celebration, Spring Festival, Flying Eagle, Galloping Horses and Annual Surplus 鷹飛馬騰, 年年有餘

Chinese New Year 中國農曆新年

SoundEagleSoundEagle wishing you a prosperous Chinese New Year of the Horse 馬 and a Happy New Year 2014 with Annual Surplus 年年有餘

Hello! SoundEagle is back in action here after a fairly long hiatus. The Year 2013 is farewelled by SoundEagle with a special post entitled Cosmos in Perspective: Scaling the Universe with Interactive Infographics, Film, Animation and Slideshow. In contrast, the Year 2014 is welcomed with a festive, eclectic post laden with multimedia and multitudinousness, including games, video and music as well as numerous season greetings and best wishes conveyed to you in Chinese.

May you have hours of fun and enjoyment!

Chinese New Year of 2014 begins on the 31st of January and ends on the 14th of February, the Valentine’s Day. This double celebration represents a culmination of the Eastern Culture (emphasizing Relationship and Kinship 關係和親情) meeting and amalgamating with the Western Culture (emphasizing Romance and Love 浪漫和愛情). It provides a good indicator and macrocosmic example of the increased intensification and extensive interpenetration of economic, social and cultural practices and relations as globalization continues to expand in the 21st century. Specifically, this can be both seen and heard in the dynamic results of musical hybridisations and cross-cultural collaborations, as the following musical performances demonstrate:

新年快樂萬事如意得心應手
財源廣進恭喜發財合家幸福

在此祝大家

前程似錦,光芒萬丈
金馬奔騰,龍馬精神
馬到成功,馬年更壯
日日月月年年皆如意
朝朝暮暮時時獲財運
風風雨雨季季笑顏開

Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the first day of the year of the Chinese calendar. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year’s Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. Since the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”. The Chinese New Year Day is always between January 20 to February 20 of the Gregorian calendar each year.

Special Poem &
❄ Snowflakes ❅

I have a list of folks I know all written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time I go and take a look.
And that is when I realize that these names are of a part,
Not of the book in which they’re written, but of my very heart.

❄ ❅ ❆

Each name stands for someone who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they’ve become the rhythm of the rhyme.
And while it sounds fantastic of me to make this claim,
I really feel that I’m composed of each remembered name.

❄ ❅ ❆

And while you may not be aware of any special link,
Just meeting you has shaped my life more than you can think.
For once you’ve met somebody, those years they can’t erase,
The memories of a pleasant word or of a friendly face.

❄ ❅ ❆

So never think that my Christmas greeting is just a mere routine,
Of names upon a Christmas list forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas greeting that is addressed to you,
It’s because you’re on that list of folks whom I am indebted to.

❄ ❅ ❆

For I’m but a total of the many ones I’ve met,
And you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget.
And whether I’ve known you for many years or few,
In some way you had a part in shaping things I do.

❄ ❅ ❆

So every year when Christmas comes, I realize anew,
The biggest gift that life can give is meeting someone like you.
And may the spirit of Christmas that forever and ever endures,
Leave its richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.

❄ ❅ ❆

Many variations and adaptations exist.

      Happy new year to Erik and all the team members at the Sound and Colour Vibration Society!

      SoundEagle is new to your blog and has had the opportunity to peruse the more recent posts and to audition some musical clips, and would like to congratulate the society on the range and quality of your endeavours and results. What wonderful ways and platforms you have managed to deploy in order to convey to readers and audiences the rich diversity of music, film and art! The society ought to be highly commended for being sufficiently comprehensive in your coverage of contemporary cultures and genres, and for sharing the visions and oeuvres of musicians, film makers and artists so attentively on this collective blog.

      Looking forward, SoundEagle hopes that the Sound and Colour Vibration Society continues to do very well in various domains and to excel in whatever new trappings and features to be implemented and released in 2013 and beyond, as the society strives towards being synergistically challenged and enriched by the aim of bringing forth more abiding innovations and quality representations, even venturing into new formats and styles with unfettered enthusiasms.
