WATCH: New Music Video Written and Performed by CMU Students
There's a new music video on YouTube, and this one comes right out of Grand Junction. Colorado Mesa University students combined their musical and visual skills to write and produce "Nature of Vibration."
Dr. Darin Kamstra, the new head of the Department of Music at CMU, recently shared this video via his Facebook page. According to Kamstra, members of the CMU combos joined forces with CMU Mass Communications major Logan Mikolai to compose, perform, and produce this selection.
Music was composed by CMU music major Cal Lindberg, with lyrics by CMU music major Nick Carozza. Lindberg also performed all audio editing and mixing. In case you're wondering, that is Nick Carozza in the shopping cart.
Here's a breakdown of the lyrics for "Nature of Vibration":
Let me paint a lyrical image
Speaking on the microphone is a privilege
Imagine 21st century education
Where you can study the nature of vibration
The ability to play in complete relaxation
Imagine what’d you’d learn before graduation
Music needs a solid foundation
Harmony, rhythm, and a little flirtation
Speaking of rhythm louder doesn’t mean faster
You really gotta skate if you wanna wear thrasher
At CMU you can start the next chapter
Your artistic questions, they demand answers
At CMU you can learn from the masters
My buddy Tim Emmons, and Dr. Kamstra
Tim played Friday the 13th no lies
If you’ve seen em then you know Jason never dies
Okay, I'm familiar with Tim Emmons, a faculty member at CMU, but I don't fully understand the Friday the 13th reference. I'll look into it and get back to you.
Well done, CMU music students. The video is awesome. The performance is excellent, too. I'm looking forward to future projects.
