Musical Monday: Shara Worden

Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) is just lovely. I had the pleasure of hearing her preform this past summer in a piece composed by David Lang at the Bang on a Can music festival. In looking for videos to share with you all I learned that she is also a native Arkansan like myself. Fun fact.

Be sure to take the time to learn about Shara and some of her collaborations with other artists. I especially love how she seems to encompass so many different art-forms into her pieces and videos. And the modern twist she has on the orchestral arrangements in her work. Her work is just so different than most anything else I have heard. Be sure to check out Y-Music as well (they partner with Shara on a lot of things). She is quite inspiring.

This is the piece we were able to hear at Ban on a Can

  1. Love Shara! Fun fact: Mark did a music video for her as a side project in college. I can't remember all the details of how it worked out, but she asked a bunch of no-names like Mark who were interested to create videos for remixes of her songs. It was a cool experience and something he really enjoyed.

    1. Can't get enough of her Caryn! Maybe you guys will be able to see more of her in your city now. :-) And that is so cool! I love that. And sometimes those "no-names" deliver the best product! -Alison
