Some time ago I watched an episode of The Simpsons. There was some incidental music playing during the show and I watched the closing credits closely to see what it was. All I could catch was the composer - Camille Saint-Saens. I recognized the name. But danged if I could figure out the title of the piece.
About two months ago I watched a PBS Nature show about the Seahorse. And, guess what? Yep, the same music was playing, only this time the music wasn't credited at all, Crap!
Then, a few weeks ago, I caught the same Simpsons episode and this time I saw the title of the piece. It came from a longer work called, "Carnival of the Animals", and the piece I was enraptured by was called, "Aquarium".
I knew I had to use it on a video. So I spent some time hunting down the 2-and-a-half minute piece of music, then went looking for images to use. The music would work with so many images: rainfall, waterfalls, streams, spooky scenes, and so on. But I finally decided to go with Underwater images, and ... Seahorses. Why not, right?
So using Photo Story 3 for Windows I put this little video together. And I like it! Oh, I'm sure I could have done better with it, but, we're not really editing here, are we? Hah!
Now I've had problems with Blogger and video uploads, so this may not work. But if it does, enjoy. 2:30 of images and haunting, bitter-sweet music.
Sit back and relax, Folks. Here is benning's version of "Seahorses".
