Nahre Sol is a young Korean/American musician/artist living in Toronto, Canada. I found a video of hers yesterday and was blown away.
She is performing classical pianist/composer, a quirky visual artist and an engaging communicator. She has lots of content on her youtube channel, and I’m working my way through it all at the moment. The video I found yesterday is part of a series of videos where she studies the style/techniques of a composer/genre to identify core elements which she uses to create an original piece based on something well-known.
Below is the video I watched ‘How to sound like Debussy’. Now I listen to quite a lot of Debussy but hearing her clarify key aspects of his piano music so elegantly alongside the visuals was quite special to see…and then her final composition ‘Happy Birthday in the style of Debussy’… gorgeous music.
I even bought the sheet music from her shop for $32 HKD. Got to support people like this!
If you’re creative and into music, you can’t not subscribe to her youtube channel. Inspirational.
