Church bells were ringing when Lucy had woken up. Slightly startled, and even more slightly confused she found herself sitting up straight. She frowned, not knowing where the ringing came from. After all, the nearest church was over a mile away. She looked at her alarm, and saw it was only midnight. Shaking her head, and deciding it must have been a dream, she laid down again and tried to fall back asleep. Still, she felt uneasy. She had the feeling several pairs of eyes were watching her every breath. She held her new necklace in her hand, a gift from her grandmother, and steadied her breath.
‘It’s absolutely nothing’, she mumbled. ‘Keep yourself together Lucy.’ She closed her eyes, started to doze off when…
It took some time, to get used to my new place, but finally, after a year, it began to feel as home.
The white room in which I laid had finally started to become familiar. I began to recognize the cracks in the walls, the way the sunlight shone on the floor. I became familiar with the shadows painted on the walls.
My home consisted of only one room, my room. It was quite large and white. The only furniture in the room was a bed. In one of the corners of the ceiling there was a speaker that played music during the day. The door was yellow, and was made of iron.
Vocalise, played on piano by Sam Bakker. Vocals done by Luna Hamelink and Mechy Janssen. Trumpet also done by Mechy Janssen. Music originally by Rachmaninov, lyrics ‘A dream within a dream’ by Edgar Allan Poe. Played live on 10/12/2018 in the Oosterpoort.
Dit nummer was een echte uitdaging! Enorm uit mijn comfortzone, en dat voor een publiek van 500 man. Ik ben erg blij met het resultaat! We kregen een 9 als cijfer voor ons examen!
De tekst zoals wij deze gebruikt hebben bij het repeteren en opvoeren van dit nummer is hieronder te vinden. Oorspronkelijk “A dream within a dream” door Edgar Allan Poe .
This song, composed by Sam Bakker and written by me, Luna Hamelink is inspired by Andrew Lloyd’s Webber musical The Phantom of the Opera, and the novel written by Gaston Leroux. We performed this in the Oosterpoort, for our music exam, on 10/12/18.
It was nice to do this performance with Sam Bakker, we worked really hard on this, and it was quite a success!
