The Festival Season Opener: The Santa Teresa Festival and the Power of Love

Written by Sabine Demosthenes
This past weekend was such a nice weekend.
It was something we actually needed with all of the bad news we have been getting and the state of this world lately.
For some of us, we witness this weekend the power of love (I just love Reverand Curry).
For others, they meditate on how we can make this world a better place.

And for the young at heart, they dance the night away at the best music festival on the North Shore of Montreal, the second edition of the Santa Teresa Festival.

I pretended I was still a young twenty-something ingenue this past Sunday; trying to act cool like in my twenties with the young folks but, my age betrays me. I still manage to party like it was still 1999 (my favorite sentence).
The atmosphere was electrical.

Everyone was happy. For a split second, I didn’t think about how the world was falling apart. I must have still been under my “Power of Love Spell”. Festivals like this are good opportunities to discover new talent.
I was impressed with the Mount Kimbie band from the UK, just by seeing the crowd sing along, you could tell Montrealers were enchanted.
In my mid-twenties, I was a die-hard fan of electronic music and synth-pop. Listening to Mount Kimbie made me fall in love with this style of music all over again.

Many others artists were there too: Feist, Charly Bliss, Rose Bush, Milk & Bone, and many more. 
For a small suburban community like The North Shore, they sure know how to get us to groove like there was no tomorrow!

I can’t wait to see round 3 next year!

Maestro Martin

This week Chronicle Maestro is a man that I deeply admire and I fell in love with his work at the end of the year 2006.

He is his father son and he is his own man with a mission. He want us as music lovers to focus on the sound of a recording record with a better musically ears with Sonos.

Giles Martin Sonos

He made us fall in love all over again with Sgt. Pepper remastering is a masterpiece. With his father, he create one of the most visceral, ethereal and imaginative soundtrack of all time for one of the best show I saw in my life. All you need is LOVE..

Father and Son

Giles Martin have the passion for create and orchestrating in the studio music that will be the soundtrack of our lives. And he   want us to hear music as he does hear it at the studio.

I always been very fascinated by the process of making a record. My father had a record shop when I was really young.

At home, my brother and I would spend so many times listening and analyzing a song. A passion was born from the get go.

Always near our favorite instrument

Like me, Giles on a very different scale but parallel learn from the master. Sir George Martin couldn’t be a better professor for Giles and a mentor.

They had such a beautiful father and son chemistry on and off the studio.

I wish one day I could sit down and see this Maestro in action in his musical laboratory.
