Active Child is the ultimate bearer of beautiful music, and its purpose on this earth will never be questioned. My insides fluttered with excitement when I saw a new AC track shining through my SoundCloud stream. After a post-SXSW week of flu, I needed this magic to break me back into humanity.
“Evening Ceremony” comes from the soundtrack to the upcoming film adaption of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. Pat Grossi’s angelic falsetto alone could carry a song with a minimal background, but it’s only a hand finding yours in a heavenly world. The melodic pull of the harp strikes the heart from the outside, a welcome breeze reminding you that you’re hardly a solid mass. The power of beauty doesn’t subdue; the percussion awakens the mind, and the final result, a serendipitous layering of electronica carried by Grossi’s voice, penetrates the soul from all possible paths.
Hopefully, Active Child will be releasing a soundtrack of his own soon. Follow the magical music man on Facebook or SoundCloud.
