Inspired Music Video Captures Essence Of August Total Solar Eclipse


Path of Totality: Eclipse 2017

Got 5 minutes and 24 seconds? Treat yourself to a wonderful slide show set to music inspired by the August 21st total eclipse by David Fogel. Dave’s an amateur astronomer, musician and composer who lives in La Jolla, California. We’ve been corresponding for the past few months about everything from eclipses to jazz. After he saw the total solar in Rexburg, Idaho, he composed the piece and then worked with Joe Woolbright of Sparta, Illinois, who took still images of the entire eclipse, to create the video.

The composition is lovely, and the music and photos mesh so well, I think you’ll be touched. Enjoy.
