Words can be just spoken, but notes…sheets…well...
You can tell so much more with music… You can express your emotions without saying a word, and the most important thing is that you have the ability and most of all the right to make the audience feel it!
And when it comes to children…well..it is the most important part in their personal evolution. Feeling the magic!
Hi! My name is Marko Pavlevski. I have graduated in music arts, and mastered in music interpretation and composition, choir conducting.
As I grew older my parents realized that what made my childhood happy was music, so eventually they enrolled me in music primary school where I studied, played and mastered flute. After that it was clear I was going to continue my studies in music in high school and college. I could never really begin or end my day without music. Throughout the years I composed and had preformed my own pieces. I have even published some of them in social media.
As a child I enjoyed watching cartoons. The graphics, but mostly the music just made me sit for hours and stare bewildered by the magic unfolding around me. Music is crucial when it comes to authenticating a scene and making it unforgettable for the audience i.e. the viewers. And when children are the audience... well that's when you have to give them their memories. Being the creator of childhood memories is priceless and awarding. Furthermore, cartoon music brings parents closer to their children. Have you seen the videos where a whole family sings or hums a cartoon song or melody? Simply adorable. Children's first soothers are sounds and melodies sung by their parents...
Do you remember the moment when the Beauty realizes there is something behind the mask of the Beast? When she realizes that love had already happened to her? I remember “Tale as old as time”.
Do you remember Pocahontas' unique way of showing love? I remember на “Colours of the wind”.
And how about Timon, Pubma and the little cub's friendship? I remember “The Lion sleeps tonight”. And “Circle of life” when I actually started realizing that life is really a circle, and we go around. The second my first tears came down my cheeks when I realized that everything there is will come to its end. The moment, when I slowly started to accept I was growing up.
Still, even earlier, maybe Disney's “Silly symphony” taught me to laugh, or “Тwinкle, twinkle little star” taught me to sleep. “When you believe” and “A whole new world” taught me to hope, and “Hakuna matata” to seize the day.
You do get my point, don't you? We may not have the capacity to memorize in details the visual sensations from our childhood, but what we've heard as a nice melody has stayed carved in the gyrus and has been embedded as a perfect basis for our emotional intelligence to flourish.
Knowing the latter, knowing how good music can transfer and above all carve in the messages of the authors of one animated piece, I have a continuous need to become the history of a child. Maybe of my own children. I want to show them through sounds how to fall asleep easily, how to dream better, how to fall in love, how to overcome their pain, how to touch the sky, but at the same time to feel that if they don't believe in it, they will never be able to do it.
According to me, my education and experience so far give a solid basis for me to create something like that. A lot of music lays in my soul. Millions of sounds are waiting to be transformed into music. At the moment, I have the chance to pour it out of my soul, I have the whole concept in my head, I have the image of those who perform it, of those who conduct it and in the end I have the image of those who consume it. The image is wonderful. I don`t ant it to fall apart and disappear in the wind.
Of course, all I need now is a step. A very small one, but crucial for my ideas to become real. Unfortunately, the realization of art has always depended on finance. Nowadays, with the development of technology everybody seems to recourse towards computerization of the idea and one-man-realization, which I really don't like when it comes to music and art.
I believe that beauty of music is multiplied when preformed with real instruments, by real souls, and only with the symbiosis of a bunch of such beautiful energies it can sound the way it was meant to. Big production companies deal with this problem easily. Beside the masterful ideas, they have the team to realize them. I've got the idea, the story, the picture. I miss the team. Engaging an orchestra, vocal performers, space for rehearsals and a production to record it, are the things that exclusively depend on financial means. I don't have it. This is why I am addressing to you. I hope you will live with my words only for a while, you will realize how important it is to me for my dreams to come true and I hope I will earn your trust so I could be free to translate my emotions and my associates to feel them so we can all together create one more beautiful story that will become part of a child's character.
I am well aware of the risks and the challenges, of course. It's what I've been doing in the past few years. But when you love something as much as I love music, there is nothing that can stop you. One way or another, I will reach my goal and I will certainly not let myself down. Earning your trust would mean that you will play my music to your children, and this is where I won't let YOU down. I am devoted to what I have promised to myself and to my colleagues. Our music can bring smiles to children's faces. Good music comes from good heart inspired by good people. Children are my inspiration and there is no bad child. Can you hear my music now?
