Barcelona based pianist and composer Juan Sánchez has started uploading a series of videos on his YouTube channel showcasing nature scenery with his music playing in the background. Each video is related to one type of nature scenery (i.e: oceans, mountains, skies, etc..) while one of his compositions is playing in the background.
Juan says that images can deepen our emotional response to music, they are part of our visual language — a significant part of the culture of our consumption of music, art, and entertainment and they are also a great way to spend five minutes in the afternoon.
The idea behind this series of videos is that while Juan Sánchez gets a chance to get his music heard by a wider audience, he also provides listeners with beautiful landscapes of our natural world in the hope to awaken a sense of awe and appreciation for our earth. In his own words:
“Our natural world is alive with beauty and wonder. It is important for our peace of mind and our enthusiasm for life to love the world we live in and care for the earth and all living things. I hope that these videos will awaken a sense of awe and appreciation for our earth so that we can live in greater harmony with it.”
