The masks representing the dichotomies of comedy and tragedy derive from ancient Greek Theater. These symbols of drama date back to the 5th century B.C. and contain exaggerated expressions so audience members could decipher the emotions of the actors even in stadiums holding thousands. These days, modern technologies provide us with up close and personal views of dramatic footage. This week’s new releases from the Liftmusic library demonstrate the happy and sad faces of the human condition and act as a musical mask enhancing the action. The larger than life sounds of LIFT051 Jake’s Space Dust blend hipster culture with laid back slacker anthems to create a cool and easy vibe. No worries, it’s all good dude! LIFT052 Arcadia dares you to embrace life in its fullest form. With clean and refreshing motifs, these tracks feel like an invigorating swim in the ocean on a scorching Summer day. LIFT053 Too Much Booty is the soundtrack to the party of the year! These good time Urban tinged songs of celebration allow you to let it all hang out. LIFT054 English Drama wears the mask of tragedy exposing the skeletons in the closet or dark memories that haunt the heroine. Mysterious piano and lush string orchestrations set the somber tone. These tracks are bound to give your project the dramatic Lift it needs!
