Blue Planet

Blue Planet is a 4:17 minute multimedia digital experience (photo, film, music, sound effects, lyrics) designed as a short piece on the environmental crisis.

It is a part of a longer collection of sound and visual narratives composed and performed by author-musician Anne E. Witte (Pseudonym “Rosewood Music”), including 8 musical/visual stories, each related to the passage of time. Blue Planet is essentially a vocal and keyboard ballad, emphasizing the “time is running out” theme on a background of inspirational photo, video and painting.

The musical signature of this mature singer/songwriter features mezzo-soprano vocals and choirs on piano-based compositions, set against symphonic orchestrations and cinematic soundscapes. Crossing genre (pop, jazz, contemporary, electronic and classical music), the style seeks a universal appeal crossing age groups and cultures.

Blue Planet was professionally mixed and mastered in the Brooklyn studio “Wave Labs”. Each individual song has been copyrighted with the US Copyright Office and has its own SCC account registered in France.

Interested in multi-media art, she composes, arranges and records all her own music and then conceptualizes a visual story with the lyrics in subtitles in English for viewers and listeners. Holding a Ph.D. in French Language, Literature and Civilization earned in New York City and a second doctoral degree combining calendar study and anthropology earned at the Sorbonne in Paris, she is the author of an eclectic list of peer reviewed materials published in France and in the U.S. ranging from cross cultural psychology, language, cultural traditions, literature and teacher training.
