Elisapie Isaac: There Will Be Stars

"There will be Stars” is the new work of Inuk singer, composer, filmmaker Elisapie Isaac. This, her first solo recording, is the much anticipated follow up to the internationally acclaimed, award winning duo Taima which she co-founded with guitarist / composer Alain Auger in 2001.

“There will be Stars” is not so much an album as a seduction from somewhere distant, somewhere other worldly. Sometimes full of joy, sometimes lined with melancholy, at times pop, at times folk, at times sung poems from the north - is it Polar pop? Arctic Electric? New cool? Elisapie Isaac was born of an Inuk mother and a Newfoundland father. She was adopted at birth by an Inuit family and was raised in the isolated community Salluit, Nunavik - the Great North.

Twitting Your Path To Enlightenment

Being king of a graphomaniac, the 140 characters allowed by Twitter to express my thoughts seemed at first very frustrating.

When you are used to write long articles without paying any attention to the lenght, starting with Twitter requires a radical change in your writing style.

Wanting to learn from the bests, I starting looking at authors who were famous for their laconic and straight-forward writing styles.

After investigating aphorisms, haikus and other short writing styles, I found a mind blowing concept in the Japanese Zen tradition: the Koan.

Koans are generally questions or statements that are not accessible to rational understanding, but are supposed to trigger enlightenment.

On Twitter, a typical koan would look like:

Zen_Rookie If I haven't anything in my mind, what shall I do?

Zen_Master Throw it out.

Zen_Rookie But if I haven't anything, how can I throw it out?
