Meet Moniker on the Moving Art Season 3 Soundtrack

Now that you’ve had a chance to listen to the sounds of Moving Art Season Three, we’re taking you deeper into the music by interviewing the composers behind each piece.

Here, we sat down with Conrad Wedde, member of the New Zealander trio known as “Moniker,” who created the piece “Ray Of Lights” with its beautiful orchestral synth and driving rhythms.

We discussed the composing process and drawing inspiration from nature.

How did the visual imagery of Moving Art inspire you to create music? How does nature influence your musical work? 

Nature is a very inspirational force, it’s obviously very broad in scope, so in that way it can inspire very big, wide and majestic sounds and in turn can be very intimate and delicate. This Huge dynamism is really inspiring to play with in musical terms. 

What was the process of creating the music for Moving Art like for you? How long did it take? How did you keep the visuals in mind while composing?

I can’t quite recall how long it took, a month or two…We were always working with the visual elements literally front and center, watching as we play and compose. After a while working with a particular scene and it’s range and scope, like mountains or something…you tune into the character of that scene, the weight or lightness, the sense of gentleness or force. These elemental things become what makes up the character of a scene.

Do you believe that the combination of music and natural imagery can have a calming or healing effect? 

Yes, when approached in the right way.

Nature is an extremely healing force in itself, as is music. The art is to have these two elements conversing in an elegant way together, perhaps finding ways that the music can breathe in accordance with the natural imagery.

Nature is the star of the show, so anything musical needs to be in support of this and honoring this as much as possible.

What are your favorite pieces of music or artists that you turn to for inspiration?

Brian Eno is always pretty amazing, especially how his music often seems to complement and be able to breathe with life going in around you.

Heroes of the Local Food Movement

How Else Can We Get Back To Nature?

“We’ve got to get out of the way and let nature heal itself,” said Moving Art filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg on the Practice You podcast, pointing out ways we can change our agriculture practices and make a more sustainable world.

Louie has been covering the rise of community gardens for decades. In these videos, he covers heroes of the local food movement.

In 1977, he created this short film about a city farmstead.

How to Grow Food Indoors

How Can You Get Back To Nature Without Going Outside?

“You can change the world and change your community by growing your own food and becoming sustainable,” said Moving Art filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg in a recent interview.

“You can grow tomatoes on your back porch. You don’t have to grow them far away, have them sprayed, and travel on a truck. You don’t have to use all this fuel and create all this pollution for you to have a tomato on your sandwich.”

The Time For Clean Air is Now

What can we do to heal the earth now?

“We need to reboot and come up with more positive solutions of how to create reconnection,” said Louie Schwartzberg during a recent conversation on the Quarantine Creatives podcast with Heath Racela.

One silver lining to the recent pandemic has been the reduction in air pollution. 

People are beginning to understand how quickly nature can bounce back if we simply cut back on polluting behavior that damages the ecosphere.

More than ever, the time for clean air is now!

The Beauty of the Butterfly: Making the Invisible Visible

Butterflies experience a metamorphosis in order to become the beautiful winged creatures we admire, but we often lose sight of the changes that they experience along the way. This time-lapse butterfly footage is making the invisible visible.

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty,” wrote author and activist Maya Angelou.

For a butterfly, the journey is as important as the destination.

Louie Schwartzberg is a storyteller and filmmaker who has been shooting time-lapse photography of nature, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, non-stop. His work compresses time and put you in sync with different forms of life within our interconnected world.

His work makes the invisible visible. Keeping checking our Making the Invisible Visible series for more time-lapse films.

Louie’s work captures important parts of the journey that organisms like butterflies experience in the natural world. We see the unfettered beauty of the butterfly in the video, but we also see it change from pupa into its adult form.

This sequence captures the scale and scope of the butterfly’s journey and brings the viewer along for the ride.

Butterflies begin their lives as caterpillars, foraging among leaves to grow and mature. When the time is right, they enter the chrysalis stage, undergoing metamorphosis inside of their cocoons.

They emerge as the beautiful fluttering insects we think of them as.

“I’ve spent my life capturing beautiful images,” says Louie. “And whether in wilderness or in the downtown of a giant city, I find connections, universal rhythms, patterns and beauty that I recognize as a part of me, a part of all of us that celebrates life. It’s my great pleasure to share with you that energy which inspires me; this great visual beauty of our world.”

The Truth About Sacred Geometry

The Truth About Sacred Geometry

What is sacred geometry?

Filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg has spent the last four decades capturing nature’s patterns—powerful figures repeated throughout our world. “I’m showing you rhythms and patterns of nature that live inside of every cell of your body,” he said on the Third Wave podcast.

This is the truth about sacred geometry! Sometimes we see patterns in nature, sometimes patterns from nature, or maybe there is nature in patterns we see. Some nature patterns include tree, waves, spirals, stripes, cracks and symmetries.

“The patterns in the mycelial network mirror the pattern that’s in your brain, circulatory system, and nervous system—and in outer space! You’re looking at a mirror, and you’re going, ‘Oh, my God, I recognize this!’ because it makes me feel good. It’s truth,” he said.

Recognizing Nature’s Patterns

You probably know about the Fibonacci sequence, a ratio that results in spiral shapes and which appears throughout the universe, in forms big and small. But there are many beautiful and naturally occurring patterns found in nature, across environments. Some evolved to aid in the dance of pollination between bee and flower, whereas others help animals camouflage. Here are some of the awe-inspiring ways these patterns shape life and the environment on Earth.

Scientists are mystified by some of the simplest patterns, like the hexagonal snowflake. The six-sided pattern that appears in frozen water is consistent across all snowflakes, and yet every individual flake has incredible complexity and individuality. Philip Ball’s book, Patterns in Nature: Why the Natural World Looks the Way It Does, explores these ideas in greater detail and tells the story of historic researchers and their study of natural patterns.

From the savannah to the plains, striped animals have evolved in concert with their environments to aid in their camouflaging efforts. Consider the zebra and the tiger, who rely on their stripes to blend in. It took many years of symbiosis and evolution between animals and biome to result in this highly effective camouflage. These are definitely mysteries of the unseen world!

Patterns are not only limited to animals, but plants, too. Pinecones, pineapples, fiddlehead ferns, and galaxies all manifest a spiral-shape pattern as they grow and expand. When a plant grows in a spiral pattern, it allows each new growth to have shared access to the life-giving sunshine. When plants and flowers follow specific growth patterns, it helps bees identify them based on leaf arrangement. Many flowers have specifically evolved in their environments alongside their pollinators, such as hummingbirds, to enable their beaks to access the nectar.

Ball’s book originated from his deep respect for and admiration of natural patterns. “When we make patterns, it is because we planned it that way, putting the elements into place. In nature, there is no planner, but somehow natural forces conspire to bring about something that looks quite beautiful,” he notes.

Where have you found the truth of sacred geometry?

Interconnection Meditation

How often have you run into a friend coming around a corner at the exact moment in time to intersect with you?

“This cannot be a coincidence, for each moment is exactly as it should be,” says Moving Art filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg in a short film about friendship. These are called synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences that we can use as guideposts in our lives.

Use this visual meditation to reflect on these moments of synchronicity in your life!

Meditation expert Sharon Salzberg brings decades of meditation experience to the table to teach people how to focus by staying still while in motion in their busy lives.

“Consider for a moment who all has been in any way involved in your being here in this room right now watching this online,” she asks people in her interconnectedness meditation.

“We’re here because of relationships, encounters, connection. So, who all comes to mind? This moment is actually like a confluence of all that interaction, all those connections, as is every moment. We might feel so alone and so apart, but the truth is our lives are embedded in this greater fabric.”

Sharon currently offers guided meditations, courses and retreats in nature where it is easier to unwind and connect to the seasons.

Her wisdom helps bring guidance on many subjects including working through thoughts, finding compassion and kindness, as well as working with the breath through activity-based meditations.

In her upcoming book, Real Change, Sharon shares practical advice on how to embody the fundamental principles of mindfulness and loving-kindness meditation to create a better world for all.

Invisible Visible: Flower Power

“Beauty and seduction, I believe, are nature’s tool for survival, because we will protect what we fall in love with,” says filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg.

“Always take time to smell the flowers, and let it fill you with beauty, and rediscover that sense of wonder. Nature’s beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude.”

Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on flowers.

We walk by flowers every day. We think they’re static, but they’re not. 

They just exist in a different metabolic rate than our own. Every living creature or plant has its own metabolic rate.

To a redwood tree that lives 500 years, we look like time-lapse ants just scurrying around! To a mosquito sitting on your arm, we look like giants moving in slow motion.

Louie Schwartzberg is a storyteller and filmmaker who has been shooting time-lapse photography of nature, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, non-stop. His work compresses time and put you in sync with different forms of life within our interconnected world.

His work makes the invisible visible. 

By seeing nature at this scale, we learn how to appreciate the fullness and richness of time. You can see how every minute of your life is full of tremendous potential.

Even though your life changes with each new decade, you can follow nature’s spirit of resilience and collaboration.

“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars,” wrote Victor Hugo in his famous novel, Les Misérables.

He saw great power and promise in flowers, a shift in consciousness that can change everything.

We Are All Connected

“Let’s value what’s really most important. This interconnection between us is what makes the world go round,” said Moving Art director Louie Schwartzberg in an interview during The Harmonic Convergence.

“We need for our economy, and we need it for our mental health. Once you understand how everything is connected, you are going to care about everybody and everything. That’s what we all need to flourish together as one big family.”

When did you realize we are all connected? Nature’s patterns are one way to receive this cosmic revelation.

The Fibonacci sequence, or the Golden Ratio, is a naturally occurring pattern that creates a spiral. It is found everywhere from ferns and nautilus shells to galaxies, and has inspired a generation of artists and scientists to study our interconnected nature. 

This Phenomenal Life

In her new This Phenomenal Life: The Amazing Ways We Are Connected with Our Universe, author Misha Maynerick Blaise takes readers on a fantastical but entirely factual journey through nature, where everyone and everything is connected.

“Every single atom of our body is made of remnants of stars and massive explosions in the galaxies, and we share the same biochemical basis of life with all living beings on Earth, from a single-celled amoeba to a giant blue whale,” Blaise writes.

Each page is brimming with hand-drawn images, vibrant colors, and perfectly crafted facts that stick in your mind for days.

One page proclaims in delightfully swooping font, “A single scoop of soil contains more species of fungi, protozoa, and bacteria than there are plants and vertebrate animals in all of North America.”

Ranging from galactic facts about stardust to the microbial clouds that surround every human being, Blaise presents a vision of harmony that asks readers to see the world in a new way. 

With stunningly unique illustrations and pithy captions that will blow your mind, This Phenomenal Life offers a portal into greater connectedness with nature. Blaise is working at the height of her creativity, combining an incredibly engaging visual style with educational value that readers of all ages can enjoy.

““When we understand our total interconnection with nature and other humans, it will be easy to adopt policies and lifestyles that promote the well-being of the Earth and its citizens,” she writes, reminding us of the profound connection we all share.

Including diverse depictions of human life, and uplifting the sacred connections between all living things, This Phenomenal Life is exactly the kind of book we need right now.

Autumn Peltier Defends Our Water

Autumn Peltier is a Canadian Native American water warrior who has fought for water protection and conservation since the age of eight.

In 2008 she spoke to the United Nations in New York, declaring, “Water is the lifeblood of Mother Earth. Our water should not be for sale. We all have a right to this water as we need it.”

For three years in a row, she was nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize. As a member of the Wikwemikong First Nation, Peltier is particularly focused on protecting the Anishinaabe water systems and indigenous lands. 

“We need to protect the water today, because the longer we wait, the sicker the plants and animals get,” she once said. “If we wait until tomorrow or the next day, the water won’t be the same as that day – in one month or one year, the water gets more and more contaminated. Water is the blood of Mother Earth. Everything is connected.”

Peltier spoke alongside Greta Thunberg in 2020 at the Davos World Economic Forum, criticizing politicians for their inaction on the climate crisis. As we celebrate Water Quality Month this August, Peltier stands out as a leading voice from Canada with a strong devotion to water and water quality.

As a water leader, Peltier is steadfast in her commitment to pressuring politicians to protect water from pollution, which includes pipelines. She points out that boil-water advisories have been issued in many indigenous communities due to the poisoning effects of pipelines on the water table. 

Events like the Davos Summit and commissions on sustainable development are powerful opportunities to advocate directly to the people in power. But Peltier also knows that making change in your own backyard is powerful, too.

Peltier is part of the vanguard of young voices taking the lead in environmental activism, from Flint, Michigan to her home near Lake Huron. Indigenous communities are frequently on the front line of climate violence, but all too often they are excluded from mainstream environmental activism.

Peltier’s role in the movement has helped bring public awareness to the effects of pollution and irresponsible policies on indigenous communities in Canada and beyond.

The Shift in Consciousness We Need Now

“Mushrooms can shift your consciousness and make you feel this ultimate connection with all living things on the planet,” said Fantastic Fungi director Louie Schwartzberg.

“That’s the shift of consciousness we need right now, to care about everybody and everything. This interconnection between us is what makes the world go round. We need for our economy and we need it for our mental health.”

Celebrate the release of Fantastic Fungi on Apple TV and watch the rest of Louie’s conversation from The Harmonic Convergence, a 10-day meditation to drive a global shift in consciousness.

Are You Part of the 17%?

Now more than ever, humans live separately from nature. Our food systems are limited to grocery store shelves and the occasional farmer’s market. We might get out for a hike every once in a while, or do some yoga when we’re feeling stressed. But the feeling of dissociation from self and others is all too common.

Enter author Daniel Grauer.

A writer, researcher, and organizer based in the Catskills, Grauer has been passionately exploring the relationship between plants and human consciousness for years. His research on sacred medicine and collective transformation has led to one major revelation—legalization of psilocybin therapy could cause a global shift in consciousness.

“If we legalize and integrate psychedelics into our culture through rituals and guidelines, we benefit from an estimated 17% of our future adult population having a unifying experience,” writes Grauer in his new book, Psychedelic Consciousness: Plant Intelligence for Healing Ourselves and Our Fragmented World.

“If this same 17 percent—of the national and eventually global adult population—then cultivated such a unifying experience through a daily practice of meditation or yoga, it should provide enough momentum to help us navigate the crossroads and shift from an unnatural ideology of fragmentation to a natural ideology of unity.”

Grauer’s new book explores the very nature of consciousness and the role that natural tools and practices can play in bringing individuals into harmony with systems. The book covers historic uses of sacred medicine and goes a step further, pointing out how safe access to transformative mental experiences could become the building block of a better future.

Psychedelic Consciousness looks at how natural plants and fungi can help us re-establish a lost ideology of unity. Interdisciplinary in nature, readers will be treated to a diverse array of well-researched tools and practices that can help transform individual consciousness.

Covering yoga, meditation, sacred plants, and psychedelic fungi, Grauer’s book is a hopeful and inspiring ode to connection in an age of disconnection.

With the right tools and the right mindset, Grauer offers up a path for finding symbiosis with nature. Tapping into the zeitgeist, Psychedelic Consciousness is a balm to every weary individualist who is ready to come back into balance and feel the unity inherent to all life.

Poetry and Water Meditation

Director Louie Schwartzberg has been exploring our waterways with his camera for more than four decades, showing us the healing power of Visual Healing with water imagery.

Millions of viewers around the world have relaxed with Louie’s very first episode of his Moving Art series, “Oceans.”  

A few years ago, he created this gorgeous ocean meditation he made for the organization, 1% for the Planet.

Sweet Water Poetry

As we celebrate National Water Quality Awareness Month this August, we also highlight the voices of artists around the world who lead the way towards clean water for all.

Water is not only an element necessary to survival on Earth, but it is the substance that connects all beings to one another. Across geographic distances, across species, and across time, water connects us all.

Sweet Water: Poems for the Watersheds is a brand new poetry anthology that gathers the voices of poets from across Canada, the US and the UK who have written work inspired by water. “Bottled, clouded, held in rain, in river, estuary, and lake, sweet water is the planet’s life force and the poets here examine it from every angle,” states the editorial page.

In Laurie D. Graham’s poem “Antler River,” the juxtaposition between humanity’s reverence and disdain for nature is stark. The excerpt below speaks to the delicately fraught relationship between the humans and birds that share access to the river:

“Mallards and their escaped domestic kin and the bright,

rasping horns of Canada geese in false spring, in glacier-

turquoise water. Hundreds and hundreds of sharps sinking

into the banks.”

In this excerpt from “Parts Per Billion,” Canadian writer Joe Zucchiatti meditates on the generational differences in how his family handles water treatment in rural Ontario:

“the living water,

my uncle proclaims proudly, defiantly,

as if purified water

was only for sissies,

and impurity and pollution

somehow nutritious”

Solveig Adair, a scientist, teacher, and writer, contributes her poem entitled “Grandmother River.” The excerpt below calls into consciousness the oneness of all life, even after death:

before she died she

knelt in the river and when

I blinked there was no

distinction between her and

the water             body

fed by veins and arteries

wild as water returning

always to the heart

Some writers contribute odes to the creatures who inhabit swamps, whereas others meditate on the destruction of waterways and the future of Earth’s ecosystems. As an anthology, this collection is the perfect way to honor National Water Quality Awareness Month.

It offers the special gift of presenting diverse and international experiences with different bodies of water, calling readers to engage with its themes and be moved into action.

Why You Should Start a Gratitude Journal

“When you experience wonder and you’re in the moment, you feel the divine. And what that does is engender gratitude,” said Louie Schwartzberg.

Scientific studies show that being in nature reduces stress, anxiety, and worry while improving focus, creativity, and sense of connection.

Watch this simple meditation from Moving Art, and start making a list of everything you are grateful for…

The Science of Gratitude

A study out of the University of California, Riverside, reported that grateful people experience more optimism, joy, enthusiasm, and other positive emotions, and they have a deeper appreciation for life’s simple pleasures.

These researchers also found that by expressing gratitude for people in your life, like a friend or romantic partner, you can report higher levels of satisfaction in relationships. The most intriguing fact to come out of this study though was that gratitude is a skill that can be learned and nurtured, much like perfecting your Grandmother’s secret recipe.

One of the best ways to practice gratitude is by journaling. This exercise helps you develop a greater appreciation for the good in your life. In fact, people who routinely express gratitude enjoy better health and greater happiness. The best part—there is no right or wrong way to keep a gratitude journal.

We recommend starting out with writing 15 minutes per day, at least once per week for at least two weeks. Soon you’ll figure out what works best for you and discover the impact on your happiness level.

Starting a Gratitude Journal

What you give attention to will grow. Gratitude journaling is a powerful, research-backed practice that can bring more health and happiness into your life. You don’t have to do it every day. In fact, some studies show that three times per week is more effective than daily. But you do have to do it regularly to see results.

Here’s how you can create a gratitude journaling practice.

Start by choosing a place to store your gratitude observations. It can be a computer file or a handwritten journal. Make sure it’s an easy place to access so that it’s easier for you to sit down and write.

Now try to think of five things you are grateful for. The key to gratitude journaling is to be as specific as possible. Depth is more important than breadth. Write about the full experience. If someone gave you a gift, write about why it was important to you. Write about how it felt to receive it.

If you get stuck thinking of five things, try to imagine what your life would be like in the absence of something. For instance, you could be grateful for clean water or your pet or the tree outside your window that shelters you from the sun. Try replaying your day in your head and thinking about what you took for granted. You can be grateful for the mug that held your tea or the socks on your feet. Don’t overlook simple things.

One final tip: try not to repeat anything in future entries. It’s okay to mention the same person or thing, but try to note the specific experience that made you feel grateful. Maybe you noticed the artistry of the mug and how smooth it felt in your hand. Perhaps you noticed your friend’s gentle and supportive nature, and not just their cleverness in selecting a gift for you.

You can expect lots of benefits from gratitude journaling, including a more optimistic mood, better sleep, and a generally positive outlook on life.

Artists Defend Our Water

“Beauty is nature’s tool for survival, because we protect what we love,” Louie Schwartzberg once said. He has created many powerful short films to encourage humanity to defend our waterways and keep our water pure.

August is National Water Quality Awareness Month, so start protecting what you love by watching this short film from Louie and the spoken word artist IN-Q.

Artists & Leaders Team Up

Louie and IN-Q made that short film for the One Drop Foundation whose projects have touched lives in 13 different countries and improved the living conditions of more than 2.1 million people.

This month, water leaders around the world are leading the way toward clean water for all with innovative solutions to raising public awareness. Through artists like Louie and IN-Q, they can spread a change in consciousness.

The number one problem faced by water leaders is how to make water issues more accessible and approachable to the public. They needed ways to quickly illustrate the dire crisis of public water systems.

Artists have risen to the challenge with murals, photographs, and other public art that challenges passersby to get involved.

Artwork Around the Country

In Santa Cruz, California, ecologically inspired murals have appeared on the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The art features ocean creatures like fish, whales, octopi, and egrets. Visitors to the site can enjoy the beautiful artwork while learning about the fauna that inhabits the ocean in Santa Cruz’s backyard.

In San Jose, California, artist Robert Dawson has created a series of works that document local water treatment plants. His photographs capture the complexity of the systems that treat public water. Dawson’s vision is that his artwork can help educate the public about water treatment facilities.

The City of Santa Monica treats and recycles urban runoff with a facility designed by artist Richard Turner. In his artist’s statement, Turner notes that “one of the most extraordinary things about this project is that the city wanted to showcase the process rather than hide it away.” The facility includes diagrams and viewing platforms that allow visitors to witness water treatment firsthand.

Even cities located away from the ocean are using art to highlight water issues. The City of Ames in Iowa is running a public art contest to solicit engagement and creative contributions from the community about the role of water. Artists and water leaders working together can create more engaging campaigns for the public.

Every Friendship Is a Cosmic Connection

How will you celebrate World Friendship Day? For this holiday, people around the world celebrate friends both near and far. It’s an especially important holiday during this transformative moment in history.

Even though many of us are separated right now, we need to remember the friends who bind us together. They are part of our human mycelial network, and we support each other across distances.

Who do you miss the most right now? Take a moment to think about your friends around the world. Then watch this 30-second meditation from Louie, reminding us of the cosmic connections that make a single friendship possible.

Connecting to the Oneness of Nature

“Mother Nature is the ultimate teacher,” said Moving Art director Louie Schwartzberg. “Filming nature has always been the thing that makes me connect with the divine, makes me feel connected to the Oneness.”

Louie spoke about his career and his connection to nature in a podcast interview with Dr. Lauren Macdonald on The Holistic Healing Project. “You see these repeated patterns over and over in nature,” continued Louie.

“Whether it’s the grain or a piece of rock, or the nebula in deep space or the mycelial network, or the neurons in your brain—they all look the same. Connecting with that universal truth is what I love to do. I’m making the invisible visible.”

Sleep Meditation with Moving Art

“This is one of the greatest pieces of entertainment on Netflix,” wrote one fan of Louie Schwartzberg’s Moving Art, testifying to the power of visual art to help them unwind.

“It generates a very tranquil atmosphere, and rekindles awe in nature that many of us have forgotten. I regularly watch this when I am trying to relax or sleep, and it brings me into a great mental state each and every time.”

If you need to sleep, visual imagery can provide the perfect solution. It works for adults and kids, and parents have even seen great results with the youngest viewers! 

“I love the Moving Art Series on Netflix, and so does my toddler,” wrote one parent. “I would put it on and he would quiet down and fall asleep. My son would hear the opening strains of ‘Flowers’ and immediately stop crying.”
