“Lulling Charities” by Jennifer Bellor to “Das Ornament des verliebten Herzens” (1919) by Lotte Reiniger

My favorite animated short film 🎞️was created in 1919 by Lotte Reiniger titled “Das Ornament des verliebten Herzens” (The Ornament of the Lovestruck Heart❤️). Ever since I was introduced to it at Eastman back in 2008 for a composition project at the time, I envisioned writing a new piece for it in the future – a song with original lyrics that was inspired by dreams and how we experience love. “Lulling Charities” is one of the first songs I have completed thus far for my new video concept album project. It is also the first piece of mine that utilizes my antique pump organ – harmonium – and toy piano. This project is really special to me because I fell in love with this animation and am really excited to share it! 😍🎵
