“the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.”
When I discover something I appreciate or admire, I like to share it with others. So today, I share Bedouine’s Solitary Daughter.
Recently, I heard this song, this artist, Bedouine, on the radio. I marveled over the synergy of her voice, the lyrics, the music–all coming together to create this work of art–a song. As the words take me into the story of her song, her hypnotic voice entrances while the music gives the song wings.
Synergy is an interesting concept…reminiscent of the old adage “…the whole is greater than the sum of its parts…” While Bedouine has a beautiful voice, while the music itself is lovely, while the words (story) are engaging…their effect when combined feels whole and inextricably bound to create the perfect effect.
The whole is then, greater than the sum of its parts. What do you think?
