“the Vampyre of Time and Memory” – Joshua Davis

“The Vampyre Of Time And Memory”

I want to God to come and take me home
‘Cause I’m all alone in this crowd
Who are you to me?
Who am I supposed to be?
Not exactly sure anymore
Where’s this going to?
Can I follow through?
Or just follow you
For a while?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love

Ain’t no confusion here, it is as I feared
The illusion that you feel is real
To be vulnerable is needed most of all
If you intend to truly fall apart

You think the worst of all is far behind
The Vampyre of time and memories has died
I survived.
I speak, I breathe,
I’m incomplete
I’m alive – hooray!
You’re wrong again
‘Cause I feel no love

Does anyone ever get this right?

Does anyone ever get this right?
I feel no love
I feel no love

THE FIRST POST I’M HOPING TO CONTINUE

“Orpheo’s Mind”

Insula Orchestra – “Orpheo’s Mind”

Touchy about playing. If you have a problem, Click on Vimeo on the lower right corner of Video. Seems to be more co-operative. Worth the view.

Insula orchestra joins visual creative agency SUPERBIEN to make an abstract, dreamlike video work entitled Orpheo’s Mind on an excerpt from Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, the aria “Che puro Heaven.” This air, one of the most beautiful pages of Orfeo ed Euridice, interpreted by famous against-tenor Franco Fagioli Insula and orchestra under the direction of Laurence Equilbey.

The work of Insula orchestra and SUPERBIEN gives this work a double dimension: audio and visual. The viewer is transported by the hypnotic poetry celebrating the beauty and expressing space, the passage of time and the tumult of emotions experienced by Orpheus as it passes through the underworld.

The cloud hanging in the center of this audiovisual poem embodies spiritual enlightenment and ascension of the spirit. The video projected on the cloud and the light scattered within it are worked there as materials. Light lives only through the cloud of the prism whose structure consists of two complementary materials: transparent plexiglass angular contrasting with the more opaque wispy tulle. Add to this an ambient video projection strengthening the immersion of the viewer in the spirit of Orpheus. The combination of pure aesthetics of sculpture and beauty of the aria from Gluck says the modernity of all while supporting the poetry of the musical work.

W.H. Auden “Funeral Blues”

Funeral Blues

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message ‘He is Dead’.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

— W.H. Auden

Ji-Hae Park: The Violin, and my dark night of the soul

Published on May 24, 2013
In her quest to become a world-famous violinist, Ji-Hae Park fell into a severe depression. Only music was able to lift her out again — showing her that her goal needn’t be to play lofty concert halls, but instead to bring the wonder of the instrument to as many people as possible.
