All Words in World

Perhaps my most natural sounding composition; made with bass viole de gambe (such a terrific resonance, this instrument), cellos and violas, transversal flute (with haunting hiss), various heavy and light percussions. It features almost no dissonance and in terms of imagery, it is the alter ego of Bruissement de griserie. Perhaps, to fix a ship, we need to invent upside down navigation. Only two takes were needed by Viveka Eriksson, all these incredible vocals were in there !! Now appears on Forecast Proof - 2009, available here.

All Words in World (lyrics written by Vincent Berger Rond and modified by Viveka Eriksson): All the Words in World
I loved them
Really !
Without running outside to scream them (I admit)
It’s too near me
I admit it’s too near me
Didn’t know the right word to express madness / Express madness
Adding a step to the pain I didn’t feel
Pain removes lyrics in our vocals
In the exclusive tragedy
(Didn’t know the right word)
Part deduction (x3) by attacking an erudit mind
We can read these
Seeing them otherwise
Then break all (x4)
Break all into recycling
Making sure the words transform into something else
Doesn’t know language transform itself
Words transform without telling
A ship upside down until all are senseless
Making everything down in the ocean your own
When tangible objects appear in front of your eyes
Then break all into recycling
Making sure the words transform into something else...
Objects we can read them
Seeing them otherwise
Doesn’t know language transform itself
Words transform without telling
Making everything down in the ocean your own
All the words in the world doesn’t mean a thing anymore
When tangible objects appear
Some would love to make them like dead leaves I was hungry to find them all !
Ready to be burned and not so bright (x3)
You are a book worm within lost and found media libraries of upside down navigation You want the ship with you (x3)
After the doubt, all words were lost I was hungry to find them all and make them my own
After the invention of upside down navigation then you want the ship with you
The moment you don’t want to have spent hours with words
A ship upside down until are senseless
Then you want the ship with you A ship upside down until are senseless
Then you want the ship with you
After the invention.. of upside down navigation

All Words in World

My favorite song after Le boxeur travaille... The fact that it is not even near any cool trend of drones made out of orchestral recordings killed in reverb and looped (the same chords over and over...), makes it even better in my ears :) Instead, it is a torch song with dissonances placed between contemplative chords. No electronic sound and not needed and in fact when I tried, it sounded far less good.

Verdict : )

Hi Vincent and whoever,
I must admit when I got the length of the track and all the words, that didn´t seem to end, I thought this will be difficult to do. Both to keep an attended vocal that expresses the words, have a continuous flow, and ofcourse suit the music.
I was afraid that it will be far too much, for any brain to cope with. But the patchwork of different vocalideas are delightfully popping out in these two takes, making to me more sense now to the music. They don´t feel stuck on, they belong together with it. I thought at most you will keep a few sentenses here and there. But to my surprise it ended up more like an vocal expressed storytelling. I really like it.
Slightly concerned with what I will have to do on the other tracks to top this. And not making too much of this same idea.
Viveka
