Une sorte de poème intuitif (d'un seul jet) d'ensemble pour ma musique, j'ai changé d'idée pour le titre après-coup et pour être véritablement bon, le poème devrait peut-être changer d'idée souvent :
Je vois la réalité comme un ennemi
Vie trop absurde pour être significative
qu'une illusion devant les yeux
Rien à en tirer
sauf des déceptions
(«Ce n'est que cela !»)
Les gens sont contents avec rien
Performance art video by Paul McCarthy (http://vimeo.com/38510381). There something about the way he attacks sexuality and childhood that specially talks to me. Like McCarthy (he said it in interview), I don't remember any childhood trauma (my parents are as nice as can be), yet, I feel perfectly at home with the theme through the realm of creation.

In my music, Viveka Eriksson creates the vocal noises. Marco Rosano plays the dry saxophone, one of the key signature of this project. For no clear reason, I didn't explore much the saxophone after and before. I sing mostly with my roughest voice (and even this personal aspect is justified early in the dance video). My best and most subtle lyrics of the whole music project that I wanted rough with straight lines :
Music project :
I once thought (and still do) that they had good tastes, non-biased agendas and that they were out of any obvious school. It is nice to appear in the same list than millionaires rockers like Sigur Ros (Innis) prog rock forces of nature's Emerson, Lake & Palmer. Marco Oppedisano Electroacoustic Compositions for Electric Guitar also made the same list by writer Mark S. Tucker.
with a video that had English subtitles. They complete well the lyrics of my song Intention Dévorante. The result is close enough to what I had in mind while writing the original poem (http://vimeo.com/34824794).
In Duet for Cannibals (1969), the critic Susan Suntag brings in a story that was most imitated. She thinks about more meanings than most directors care or are able to do. This brilliant movie can be downloaded for free (we hope for long under the current climate, let's enjoy it now, it says a lot about it) on the essential Ubuweb : http://www.ubu.com/film/sontag.html

Izanami (for Alexandra Fol). First, I have to acknowledge and send thanks to the composer and musician Alexandra Fol who have made the month of September 2011 a little less gloomy for me in a year of personal disasters. This is my first professional commission after, what I would evaluate as 10 years of quality music composition.
This piece ends up on my album Elle avait raison Hathor (2012) under a song format with dense Laura Kilty vocal layers.
