Wie ich mechanisch eine neue Zigarrette drehe und die braunen Stäubchen mit feinem Prickeln auf das weißgelbe Löschpapier der Schreibmappe niedertaumeln, will es mir unwarscheinlich werden, daß ich noch wache. Und wie die feuchtwarme Abendluft, die durch das offene Fenster neben mir hereingeht, die Rauchwölkchen so seltsam formt und aus dem Bereich der grünbeschirmten Lampe ins Mattschwarze trägt, steht es mir fest, daß ich schon träume.
Da wird's natürlich schon ganz arg; denn diese Meinung wirft der Phantasie die Zügel auf den Rücken. Hinter mir knackt heimlich neckend die Stuhllehne, daß es mir jäh wie hastiger Schauder durch alle Nerven fährt. Das stört mich ärgerlich in meinem tiefsinnigen Studium der Bizarren Rauchschriftzeichen, die im mich irren, und über die einen Leitfaden zu ferfassen ich bereits entschlossen war.
Aber nun ist die Ruhe zum Teufel. Tolle Bewegung in allen Sinnen. Fiebrisch, nervös, wahnsinnig. Jeder Laut keift. Und mit all dem verwirrt steigt Vergessenes auf. Einst dem Sehsinn Eingeprägtes, das sich seltsam erneut; mit dem Fühlen dazu von damals. [...] Vision. Proza-Skizze//Thomas Mann.

:: just a few chords ::
due to all that hard work on the de-crypting of Aristotle's H4-5, i need now to numb myself with a tidbit of music. ten random songs.
1. La Femme D'Argent//Air.____this french band was found by means of my yahoo launch player, the soothing effect it has on me right now is somehow indescribable. it resembles to some point one other band found also on launch called "lemon jelly". the genre is called 'ambient' but i know not what that means or implies. ***
2.Jazzanova Lounge (Deepside A)//St. Germain____yet another french electronic band. for all i know, these people are a jazz quartet and a dj, known mostly by one song of theirs called 'so flute' often played in bars. it's quite a strange song, not entirely upbeat, but the iteration of some words i cannot comprehend gives it that techno-feel. ***
3. Old Love//Eric Clapton____ as most songs by Clapton, this one has something of a magnetic grip, a certain charm to its apparent simplicity. i love his voice, that sorrow reaching for light and comfort in the outside. ****
4. Paradigm Shift//Liquid Tension Experiment____this one just startled me, it's what those that know something about music -evidently, not myself, i simply use the term hoping such use is appropriate- call 'progressive rock'. there's certainly virtuosism in what is played, and the up-tempo character of the song simply emanates a sense of power. though it can be debated whether or not there's 'feeling' to it all, i must say i like it . *** 1/2
5. Michele//The Beatles____i learned to play this song on the clarinet when i was on fifth grade, it was a most gratifying experience for i've always had a strong bond to The Beatles' music -call it acquired behavior from the example set by my father-; though i cannot understand a lot of things said in the song -i don't understand french- every time i listen to it, tears flow up. *****
6. No Surprises//Radiohead____this is a song that i believe to be simply charming, in each of the many ways in which that can be understood. i've had a strange 'relationship' with Radiohead, there are times in which i adore it, some others in which i can't emotionally stand it. "siiiiiiiiiiiiilent". ****
7.Manfred-Meditation//Friedrich Nietzsche____i once was obsessed with this fellow, though i know i could never articulate a single word about him, from that time comes this beautiful song, part of a trilogy -or so i've been told- composed in his early years. the quality of the recording -the interpret is called, john "something"- is not very good, i think it's some sort of concert, but the simplicity of the piano accompanied by cello is magical, to say the least. ****
8. Mammagamma//Alan Parson's Project____one more product of my father's influence upon my musical likings. this song in particular is not one of my favorites, it seems to be quite "disco" -as my father calls everything he doesn't like-; i would rather recommend 'Psycobabble'. **1/2
9.Sea//Jorge Drexler____i found out about the existence of this enchanting fellow by means of Mer's blog. this song has it all, good rhythm, good lyrics, good arrangements. ****
10.Coming Back to Life//Pink Floyd____by some strange will or fortune, Pink Floyd always manages to be on my lists, that is quite strange for i don't have that much music on my winamp playlist by them. this song reminds me of srguillot for many many reasons, but mostly because of the 'singing technique', it reminds me of his voice and love for his singing. i like this song, i don't know what else to say. *****
coming in through my ears::Novacane/Beck
