Papillottes exquises II

Encore de la poésie de Noël, grâce aux citations trouvées, découpées et que la hasard a magiquement reconstruites...

La Musique commence: plus belle pour moi que les passions.
L'amour: ferme les yeux et tu en verras le lendemain.
La poésie de la Terre le lendemain de la musique commence.
Ma matinée est à la rosée ce que l'eau ne meurt jamais.

La pluie est plus belle pour moi que quand tu lances la flèche des sentiments.

La soirée n'est jamais la musique du discours.

Le lendemain de ses idées de la veille ne restait que la poésie de la Terre.

Oh Uniquement la caresse.

Papillotes exquises

C'est de saison. On prend les petits papiers dans les papillotes, ceux avec les citations ou les blagues, on les découpe en morceaux, on mélange, et voilà:

Nul ne skie doucement sans laisser les garçons glisser.

La bonne volonté respectable me paraît être la gourmandise.

Dead Can Dance fan video

 Click here to see the Video on YouTube:

A short fan video on DCD, with the posthumous participations of Hildegard Von Bingen and Hieronymous Bosch.

Hildegard von Bingen, a medieval workaholic:
(1098 – 17 September 1179), also known as Saint Hildegard, and Sibyl of the Rhine, was a German writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath.[1] Elected a magistra by her fellow nuns in 1136, she founded the monasteries of Rupertsberg in 1150 and Eibingen in 1165. One of her works as a composer, the Ordo Virtutum, is an early example of liturgical drama and arguably the oldest surviving morality play.[2]
She wrote theological, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as letters, liturgical songs, and poems, while supervising brilliant miniature illuminations.

More on Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights" previously in my blog.

When I was working on Rodney's adventure in the land of Nod, I remembered the cover for Aion, which actually introduced me to Hieronymus Bosch that many years ago! So when preparing the material for the animation film, I kept in mind I wanted to do a little something to link DCD and Bosch again.
Hence this very short fan video clip, where I added the music from Hildegard von Bingen: I was lucky enough the three times I saw DCD live to sit very close to the front and to enjoy watching Lisa sing; her own language and absorption in this kind of mystical realm led me to think that Hildegard would be the right accompanying music for this. For a while I toyed with the idea of mixing in african drums in the background, but decided against, to keep the focus on medieval era.
Hildegard had invented a secret language and a secret alphabet; that is the one I used in the opening title (at random I have to say), to rewrite the band's name.
