  • Love World Action Saves: Michel Montecrossa CD triggered by Tea Party money and…

    9 Oct 2013, 18:42 by Stormsong

    New Michel Montecrossa New-Topical-Song release 'Love World Action Saves', triggered by Tea Party money and career craziness and the all-time ethical low of U.S. politos.





    Michel Montecrossa about ‘Love World Action Saves‘:
    “My ‘Love World Action Saves‘ comes at a time when polito stunting reaches top levels of funny but dangerous Tea Party money and career craziness and an all-time U.S. polito low.
    In this song I speak out what millions understand:
    saves
    is my answer great,
    is my answer when all explodes
    into revenge and more blood,
    greed and torture and the big collapse,
    for my love and I we know and see:
    Love brings the Bright Earth for the true and free.’”

    Song Lyrics
    LOVE WORLD ACTION SAVES
    Love World Action saves / when politos are goin’ mad, / when career and money take the place / of ideals in polito-corrupto-heads, / when war business is the cold lord / of banka-gangstas void of Love / for Humanity and Future and Hope.
    Love World Action saves / when the big economies bring / more war industry to earth / instead of standing for Peace / and Human Unity / in the United States / of Planet Earth.
    Love World Action saves / when you don’t cheat your friends, / when you don’t seduce their wives / and tear to pieces their lives / making children into slaves / of sadness and porn. / I say: “Love is the better world to be born.”
    Love World Action saves / when people lose their faith, / when nations are falling apart / listening to Tea Party stuff / or nazism dark / creating a void in the heart. / “Love is the savior”, I say, / “from the Bright Earth smart.”
    Love World Action saves / is my answer great, / is my answer when all explodes / into revenge and more blood, / greed and torture and the big collapse, / for my love and I we know and see: / Love brings the Bright Earth for the true and free.
    Love World Action saves / no sanction can do that, no lie, / no bluff, no crime, / no trick, no dirty deal, / no death and no war field / can bring what Love can bring: / The Bright Earth of Strong Love Power / in you and me.

    the latest effort for immediate tranquil listening pleasure

    these are the people to whom music is meditation by Mobdividual

    from full review by the brainless horde:
    "The music just isn’t written like I, someone who likes to describe in text, would like it to be. I’d call it “post-rock”, but unless it’s the soundtrack to your yearly haunted house run, it won’t get your blood pumping. You could call it “ambient”, but it doesn’t wash over you as much as it pulls you in. You could try calling it “noise”, but it has too much structure and melody to be simplified like that. You could try and pawn it off as a film score, but, aside from David Lynch, I don’t think any director would be able to come up with the random imagery needed to describe the sound palette. While the music itself isn’t something that’s never been done before, it is definitely a breed of its own."

    recorded over a few months, after demoing ideas to myself and as well as developing these songs to be performed solo-instrumental in a live setting; bars, clubs, cafes, basements, garden parties, galleries, festivals, restaurants, etc..

  • La Beauté - By Charles Baudelaire from Les Fleurs du mal (Flowers of evil)

    6 Oct 2013, 16:11 by sari_kirsty



    La Beauté — By Charles Baudelaire from Les Fleurs du mal (Flowers of evil)

    Je suis belle, ô mortels! comme un rêve de pierre,
    Et mon sein, où chacun s'est meurtri tour à tour,
    Est fait pour inspirer au poète un amour
    Eternel et muet ainsi que la matière.

    Je trône dans l'azur comme un sphinx incompris;
    J'unis un coeur de neige à la blancheur des cygnes;
    Je hais le mouvement qui déplace les lignes,
    Et jamais je ne pleure et jamais je ne ris.

    Les poètes, devant mes grandes attitudes,
    Que j'ai l'air d'emprunter aux plus fiers monuments,
    Consumeront leurs jours en d'austères études;

    Car j'ai, pour fasciner ces dociles amants,
    De purs miroirs qui font toutes choses plus belles:
    Mes yeux, mes larges yeux aux clartés éternelles!



    Translation by Laurence Lerner

    The poets love me; they adore my breast
    And bruise themselves upon it, one by one.
    Matter itself, though mute, will not outlast
    Their love for me. I am their dream of stone.

    I hate all movement. Understood by none.
    A sphinx composed against the brilliant sky.
    With Heart of snow and body of swan,
    White joined to white, I neither laugh nor cry.

    The attitudes I strike, and which derive
    From all the world’s great monuments. Can drive
    Poets to burn the midnight oil; to keep

    Those docile lovers spellbound with surmise
    I have two magic mirrors, pure and deep
    My eyes; my clear and beautifying eyes.



    Translation by Sara Kirsty Jackson

    I am beautiful, O mortals! like a dream of stone
    And my breast, where everyone is bruised in turn,
    Is to inspire in the poet a love,
    Eternal and silent as matter.

    I sit in the sky, a mysterious sphinx;
    I join a heart of snow to the whiteness of swans;
    I hate the movement that moves the lines
    And I never cry and I never laugh.

    Poets, before my great attitudes,
    I seem to borrow from the proudest monuments,
    Consume their lives in austere study;

    Because I have to fascinate these docile lovers
    Pure mirrors that make all things more beautiful:
    My eyes, my eyes wide with eternal brightness!



    Translation by William Aggeler,

    I am fair, O mortals! like a dream carved in stone,
    And my breast where each one in turn has bruised himself
    Is made to inspire in the poet a love
    As eternal and silent as matter.

    On a throne in the sky, a mysterious sphinx,
    I join a heart of snow to the whiteness of swans;
    I hate movement for it displaces lines,
    And never do I weep and never do I laugh.

    Poets, before my grandiose poses,
    Which I seem to assume from the proudest statues,
    Will consume their lives in austere study;

    For I have, to enchant those submissive lovers,
    Pure mirrors that make all things more beautiful:
    My eyes, my large, wide eyes of eternal brightness!



    This is my favorite Charles Baudelaire poem. It is loved by many and I have placed some of my favorite translations within this journal alongside mine. This poem means a lot to me personally and I hope that you find a place in your heart for it too. I also have a fascination for statues and sculptures and felt that they would be the perfect accompaniment to his words.

    ♥ Thank you for taking the time to read it.

  • Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 'Tempest Of Darkness & Light' - CD & DVD and video…

    16 Sep 2013, 21:07 by Stormsong

    CD & DVD & video release - Michel Montecrossa's Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 'Tempest Of Darkness & Light'

    DVD Preview Video featuring the song ‘Malala’s Tempest Of Darkness & Light’ (Michel Montecrossa) and the song 'Tempest' (Bob Dylan).



    In a time where espionage and doping are as logical as are criminal speculation, Syria war business, racism, violence, unequal justice and information war, Michel Montecrossa created the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’, a masterpiece of bringing together the , to which he belongs, and the established music industry to which Bob Dylan belongs, in the Spirit of their art and music as an example of creative unity in diversity of expression.
    Together with Mirakali, Diana Antara and his band The Chosen Few, Michel Montecrossa achieves this powerful fusion of apparently hostile cultural systems through unifying creativity of Michel Montecrossa and Bob Dylan as two musician artists who easily stand above imperfect systems – a creativity which is so vividly active in the humanity of their music that they always transcend all borders of fear with their liberal spirit of intuitive understanding, common sense and love.
    Michel Montecrossa, Mirakali and Diana Antara present with the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’ a genius collection of 11 outstanding New-Topical-Songs (9 songs by Michel Montecrossa and 2 songs by Mirakali and Diana Antara) which are masterfully blended with the 10 songs of Bob Dylan’s ‘Tempest’ production performed by Michel Montecrossa with his unique power of revealing through his singing even in darkest things a light coming from a different kind and order of reality.



    With the opening song ‘Malala’s Tempest Of Darkness & Light’ Michel Montecrossa right from the very first line brings in the tone of his bold and his generous humanitarian spirit which is the trademark of his entire Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 production.
    With his great performance of Bob Dylan’s ‘Tempest’ song which follows his opening song, Michel Montecrossa then is making clear his stand for the European-American cultural union overcoming the antagonism between the philosophies of the Free Music Revolution and the established music industry and its totalitarianism.
    This spirit of overcoming borders is now the golden thread leading always more through all songs from darkness to light. It is truly a tempest of struggle unfolding through the 21 songs of Michel Montecrossa and Bob Dylan. It is an artistic catharsis through experience which unfolds that never shrinks from the battle, never fears confrontation. Thus he leads the listener from the precarious outset in a world near the gates of hell – song by song – out of hopelessness into certitude, out of weakness into strength of purpose. Michel Montecrossa carries with his New-Topical-Songs and his easy-going contact with ’s songs the creative dialogue between truth and doubt to its utmost intensity till he reaches the goal with his concluding song ‘Who Is The Future?’. It is a transcendental answer to this universal question and all the questions raised in the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’, an answer that is ultimately found in our own individual existence, its uniqueness and its ability to feel Love and Oneness.

    The 21 songs of the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 with the title ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’ are:
    ’s Tempest Of Darkness & Light‘, ‘‘, ‘Calm Beauty‘, ‘Duquesne Whistle‘, ‘Burnin’ Heart‘, ‘Soon After Midnight‘, ‘Strong Love, Strong Life‘, ‘Narrow Way’, ‘Talking World War & The Nato Gang’, ‘Tin Angel’, ‘Strong Is My Christmas Dream’, ‘Long And Wasted Years’, ‘Love World Action Song’, ‘Pay In Blood’, ‘Talking Media World’, ‘Scarlet Town’, ‘In Mirapuri Where I Ball With You’, ‘Early Roman Kings’, ‘Love & Unity Solution Song’, ‘Roll On John’, ‘Who Is The Future?’.

    Michel Montecrossa about the Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2013 ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’:
    “I am part of the Free Music Revolution. Bob Dylan is part of the established music industry. Both of these worlds can unite in the Spirit of Art and Music which is the beautiful child of the Ideal of Human Unity. It is there where Michel Montecrossa meets Bob Dylan and it is this Ideal that stands behind the ‘Tempest Of Darkness & Light’.”

  • Talking Syria Countdown - Michel Montecrossa's CD about Syria and war business

    9 Sep 2013, 13:51 by Stormsong

    CD News: 'Talking Syria Countdown' is Michel Montecrossa’s CD about Syria and the bloody tracks of war business.

    Michel Montecrossa says about ‘Talking Syria Countdown’:
    “I wrote ‘Talking Syria Countdown’ at a time when in Syria big war business was writing its bloody tracks.
    Booming weapons industry on all levels of human society is increasingly changing politicians, bankers and media people into polito-corruptos, banka-gangstas and media-payolas.
    Now the people must rise and show a new ethics and that’s what ‘Talking Syria Countdown’ is all about.”

    Video ‘Talking Syria Countdown’:
    http://vimeo.com/48796795



    Song Lyrics
    TALKING SYRIA COUNTDOWN
    Syria’s unrelenting violence, torture and massacres / are the bloody tracks of big war business and trade of weapons. / And all the traders of weapons are prolonging / and expanding now the war. / Syria countdown is about how much longer / war-profit-slaughter can be extended.
    In Russia, America, England, Germany and where not, / you‘ll find the big producers and dealers of weapons / having a good time. / “Booming weapons industry means employment and / money for the states,” they say. / “So let’s kill them all as long as it goes for the profit great.”
    Talking Syria countdown is about politos and bankas / walking over dead bodies with no sense of humanity at all. / It’s about money, greed and no ethics, propaganda and bluffing us all. / Leaders and speculators work together, mislead the people, / don’t help them at all. / The rich help the rich, they don’t help the poor, / they create them. / Talking Syria countdown tells about cynicism / of leaders who are no statesmen. / Talking Syria countdown tells about warmongers / and human breakdown. / Talking Syria countdown tells about the people / that must rise.
