Poem of Zack de la Rocha to Ocuppy movement...Occupy Album&Musicians

“This poem is dedicated to the Occupy movement whose courage is changing the world. Stay Strong. We are winning.”
Zack de la Rocha

The beginning spills through city veins
Into the arteries
And under powers poison clouds
We move like the shadows
Through the alley ways
Through nightmares bought and sold as dreams
Through barren factories
Through boarded schools
Through rotting fields
Through the burning doors of the past
Through imaginations exploding
To break the curfews in our minds
Our actions awaken dreams of actions multiplied
A restless fury
Once buried like burning embers
Left alone to smolder
But together stacked under the walls of a dying order
All sparks are counted
Calloused hands raised in silence
Over the bonfire of hope unincorporated
It’s flame restores tomorrows meaning
Across the graveyards of hollow promises
As gold dipped vultures pick at what is left of our denial
And the youngest among us
Stare at us stoned like eyes determined
And say
Death for us may come early
Cause dignity has no price
At the corner of now and nowhere
Tomorrow is calling
Tomorrow is calling
Do not be afraid

Liu Bolin (Escondido por todo el Mundo)

Algunas veces dar un vistazo rápido a una fotografía, puede resultar poco confiable, para los que no acostumbran observar detenidamente , los múltiples trucos visuales que se pueden utilizar para engañar nuestros sentidos resultan muy ingeniosos.

En este sentido, la fabulosa obra del camaleónico artista chino, Liu Bolin, mejor conocido como “el maestro del camuflaje“ o “el hombre invisible“, reconocido por mimetizarse con su entorno, logra su cometido.

Michel Gondry

“When people are very original, sometimes they are original as a way to resist the mainstream.”

“Sometimes it`s better to have less money (for budget) and more freedom“.
Michel Gondry

Una faceta poco conocida del talentoso director francés de cine , video y comerciales, Michel Gondry, es la de dibujante de comics, su primer novela gráfica “We lost the war but not the battle“ nos mostró sus dotes de artista gráfico que desde niño ha desarrollado.

Para su mas nuevo proyecto, un “film-book“, llamado “My New New York Diary“, con la ayuda de Julie Doucet, desarrolla un experimento muy interesante , un proyecto gráfico cinematográfico que incluye un dvd y un comic.Sin duda Michel Gondry no solo es un estupendo directo si no también un buen dibujante.

Adiós Tomas Segovia...(1927-2011)

Tomás Segovia en Madrid. (1 mar 08) Foto: JB

"...El susurro del viento errante por la noche
que trae de los trasfondos la efusión solitaria
del tumulto callado de las cosas..."
Tomas Segovia

Hay que cerrar con llave la casa atareada
Al modo de quien deja encerrada su ropa
para entrar en el mar
Hay que venir sin nada
A mojarse el cabello en el silencio
A mirar todo esto pero dejarlo estar
Los árboles que instauran la lentitud del tiempo
Que luego rasgan con agudos picos
Los presurosos pájaros siempre asomados
Hay que no pedir nada
A tantos seres vivos cada uno en lo suyo
Como si hubieran de dejar bien claro
Que cumplen a conciencia su tarea
Como queriendo dar todas las pruebas
De una fidelidad meticulosa
No sabría decir para quién pues bien veo
Que para mí no es.

“Lluvia estival“

En la apartada noche ya sin nadie,
tibia, agitada, leve cae la lluvia,
sola para sí sola.

Íntima bailarina por la noche,
misteriosa, alocada,
gime allá, vuela, ahoga aquí una risa,
caprichosa musita, se interrumpe,
juguetona, inquietante,
viene y va, calla, desde lejos torna
con sonreídas lágrimas,
va a decir algo que en suspiro muere.

Y huyendo con susurros
y voces de sirena,
deja en el aire un mórbido perfume
de amor difunto en punzante recuerdo,

y en el alma el errático, incurable,
secreto amor de todas las derivas...

Another Day in America ...(DELUSION:Laurie Anderson , Bellas Artes 7/Nov/2011)

“They say you die three times,” goes one passage, “once when your heart stops, again when your body is buried or cremated, and then the last time someone says your name...”
Delusion (fragment, Laurie Anderson.

“Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are“

Delusion:engaño,auto engaño,falsa opinión, creencia errónea...

Poesía audiovisual , la música como experiencia de vida, eso es DELUSION, espectáculo de Laurie Anderson lleno de historias humanas y filosóficas, que enfrentan al espectador como un espejo.

Hablar de Laurie Anderson es hablar de toda una leyenda e institución dentro de la escena artística de New York y que al paso del tiempo y con su unión con otra figura iconica como lo es Lou Reed (cosa que no le sumó nada a su magnifico trabajo artístico, solo lo complementó), ha sabido sufrir las metamorfosis pertinentes en su trabajo y lograr estremecer con sus presentaciones en vivo.

Una vez mas la suerte jugó de mi lado y de manera fortuita me encontré de frente en el espejo de “Delusion“, reflexionando sobre las magníficas historias que de voz de Anderson nos envolvieron durante mas de una hora en una vorágine de sentimientos encontrados, fabulosa experiencia.

Fotos de Toni Francois

Las historias que puede contar un músico de rock , en la que las giras de su banda son por todo el mundo y duran varios meses, puede ser una experiencia realmente interesante.

Nick Zinner , guitarrista del grupo newyorkino , The Yeah Yeah Yeah´s , ha registrado con su cámara fotográfica , detalles que explican algunas de esas historias fantásticas de viajar y tocar por todo el mundo.

“1001 Images“ es la nueva exposición fotográfica de Zinner, quién cuenta ya con tres libros de foto,( uno de ellos con introducción escrita por Jim Jarmusch) , estará presentándose en la Vice Gallery , ubicada en la colonia Roma, en las calle de Mérida 109,

La habitaciones en los hoteles de la gira ,crean un mosaico de imagenes que evocan la experiencia de vida de un músico que suele ver los pequeños detalles dentro de los grandes eventos, escenas de conciertos, en las que los rostros del público se pierden en la multitud son solo algunas cosas que se pueden ver en la exposición.

A la par de está exposición , podemos encontrar el trabajo fotográfico de Toni Francois, quién es muy conocida en el ámbito de los conciertos en México y su trabajo no necesita mayor presentación que lo que se puede ver en su web page, ya que ha logrado captar momentos catárticos dentro de cientos de presentaciones en vivo de los mas diversos grupos y generos.
