Post Three old songs I wrote in the seventies
I published three of the songs I wrote in the late seventies. See

They are in Swiss German and German. But nevertheless have a good time with them.

Remo,

Loved your music CD.

BTW was this on your "Bucket List"?

Gregory,

I do not understand what you mean with "Bucket list".

Hi Remo,

although from what I've posted on the forum about music it would be obvious that I lean toward the 'heavy' side of music. A lot of the progressive bands that I listen to often have an opratic or folk element to them. There have been a lot of breaks in songs that lean toward what you've posted here and I think it's great.

The obvious thing is inspiration... I've often questioned what makes one person 'able' to be open like that. It's always been admirable to me in my 'silence'... they used to make silent movies but I've yet to hear a silent song... :lol:

*silent song - I guess I have heard one... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4′33″ (this link cuts off at "4" so best to copy and paste)

4′33″ (pronounced "Four minutes, thirty-three seconds"[1]) is a three-movement composition[2][3] by American experimental composer John Cage (1912–1992). It was composed in 1952 for any instrument (or combination of instruments), and the score instructs the performer not to play the instrument during the entire duration of the piece throughout the three movements (the first being thirty seconds, the second being two minutes and twenty-three seconds, and the third being one minute and forty seconds). The piece purports to consist of the sounds of the environment that the listeners hear while it is performed,[4] although it is commonly perceived as "four minutes thirty-three seconds of silence".[5][6]
4′33″ is Cage's most famous and most controversial composition.[2]
Conceived around 1947–1948, while the composer was working on Sonatas and Interludes,[2] 4′33″ became for Cage the epitome of his idea that any sounds constitute, or may constitute, music.[7] It was also a reflection of the influence of Zen Buddhism, which Cage studied since the late forties. In a 1982 interview, and on numerous other occasions, Cage stated that 4′33″ was, in his opinion, his most important work.[8]
4′33″ is an example of automaticism. Since the Romantic Era composers have been striving to produce music that could be separated from any social connections, transcending the boundaries of time and space. In automaticism, composers wish to completely remove both the composers and the artist from the process of creation. This is motivated by the belief that creation without social pressure is impossible, there is no way for us to truly express ourselves without infusing the art with the social standards that we have been subjected to since birth. Therefore, the only way to achieve truth is to remove the artist from the process of creation. Cage achieves that by employing chance (e.g. use of the I Ching, or tossing coins) to make compositional decisions. In 4′33″, neither artist nor composer has any impact on the piece, Cage has no way of controlling what ambient sounds will be heard by the audience.[9]



*in your video there's a pause which happens to be at 1:37. By chance?


Kind regards,
pascal

It’s a list of things that you always wanted to do before you die.

For example, one of the things on my “bucket list” is the ability to tell a good joke that people spontaneously get.

In America “kick the bucket” is a way of joking around about doing the most unusual things before you die. It struck me that your cutting a music CD was something you always wanted to do.

Post Re: Three old songs I wrote in the seventies
Gregory, I woke up somewhere in June and was reminded of the fact that I knew the gitarrist Max Laesser (see/listen to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeV0PXYnGTo ) 35 years ago. I emailed him and he immediately said that he could be my side man.

In the recording session I was eventually able to find my singer's voice. I realized that I have to sing with a very restrained voice. Thus 35 years after the composition of the songs I had found my voice.

It was the unconscious that told me to sing my songs again. I do not have to "kick the bucket" anymore, since I have given up my ambition completely. If things happen, they can happen - in the kairos.

Remo

Post Text Translation
Remo,

Google has some very good language translators. If you post the song text in German we could see what the words to your music say in other languages.

My understanding of "kick the bucket" is as a metaphor for dying. The complete surrender of ambition I understand to be "dying before you die." This is something high on my bucket list.

With all my love and blessings,
Ann

PS I hope the words to your songs do get translated.

Post Re: Three old songs I wrote in the seventies
Here is the translation of the third (which is written in German) It was the first hunch of what I call today Eros consciousness:

The bounceback (04/03/1979) [Das Stehaufmännchen]

1st
I yelled, only half-born
This life I didn’t want
It was already half lost
I saw it as a little imp

Then came the bounceback (skipjack)
And whispered in my ear,
Then came the bounceback
and whispered, '"Try it, you fool!"

2nd
Fate would like to lay me down
But I, I'm still standing
On straight and crooked ways
I defeated it yet

I was helped by the bounceback
That was by my side
I was helped by the bounceback
My very best mortgage

3rd
The Grim Reaper knocking
Would 'intake and yet still
I stuffed the door and window
Defeated him yet so

I was helped by the bounceback
During highest pain and distress
I was helped by the bounceback
Without it I'd be dead

4th
This way I learned to endure
So many bad years
Carried off the debts of life
But soon I'll pay cash

I am a bounceback
I do not have it in the head
I am a bounceback
My weight is in my feet


Remo

Lyrics of the 1st song:

Being alone (first song in my youtube video):

1st
Only if you can be alone
And only then you learn
With others to be
Otherwise you're alone
Even if you think you're a couple
You don’t feel at home anywhere

2nd
If you fly from yourself
Believe me pulled on the length
You lose out
Then you're sitting in your drinking hole [Spelunke]
All this has also its charm
But you don’t learn anything

3rd
Sometimes you need a few years
To go back
But it is worth soon
You'll then see who you are
No bird and no fish
But this passes by

4th
You'll see that in you
The people are that you did not find
when you were drinking with them
You talk with them and soon
Has then also passed,
that you can not be alone

5th
Granted, this is quite hard
Sometimes you feel so empty
But this has its deep sense:
That one looks for oneself
it needs, that's the curse,
First of all emptiness.
