KoM 6th anniversary

Yes, it's our anniversary. But last Saturday I had the privilege of being in a beautiful and soulful reunion of old anonymous friends in a tribute to the best music promoter we ever knew. Also I had the joy of finding some words of mine printed in the book for him. So I'm still on that spirit and even though I've been so busy, I got inspired listening to some cassettes from his early 90s radio shows that I taped. After all, I owe him most of my musical culture.

AS 5 years after

"Agora não, que estou a ouvir a missa", disse eu muitas vezes quando tentavam interromper-me durante o "Som da Frente" ou outros programas de António Sérgio.
Curiosamente, AS despedia-se amiúde das suas cerimónias desejando "que o Som esteja convosco".
Nem de propósito, têm ecoado na minha memória os sons de Adrian Borland do início dos anos 80 e do post-punk.
Provavelmente, estão os dois algures como num "reencontro de velhos amigos" "pelo direito à diferença".
"Take care".


"Not now, I'm hearing the Mass," I often said when someone tried to interrupt my listening to "Som da Frente" or other António Sérgio's radio programs.
By the way, sometimes AS left his ceremonies, wishing "May the Sound be with you".
Not on purpose, are echoing in my memory the post-punk sounds of Adrian Borland from the early 80s.
Probably they're both somewhere as in a "reunion of old friends" "for the right to difference". 
"Take care".

saudade



ao redor desta fogueira
enquanto as armas descansam
deito os meus olhos aos céus
pelas estrelas dos teus

saudade

amada
senhora
pomba de cristal

amada
senhora
morro de paixão

ao redor desta fogueira
enquanto as armas descansam
deito os meus olhos aos céus
por não se verem nos teus

saudade

amada
senhora
lágrima do céu

amada
senhora
morro de paixão

ao redor desta fogueira
enquanto as armas descansam
peito rasgado de amor
troa o rufar do tambor

amor quão longe tu estás


around this fire
while the weapons rest
I dive my eyes in the skies
for the stars of yours

saudade

beloved
lady
crystal dove

beloved
lady
I die for passion

around this fire
while the weapons rest
I dive my eyes in the skies
'cause they aren't seen in yours

saudade

beloved
lady
tear of heaven

beloved
lady
I die for passion

around this fire
while the weapons rest
breast ripped off by love
rumbles the drumming ruff

love how far you are

incantations



I'd love if Mike Oldfield did a new version of this like I did on cassette when I bought this album, excluding some boring parts and tuneless vocal others. He would be fare, once he made 4 versions of Tubular Bells. Why shouldn't he do the same to other of his creations?
So in this entire clip, I would avoid: 0:00 to 2:35, 25:15 to 27:16 (Diana..Luna..Lucina), 28:05 to 32:25, 34:35 to 41:17, 51:00 to the end.
This has movements of masterpiece. In most of them I "see" ballerinas :)

Joan Baez for my doggie

My doggie loved music. Last Tuesday, one day before she went to the clinic, this Joan Baez cover was singing in my mind and so I played her this record. She listened to it, she stood up and she asked me to go out. She made her last walkie.
Have a peaceful weekend.

have an awesome week :)

I have finally completed the edition of the 2 clips I proposed myself to make, from the last (and fabulous) concert of Anna Calvi here in Lisbon, last December.
Aula Magna has a good acoustic condition, but it was not made for electronic and rock music. So the sound we have in these takes is just the possible, despite the time I spent trying to make a presentable sound.
But still are very awesome moments :)
On the 1st clip, you can activate the subtitles about the dialogues and the names of the songs.
Enjoy :)

Have a cool weekend :)

Sérgio Matsinhe aka General D, born in Mozambique 1971, came to Portugal when he was a little kid and in 90's he became one of the most important rappers during all that decade. However, that success scared him and he disappeared from music, living quietly in England with his family.
Now he thinks it's time to come back to the musical scene again.
There's so few about him in internet and no clips of his songs I like most.
But this one is pretty, though. He asks about his brothers in Africa and what they thought they were doing with their wars at the time and also why many of them left their countries and African culture.

índios



Tribute for the 20th anniversary of the extinct Brazilian Legião Urbana band's 1986 song with original poem from Renato Santos, member of the same band. The poem pretends to be an Indian lament.
Extracts:
...
I wish at least for once
to believe for a moment in everything that exists
And believe that the world is perfect
and all the people are happy
...
I wanted the danger and I even bled alone
You know?
So I could bring you back to me
when I discovered that's always only you
who understands me from the beginning to the end

And it's only you who has the cure for my addiction
of insisting on that saudade I feel
from everything I have not seen

They gave us mirrors and we saw a sick world
...

Happy Valentine night ...

... and a lovely weekend :)



Saturday night I'm not so lonely
only lonely
only with you like this.
I know from your mistakes
Mine and thine
Yours and mine lovers I haven't met.

And if life stopped
a step back.
From mistakes
I wanted to reborn in you.

And if your smile would be invented
I were an inventor
I made a paradise like this.

Something tells me that there's more love here.
Outside I only lied.
Once I was bohemian.
Only alone, I lie alone.

I will love you, or maybe I will cry for you
even so, I want to see you smile.
And if I lose, I'll try to forget it at once, counting to 3
If I want to be happy...

If there are tulips in your garden
I'll be the land and the rain's water
to make you bloom in brightest color,
my love I am all in here

Saturday night I'm not so lonely
only lonely
only with you like this.
I'm not so lonely, only lonely.

I will love you, or maybe I will cry for you
even so, I want to see you smile.
And if I lose, I'll try to forget it at once, counting to 3
If I want to be happy...

yes, I love this ...

... and I'm not afraid of anybody and I don't care :D



Have a happy week :)

A lullaby in repeat

4 years ago I posted this song here. But it's so good, I must repeat it again and again :)





Good night :)

balancing sound

now that the storm is passing, I had the presence of the sea roaring all day and I remembered that sound along this song on its studio version, as if it was played by the sea or in a boat

Tonight, @ "X Factor" hysterical circus contest, one of the oldest competitors made this pearl:
