"Quivering with reflections of the future..."



" QUIETLY BURNING ON A SUNDAY NIGHT

Water flowing / feather burning
Angelic drone floating
A bell chimes (several times)

The voice

Multitude of sounds - ever heard of sonic constellations ? -
Always up
NOIZE poetry
LOUD very LOUD
Attacked
Almost surrendering
Still...
Going UP UP UP

And then

DOWN
CRASHING INTO THE SEA


Calmness of the endless horizon
The gentle moving of waves

To the bottom of the sea, she sang (mermaid cindy doll)
Quietly burning / quietly drowning
Caressing guitar chords... unexpected

Down to
The bottom of the sea


Like luminous fishes dancing into the Abyss

That was Cindytalk that night
10/12/08 @ the Luminaire in Kilburn London "

One measly photograph to show for that gig!!? If we needed proof that it was a bit of a damp-squib of a gig that'd be it... sigh.

And did anyone put on film the plague in Athens,the death of Socrates,the eruption of Vesubius on AD 79,the execution of Mary Queen of Scots,the fire of London,Napoleon entering Moscow???
A photo does NOT diminish anything!!!
And I have heard sounds that prove how magnificent it was.

excuse me!!! you picked historical events that happened before the invention of photography!!! chances are somebody painted those events from imagination because they were IN the public imagination.i'm allowed to be disappointed aren't i?

You are allowed to be disappointed and I am allowed to explain my point of view - literally.

I was at 12 Club when you played there. It was the first time I'd seen you in years. I learnt one thing very quickly. Immerse yourself in the sound and vision, have nothing peripheral to the performance in front of you. Let it completely pull you in. I find that happens better for me and I get mmore from the experience if I don't stick a camera between my eyes and yours. You played for me that night not my electronic image box.

Can I just add, Fabrice you are a beautiful poet, you captured it perfectly, your words paint a thousand pictures. Even when we are in the same room we do not meet, ahhh.

andy, you will get no argument from me on this subject.in fact i had long since worked out that was why we had soundcheck video footage and not gig
footage.i agree withyou 100%.my comments didn't have you (or anyboy else in particular) in mind at all,
i just feel that the gig was an awful anti-climax and that there has been little documentation and/or response testifies to this.it might not seem damaging to you but it does to us.
