I. TERRE NASCOSTE [Lands Hidden]
"Also in Raissa, city of sadness, an invisible thread there unwinds and binds one living being to another, then unravels and afterwards is stretched again between moving points, drawing new, rapid forms so that at every second the unhappy city contains a happy city unaware of its own existence."

"Και στη Ραϊσσα, πόλη της θλίψης, ένα νήμα αόρατο ξετυλίγεται, συνδέει για μια στιγμή τη μια ζωντανή ύπαρξη με την άλλη κι ύστερα χάνεται, κατόπιν απλώνεται πάλι ανάμεσα σε σημεία που μετακινούνται και νέες μορφές γοργοκίνητες σχεδιάζει, ώστε κάθε λεπτό μες τη δυστυχισμένη πόλη περιέχεται μια πόλη ευτυχισμένη η οποία δεν ξέρει καθόλου οτι υπάρχει."
[ΙΤΑΛΟ ΚΑΛΒΙΝΟ, Οι Κρυμμένες Πόλεις 2, απόσπασμα ]

Eξαιρετική εταιρεία, καταφύγιο ήχων, εικόνων, σκέψεων και ..αναμνήσεων!!

LaFolieDuJour said...

Εξαιρετική πράγματι, Σωτήρη, και αν μου επιτρεπεις να προσθέσω, ανθεκτική στο χρόνο και εξελιξιμη.
Με ευρεία γκαμα ακουσμάτων και επιρροών, διεθνες ρεπερτόριο, κορυφαιους ιταλους μουσικούς (Bigazzi, Stalteri κ.α), με κριτικη σταση στο (εκάστοτε) σήμερα και εκλεκτικο βλεμμα στο χτες.

Ιδιαιτερη βεβαια αναρτηση αξιζουν πολλα απο τα δειγματιζομενα εδω αλμπουμ της εταιρειας (τι λες και συ koroviov;), κυριως τα σχετικως υποτιμημενα "dunarobba" και "elvengamello" των Militia οι οποιοι με τη σύμπραξη του Arlo Bigazzi αλλαξαν επιπεδο.

Να σαι καλά φίλε

I enjoyed following the whole entry, I always thought one of the main things to count when you write a blog is learning how to complement the ideas with images, that's exploiting at the maximum the possibilities of a ciber-space! Good work on this entry!

paramo said...

pharmacy, thanks for your comment.
(sorry for delayed answer; i was out, away...)
