The Chanteuse

 

Wandering star

I never talk about my bad traits

glamour from a Gilda age

jewel personalities,

London calling

mix and match of the day

beyond the beach

Switzerland without skis

the demolition man

unsteady odyssey

street of shame

human capital

every breath you take defensive

behaviour odd to ominous

not just another maestro

an artist finds his groove

folk of ages

avant-garde explosion

pay up, pay up and play the game

let the field of the mind fall fallow

please hang up and try again.

The character of the heads of the so called kings and queens… #arthistory #chartres

May 4, 2017

 

‘… These heads seem to me to show a new stage in the ascent of western man[kind]. Indeed I believe that this refinement, this look of selfless detachment, and spirituality is something entirely new in art. Beside them the Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece look arrogant, soulless, even slightly brutal.

‘I fancy that the faces that look out at us from the past are, perhaps, the surest indication we have of the meaning of an epoch.’

40a308a6be89b3aa7e4e7d7352cb528e

And the faces on the westside of Chartres Cathedral are amongst the most sincere and the most aristocratic that western Europe has ever produced.’

Art and Life, still and moving, words and images… houseofodwyer.com

February 3, 2017

 

In the studio at night i draw

and paint with pens,

small works on paper.

Work must be done.

Fairy lights and naked bulbs

charm in the dark.

It calms one.

The book is closed.

Lights out, doors locked and on to the cold street.

The wind whips by, past the Lion, across the busy road,

under the railway arch, along the bike path

and through the graveyard

and peace

The bus stop. 253

6 minutes.

Pity the passengers.

It claims one

Lyrics by #hood

 

Wandering Star

 

Wandering star…

I never talk about my bad traits,

glamour from a Gilda age

jewel personalities,

London calling

mix and match of the day

beyond the beach,

Switzerland without skis

the demolition man,

unsteady odyssey

street of shame

human capital

every breath you take defensive

behaviour odd to ominous,

not just another maestro

an artist finds his groove,

folk of ages

avant-garde explosion,

pay up, pay up and play the game

let the field of the mind fall fallow

please hang up and try again.

 

here’s to future collaborations.

Have a good one!

How best to commemerate 100 years of DADA, than have my own dada lyrics sung by the amazing Yumi Hara (of cult group Artaud Beats) on a purple electronic Harp, my favourite instrument! (well now it is!)

Here is how it started…  we were working with the Dalston Ballet Co. in London at Miranda, Ace Hotel, Shoreditch, London.

Yumi Hara was commisioned to sing and set the lyrics of ‘In Byron’s footsteps,’ by the house of o’dwyer, for a dance work by the Dalston Ballet Co.

Yumi Hara liked the lyrics so much she included them in her recent solo concert in Osaka, Japan. 

I felt AMAZED and OVERWHELMED! And hopefully we shall work on another track when she gets back to Clapton.
