The walls of Limbo
on: February 06, 2019, 20:15:36
As a writer I consider myself, I often contemplate my music as short stories, so today I share this song that describes an abstract but concrete scene.

I would like you to look at it as an entertaining scene but at the same time correct any flaws in my English. The video being on Vimeo I can replace it with the corrected one. Thank you very much.

The train was going fast
leaving the night behind
and the rhythm of its sound
awoke sleepy echoes
on the walls of that limbo

the train was going fast
leaving its lament behind

and I devoured time
wrapping it in my eyes
to look for its secrets
to look for its secrets

And the hours
stretched
under the gaze of that sun
that so many shadows
erased
in the heartbeat of today

Shadows and light
fighting
while my life continues running
through that clock
that is not mine
through that clock
that is not mine


(Limbo, that place full of nothing in which it is easy to get lost)
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

Your video presentations just keep getting better. The use of color and contrast in this one is particular riveting. As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed the entire audio/visual experience of this song.

Great lyrics that conjured up thought provoking and enigmatic images. Excellent use of the English language which is not always an easy thing even for us English speaking songwriters.

I'm glad you are so prolific, Mora. I always look forward to your material.

I've been thinking which artist you remind me off with your style and the nearest I can think of is Laurie Anderson who was married to Lou Reed up until his death. Just like her, I feel you are always exploring at the edges which is good thing otherwise things can get very stale.

There are some musicians and songwriters who identify with a tribe and serve up their style of music for that particular tribe (style of music).
Then there are others who work at the edges, questioning, exploring and maybe merging other artistic elements into their music.

I know which one of those you are :-)

P.S. I love that drum sound at the start

Hi @Leonard Scaper
Thanks for checking.
 Lately, I do not see my works just as songs, maybe it's the winter of the years that makes me look for strong colors within my capabilities.

I am many Mora, and in each video,  one reflecting the pleasure of inventing stories, another by saying them with the voice of poetry, another by creating music or making an arrangement and another by portraying them with the hand of the painter. I do not always get it, but the challenge is worth it, yes!


Hi @oorlab
I like to see you again. Thanks for your comment and your recommendation. I have felt a good product. hahaha

@MrBouzouki Bouzouki.

It's funny to see how your thinking works and how you turn your ideas around ...until they are brought to a good port.

Thank you very much for your complimentary words, really, you have made me feel very important with your comparison.

A bonbon occasionally lifts your spirits.

This is another world, a world perhaps full of difficult experiences that have been seen or experienced.
I like your work, but at the same time, it seems me dark from an emotional point of view.
I think that in your next creations the sun should come out fully and let out that Peter Pan Tinkerbell that you have inside.

Congratulations  :makeitup:  :loveit:

Great @Mora Amaro La Loba  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

what a soundtrack  and interesting video! Btw, i see you editing your video in the last bit (haha, and using those images of you editing the video as the video  :ok: :ok:), but what software do you use to edit the images? i think @Bill from November Sound  also asked in another thread about what video software you / others use...

very nice to watch this  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

This being more performance art than song, I really cant add much.  But the visuals are very well done and flow well with the music.  Nice work

Hola @Rightly

I'm sorry that you can not always have access to the Internet. I thank you very much for your comment.
I hope you get somehow, if that makes you feel good, have the Internet whenever you need it. Well, I know, what I say are only words and reality is whatever it is.
At least when you have seen me I have served as a distraction.
Be well Rightly!

@Marcus Nalgaber
Sé muy bien lo que me quieres decir, yo ya le he escrito una carta a Peter Pan para que deje libre mi avatar y poder así volver a ser una Tinkerbell completa.... Gracias por tu deseo. :loveit: :doublebonk:

Hi @Dutchbeat

Thank you!

To create the music I work with Logic and I take advantage of many of its loops, loops that I make mine choosing the parts that I like and that I deal with later.

I also work with a keyboard according to the type of sound I'm looking for and the style of the song I'm playing at that moment.
Then I prepare the draft of the video. It is easy for me. Already making the music I know the images that I will need, it is as if my head worked on its own and programmed the storyboard.

To mount the video I do with Adobe Premiere although I've started to take a look at other video editing programs, for now, I'm still with Adobe.

Nobody has taught me, I'm learning with every new video I make.

I mix my own footage (I record anywhere unthinkable) with freely used footage, photos, everything I can use and curiously I get my videos to be a good complement to my music, which I'm proud of.

The last images show our video studio, in which Marcus and I, each with our tools, assemble the videos once the music is recorded in the sound studio that is separated from the rest to avoid noise nuisances or interruptions.

Eso es todo!!


@Knate
Thank you very much for your time and commenting.
