Tim Allhoff Trio - Svenja
Is it about beauty or about death?
Duke Ellington - Transblucency
Oohh, what a tune of transcendent beauty. (I originally wanted to post the version of The Uncollected Duke Ellington Volume 1 because I think it’s even better but that’s a rare radio recording so it’s hard to find it in the internet. So… go to your local record store and ask for it, it’s worth it!)
Egon Schiele, Sleeping Figure with Blanket, 1910.
This is really beautiful for me.
Because I consider it as a piece of fantasy, a piece that is made to dream a history around it or dream it into a history.
You don’t know who the person in the blanket is. Is it a man or a woman, a girl or a boy…? What is its life like? Where is this figure placed in the room? Is it on a bed or on the floor? Where is it? Why is it where it is?
The patterns on the blanket: Is there a meaning in it? You could imagine it as the reflection of a city or as a symbol for something… you can see it as meaningless.
I love it because you can do everything you want with it. It is a piece to be imagined.
Ever since I seen her smile, I ain’t forgotten her eyes
She had a face that could outshine the sun in the skies"
