More info about this song:
Pure, contemporary jazz. Geometry and music, fused in a theme that takes its inspiration from Cubist painting.
On the track, Anthus, a keen admirer of Cubism, pays tribute to the idea of a great French painter and father of the Cubist movement, Paul Cézanne, who saw life and all objects in it in three basic forms: cubes, spheres and cylinders. Cézanne considered these three elements key to recreating, in painting, the universe around him. And that is how the Cubist movement began.
Anthus also feels himself to be surrounded by a world in which elements take different forms and can be observed from different angles, changing according to the light. And they form different layers, one over the other, shapes and lights becoming a single being. We are one, but we are also, potentially, infinite.
Cubes, spheres and cylinders are also shapes that a kaleidoscope creates. This song reveals a beautiful, harmonious combination of geometric forms that provide the image for a truly delightful composition, music that enchants us, leading us on from the track’s beginning to its end. Our own lives, translated into changing geometric forms that reveal our multiple being, our personal diversity.
