  • Novatia - The Night is Filled with Colors (Art Rocks)

    530 views 8 months ago
    Voor de muziekcompetitie van www.artrocks.nl schreven wij 'The Night is Filled with Colors'. Uit de 50 kunstwerken sprong er voor ons duidelijk eentje uit: “Caféterras bij nacht” van Vincent van Gogh. Het pointillisme en kleurgebruik van van Gogh sluit heel sterk aan hoe we bij Novatia het componeren van muziek benaderen. Geen harde lijnen maar een samenspel van noten die collectief het totaalbeeld schetsen dat we willen overbrengen. Zoeken naar de juiste klankkleuren om de gewenste sfeer op te roepen. Oog voor de details om het hele plaatje te laten kloppen (zoals van Gogh op dit schilderij deed met de sterrenhemel ). Individuele techniek in dienst van de kunst en niet als middel tot zelfprofilering.

    Muzikaal hebben we geprobeerd de sfeer van de zwoele nazomeravonden in Arles op te roepen en tekstueel hebben we gepoogd vorm te geven aan de opwinding die van Gogh ongetwijfeld moet hebben gevoeld toen hij stuitte op het kleurrijke tafereel bij het café op de Place du Forum.

    De tekst:
    Sleep won't come, this Indian summer night
    Walk the streets, observing the world
    My tired eyes look up towards the midnight sky




    Thousand stars draw lines across the night
    Dots of paint on the canvas of the sky
    Constellations etched in deep blue steel
    They touch my heart, let me know that I am real

    As I walk on to forum square
    The only sound that hits my ear
    Hissing of the streetlight's gas
    Drowned out by laughs and ringing glass

    Looking up from the cobblestone causeway
    What I see takes my breath away
    I don't understand
    How these colors all unite to fill the night

    No one seems to be alone
    After all, I feel at home
    There is no room for emptiness
    The colorful people, lit up the dark

    I will capture everything
    Each stroke and every note
    Let the night stay awake
    Hold the dawn, and stay the night (with me)

    The faces are lit by a rosy glow
    The midnight shakes the memory
    At a point of no return
    The emptiness appears alone

    Now that I have seen it all
    I need to tell her everything
    With only words I can’t control
    The richness that the colors hold Show less
