Latest post of the previous page:

Hehe, Circe thought she could turn Odysseus into a pig, but he kind of already was, so he porked her, and she liked it. Obviously.

This has more subtlety:



Behind the 7th door they'll all go, when they've finally drained their men of all their love.

Technically extravagant, dramatic and powerful, but the atmosphere isn't really there. This may be interpreted as the sound of a ship in distress, going under. But I cannot hear the supernatural element of the Flying Dutchman much, in this piece. Wagner's version is far superior, but even that lacks the eerie qualities, but then again it's an opera, and not a symphonic poem.

Glazunov's sinister pastoral; an implied horror emerging gradually from the idyllic, and then disappearing again, leaving an eerie mood.

The Sea, the sublime. Tranquil yet merciless, giver and taker; the mother of all life. Rising, as we speak, to take back her due. :twisted:

Magnificent, and could have passed as one of the items in Holst's Planets. Imagine, perhaps, prehistoric Earth, with organic life evolving from protoplasm.

This has something of the same, something coming alive, somehow, slowly working itself into existence:



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omphale

Match that myth if you will, with certain tendencies in modern society.

And inevitably leading to:



Disruption of the natural order, and the rise of that which forever dwelleth beneath. Or, as Nietzsche pointed out, 2000 years of Christianity has not altered human nature in the slightest. The double-meaning of the word loom, as it were... :twisted:

An enigma of sound, a lingering musical question mark, being no more or less than exactly that. So absolutely perfect, it's actually frightening.

None shall sleep...



The concert poster for Turandot is one of the greatest examples of art deco, by Leopoldo Metlicovitz: https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turandot# ... randot.jpg

I have it as the front cover for the printed score with the sheet music inside, in Danish version. Probably worth quite a few bob, but I'm not gonna lose any sleep over it.

Seems another post of mine became prophetic, cf. corona. Even the link died! :haha:

Before Creation there was Chaos. It sounded like this, according to Haydn. So, who created Chaos, then. God? No, he was haydn at the time. Fair enough. Where? :haha: BTW, something quite familiar at 1:09, and then it slips away...

A true artist of the weird. It's like the soundtrack to this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyatlov_Pass_incident Wish Lovecraft had heard that. It matches his idea of The Music of Erich Zann, the eccentric loner virtuoso, who plays in a steeple at night, before a completely black window showing a different space, to ward off otherworldly evils, trying to invade our dimension.
