The Slap 06:28
Oh golden boy So charming Your hands so lively But your lust untimely    Brunette and blonde, So tempting But just one is your girl (And she’s quite possessive)   And so shame on you You broke the last taboo as you were Hoping to get a blonde to kiss you But you got a brunette And a slap   It’s all red and it hurts so bad because of the slap   Hey man, you were so confident, but then You see: hubris, that’s the name You grew too bold, and now your cheek’s red ‘Cause of the slap   Allow me to explain with my own words How I got involved in this regrettable situation You’re not so cool as you think Well I had a tough day Oh poor thing! And as it wasn’t enough I met that blonde Oh such a bad day, a tough day (not cool!) Yeah but let me explain: That girl has always turned me on And by the way, that night I drank too much And under those circumstances I tend to act like a… How would you say? Like a jerk There’s no need to insult! Please! I mean: you were there with your girlfriend! Flirting with another girl right next to your girlfriend! Got it. Now can I go on?  Where were we? Right: your attempt to cuckold. Talk! So: we’re at the bar, My girl is there and she’s the most beautiful girl in town Yeah, got it But the blonde showed up And so what? Well… There we go… I was misunderstood Sure… (Besides, my girl’s temperament is pretty wild) Ok, can we get to the point? What point? You know what, when you get slapped Hey! Did it hurt? Did it hurt so bad when you got slapped? Oh golden boy You failed Five purple fingers On your pretty face   Blonde and brunette It’s too much Warm tears are streaking Down your red cheek.

The High Bar 04:03
This guy lives a very busy life Whirling all day around the town Full of doubts, still the job gets done Just sometimes he forgets why he began   Inch by inch on an infinite path Sometimes he’s quite unsatisfied And then at night, before he falls asleep His mind starts wandering high   A gymnast at the high bar He’s flying so far, so high In the dark, through a spot of light   High bar, where are you hurling me? without an end hurling forgetful   He tries to find out what all this is about, Where does the nexus lie Full of doubts, is he going nuts? In fact he just forgets when it began   Listen man, this high bar twirling stuff, I think it came out of your mind Keep going my friend, Next time you wonder why Just twirl on the high bar   (Movement: vaulting nature)   Vaulting so high: A gymnast at the high bar He’s flying so far, so high In the dark, through a spot of light   High bar, where are you hurling me, without an end, hurling high High, higher

Hypnotic 07:50
Hypnotic, un-earthlty touch I behold you Never felt such Awe inside me I’m hypnotised by you  Silk goddess, delight   Hypnotised, I fear I’ve lost my mind There’s just you, silk goddess Sunken notes: that’s all I’m hearing Somewhere else, all time is just outside   The first time I met you You were outside You kept me Away A while You chose me You left me no choice You called me Refused me Deceived me Controlled me Away A while Then back The pendulum goes Away A while   I’m your prey I knew the risks, still You got me trapped I know you more Than you would think Still, I have no choice Deadly sweet poison   It was on a rainy night : first time I saw you But it was a sunny day when I lost control All I’m asking is to drink some of your sweet poison Give me some of it again, please give it to me I’m yours since the first time I felt on me Your hypnotic, un-earthlty touch I behold you Never felt such Awe inside me I’m hypnotized by you  Silk goddess, delight   Hypnotized, You know I’ll do everything you want Everything you ask to me, do as you please   Hypnotized, I think I’ve lost control   Softly hypnotic I will drink your poison Hypnotic goddess Gladly I will abandon myself I’ll do what you want, as you please You own me now (mystical union) I lost control But I fear no more

Hey Weirdo! 04:42
Come, people like you don’t hang around a lot So here’s what you get: you’re upset, lost the bet when you met The grimly, steady face of this cold rock we know as the world And while you stagger as you search for anything  To hang on, you’re not wrong, there’s a song playing on About the fact that you are not the only one who’s trying To find a way, but at the same time you feel that it should be Your own way, and so the song will tell you: “Kid, don’t worry, that’s OK, go your way, hear me saying, I like your style and to me you’re OK, go your way, go on Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo!”   You were sitting at your school desk, next to your Best friend, and suddenly you felt a shock wave Coming from behind: it was the girl with the Slightly brownish tooth, who loudly coughed (and it Turns out she was the ex of another friend). You laughed so hard and you went on and on and on, The holy cough is the mother of all the gags   Mother of all the gags, you call it ‘The shout’, and for decades you’ve been laughing Like a fool. He, who used to Be with her, well, You’ve been hiding it To him, and it’s so much fun. Hey Weirdo!   You’re such a weirdo and please Don’t ever change ‘cause your mom told you so, or the priest Told you so, or the trainer who works at the gym. What am I saying? You at the gym? It’s unlikely Wait, what have you said? You do go to the gym? Well, you see: stereotypes… Anyway, let’s go back To my point, I was saying: never change, I’m OK With your brownish teeth humour, the shout and the Innocent laughing behind your friend’s back, well I say Hey weirdo!   Hard boiled daydreamers: it’s fine Also your slutty girlfriend: she’s fine too Your sainted truck driver daddy: well, he’s fine And the queer fawn and even dolphin granny: they’re welcome Laughing so hard Hey weirdo, good friend of mine, you’re welcome here   Come, people like you don’t hang around a lot So here’s what you get: you’re upset, lost the bet when you met The grimly, steady face of this cold rock we know as the world And while you stagger as you search for anything  To hang on, you’re not wrong, there’s a song playing on About the fact that you are not the only one who’s trying To find a way, but at the same time you feel that it should be Your own way, and so the song will tell you: “Kid, don’t worry, that’s OK, go your way, And I’ll be right next to you Hey weirdo, go your way Just hear me calling you weirdo Just go your way, weirdo, hey!

Look at the book: Can you guess the colour of the back cover? And now that I’ve turned it over: Is that what you were thinking? Watch it again, and try to figure out its content   So now you’ve read it, Compared past and present Perceptions influencing knowledge Speech building vortical mountains of infinite   Stratification: of thoughts, of meanings and of bodies, Of every point of view in every story, In the crack of the intersection between you, me, and them Geology, narration, synesthesia.
11.
These arms of mine are yearning to reach you To hold you again, while you get sleepy Muttering your pointless defences out And I met better women, Women loving me more, women loving for real Yet, I can’t get lost in their eyes, as I think of yours Shining a different, arcane, unreachable shine.   I wonder why we try and try to be even more sad and lonely In search of enemies among our friends Sanity lost for pride, delusions   No, I don’t belong here No, I don’t belong now No, I don’t belong, no. (And it feels like I don’t belong, not now) I wonder why, why we wonder why   Scars get deeper while I linger on these delusions, Lose my grasp   I wonder why I wonder: looks like there’s no point Perceptions fade, and truth is now illusion Ready to fight, to suffer, die for delusions It looks like there’s no point, reason to wonder Yet we wonder, we are beasts and we kill each other, beasts only bound to slaughter   Soft embraces become rare and lose their warmth as I linger on these delusions   Let us sleep a black and dreamless sleep, and Let’s forget this heavy pounding heartbeat.

Loomings is a one of a kind musical universe of mingled voices and percussions, acoustic and electronic sounds. Our songs follow unpredictable paths: sometimes they emerge from complex compositional strategies, sometimes they’re just driven by the desire to walk through harmonies, vocal arabesques, instrumental unisons and phases. ... more
