Stella Novae is…
I would say it’s rendering tribute to texts
we’ve heard a thousand time
and that can become at some point invigorating because we’ve heard them so many times, in identical
or pompous ways…
and here I said why not taking texts whether known
or not, from Baudelaire to Racine
and there is even a text from Michelangelo
who used to write sonnets, which I recently discovered and it’s staggering, but this is in Italian…
but why not choosing texts, read or sing them
but with a music that is phantasmagorical, that will be
a fusion in my styles form Arrows, to Indigo Dreams,
crossing to Safar
and the whole thing in a operatic mode,
hence, with a strong feeling
we put an even bigger dimension to these texts giving them the physical feeling of each word
and with Steeve we have a working relationship that works quite good
and I’m very happy we did it because in this album
we swing from theater to Comedia del Arte
to pure poetry, to songs and dreams, to onirism
there are texts from Frédérique Deghelt,
a text from Apollinaire,
there is really a wide range, a part of the authors that Steeve and I appreciate.
