I could work on Flamme, another of Allerseelen’s old songs characterized by a particular cabaret atmosphere that smells of Twenties.
With the open-mindedness that I recently recognize in few artists, Gerhard has placed another of Allerseelen’s historical pieces in my hands.
Working on this song was a lot of fun and relaxing because I could relate to it
in a 1920s atmosphere very far from the conceptual heaviness that characterizes me (sic!).
After all, this is also what attracts me working for Allerseelen: having the possibility of identifying myself every time in totally different situations and characters.
Gerhard’s broad musical vision always offers new insights in conceptual and musical research to the point of forcing me to explore new vocals.
Flamme in this version was released a few months on the Morgenröte album.
See you very soon for updates on our fruitful collaboration.
“Oui, je sais bien d’où je viens !
Inassouvi, comme la flamme,
J’arde pour me consumer.
Ce que je tiens devient lumière,
Charbon ce que je délaisse :
Car je suis flamme assurément ! “
Nietzsche, poème “Ecce Homo” in “Le Gai Savoir”
