Love me please love me - Michel Polnareff (1966). Brillant song.To those who are born after 1995, this is "slow".When I was making music, my influences were mainly English/American. But among the few french songwriters, there was him. To me, he's the greatest french melodist after Gainsbourg. Of course, nobody will ever reach Gainsbourg, it's like Lou Reed... too unique/gifted.
There is no such thing as a piece of music that is “too easy”. I’m recording these two movements from Godard’s Suite de trois morceaux on Thursday as part of a flute summer symposium application requirements. I first heard the Allegretto in the 8th grade, when a friend was playing it for solo and ensemble competition. I then heard the Suite in it’s entirety in college when I worked on all three movements for a semester (that Waltz is no joke). After a day of teaching, I didn’t think I had the energy to put any work into these tonight, but something told me I could. And I accomplished a lot of what I was wanting to fix, especially in the Allegretto. Tomorrow I’ll work smarter and a little harder so that on Thursday, I can do what I do best: make music. #23of365#flute#fløte#flöte#flauto#music#throwback#nevereasy#alwayslearning#alwaysgrowing#musician#flutist#flautist#recording#soon#suite#godard#french#love
This shock transition from the opening scene of Brian DePalma’s SISTERS is indicative of how the filmmaker’s work -particularly early on-was influenced by Godard as much as it was by Hitchcock. What appeares to be a private moment of voyeurism in a gym locker room is revealed to be a CANDID CAMERA styled TV game show called (of course) PEEPING TOMS. We are snapped out of the complacent viewing of narrative and forced to look at the content critically. In interviews at the time DePalma stated that he wanted to be the American Godard and in many ways that turned out to be true.#briandepalma#godard#sisters#alfredhitchcock#hitchcock#filmmaking#filmcritic#cinematic
