Lyrics
I Feel Lonely
So lonely in the dark
The sky is grey
And the rain is pouring down
Light is like a shadow
Nothing else to do
Nothing…
Nothing… but wait
Ooh… Suddenly the sky is turning blue
The clouds disappear
And the blue is lightning

I feel good now
I feel good now

Ouuhh… I wanna dance
Oh… Or maybe a little bit later
Well, I don’t know… It depends
Mmh… Music’s good

I feel like a child

Mmh.. Take some rest now

Time to go ahead
This is amazing
This sound is really good

Just don’t know what to do
Just don’t know what to say
Except it’s so beautiful
I like the way it sounds

Feel better and better now

Calm down.. Calm down
Take a deep breath
Think ahead

It swings now
Mmh.. Great
I also like the congas

For sure I will dance now

It really sounds good
Funny… And happy

This is the way I feel
This is the way I feel
I feel happy now
I feel happy now
This is the way I feel

  • www.jfklibrary.org/learn/about-jfk…ns-space-effort »
  • Music : VicomtiX
  • Lyrics : NA
  • Vocal : NA
Anecdote : Initially a wish to explore the VST HALion Symphonic Orchestra, it turned into a double tribute to all those men and women who conquer space and to the composer Gustav Mahler.
A combination of 2 universes, the space, the future and the stellar sounds on one hand, and the softness and the classic sounds on the other hand.
With a touch of revisited cult speech.

Text
The vast stretches of the unknown
and the unfinished
still far outstrip
the 50,000 years
of man’s recorded history

Man emerged from his caves
man learned to write
and use
the steam engine
new sources of power
electric lights, telephones, automobiles, airplanes, television
and nuclear power
Create new ills, new ignorance, new problems, new dangers
So, move forward…

His quest for knowledge
is one of the great adventures of all time
we mean to be a part of it
we mean to lead it
new knowledge and new rights
new techniques of learning
new tools and computers
will become a force for good

This conquest deserves the best of all mankind
We do not intend to stay behind
Why climb the highest mountain

We choose to go to the moon
because that goal will serve the best
of our energies and skills
not because they are easy
but because they are hard

I am delighted to be here

Anecdote : A song conceived by Esynth for his induction at the 'Burn's Night'. The version of the album has been processed by the hands of EdiptiX who disentangled it and re-build it completely. Only the introduction bells are the remains of intitial version.

Text
(Robert Burns « Wounded Hare »)
Inhuman man!
Curse on thy barb’rous art,
And blasted be thy murder-aiming eye;
May never pity soothe thee with a sigh,
Nor ever pleasure glad thy cruel heart.

Poor wanderer of the wood and field!
The bitter little that of life remains
No more the thickening brakes and verdant plains
To thee shall home, or food, or pastime yield.

Inhuman man
Inhuman man
Go live

Seek, mangled wretch, some place of wonted rest,
No more of rest, but now thy dying bed!
The sheltering rushes whistling o’er thy head,
The cold earth with thy bloody bosom prest.
Oft as by winding Nith, I, musing, wait
The sober eve, or hail the cheerful dawn;
I’ll miss thee sporting o’er the dewy lawn,
And curse the ruffian’s aim, and mourn thy hapless fate.

Inhuman man
Inhuman man
Go live

Go Liiiiiive

  • Samples : NA
  • Music : EdiptiX
  • Lyrics : VicomtiX
  • Vocal : VicomtiX
Anecdote : Inspired from a jam session (code name Live0040) from which it incorporates some recordings, this track evolves in 3 parts symbolizing our existence in the universe as well as the existence of the universe itself.
Part 1 is the birth of the universe, even before we existed.
Part 2 is the period where we exist in the universe.
Part 3 follows the universe as we are no longer part of it...does the universe also have a finite existence?

Lyrics
There was a time
I wasn’t there

There is the time
I’m here

There will be a time
I won’t be anymore

And the universe keeps going on
