In a Weird Chalet
The Dacianos album Fables for Another Time
1. Quantum Suicide
Quantum Suicide is a scientific thought experiment. The scientist sits
in front of a gun that is set up to either trigger or misfire, depending
on the decay of a radioactive atom. With each run of the experiment, there
is a 50% chance the gun will trigger. Under the Copenhagen interpretation
of quantum mechanics, the gun will eventually kill the scientist. But
if the ‘many-worlds’ interpretation is correct, then at each
run of the experiment there will be a universe in which the scientist
lives, and another in which he dies. The scientist can only ever be conscious
of the world in which he LIVES, and so never seems to die. This leads
to the fanciful speculation that the many-worlds interpretation implies
all conscious beings are immortal.
2. All You Can Do is Love
Many years ago, I had a lucid dream in which I was on my back on a little
boat floating slowly along a dark cavern. Lining the walls were stone
angels. Before I passed them, to float on into the darkness, I had time
to ask them questions about my life. They answered without moving their
lips. I heard instead a deep voice at the back of my head. The advice
was 'All you can do is love, the rest is out of your hands.' (The song
is more concerned with things that came to mind a couple of years later
but those angels want to be a permanent part of the background) - Barry
3. Lucette Visits Céline in Prison
If I had known how beautiful this song would turn out, I would not have written it about this - Barry.
'Il n'empêche qu'on l'a gardé en prison deux ans, dans la
cellule des condamnés à mort, sans air, sans... Juste un
petit soupirail et, pour nourriture, trois carottes et un citron. Une
fois par semaine, j’allais le voir Toutes nos rencontres se tenaient
en anglais, la seule langue autorisée. Dans sa cellule, il était
enchaîné. Ce qu'il en rapporte dans ses livres est d'ailleurs
au-dessous de la vérité. ça a été bien
plus dur qu'il ne le dit' - Lucette Destouches.
When it came to writing songs, I used only chord changes that I found
emotionally affecting, I would find a melody to go with them and then
I would work on the lyrics to match. Each song was supposed to be unified
in this way. Those were my only criteria - Barry.
'Favoritten er nr 5. Nydelig med kontrastene i duetten, og nakent landskap
med cello' - Marius Kolbenstvedt.
