ABCD-Tale is the name of my video this month, inspired by the beauty of blossoming nature in springtime.
The song is called Imperfect Circles and the lyrics are based on something Pablo Picasso once said: "Why should I copy this owl, this sea urchin? Why should I try to imitate nature? I might just as well try to trace a perfect circle."
I was working a lot with the different meaning of equal sounding words, like 'B' or 'be', 'C' or 'see', 'D-tale' or detail. In the last part I wanted to create a word square where the first syllables mean something together as much as the full sentences mean something else using the same sound but a different spelling.
ABCD-Tale (Imperfect Circles)
You try to draw a perfect circle but you fall out off line the first time around
So you will draw another circle and the flaws in the line define who you are
'Cause from these faulty imperfect circles you will draw a design for tales in your heart
And every A B C detail will count
Every A B C D - Tale
Every A B C
And you are perfect every A B, see your
Four seasons long
Tune out of time
Tell them your tale
Human you are
Today and here
Belong to you
Believe in yourself
A big thanks to Koen Schalkwijk on piano.
