Wto 19 II – Quidam, HipGnosis

... every one of us can be like Quidam...

Has any of you experienced "music"
That overtakes you with disappearing flute notes,
The birds coming off the guitar's neck excite your thoughts,
The voice takes your mind far away from ire, sadness and evil??

Can any of you tell me, who other than Quidam,
Will I be able to forget about the grayness of the day,
Fall asleep and float away, cave in and not reminiscent,
Disappear and not curse...wake up and experience again??

We know bands in Poland playing lively and happy tunes,
Ones we can sweat it out dancing to :)
If this is what someone will look for in Quidam,
He will be heavily disappointed ...:)

What we have here is music which is (at least for me) fulfilling dreams of being within the space of music, meaning being woven in by its branches which is what Quidam is, our innersoul.

At the concert at Club "Zascianek" one could experience real music adventure, a trip to one's own sanctuary...
...There is a place, where solitude has its home.
...It is "my" place, I talk to my soul there.
...It shelters "me" from rain, it shelters "me" from wind, from evil it shelters "me"...

For the first time I heard Bartek Kossowicz singing the "Sanktuarium" in proper person, about himself?? Words of this song in earlier concerts were sang in third person (just like the halfPLUGGED album) which did not suit the song's character. Bartek Kossowicz changed with the text change (and I do not mean his appearance:), he's got more sure of himself, he sings expressively and clearly.

Alone Together is a specific album. I would even say, one straying far away from the way Quidam went until now... the emotions overtake anything the group accomplished before. At Club "Zascianek" I had a strong proof of that:

"I carry love on my shoulders, don't look back 'cos I'm alone"

Not to mention surREvival Tour concerts , we don't need to anymore, what's important is what will happen tomorrow, what had happened after Club "Zascianek":

"Many years has passed since that winter night, now close your eyes and try to forgive just one mistake"

But "Wish You Were Here" played and sang in the true spirit of Pink Floyd, enriched with Maciek Meller’s virtuosy could and did bring tears... I think that the Australian Pink Floyd will not give me what Quidam did on that warm wet February evening ... On my hand a small tear, and in my eyes laugh, and all around you...my friend from Last.fm

I would just mention about " *Ruralness *Zascianek " climate of the venue, its stationary lighting and poor acoustics which may interrupt concert reception (it was in my way of taking pictures). But do you remember the concert in the ideal, sterile Studio S-5 of Radio Krakow in Poland?? - in which the band and the public got stuck 100 toothpicks in throats it was not pleasant for the musicians and myself  I prefer 100 times more a poor venue where I can be near the band, near the music than "ideal" fake setting.

... you know I can not give a concert review like its done in mass media, I don't know how to, I can not, I wouldn't be myself...


PS I would like to thank Quidam, that for 10 years they are like my shadow, thanks to them I keep on discovering my inner self. Quidam, please be forever this incentive in my life :)

Thank you all who could be with me at this concert, as well as those who wanted but could not attend.

...for my friend Andrea =^..^=

    [b]kinds of solitude at night[/b] 
[i]when dreams into nightmares fall 
I close the door to shadows' land 
visions haunt my heart and soul
s weet smell of all the memories in the air
 yearning to be carried away 
falling to their charm
 numb throughout the day
 counting hours
 pining for a change 
desire to escape
 all my thoughts is automatic 
trying to fight them I wish that I could feel so 
calm when the night is falling 
calm when the night is in the air
 calm when the night is close
 come with the darkest night…[/i] <deep_sigh> … oooh how i wish, how i wish …i could have been there … with you, my friend:) so thanks a million:) … for that very special journal (and translation) … ,,,=^..^=,,, …mrrr:)

  • CHORUS_

    I seldome come to the river of memories At present it is not a place where i can rest I always immerse my feet and temples in it's waters To feel once more the warmith of its currents I seldome come to the river of memories At present it is not a place where i can rest I always immerse my feet and temples in its waters To feel once more the warmith of its currents I see you standing on the other bank Reaching out your weakening hands I will not come to your side yet Bridges of hope quiver in the wind So restlessly I am looking for our places Time irrevocably slips quietly away And so often now we lack the words to express The helpessness that has grown withinn us And so often now i ask why it is worth trying To live again on every dawning day Who, who can change the trail of my thoughts And turn the river of memories into a gently flowing stream?? <trail_of_my_thoughts> ( =^..^= =^..^= )

  • CHORUS_

    Here i am on the desert of life In my thoughts i'm writing a letter With my heartbeat i greet the dawn So many questions cling to my lips So many emotions bare the fragility of feelings I am learning to listen to the silence of music - like a swollen stream My dry throat protects me from too many words Too hasty they can hurt so much It's your face that i'm searching For another day I cannot live without you No, not any more Everything changes But i am still waiting for that fire And hide my face behind longing The tempting scent of the wet ground refreshes me And somehow simpler and somehow more tenderly You know what i need Though i learnt today that what i feel Needn't be true It's your face that i'm searching For another day I cannot live without you No, not any more Everything changes But i am still waiting for that fire Still waiting... =^..^= =^..^= From Deep River to Riverside 1991 -2008 Qudidam - Andrea, try to find book (poem) Quidam by Cyprian Kamil Norwid , perhaps the most intriguing of Polish romantic poets. The title hero of that poem is a man looking for his place in life, searching for goodness and truth, like someone of us......every one of us can be like Quidam...:) ...remember my voice, remember my choice...CHORUS for You =^..^= Moje Zapomnienie - kinds of solitude at night
