"But in my dreams began to creep
that old familiar 'tweet, tweet, tweet'

(...) I opened my mouth to scream and shout
waved my arms and flapped about
But I couldn't scream I couldn't shout,
The song was coming from my mouth.

From my mouth, from my mouth"

("BIRD SONG", by Florence + The Machine)

s§s

This is a collaboration I made with my brilliant friend ~prialanis! The composition / concept is 99,9% by her. The only thing I made was to add the idea of the twilight sky, the rest came all from her insanely creative imagination. Thanks a lot pal, I really loved doing this collab! :heart: I hope we join our powers #CaptainPlanet and make more of them in the future! =D

About the piece:
The piece was inspired by Florence's "Bird Song", but it was a little twisted in a nice way, because the original idea behind the song is very dark - Florence is confessing she did something wrong but the more she tried to hide it from people around her, the more evident it was and it was making her going nuts, probably because she regreted what she had done that much.

Here, Florence is actually releasing her music to the world through the form of this little bird, which is her music coming to life, her musical essence embodied in a light form.

Enjoy! :wave:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Mas em meus sonhos, começou a formigar
Aquele velho conhecido 'tweet, tweet, tweet'...

(...) Eu abri a minha boca para gritar e gritar,
Balancei e sacudi os meus braços para cima e para baixo
mas eu não conseguia gritar, eu não conseguia gritar
A canção estava vindo de meus lábios

De meus lábios, de meus lábios"

("BIRD SONG", by Florence + The Machine)

s§s

Essa é uma collab que fiz com a minha brilhante amiga ~prialanis! A composição / idéia é 99,9% dela; a única coisa que acrescentei foi o cenário crepuscular / pôr-do-sol, o resto veio todo da insana e criativa imaginação dela. Valeu de montão Tia, adorei fazer essa collab! :heart: Espero unirmos nossos poderes #CapitãoPlaneta e fazer mais no futuro! =D

Sobre a pintura:
Foi inspirada pela música da Florence chamada "Bird's Song", mas o conceito original da letra foi um pouco alterado porque ela é bem sinistrona, para variar - lá, a Florence confessa que fez algo errado, mas quando mais ela quer esconder isso das pessoas ao redor dela, mais fica escancarado para todos verem e isso vai perturbando ela mais e mais, provavelmente por estar se corroendo de remorso.

Aqui, a Florence na verdade está liberando a música dela para o mundo sob a forma daquele passarinho, que é música viva, a essência musical dela sob a forma de luz.

Enjoy! :wave:
