Michel Caubet

La touche damnée

Suivie de Innocents

(short stories)

Une note interdite, un pianiste maudit. Un voyage aux quatre coins de l’Europe pour les suivre à la trace. Quel est le secret de Guido Monticelli, spécialiste mondial de Chopin ? C’est sa touche damnée.

Avec Innocents, Maria-Stella d’Azzuro nous fait voyager dans le temps et l’espace, de la Côte d’Argent au Piémont italien, d’Italie au sultanat d’Oman, des Iles Mascareignes aux ergs du Sahara, du Cap-Vert aux canaux d’Amsterdam. La beauté y est omniprésente, qui désarme les guerriers, attendrit les cœurs, ressuscite les morts.

Les innocents veillent, gardiens de l’harmonie. Ils savent discerner la moindre fausse note, aucun bémol ne leur échappe. Tant de dangers les guettent ! Où puiseront-ils leur force ? Il faut que l’imprévu, ou quelque providence, vienne briser la mécanique implacable du Mal. Alors ils triomphent. Une divinité secrète les protège, et le conte dévoile le trésor redoutable de ceux qui ont eu l’audace de s’en remettre à la toute-puissance de l’éternel Amour. …

THANKSGIVING 2018

Thursday, November 22

Illustrations, Annunzio Coulardeau, aka Hallah

The unnamed character in this long poem is trying to follow what is happening in his mind after the accident after he fell to the ground unconscious when trying to get back up after tying up his shoe. He is entirely locked up in his own self and he is even seeing himself from outside himself, he is the watcher, and the watchee is there lying on the sidewalk and then later on suffering on a hospital bed.

The trauma is deep and brutal and he may have lost his own mind at some time in this descent into pain, the worst pain being that he was no longer the master of himself, and yet he fought for some revival, some responsibility, for some modesty if not bashfulness. Suffering from being unable to hide, and passing water became an ordeal and he had to do it in spite of all. …

SIGIRI GRAFFITI

PRICELESS SPIRITUAL HERITAGE

FROM YESTERDAY’S HUMANITY

TO THE HUMANITY OF TOMORROW

Diyakapilla, October 5, 2005

Olliergues, December 27–31, 2005

After Sri Lanka’s King Kasyapa’s fall in 495 CE, Sigiriya goes back to being religious probably with pilgrimages. Many visitors are proved and documented. Inside the Mirror Wall covered with a special lustrous plaster, all along the gallery under the frescoes, between the 9th and the 13th centuries, essentially between the 9th and 11th centuries, visitors inscribed small poems in traditional form composed of two or four lines in full agreement with contemporary poetics. Note this confirms a high educational level among the visitors. These small poems known as the Sigiri Graffiti are most of the time signed and we thus can know the names and social positions of their authors. There are about 1,200 poems of which about 900 have been published: 685 by Dr. S. Paranavitana in 1956 and 150 in 1990 and 1994 by Benille Priyanka who is working on the remaining 300 or so. …

HANDEL’S AGRIPPINA MODERN INTERPRETATIONS AND THE ROLE OF COUNTERTENORS [Format Kindle]

Jacques COULARDEAU (Auteur), Ivan EVE (Auteur), Annunzio COULARDEAU (Illustrations)

Handel’s Agrippina was composed for the Carnival of Venice in 1709. It counts three male voices in the countertenor pitch and range in those days most often held by castratos. Centering on Jean-Claude Malgoire’s 2004 production first to come out on DVD, comparing it with two other productions on DVD that came out in the following years, but also with the recent production of Handel’s Faramondo, we study the four different dramatic values of countertenors in Handel’s operas. This leads us to an in-depth study of the re-emergence of countertenors after at least two centuries of quasi-silence. Is it a transient fad, a freaky sham or a long-running phenomenon? We will meet with two opposed opinions: Russell Oberlin’s in 2004 and Laura E. DeMarco’s in 2002. I will more or less follow Russell Oberlin who considers they allow the production of Handel’s operas and oratorios that had disappeared for two hundred and fifty years. Why can we witness now this epiphanic resurrection? …

Argument

Tout ce qui empêche

L’exercice de la pensée

S’oppose à la vie.

Ramanujam Sooriamoorthy, Bruynes.

Paris : L’Harmattan, 2020

L’installation planétaire d’une modique lingua franca dans le commerce, les transports, la technologie, les sciences, l’art, l’esthétique, le chant s’étendra-t-elle finalement jusqu’à l’intimité de cet exercice de notre pensée ? La langue française, dit-on — dans la Francophonie, sera, rassurez-vous, la langue que le monde parlera après-demain, bientôt, bref, dans quelques temps, si tout se passe bien. …

Alexander Marshack’s book was first written in 1968 and published soon after. The present edition I have explored was entirely re-edited and upgraded by the author in 1991. The research, and the fieldwork, for this book, were done essentially after the Second World War at a time when new techniques and technology were emerging in archaeological research. Marshack assumed what was available and used that the best he could, and as such was able to bring Ice Age archaeology to a new level of understanding. But we must not measure what he wrote and published with the criteria and parameters we can use today in this field where technology and actual research have been speeding up so fast over the last ten or twenty years that have brought up more than the previous seventy years. …
