VALLIAS


that pleasure which is at once the most pure
the most elevating and the most intense, is derived
I maintain, from the contemplation 
of the beautiful

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind Vallias

forgive me Father Vallias
for I have sinned

ok, for those of you out there
wondering if I'm beginning to lose it
ok, guilty pleasure

how did I get here?  ... don't ask
losing it?  ... maybe, just maybe

sometimes I see things, I shouldn't be seeing
thinking things, I shouldn't be thinking
doing things, I shouldn't be doing
but it's always been like that
ever since I can remember

getting to express it ... like this is a blast


I just found the sounds, then the pictures in youtube, joined them
and started remixing everything, together
in a semi-random fashion at first
forming a new picture
a few fine touches
the final buff
blog it

just fun

being able to scream in my dream
whilst watching her moving like that?

cathartic

ØFDREAM - TRILOGY




Ø F D R E A M  -  T R G Y
volume up


in May 2019 a gifted young Parisian DJ took his life
he went by the name - øfdream

he had/has very little internet presence
stumbling across a YouTube clip w/his beats on it
masterfully executed







it was like they were unfinished pieces
brilliant and yet crying out for closure
safe to say that he started 
and I finished them

I took 3 of my favourite tracks from the 12 or so I found
remixed and did videos for each

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH:  
the story behind fallen angel

it's my 3rd and final øfdream remix
I've listened to everything and for me
it's finishing what he started ... his best 3 IMO
then the videos

brilliant Parisian DJ who killed himself earlier this year
(story in an earlier chapter)
sprinkling his prodigy in scattered bits then gone

after finding his fallen angel and remixing the track in logic
I just went fishing for clips in youtube
w/ 'fallen angel, dance, HD' in search
and found this amazing clip 
from the Netherlands Dance Theatre

combining them, was like introducing
two soulmates for the first time

this was fun

I AM FREE

I don't have to tell you things are bad
everyone knows they're bad
it's a depression - everybody's out of work 
or scared or scared of losing their job

the dollar buys a nickel's worth
banks are going bust
shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter

howard beale


I  A M  F R E E
volume up









so, I want you to get up now 
and go to the window
open it and stick your head out and YELL
I'm as mad as hell
and I'm not going to take this 
anymore

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind reach for the sky


he who gives away 
shall have real gain 
he who subdues himself shall be free 
and shall cease to be a slave of passions 
the righteous man casts off evil
and by rooting out lust, bitterness, and illusion
do we reach nirvana


buddah
