Jamsession / new band project assignment

Homework1

Jam-session Project homework assignment:

“Describe the kind of music you would like to make, by what it is inspired and how you envision it. Use feelings, keywords and subtle descriptions.”

Hm… Okay, that’s an interesting idea. I don’t know yet if it’s gonna live up to your expectations, but for myself and my future musical projects this is an interesting question as well – so let’s just make a beginning!

The music I want to make has to be pure, honest, from the heart, primal. It has to work, in the sense that it just has it’s basic ingredients that supplement each-other. Everything that’s in it should have it’s function and fit. Less is more, to me music has a function. It has to portray something or invoke something, and whatever it is that you are trying to express – the message should be clear.

Skirnismal
Translated by Dave Muijen aka SjpielseWolf

Freyr, the son of Njord, sat on his throne Hlidskjalf. When he was sitting there, he could oversee all the worlds. He gazed from his throne to Jotunheim, where the giants live. He saw how a pretty girl walked from her father’s hall to her own room. He liked the looks of the girl so much, that he fell instantly in love with her! He wouldn’t eat, he wouldn’t talk, and could only think about this beautiful, but unknown girl.

Freyr-Large

Skirnismal
Vertaald door Dave Muijen aka SjpielseWolf

Freyr, de zoon van Njord, zat op een dag op de troon Hlidskjalf. Als hij daar zat, kon hij alle werelden overzien. Hij keek vanuit zijn troon naar Jotunheim, waar de reuzen wonen. Hij zag hoe een mooi meisje van haar vaders zaal naar haar eigen kamer liep. Hij vond het meisje zó mooi, dat hij op slag verliefd werd! Hij at niet meer, sprak niet meer, en dacht alleen nog maar aan dat mooie, maar onbekende meisje.

Njord, de vader van Freyr weet niet wat er met zijn zoon aan de hand is. Daarom vraagt hij Skirnir, de vriend en dienaar van Freyr om met hem te praten.
