Who Dwells Where ~~ Winter Solstice Musical Theme

Consider this a fully non-linear intuitive selection based solely upon very subjective personal engagement.  Each piece in its own way connects to dwelling in, between and beyond in some fashion. I’ve decided not to elaborate or comment on these in order to leave it open for your ears and eyes.  Much thanks to Simon for lending his poem Turned, Gone On to this Musical Theme posting.


Winter Solistice ~ Cold Specks


Wikipedia:  2013 Female Artist of the Year  SiriusXM Indies Awards[7

Cold Specks is a band led by Al Spx, the pseudonym of a Canadian singer-songwriter based in London, England.[1] Her musical style has been described as doom soul and shows the influence of American deep south gospel with a strong goth streak.[2] She signed with Mute Records at the beginning of 2012.

We fell from a dying tree
We wait for it to leave
I wanna be, I wanna be
Leave ashes for borrowed instruments and borrowed hearts
We will pass them on to every saint and dead lover
I have my God so give me my ghosts

Sons and daughters,
may you kill what my blind heart could not
Sons and daughters,
may you kill what my blind heart could not
Sons and daughters,
may you kill

I saw your grandfather’s death on the news
Remembered when you took me to your room
You put your hand over your chest
Swore that the fire would rage

Whoa I…
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
I put my hand over my chest, sons and daughters
Swore that the fire would rage

Yeah, you know better ways to fall
Yeah, you know better ways to fall
You know better ways to fall
You knock me down, knock me down
Put my cold hand over my cold heart
Turn the fire and die whoa
Turn the fire and die whoa
Turn the fire to die

TURNED, GONE ON (requiem)

Stillness now, lost blue and empty silence.
After wracked storm, tearing breath,
Tangled rain. The howling
Has ceased, calm, calm.

Where sun reaches, there
Is hope of a little warmth.
But little warmth in shade,
Little warmth when the face
Turns away from light.

Calm void where you have gone,
Spacious, rested, freed from pain of time.
Naked void where you were,
Are, no longer.
The empty fields,
The stiff sloped horizon,
The days ahead unformed, vast.

These winter roads
Will lead to a surprise of spring,
But not soon, not soon.
Not before the world becomes ragged.
It must become ready, choosing, too,
Letting go what is,
Letting uncertainty bloom.
Too tired to breathe
One last slow, drawn out,
Whispered breath.

The void of skies
Fills slowly with new cloud dreams.
The scoured earth will clothe its scars
In new skins of green life.
The hollows will slowly fill,
The woods, they will be bound in birdsong.
It will become gentle, dancing once more.
But not soon,
Not soon.

    Hi Eva,
    I going to “publish” my “Home for the Holidays” blog post early. I shall be away from the computer and may miss posting altogether if I don’t do it now. Thank you for all that you have done.
    Merry Christmas

    Eva, I love your picture. I just noticed to my left that there is a way to procure your artistry…checking that out. I will give reviews. ☆☆☆☆☆

    These animations you find enrich my life in some way every time I watch one. The Silence Beneath the bark is the best yet. I found myself wanting to help them solve the problem.

    I have an English Springer Spaniel that I think would make a great sled dog. The only problem is a lack of snow. Maybe I’ll get to try it one day while he’s still young.

    All around great picks. This is an exceptional ☆☆☆☆☆☆ (6!)

    Merry holidays Eva! : )

      Hello Johnny. Thank you for your kind words regarding Void. Hope you enjoy venturing into energyscapes. Reviews are good. It’s interesting finding out what resonates with people.

      The Silence Beneath the Bark grabbed me with its sound effects. I couldn’t break away from watching it the first time soooo here it is. It has visual and thematic movement from one state to another–from dwelling quietly to movement to transformation. I think it’s quite remarkable. I’m glad you found it engaging as well.

      The sled dogs–I just couldnt’ resist them! Oh English Springers are full of energy forever it seems. LOL. Maybe you could water your yard and have him pull a plastic sled over it it with your daughters on it? LOL. Why not?

      If you have a chance, I’d like to know what you think of Cold Specks.

      Good Cheer to you and yours, Johnny

        I listened to Cold Specks twice. She is exactly as the description says. “Doom Soul” is new to me, but it makes sense. Her voice is smooth, with an ‘urban-staccato’ vibe. I like them, but not especially the bass pedal theme throughout. 4 1/2 stars for them. 6 for the rest of the band.

        It’s funny you said I could water my yard. It’s been raining for 24 hours, and the yard is under a couple inches of water. The dog and the three littles have already done some sort of sledding, the kind that ends in being hosed off before coming in. They know this. : )

        I found a lot more of Cold Specks on the tubes and listened.The lyrics are often darker than I should indulge in too often, but the sound is very compelling. Her voice quality is consistently high and she has an interesting stage presence.

        Your yard action reminds of some soccer team body sledding action after a long rainy weekend of play. Hmm. Yep, i was sure glad I my daughter was trained to do her own laundry by that time. Oh, yeah. The ride home was quite something. LOL. I’d have appreciated hosing down her and the other car guests. Fun times. ) Mud, glorious mud everywhere.

      I really really like that you included your own art work. Have you started painting again? Or perhaps you never totally stopped. Just dormant for a while.

      A winter animation 🙂 and even Mari in the background .

      Good Yule tidings to you and yours.

      I like Simon’s poem with the tiny promised hint of Spring just as we enter the dark.


    • December 21, 2013 at 7:09 pm

      Hope you enjoyed meeting all the trees and the lush nature sounds in The Night Is My Sister, Simmon. Your poem’s images and references just seemed to fit so well when I read it. Thank you for sharing it here. 🙂

    • December 21, 2013 at 7:15 pm

      Good morning, Bear, ahh actually good afternoon. 🙂 I’ve not stopped creating visual art, Void just seemed perfect for this. I suspect Simon will probably share something even more solstice appropriate very soon.

      Good long night to you and yours.
