J'en Appelle by Iardacil J'en Appelle by Iardacil
Donne moi puissance et gloire
qu'elles viennent de la lumière ou du noir
donne moi force et pouvoir
et prends tout ce que tu peux avoir

j'en appelle
aux forces de l'univers
j'en appelle
au ventre de la terre
j'en appelle
aux astres et leurs mystères
je m'en remets a toi

Lysa Ansaldi - J'en Appelle from musical "Le Roi Soleil"
(you can listen it here: [link] it is not the best quality but best what I could find)

The lyrics in english: (Many thanks for *FrozenStarRo for the translation)

Give me power and glory
Either from light or darkness
Give me strength and power
And take whatever you want.

I call
The forces of the Universes
I call
The wind from Earth
I call
The stars and their misteries
I give myself to you.

For :iconscarlett1313: and :iconnight-fate: who are both two stunning manipulators, have been here to support me and had birthday not long ago....

I wanted to create something not so... usual for me. Trying something with different perspective, different atmosphere and feeling.. Ok, to be honest - I just wanted to make anything. i was so desperate that I did not cared about the things I should do and took last Thursday evening off from studying and started to work with this. Maybe because I wanted something spontaneous, chaotic... I went with the waves and the model pose was very inspiring. And without the brushes from *FrozenStarRo I could never have made this.

The idea started to be something chaotic, something powerful, power of nature - creating a reflection how personal feelings can affect things around me. And the song - I have been listening the music from that musical again lately and after seeing dvd with the peformance that song really impressed me because on cd it did not affect me so much. Maybe there was not the action around and I did not get the point so well. But when I saw the model, I knew I will use it and I know that song will help me. So this is she - calling all the forces of universe, living out her string emotions. Is it sadness? I am not sure... maybe rage.. maybe loneliness.. whatever the emotion is, it makes her strong, it takes hold over her and it is not sure who calls who... she calls nature to rule it around her and use it against her enemies or is it the nature and the wilderness around her what takes hold over her and plays with her the way they think it is best.

And as the lyrics say.. She is not protecting herself. She is maybe even maniacal so she is ready to give up everything in order to get the power and glory. Very devoted and obstinate. Obsessed, yes - that's the world. The power and randomness of the wild winds, leaves flowing... reflection of Universe in water what cannot reflect clearly because of the waves and storm.. and sky showing the infinite dimension on Universe.

And she calls... Calls the Universe... for power and glory.. giving up herself... And not caring about the consequences....
