Υπάρχουν έργα τέχνης που και η αναφορά ακόμα σ’ αυτά με λέξεις τύπου “αριστούργημα”, αποτελεί ένα κλικ παραπάνω από την παραβίαση ανοιχτής πόρτας, αγγίζοντας το επίπεδο της ασέβειας.
Ένα από αυτά είναι ασφαλώς “Τα Φώτα Της Πόλης” του Charlie Chaplin, μια από τις ταινίες που έχει σημαδέψει εκατομμύρια ανθρώπων που είχαν την τύχη να τη δουν, ιδίως σε τρυφερή ηλικία.
Παίρνουμε μια ιδέα της μουσικής του έργου, σύνθεσης, ως συνήθως, του ιδίου του Chaplin. Ο οποίος γεννήθηκε σαν χτες, 16 Απριλίου του 1889 στο Walworth του Λονδίνου.

There are works of art that even referring to them with words such as “masterpiece”, is a click above the level of banality, touching the one of disrespect.
One of them is of course Charlie Chaplin’s “City Lights”, one of the films that have blown the minds of millions of people lucky enough to see them, especially at a tender age.
We get an idea of its soundtrack, a composition as usual of Chaplin himself, …whose b day was yesterday. He was born on 16 April, 1889, in Walworth, London.



Stay Safe!

As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !

Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
