It is my pleasure to invite to this experiment. Initially, I had edited the Leonard Cohen’s, clip “Suzanne”, with, for my taste … an extraordinary result. But unfortunately, the owners of the reproduction rights (a multinational), did not think the same, and they, with justice … banned it from You Tube. I understood that it was a risk that I had taken, and that they had the right to do it. But… my navieté had been more passionate than prudent.
Well… I had worked really hard for the project that had been haunting my creativity during months… And as the clip had been there all ready for it.. I tried to perform the song myself. Well must admit that that as all my neurons, and guts and heart was so taken by Leonard’s soul and magic, that, though, I had edited the sound.. it did not satisfied me and did not render the artistic level that the song needed.
So what to do? Well.. my purpose was firm… my heart hot.. and my husband as always ready for helping. And then.. humbly decided to recite the lyrics… and lent it a wonderful watery bachian background. So… now… if you remember the music you can look for it in your mind.. or just go to You Tube… where, may be you can find some performing.. of any kind.. of this great man. (I have not looked for it) and if you are contended with the extraordinary poem with such profund symbolism and touching energy, you may hear my voice… while contemplating the Suzanne’s adventures… that since I can remember have moved my whole being till trembling and tears.
This is my contribution to this great man and artist, which voice is like a cave where one can feel secure, loved and sensually soul-attracted.
