Living The Experience

Michel Montecrossa about ‘Living The Experience’:
“‘Living The Experience’ is visualized as a 21st century Space-Age-Viking-Style-Saga. It is an Overground Musical, meaning the futuristic way of expressing the same meaning as did the mystic chants of the Heroic Age.
The title-sequence leads into a wide virgin snowfield. The heroes of the movie, the artist and his muse, playfully cross the untouched snow, symbolizing the ancient Utgard, the homeland of the Old Gods or Icegods, the archetypal powers of the Subconscious.
The artist and the muse are coming from the Soulworld or Asgard, moving towards the horizon, symbolizing the ancient Midgard, the Middle Region, where the human beings live.
The entire sequence is the image of the meaning of ‘Living The Experience’, namely to discover the timeless Threads of Destiny, the Norns, hidden in the depths of the Subconscious, and by the art of life to weave them into a living and everchanging image of time and space which grows into the house for the immortal Soul.
This is the destiny of the artist which he can only fulfill with the help of his muse, the Creatress of dreams and their magic.
The scene is the prevision of the essence and inner centre of the coming unfoldment of the story, an orphic story of Change of Consciousness of which the artist sings in his opening songs ‘Weatherman’, ‘Crumbling’ and ‘Wait A Minute’.

Now comes the main title scene which represents the entry gate to the human world. This scene is created as a Silent-Movie-Style-Action gradually reversing the audience-situation of watching into a new dimension of being watched, mocked at and photographed by photonic beings from the movie.
Thus the spectator enters the world of ‘Living The Experience’ together with the artist searching for his muse hidden somewhere in the mysterious net of World-Energies, the Walgrind, of ancient times.

The opening sequence leads to the ‘Prologue’ showing the muse wondering through a world of imaginations, symbols, illusory appearances and soulless memories in search of the artist who alone can give new life and meaning to these disconnected fragments of Creative Imagination.
As if coming from the other shore of reality she hears the yearning and the anguish of the artist in the song ‘Bygone Times’. She follows the sound of the haunting tune through the images of dreams, searching for the portals to reality, to find there the artist.

PART I & II:
The artist is looking for his muse in the many conflicting desires and illusions of the human beings to which they surrender in order to avoid living through their true identity, but he cannot find her in this Endzeit scenarios, the Ragnarök of the ancients, the Apocalypse.
More and more the bizarre francy of this possessive world tries to entangle the artist, but he sticks to his search and turns to nature and her strength to clear his mind.
He tells of his quest through the songs: ‘Better Do Not Remember’, ‘So Cold’, ‘Great Men’, ‘Next Turn’, ‘Out Of It’, ‘Please’.
Finally the maddening impact of no directions is exhausted when the artist understands that it is only love that can attract the muse and he suddenly is with her for the first time as a naked beauty and sings of this experience in the song ‘As I’m Rolling Past A Tiny House’.
He understands the experience to be the Primary Inspiration given by her to see all with the eyes of love and thereby to gain Wisdom, Wide Compassion and Generosity.
As a result he begins to see behind all fleeting frontal appearances the Eternal Presence of Consciousness, Love and Joy. He sees the images of life and the world like letters of a Poem of Revelation, represented in the movie through words from Vedic Hymns superimposed on the flow of scenes.
Throughout this change of perception and understanding the artist reflects the experience in his songs: ‘We Are Free’, ‘Glaubst Du Wirklich? (Do You Really Believe?)’, ‘Kommt Wieder Ihr Menschen (Come Again All Ye Men)’ and ‘Die Ahnung Der Zeiten (The Hunch Of Ages)’.

PART III:
Now comes the reversal of consciousness, the New World following the Ragnarök, where the inner creates the outer, where the apparent is seen from the essential, where the relative exists through the infinite, and it is now that the artist finds the muse.
A transformation takes place, a soul-fusion of artist with muse leading to the borderless embodiment of Love, expressed in ‘Living The Experience’ through a symphony of scenes and orchestral music and the profound flair of Insight, Harmony and Beauty: a Cosmic Building created by sound and light, the Walhallaof the ancients, the City of God of the future where Soul and Nature, Spirit and Matter are one.
The artist here does not sing with words but with pure sound of the union with his muse. And the secret of this finding is echoed in the chantlike message of the french mystic Mira Alfassa ‘Le Chemin Perfait – The Perfect Way’, which is also the title of the symphonic parts of ‘Living The Experience’.

PART IV & ENDTITLES:
Finally the circle of ‘Living The Experience’ is completed in the birth of a new child, the revelation of the ever renewed Mystery of Life, which is also the mystery of the muse of which the artist tells with his song ‘Natural Queen’.
This song leads into the Timeless Centre of the circle expressed through the endtitle sequence: the Sea of Eternity and its Music which is always perfect by being the Experience of Consciousness and Joy in Love and Beauty.”

TRANSFORMATION LIFE Michel Montecrossa’s Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2016 is released by Mira Sound Germany on Audio-CD, DVD and as Download.
TRANSFORMATION LIFE Michel Montecrossa’s Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2016 which was recorded live on Tuesday 26th July 2016 during the legendary Spirit of Woodstock Festival 2016 in Mirapuri is presenting the outstandingly revealing performances of 6 Michel Montecrossa songs and 6 Bob Dylan songs performed by Michel Montecrossa and his band The Chosen Few. TRANSFORMATION LIFE Michel Montecrossa’s Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2016 begins with Michel Montecrossa’s brand-new after-Brexit Topical Song ‘What The European Union Must Do Now – Was Die Europäische Union Jetzt Machen Muss’, followed by the timeless Bob Dylan folk Protest Song ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’. The Michel Montecrossa Transformation-Reality-Song ‘No Sugar’ leads to Bob Dylan’s bitter-sweet look-life-into-the face Love Song ‘To Ramona’. Michel Montecrossa then goes on with his soulful ‘Woman & Man, Man & Woman’. The tender Bob Dylan song ‘Tomorrow Is A Long Time’ connects to Michel Montecrossa’s Mirapuri Song ‘The Place Of The Free’. In the thoughtful ‘Yes Or No Blues’ Michel Montecrossa asks his girl “Tell me girl: Are you ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, or have you found the middle? Tell me girl: Are you unbound or do you move in circles? It’s your mind. It’s your heart. It’s the whisper. It’s the star.“ Then he extends the seeking and finding emotion into the performance of the Bob Dylan song ‘Where Teardrops Fall’. The finale are the autobiographical ‘Cyberrocker Ballad’ by Michel Montecrossa, the self reflecting Bob Dylan song ‘Most Of The Time’ and ‘Melancholy Mood’, one of the Frank Sinatra songs which Bob Dylan also performed.

Michel Montecrossa says about his Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2016:
“There is ordinary life and there is TRANSFORMATION LIFE. I live the TRANSFORMATION LIFE.”
Michel Montecrossa says about his Michel & Bob Dylan Fest series:
“The origin of the ‘Michel & Bob Dylan Fest Series’ was a man asking me if I could sing a Bob Dylan song in my next concert. I fulfilled his wish. After that I was asked ever more to include Bob Dylan songs in my concerts, as people said they like my way of singing Bob Dylan songs and they like to hear them together with my own songs as a positive and stimulating experience. Out of that the ‘Michel & Bob Dylan Fest Series’ evolved, beginning in 2001 and the ‘The Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2016’ is the 16th time that it happened. It includes my own new songs as well as Bob Dylan songs from 1961 till 2016.”

Michel Montecrossa says about his Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2015:
“My Michel & Bob Dylan Fest 2015 is made of songs that have learned not to ask questions while breaking into the wonder-garden of love’s romantic relations. The songs I sing say something good about human nature even if this nature can’t get off sexually unless she knows that she is betraying the object of her desire.
They are slender songs, they are fluid, their age is difficult to guess, they are stateless satellites, some are blond and some are soft-voiced, but all are fragments of a glass-walled gift shop longing for your smile.
Such songs themselves smile without showing their teeth, highlighting a girl’s small hard breasts while smelling like:
We Play The Shit We Like – We Play The Shit We Love • Beyond Here Lies Nothin’ • This Dream Of You • 4th Time Around • What You Wanna Do, Do It Now • I’m Lonesome Too • God Is A Girl • Silent Weekend • She’s The Great Morning, The Wonderful Day • I’m Your Teenage Prayer • Teen • 900 Miles From My Home • I‘m A Fool To Want You.”

‘My Heart Is Bleedin’ – Song by Michel Montecrossa for all people traumatized by earthquakes from Christchurch to Iran-Iraq border and everywhere

‘My Heart Is Bleedin’’ is a New-Topical-Song by Michel Montecrossa for all people traumatized by earthquakes from Christchurch to Iran-Iraq border and everywhere.

Song Lyrics
MY HEART IS BLEEDIN’
The street is all dusty, rubble’s everywhere. / The quake hit us for the end game. / I know no direction, no way to go. / My heart is a-bleedin’, I miss you so.
The house where we loved is all gone. / Somewhere in the ruins memories still moan. / What will be tomorrow? I don’t know. / I know no direction, no way any more. / My heart is a-bleedin’, I miss you so.
Pain is tearin’ my heart / but then I see you there. / You are not gone, you are somewhere. / I feel your love from there, / my soul you want to save. / I know no direction, except to the Lord. / My heart is a-bleedin’, I miss you so.

DIE SCHÖNEN BILDER, DIE IM HERZEN WOHNEN – THE BEAUTIFUL VISIONS LIVING IN THE HEART
Die schönen Bilder, die im Herzen wohnen, / die Bilder der Liebe himmelgeboren, / kommend von dem Ort ohne Kummer und Sorgen: / Ich zeig sie dir alle für dich und deinen Morgen.
The beautiful visions living in the heart, / the visions of love from heaven born, / coming from the place free of pain and sorrow: / I show them all to you for your tomorrow.
Die Bilder werden zu Gedanken, die leuchten, / Gedanken über uns und was wir werden können. / Wie Sterne sind wir dann hell in der Nacht, / strahlend für alle mit Liebesmacht.
Visions becoming thoughts of light / about us and what we can become. / Like stars are we then bright in the night: / shining for all with loving might.
Durch das Leben eilen wir wie Kinder / und werden für immer Kinder sein: / in der Liebe geeint, auf die Freude vertrauend, / aus der glücklichen Träne das Lachen zaubernd.
Like children we hurry through life / and forever like children will fly: / in love united, trusting in hope, / setting free the happy tear of laughing.
Die schönen Bilder, die im Herzen wohnen, / die Bilder der Liebe himmelgeboren, / kommend von dem Ort ohne Kummer und Sorgen: / Ich zeig sie dir alle für dich und deinen Morgen.
The beautiful visions living in the heart, / the visions of love from heaven born, / coming from the place free of pain and sorrow: / I show them all to you for your tomorrow.
