A video of "Irisviel" is on youtube:
Here is it, in low-res.
The song is on Bandcamp, at https://eidon.bandcamp.com/album/ii
This is the video of "Per Tiziana"
It is made of eight pictures that I took in Brussels and Veltem, Belgium. The pictures are merged together with ImageMagick, piloted by txt2srt -- the minimalistic video processing tool at https://gitlab.com/Eidonko/txt2srt
As mentioned already, the track is part of my second album: https://eidon.bandcamp.com/album/ii
More info about this piece is available on my blog: https://noblogo.org/eidon/per-tiziana
I hope you'll enjoy both music and video!
And this is "Sweet Home Under White Clouds"
A picture on the wall
It says it all, it says it all
I had a dream long time ago, imaginary
Like water, I had no colour
Running free, eternal beauty
And heaven, it was on earth
The promised land of milk and honey
And I see it now
The pain it lasts and all is wasted
I still remember my delight at seeing this painting for the first time in the Tate Gallery in London, long, long ago.
"Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" by John Singer Sargent, 1885–6
I finished another #drawing.
This is the fourth portrait in a series of four based on a scene from the movie "Umimachi diary" ("Our little sister") by Hirokazu Kore-Eda. It is of the character Chika, the younger of the three Kouda sisters.
I used Conté pencils, Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle and Derwent Inktense on Arches 300 g/m² rough watercolour paper, 56 cm x 38 cm.

Wait, I'll #askmastodon !
Please have a listen to Eidon's beautiful short piece "Per Tiziana". We co-wrote a blog post about it:
What I find remarkable is that this very dance is still performed today, a thousand years later, in quite the same way.
Some years ago I saw an outdoor performance in Kyoto, at the eve of the Gion Matsuri.
I didn't know anything at all about that dance then, but luckily I took some pictures. Eventually, I made a drawing from those pictures, and I wrote a blog post about it.
In the chapter of the Tale of Genji entitled "The Law", Lady Murasaki, Genji's wife, is very ill and she fears that she has not long to live. She decides to dedicate a thousand copies of the Lotus Sutra, which she had made herself over the years.
The dedication event is very grand, and amongst other things there is a performance of the court dance "The Warrior King" (Ryou-Ou).
The Tale of Genji is a Japanese novel from the 10th century, written by Murasaki Shikibu, a lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court. It is set in the 9th century.
I've posted about it before, and
I recently wrote a post about its connection to a Japanese rock song, Ukifune.
But it is a long novel so there is much to say about it.
This is the full picture which I cropped to use as banner for the blog post about my arrangement of Eidon's piece "Per Tiziana" (https://quickandtastycooking.org.uk/articles/per-tiziana/).
I took it one summer evening in Kyoto. On Kawaramachi Doori (河原町通) there is a building called Kyoto Bal (京都BAL), which is full of posh shops. Next to it is a narrow alley called Kitakurumaya Doori (北車屋通). I found a window on the 2nd floor that overlooked the alley, and from there I took this picture.
A while ago, Eidon wrote a beautiful short piece called "Per Tiziana" and I made an alternative arrangement for it. We co-wrote a blog post about it:
It is interesting how science fiction is always of its time. The novel I'm reading is from 1999 and set a few centuries from now, in a world that has electricity but no electronics.
The following passage has a nice reference to the famous opening line of William Gibson's Neuromancer. The character is confronted something he has never seen before: an old computer with a CRT monitor.

It's pronounced ʁaʁyʁe.
And written RaRuRe, or R3 for short.
