Elsie Dee Project 1, 2 and 3

  1. Along the Line

    In a de-humanized world where everyone is a mere number doomed to memorize other numbers, each one still has a private space where music and dreams still make life worthwhile.
  2. Ven Ven Ven

    The joy of meeting someone you haven't seen for a long time and dance instead of talking! It makes you forget your worries and brings great happiness.
  3. Weltraumschrott

    Among all the junk floating in space, one might encounter some of the 99 red balloons launched by the famous German song.
  4. Er sagte alle Menschen

    In Ode to Joy, we sing «ALL men will become brothers». Our modern world still hasn't done much to make this prophecy come true.
  5. The Proposal

    Is getting married and promising eternal love to one another still possible nowadays?
  6. J'ai vu la Lune

    Watching the moon is in itself poetic. Words come along like a soothing tide.
  7. The Circle of Friends

    Yet another song about the necessary brotherhood of the human race. We have to cherish our differences instead of using them as fences.
  8. Carpe diem

    The teachings of Epicurus still live on. We have to live each day as if it was the last one.
  9. At this Table

    In any negotiation, when an agreement is reached, it is time to put everything back on the table.
  10. La lluvia me pega

    Experiencing tropical rain is something very special. It is a kind of violent tenderness, a mesmerizing enchantment.
  11. Waskesiu Venus (Love will come)
    Info (Show/Hide)
  12. Vie d'Ange

    Song 52 - On every album we try and have at least one Reggae song in the lineup. There is something about the Reggae beet that seems to span across borders, distance and time. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  13. Mon Étoile

    Song 53 - Boyd was playing around with a new digital version of a classic vintage synthesizer when he came up with the foundation for the deep rumbling base sound featured in this song. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.

  15. Le Feu dans la Cabane

    Song 55 - We were chatting one day with our goof friend Neil when he suggested we try a song using the old standard Country rhythm know as a ?Train?. The beat gets its name from the sound of a train rolling down the tracks. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  16. Sourde Oreille

    Song 56 - An impossible song. It all began with a galloping piano full of irregularities rhythmic and harmonic and gradually, with the passage of the chorus, at once joyful and desperate, that has something of the fifties, that came to be grafted thematic to roles and sex toys. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  17. Lonesome Rider

    Song 57 - Three weeks after we recorded this song, NASA had to move the International Space Station to a higher orbit because it was on a collision course with a piece of a broken satellite. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  18. Hombres no lloran

    Song 58 - Men cry. This is not something that should be kept secret. And it seems that it has the most effect on their lachrymal glands. Gentlemen, they are workaholics or mastodons. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  19. Blew into Town

    Song 59 - At the end of the summer of 2012, we went to Quebec. It was the first visit for Boyd in the capital of Quebec. Endless walks through the streets, a cruise on the St. Lawrence River, Île d'Orléans, Montmorency Falls, delicious meals, the friendly passionate people who we met there. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.
  20. Parajita Peregrina

    Song 60 - Pierre came up with this wonderful lyric about a small bird lost, unable to see the sky, the sun or the moon and how the little bird found its way to happiness. Lyrics and music by the Elsie Dee Project.

  23. Amotomibomba

    Song 43 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Osito Rey Osito Rey gave us this poem, first published under the title Bimbo mi cielo and signed by his early pseudonym Izi Laidel. And we turned it into our most happy sounding song. It is about his love for a motorcycle queen from Puntarenas. By the sound of it, they were riding together across the Milky Way.

  32. Dans La Cour...

    Song 32 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Jean Genet. Genet was always fond of ceremonies and rituals and being outlawed was not a burden for him, it was an ideal greatly sought after
  33. Ears in the Turrets

    Song 33 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Dylan Thomas. This Welsh poet?s poetic power is almost incomparable. His style is unique, blending traditional rhythms and intensely personal imagery in riddle-like knots of wisdom and rage, love and despair, faith and the humbling waves of the ever beating heart of the sea.
  34. Enredadera

  35. Die Sonne sinkt

    Song 35 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Friedrich Nietzsche. When he was 25, he was best friend with the 50 years old Richard Wagner. They were both writers as well as composers. The music and the philosophy of the twentieth century would not have been the same without them. But even in the best friendship, there is no room for two giants.
  36. Freeze

    Song 36 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Jack T. Hammer. His first attempts at poetry were rap revival of old English masters. He almost made the Guinness book of records with his non-stop rendition of Percy Bysshe Shelley?s The Revolt of Islam.
  37. Ni Vu Ni Connu

    Song 37 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Arthur Michault. Gabriel Pariseau was born at L'Île Ronde in 1949. His precocious neo-romantic poetry is still very much impregnated with post-modern irony. Something like the tragical fragrance of blue flowers .
  38. Corre caballo

    Song 38 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Renaldo Chastefleur. Born in Paris in 1944, Renaldo Chastefleur, the son of a Chilean musician and a famous Frensh contralto who toured the world non-stop, he spent most of his childhood on the road, but never got to see his father?s native Tarapacá, the Parinacota volcano?s reflection in the clear water of lake Chungará.
  39. Being beauteous

    Song 39 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Arthur Rimbaud. Of all the so called "damned poets" of the late nineteenth century, Arthur Rimbaud is without a doubt the best known. And this has less to do with the literary superiority of his work than with life story.
  40. Caminando

    Song 40 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Nicolás Guillén. This famous Cuban poet has witnessed his people?s sufferings as well as its achievements. But you don?t have to be Cuban and you don?t have to know all the historical details of the events he took part in to appreciate the bitter caress of his poetry.

  43. Invitación al aire

    Song 23 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Rafael Alberti. Rafael Alberti, born in Cadiz in 1902, belongs to the generation of 1927 and is identified with the Spanish Renaissance literature and played an important role in their access to modernity.
  44. La Ralentie

    Song 24 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Henri Michaux. Elsie Dee here uses only the beginning of one of the most famous and most beautiful poems of this misfit of French speaking literature. Familiar with the morbidity and the suffocating lack of differentiation, Henri Michaux sometimes bursts into frenzies of abundant details and minute descriptions.

  48. L'Étranger

    Song 28 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Baudelaire. Elsie Dee insisted that this About "album" had to include a poem by Baudelaire, the master of French symbolism, for he is, among all the dead poets we pray on, one of the most faithful visitors. And she also wanted to bring out the "happy" side of a poet mostly known for his frequent displays of «spleen» and morbidity.
  49. The Calendar

    Song 29 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Taliesin. The Song of Taliesin is to Welsh culture what the Kalevala is the Finnish culture or what Deuteronomy is to the Judeo-Christian culture: an alphabet which is also a calendar where each line is a step (moon) whose name is that of a tree. Elsie has added a few repetitions so to give this poem an air of sacred jingle.

  51. L'Explosion

    Song 11 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Gabriel Pariseau. Gabriel Pariseau was born at L'Île Ronde in 1949.

  57. Ballade des menus propos

    Song 17 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by François Villon. Eventhough his life was not that of a role model (he robbed rich people and even killed a priest in a fight), his influence on other poets was huge and still lives on. He is the undeniable master of the ballad.
  58. If Seventy Were Young

    Song 18 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Edward Elstin Cummings. E. E. Cummings was born in Cambridge (Massachusetts) in 1894. His travels to France in the early XXth century nurrished his appetite for modernism. Taking a defenite step away from symbolism, he created an innovative, playfull and nontheless strictly formal poetry.
  59. Hay un verde laurel

    Song 19 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Rubén Darío.
  60. Le Jeu

    Song 20 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Sylvain Garneau. Sylvain Garneau (1930-1953)was born in Montreal, this poet mixes modernism and romantic tradition. His verses recall Rimbaud and Nelligan. He comitted suicide at the age of 23.

  62. Proserpine

    Song 2 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Charles Algernon Swinburne. Charles Algernon Swinburne was born in London ( England) in 1837.

Taken from his Hymn to Proserpine
  63. Presque peur

    Song 3 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Paul Verlaine. Paul Verlaine was born in Metz ( France) in 1844. Master of the musical verse and of the speech-like tone, his work is as profound as it appears shallow to "seriously" realist critics.
  64. Paupiere

    Song 4 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Gabriel Pariseau. Gabriel Pariseau was born at L'Île Ronde in 1949. His precocious neo-romantic poetry is still very much impregnated with post-modern irony. Something like the tragical fragrance of blue flowers .
  65. Iron gun

A celebrated intellectual, he is especially known for Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. He left many poems including the masterpiece The Hunting of the Snark.
  66. Ete chagrin

    Song 6 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Arthur Michault. Arthur Michault was born in L'Ile Noire in 1922. Post-dada experimental poet, we tend to see nowadays in his voluntarily opacified "poèmes-machines" a prefiguratioin of punk.
  67. Pour George

    Song 7 - Music by the Elsie Dee Project. Lyrics by Gabriel Pariseau. Gabriel Pariseau was born at L'Île Ronde in 1949. His precocious neo-romantic poetry is still very much impregnated with post-modern irony. Something like the tragical fragrance of blue flowers .

Elsie Dee Project the Complete Collection
http://www.elsiedeeproject.com/Default.aspx
The Elsie Dee Project is all about having fun and enjoying life. Well maybe there's a bit more to it than that... we like to believe in the freedom of music while we go about exploring new avenues of musical expression. The Elsie Dee Project is dedicated not only to the diffusion of poetry, but also to the exploration of the musical formulas which one could call the 'lowest common denominator'.
