Tristis Carmina :: harbor mother

Initialement Cagey House, Kid Feardive, Howdy Persephone ou Figment Bean et aujourd'hui Tristis Carmina, Dave Keifer est plus qu'assurément, un artiste attachant ...

Bravo ! Voici précisément une intro, un cliché, dont l'auteur de ces lignes, devrait sincèrement se méfier. Dave Keifer est, nous l'espérons, probablement une personne "attachante", mais surtout un artiste particulièrement addictif pour quiconque a, un jour ou l'autre, croisé l'une de ses multiples investigations.
Désireux de vérifier ce potentiel ? Nous ne saurions, que trop, vous recommander quelques-unes des merveilleuses pépites jalonnant le parcours du garçon.

Maintenant, éloignons-nous de ce fatras promo-émotionnel. Essayons, un instant, de ne pas être intrigués par cette "harbor mother". Quelques notes, une guitare hésitante, particules suggestives, les contours d'une chimère bienfaisante, une illusion furtive, utopie naissante, melancolia splenica.
"harbor mother" est une invitation à la paresse, un renoncement à l'éveil attentif, et si so flooby en est, peut-être la clé de voute, nous éviterons de nous poser la question, de peur de devoir rompre cette magnifique indolence.
Indolence, oui le mot a été prononcé, avant qu'il ne s'échappe sans effort ni possible impédance, un satori gracile. Ces "tristis carmina" sont à la hauteur de leur auteur, c'est à dire, bien ... au delà.

Initially Cagey House, kid feardive, Howdy Persephone or Figment Bean and today Tristis Carmina, Dave Keifer is more than assuredly, an endearing artist ...

Well done ! Here is precisely an intro, a cliché, which the author of these lines should sincerely be wary of. Dave Keifer is, we hope, probably an "endearing" person, but above all an artist particularly addicting for anyone who, one day or another, crossed one of his multiple investigations.
Eager to verify this potential? We cannot recommend enough of some of the marvelous nuggets along the boy's path.

Now let's get away from this promo-emotional jumble. Let's try, for a moment, not to be intrigued by this "harbor mother". Some notes, a hesitant guitar, suggestive particles, the contours of a beneficial chimera, a furtive illusion, nascent utopia, melancolia splenica.
"harbor mother" is an invitation to laziness, a renouncement of attentive awakening, and if so flooby is, perhaps the keystone, we will avoid asking ourselves the question, fear of having to break this magnificent indolence.
Indolence, yes the word was pronounced, before it escaped without effort or possible impediment, a satori gracile. These "tristis carmina" are up to their author, that is to say, well ... beyond.

Cagey House :: calico pastry sunshine

invited by ZhangJW, musician & coordinator of Bypass netlabel, 
here is the presentation text for "Calico Pastry Sunshine" by The Cagey House.

"Bienvenue dans le shaker des illusions perdues ! Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, and above all, be careful, for the paint is not yet dry! Scattered about,  are the remnants of formica chips (hell ! formicat, comment vais-je traduire ceci? Laminate?)  Float now, through  a powerfully atmospheric memory trip and experience complete levitation, as everywhere the particles are excessively resistant to your gracious appreciation.  Relax and  let yourself go completely. Nothing is spared, nothing is restricted.  Dave Keifer aka Cagey House may very well be a genius, an iconoclast provoking a demonic revolution ...

By now, you, of course can understand the near impossibility  of portraying such a character (though this was exactly what ZhangJW asked me) – Cagey House does not respect conventions!

Ready to dissect ?

"Lower the bubble viewer" which brilliantly opens the release, will not leave you indifferent.  If it does, you need to quickly consult a supersonic astrophysicist (I have addresses).  Where are we?  Too late!   Surrounded!  Submit to delicious words of love, a french whisper, bouncy riffs,  flexible sarabande, and many more temptations to come, but ...

Scenery change.

Speed dating in a flash of high velocity, you're transported to a delightful towering garden, flowering with whiskers.  Symbiotically echoing and reflecting, you merge into a piercing laser beam's voluptuous flash with the softness and agility of a Barbarella, while the laconic, fuzzy guitar riff brewed into the cut-up advances.

Tu et la Flea de la Plage”  will embrace you gently and will respond to you day and night, enveloping you in a strange, dreamy ballet...a very curious to and fro. If Cagey also shows a bit of a "romantic streak"
let's not become  entangled in endless, sterile discussions ..... the rhythm is there!  The rhythm is there and does not wait just until the delicate point of rupture--  you will slalom in the mode of "ritournelle".

But where are we? So ready to exit and yet so completely lost.

Could Cagey House  have surreptitiously abandoned us ?   Left us alone, destitute ...  poor harmonic orphans.  But no!  Now the ringmaster of this magnificent circus has given us his finest gift - "Ethel of the Rocks".  So much like a perfume caressing our eternal desires and illusions ..... our eternally sweet illusions .... lost."

Cagey House :: b for breakfast

la légèreté d'être, d'entendre et probablement de voir aussi, à chaque nouvelle réalisation de Cagey House, Dave Keifer nous enchante, nous ravit et nous permet, encore et toujours, d'espèrer que le monde pourrait être ainsi fait, de brics et de brocs, de timballes enchantées, de fanfares chamarrées, de libertinages écervelés, d'accords de guitares de dentelles, de divas supersoniques et d'un sourire de Kurt Schwitters, d'un collage libellule de Kinle Wo, de tambours battants, du voisinage d'un lièvre de mars, d'enfants toujours farceurs, d'adultes faisant d'amusantes grimaces à l'ordre et la raison, et avant de s'enfuir, l'instant suivant, vers une nouvelle et malicieuse espièglerie. un instant fugace, un instant de ... bonheur.

Cagey House :: 1902



do you like the Cagey House of Dave Keifer ? i, personnally have some serious difficulties to stay objective, restraint some reserve, and the keyboard of that personal computer, in front of me, finally does not like me to jump with both feet above - come on and go, jump on the collage and surreal expressionism of that Baltimorian's crazy cage.
