Chameleonic Musician David Bowie Is Constellation Near Mars. David Bowie had several phases and styles in his creation as a musician: MOD (60s) - HIPPIE (60s) Space Oddity - GLAM (1970 - 1974) The Man Who Sold World (1970) Diamond Dogs (1974) - PLASTIC SOUL ( 1975 - 1976) Young Americans (1975) Station to station (1976) - BERLIN (1976 - 1979) Low, "Heroes" and Lodger - NEW ROMANTIC (1980 - 1988) Let's Dance (1983) and two more albums and back to rock with the band Tin Machine - ELECTRONIC (1995 - 2001) Outside (1995) Earthling (1997) - NEOCLÁSSICO (2002 - 2016) Hours (1999) - The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2016). His entire Creation as a Musician was guided from the beginning by his continuous quest as a man to attain Divine Enlightenment. And Bowie left all that, duly documented in his vast musical oeuvre. His Life Trajectory was ALL Inscribed in His Musical Work. David Bowie devoted himself to modern occultism. His own definition of himself: "I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform I'm not a prophet or a man of stone Just a mortal with the potential of a superman." - Quicksand. Everything documented from start to "end." With Great Style and Great Elegance. And for ALL that, he was honored with a lightning-shaped constellation. Bowie is now made up of seven stars: Sigma Librae, Spica, Alpha Virginis, Zeta Centauri, SAO 204 132, SAO 241 641 and Beta Sigma Octantis Trianguli Australis. Just as it was drawn on his face on the cover of the album Alladin Sane (1973), and the location chosen for the lightning-shaped constellation, it was very close to Mars, as in the song Life on Mars from the album Hunky Dory (1971). At the request of a radio station in Brussels, the observatory for space studies MIRA (Institute for Astronomical Research of Monterey), registered the constellation in honor of the musician. As I Said, Hamlet, by William Shakespeare: There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy. That's why David Bowie, will forever be in my Gallery, as an example of one of the Most Elegant Men. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 Click Article Archive, Click the month, scroll down, just read!)

Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music Refined Rock Art 'More Than This'. Bryan Ferry studied Arts at Newcastle University .He is very interested in pop art and contemporary art, some of his professors were Richard Hamilton and Mark Lancaster, a silkscreen artist for Andy Warhol. Alongside his college classes, he joined an amateur rhythm'n blues rock group called the 'Banshes'. Then, in his second group, 'The Gas Board', he met bassist Graham Simpson, with whom he formed Roxy Music. Comprised of saxophonist Andy MacKay, synthesizer Brian Eno, drummer Paul Thompson and guitarist Phil Manzanera. Roxy Music, offered an elegant and refined pop of which Bryan Ferry was one of the main composers. The group known for its combination of experimentalism and sophistication, the lyricism contained in the lyrics, virtuous instrumental themes and exuberant visual production, had a fascination for fashion, glamour, cinema, for art and the avant-garde, which separated the band from its contemporaries. They did Art Rock, which oscillated between avant-garde rock and elegant pop hooks. The group managed to create a real audience and initiated the Glam movement, significant influence to the punk movement, provided a model for New Wave groups, Duran Duran, direct influence. After their first two albums: "Roxy Music" and "For Your Pleasure", the group enjoyed significant popularity in the UK. Musical disagreements, (as each had different influences and liked different bands), between Bryan Ferry and Brian Eno. Makes Bryan Ferry, let other musicians handle the songwriting. In the US, Roxy Music's best-known hits are "Love is a Drug", "Avalon" and "More Than This". This allows him to embark on a solo career. Opportunity for Bryan Ferry to release several cover albums, songs by the Rolling Stones and the Beatles ("These Foolish Things", "Another Time Another Place"). While Roxy Music strenuously pursued his career, he continued to produce albums and, unlike many artists, it was ten years later that the performer and songwriter achieved his greatest success. After separation from the group. Released "Boys And Girls" and Bête Noire. Albums all with his compositions. His biggest hits "Don't Stop The Dance", "Kiss and Tell", which was featured in the movie 'Bright Lights, Big City'. with Brian Eno and collaborates on the album “Mamouna.” Worked on a project of 1930s covers and new compositions, Grammy-nominated album “As Time Goes By.” Joined the members of Roxy Music and toured in Europe and the United States in 2001. He released a cover album of Bob Dylan "Dylanesque" in 2007. He has an incomparable version of John Lennon's 'Jealous Guy', Ferry is seen as a master of the art. members of Roxy Music and released the album "Olympia", named after the exhibition center in west London, near where her studio is, this one with Kate Moss, on the cover of the album, her pose was inspired by the painting by Èdourard Manet, Olympia Released the album "Avonmore" in 2014. Released in 2018 the album "Bitter Sweet", made later Ferry being part of the series "Babylon Berlin" (a German period drama based on the books by Volker Kutcher, set in the 1920s), on the album he brings a touch of modernity, a new and exciting way to ragtime, blues and jazz on their famous Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music tracks, it's almost like we're hearing it for the first time. And he had already made a previous album "The Jazz Age", so director Baz Lurhmann, listening to the album, contacted Ferry to record some songs for the movie 'The Great Gatsby', capturing all the glam and sloppiness of the crazy 20s. Record covers, 'all with beautiful models, all had a relationship with Bryan Ferry', and many other models and socielites. Charming man and gentleman. Different from the covers of the time. Bryan Ferry on his debut album, "Roxy Music", posted a pinup photo of Model Kari-Ann Muller, taken by photographer Karl Stoecker. French model Amanda Lear was the muse of Ferry and 'Salvador Dali', 'a "panther" woman holding a panther getting out of a car', on the album "For Your Pleasure", the futuristic, neo-noir and cover album high fashion was photographed again by Stoecker. On the "Stranded" album, Ferry sought out Marilyn Coles, playmate of 'Playboy', photographed by Stoecker. On the album, "Country Life", models Constanze Karoline and Eveline Grunwald, girls he met at a bar, and photographer Eric Bomam invited them to pose on the cover and they agreed, posing in lingerie, references to a sophisticated British magazine, mixed with a true case of a model who got involved with a politician at the time. The cover was censored, in Holland and the United States, later reedited, with another cover for the respective countries. The cover of the "Siren" album is supermodel Jerry Hall crawling across the rocks of a Greek island,a golden crown under her long blond mane, recreating her like the mermaid, luring sailors to their death. Blue filter photography by Graham Hughes, Antony Price painted the body, long pointed nails blue, adorning the ankles with blue fins. Inspired by 'Dorma by Marvel Comics', a blue aristocrat from the underwater world of comics, 'Namor the Submarine'. Her presence in Capa led her to fame, because at the time, she was starting to model. It was during this shoot that Hall fell in love with Ferry. They were engaged in a few months, but Hall would soon leave him for Mick Jagger. On the album "Manifesto", he presented a soiree of male and female mannequins, and two living models hidden in the crowd. In the album "Flesh and Blood", three beautiful women, referenced with a powerful stature. The same goes for the cover of the "Avalon" album, which features Ferry's future wife, socialite model Lucy Halmore 'her her father Patrick Helmore' rich Lloyd's agent and insurer. In a pose descending from Arthurian legend, she faces the sunrise, horned helmet and falcon ready as if she were visiting Arthur's Avalon herself, across a lake on the West Coast of Ireland, on a Helmore family estate. It was also inspired by pre-Raphaelite painting from the Victorian period. Bryan Ferry said of the cover: "A Celtic warrior queen, looking at Avalon. She carries on her wrist a Merlin - the favorite bird of prey of favorite lords." A single release of the 'More Than This' album featured on the cover of the photo a detail of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's painfully melancholy 1872 painting 'Veronica Veronese' - thus maintaining the high romanticism of the Victorian masterpiece of the general artwork of "Avalon ". 'Avalon' is an uncannily beautiful album, an album that immerses the listener in their own enchanted world - about the desire to rest. She was an inspirational muse for several songs by Bryan Ferry, as well as Jerry Hall and Amanda Lear. Roxy Music is a post modern band. Bryan Ferry is one of Rock's greatest stylists. With a lot of class and elegance. He always made it clear that his vision of art and fashion would be part of the music package created by himself. He has incorporated a striking elegance and style to his group's concert and his solo shows, and has also brought that refinement to his album covers. In musical terms, Bryan Ferry's sound is characterized by a creative and personalized dive into the worlds of Glam rock, American Black Music in its strands (Soul, Jazz, Disco Music, Funk) and Pop, with a simply absurd good taste. Lyricism in Lyrics. David Bowie said he was one of his favorite songwriters and described him as one of the best songwriters in British music. All punctuated by his crooner voice, explored with a class and a category reserved for landing singers in the history of pop. Lyrics with Lyricism. It is the proof that pop music can be a sophisticated art form. Besides having been the best dressed Englishman of the late 20th century. All Fashion Magazines say the same. His name is synonymous with Cool. Able to provide us with climatic sounds, involving and in which the listener is taken on delicious journeys through the intricacies of love, passion and the high states of the soul. Dive into Mr Ferry's Work. Good taste for our eyes and ears. (To read + Articles 2020, 2021 click on Article Archives above, Click on the month and scroll down, just read)

Eyes Wide Shut Fractal Puzzle Strangely Beautiful Movie Tom Cruise Nicole Kidman Stanley Kubrick started out as a photographer for the New York magazine 'Look'. This explains a lot the perfect framing and stunning photography of his films and the visual and sensory experience we feel. Considered by many to be one of the greatest filmmakers. Reputably obsessive and meticulous, he has overseen, with all the attention to detail, every aspect of his films. A perfectionist, he commanded total control of his films, even the selection of books and newspapers that appeared in the background. His works have a visual and aural clarity, a demanding use of camera work, framing, lighting, positioning, special effects, music etc. Their unfolding narratives subvert traditional cinematic narrative conventions, leaving audiences perplexed. Kubrick's films are challenging because he tells a story in a way we're not used to. Master of narrative subtlety. Kubrick was a lifelong chess player. In Eyes Wide Shut, on each exploration trajectory he reveals unexpected details and layers of meaning, strategic orchestrations within a dream maze. Extraordinary film within its wide scope of themes and subjects. Sex is indeed the focus of the film, but the allusions to class, the world's ruling elite and powerful secret societies are significant. Also allusions that span literature, music, opera, mythology, religion, politics, history, etymology, cinema. Kubrick passed away 5 days after sending the final version to Warner Bros. This was the Master's last movie. The film Eyes Wide Shut was adapted from Traumnovelle, translated from the German means Dream Story, by Arthur Schnitzler, Austria, 1926, set in Vienna. Kubrick, upgraded to Contemporary. Tom Cruise plays Bill Hartford (Dr Bill, reference to a dollar bill), a wealthy New York doctor with an elegant high society clientele and a magnificent apartment on Central Park West, happily married to the beautiful Alice (reference to Alice in "Wonderland" a fairy tale about a privileged girl who is bored with her life and who "crosses the mirror" to end up in Wonderland"), (Nicole Kidman), former art gallery director, now a housewife, and takes care of her daughter. Troubled with each other by their flirtatious behavior, at a beautiful party hosted by an elite patient, Victor Ziegler (Sidney Pollack), and by drinking champagne and cannabis sativa, in home, has a furious fight in which Alice defiantly confesses her lustful thoughts to a naval officer in her past. During the party, Bill and Alice go their separate ways.Alice meets a man named Sandor Szavost, Hungarian, who asks her about Art and the Love of Ovid. Book series, written during ancient Roman times. The first book begins with an invocation to Venus - the planet associated with the goddess of eternal youth, goddess of beauty, fertility and physical love (sex). The star of Venus or Ishtar, appears several times in the film, and in the house and Victor Ziegler, where the party takes place. And Bill is talking to two models who flirt with him and who tell him they want to take him "where the rainbow ends"... Jealousy, Bill then goes on a nocturnal odyssey, in search of extramarital adventures, never accomplished , going through countless ordeals, even ending up in a secret society, uninvited, invading, where he witnesses scenes that shouldn't be profaned and public, in a luxurious house on Long Island. Since he was never initiated into that secret society, Bill shouldn't even have to to know it existed, let alone witness one of his "meetings." So how did he find out about it? Well, a little bird told him. Nick Nightingale At one point during his strange night out, Bill meets his old friend Nick Nightingale , who studied medicine with him, but did not graduate, at a jazz cafe. The professional pianist reveals to Bill that he is sometimes hired by mysterious people to play, blindfolded, at mysterious parties filled with women b onites. This information stirs and intrigues Bill because, since his conversation with his wife, he seems to be looking for some kind of... experience. Nick ends up making a big mistake and agrees to provide Bill with all the information he needs to access the site. A nightingale is the type of bird known to sing at night, just as Nick Nightingale “sings” secret information at the beginning of Bill's odyssey. The password to enter the ritual is “Fidelio”, which means “fidelity”, the main theme of the film. More importantly, as Nightingale points out, "Fidelio" is the name of an opera written by Beethoven... After getting the details of Nightingale, Bill rents a costume at a store called "Rainbow"... and then heads to Somerton, the property where the party is being held. The location selected to film the exterior scenes is Mentmore Towers, built in the 19th century as a country home for a member of the world's most prominent and powerful elite family: the Rothschilds. The internal scenes of the party were filmed at Elveden Hall, a private home in the UK designed to look like an Indian palace. When the "festivities" begin, a Tamil song called "Migration" plays in the background, adding to the South Asian atmosphere (the original version of the song contained an actual recitation of scriptures from the Bhagavad Gita, but the chant was removed in the final version of the film). This peculiar Indian atmosphere, combined with the scenes witnessed by Bill as he walks through the house, points to the most important part... Bill's journey as a whole has its meaning... The last lines of the film conclude and define the journey of Bill. After running around New York and getting turned on by all sorts of situations, Bill comes face to face with his wife and talks about how he is "awake" now. With its “life force” fully charged. Alice ends the film by completing a sentence... The meticulous symbolism and imagery of all of Stanley Kubrick's Works often communicate another dimension of meaning - one that transcends. To honor Stanley Kubrick's contribution to science fiction cinema, the highest mountain range on Pluto's moon, Charon, was named "Kubrick Mons" in April 2018. It has a Mythological Meaning. But the etymology of 'Charon' comes from the Greek, meaning 'sharp gaze' and 'fierce', 'lightning', or 'febrile eyes'. Eyes Wide Shut is a fractal puzzle of infinite dimensions. Kubrick introduces us to mythical theater. Watch the last work, performed by Master Stanley Kubrick. (To Read Articles 2020 and 2021+, Click Article Archive, Click Month, Scroll Down and Just Read)

Inspiring Movie Review, To Catch a Thief Grace Kelly Cary Grant Alfred Hitchcock Humor Beauty Elegance Fashion and Stunning Landscapes Cary Grant .... John Robie (The Cat) Grace Kelly .... Frances Stevens Film based on the novel by David Dodge. Cary Grant is John Robie, a retired jewel thief who lives quietly on the Cotê d`Azur. And he is under suspicion of having committed several jewel thefts in Nice and Cannes. And he can only prove his innocence by catching the real culprit. But in the beautiful Cotê d`Azur he meets the stunning heiress Frances Stevens who is Grace Kelly, rich, bored, spoiled and enthusiastic and also curious about the reputation of John Robie ("The Cat"), Cary Grant. With gorgeous scenery. One of the most Elegant films, Hitchcock, knew what he was doing. Cary Grant and Gracy Kelly were together, actress and actor, some of the most elegant that ever passed through the cinema. They had natural Elegance. And beautiful! Gracy Kelly's costume was all designed by Edith Head, famous costume designer of the whole movie industry. And she had Gracy Kelly as her muse. Cary Grant, chose his own closet for the movie, because he was very elegant in real life, off screen. For the film Cary Grant found the red polka-dot scarf and the striped sweater in a local store. The scarf worn casually, tied around the neck in the style of a tie. This style was copied by many. The "look", entirely Casual, by Cary Grant. On his feet a CG handmade moccasin for Maxwell's, the pants of a suit. Very elegant. Look at Grace Kelly's "look" on the beach, with cat eye sunglasses, a light yellow swimsuit, and a scarf tied around her head in the same shade. Elegance on the beach. Grace Kelly's evening look is beautiful! She has class and a natural sense of Elegance, she seems to float, when she walks. Cary Grant in a tuxedo, lots of Elegance, natural. Innate Sense. The scene where Grace Kelly meets Cary Grant, in the lobby of the Hotel, she wears a black swimsuit, with a skirt-like beach outlet, a wide-brimmed hat (Flying Num), and a black turban. (One of Grace's signature pieces, made legendary by the future princess). In the picnic scene with the wonderful view of Monte Carlo, Grace Kelly wears a coral dress with white prints on the top (in perfect combination with the gloves) and with a pleated skirt and a coral scarf tied around her neck. Cary Grant with his usual Elegance. The scenes were improvised by the two, who were very much at ease with each other, (Hitchcock, approved). In the fireworks scene, both are in absolute classic elegance. Grace Kelly, is in a pearly white chiffon dress, with a magnificent diamond necklace. Cary Grant in a formal "look", which with all its Elegance, made it look, relaxed and fun. The clothes were a natural extension of himself (THIS IS THE BEST DEFINITION, FOR ELEGANCE). In the final scenes. We have a costume ball, held in a mansion on the Cote d'Azur.All the extras wore costumes in the style of Marie Antoinette's court (which I will talk about in another, article, about Sofia Coppola's film, made about Marie Antoinette). It was the most expensive scene that the stylist Edith Head had ever done. Grace Kelly, is dressed as "a fairy princess (Hitchcock's order). The ball gown, worn by her, with a huge gold mesh skirt, adorned with fabric birds and a gold mask, and on her head a gold wig (remember, all in the Marie Antoinette style). In an action scene, in which Cary Grant, walks on the roof ("The Cat'"), to prove his innocence. He wears black from head to toe, including a polo sweater. As the scene ends, he finishes the "look," with an elegant black coat, just in time for the final scene, on the terrace of his house in the hills, when he agrees to marry Frances (Grace Kelly). Cary Grant said, "I always went to work whistling." Evidently reflected, we saw all his Natural Elegance on the screen. Anyway, this film, shows, Natural Elegance in Cary Grant and Natural and Classical Elegance in Grace Kelly, mixed with Hitchcock's irresistible touch of English humor. And the stunning little City-State Monaco. You will be enchanted by such beauty in everything and everyone throughout the Film!
