Jacqueline - soundcloud

Postby silentwings on Mon Sep 25, 2017 3:54 am

David has posted a third track onto SoundCloud - the demo of Jacqueline from 2009, included on the cover cd of Believer magazine. Good to have the story of the lyrics - really adds to the depth of the piece for me...

'A demo track contributed to The Believer magazine July 2009. It imagines the possible interior life of Jacqueline (Roque) Picasso, particularly during her last 12-13 years. A life lived bereft of the sun that had once dominated/ illuminated her existence. Often denigrated as being controlling etc. I'd found great sorrow in her eyes and this made her relatable to me regardless of the ‘facts'. She's also the subject of some of Picasso's finest portraits. The piece rose out of empathy with what led to her end, suicide by gunshot.'
