all life ends, washed ashore

like liquid grains of sand that slowly dry in the sun

"somewhere less sessions"

Murió mi eternidad y estoy velándola

It is not so much the actual passing of Lou Reed but what it represents to me knowing that The Velvet Underground are finally gone.

To come to terms with the idea that part of what made my youth a marvelous place to be, is gone. Not that any recent music by Lou Reed, or John Cale, would ever make me feel as I did when I listened countless time to The Velvet Underground and Nico.

To become aware that my youth is gone is both tragic and inevitable.

That’s why this verse by César Vallejo is so true and somewhat sad.

Murió mi eternidad y estoy velándola. Loose translation - My eternity is dead and I am mourning it.

Velvet Underground and Nico is a very very special album, and since yesterday I finally accept that I will never relive it again.

Washed Away Memories reviewed at Music won’t save you

"…Un viaggio tra memorie e immagini cristallizzate, che della distanza nel tempo o nello spazio reca con sé un senso non di distacco bensì di avviluppante immanenza emozionale…”

"everybody has memories, fragments imprinted that recur occasionally like a burst of nostalgia or like passionate fire explosions, and they might appear to the world as a smile or an irrational fear. but the truth is most of this cannot be pinpointed to an exact scene, an exact date. and that is I think irrelevant, as what counts is not the specificities of what passed but its manifestations in the present.

some of these moments are captured in a snapshot, a film, or a replicated recipe. but what underlie them is the sense of the inexplicable background, a detail, a set of fragments under the surface, lost in the vividness of colors, or the sweetness of spices.

the favorite toy or the grandmother’s special dessert, an open mouth with a fly inside or the kiss of ones lips."

Review of Washed Away Memories at A Closer Listen

A beautiful text about the multiple shades of memory and remembrance triggered by my album Washed Away Memories

Truly interesting. Enjoy the reading. 

http://acloserlisten.com/2013/04/29/leonardo-rosado-washed-away-memories/

"…In the end, this is definitely not a straightforward album built around the familiar theme of memory; the way it is built, the way its sounds interact betray an enormous sensibility from which all disturbances spring, not methodically but poetically, as ephemeral as any act of remembrance…”
