Alan Parsons Proyect: Tales of mystery and imaginations


No estoy muy familiarizado con la musica de Alan Parsons, pero de vez en cuando me viene el recuerdo de mi amigo Pedro, que me indicaba que en este álbum, se podía escuchar la voz del siempre magnífico Orson Welles. HAy dos segmentos que el narra y que son una delicia para los oídos, porque aparte de ser un excelente director y actor, también fue locutor radial de las Crónicas Marcianas y muchas veces también trabajo en el radioteatro de La Sombra

aqui el disco y más abajo los fragmentos que lee mi amigo Orson.

” For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words
with even more distinctness than that with which I conceived it.
There is, however, a class of fancies of exquisite delicacy which are not thoughts,
and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language.
These fancies arise in the soul, alas how rarely. Only at epochs of most intense tranquillity,
when the bodily and mental health are in perfection.
And at those weird points of time, where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams.
And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see, or seem, is but a dream within a dream.”
Orson Welles – A dream within a dream-Tales of Mystery and Imagination- The Alan Parsons Project

“SHADOWS OF shadows passing. It is now 1831, and as always I am absorbed with a delicate thought.
It is how poetry has indefinite sensations, to which end music is inessential.
Since the comprehension of sweet sound is our most indefinite conception,
music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry. Music without the idea is simply music.
Without music or an intriguing idea, colour becomes pallor,
man becomes carcase, home becomes catacomb, and the dead are but for a moment motionless.”
