video of the week: Lisse Falk video for the track of Jürgen Paape – So Weit Wie Noch Nie (2001, Kompakt)

We hear a singing in space
We hunt for monotony
We turn hours into a year and moonlight out of our hair
We fly longer than ever

and by the way, don’t believe the crap that is written on about the original of which the beautiful hookline was sampled from: “I don’t speak German, but I’m pretty sure this song is about climbing every mountain and/or hearing me roar”. the original is not a creepy german song about roaring in the woods, but a little song by the israeli singer daliah lavi about space and time in love. What Paape did to the lyrics was to develop a more general message out of it, by stripping it down to the more abstract little poem translated above.
