WALKING SPIRITS 2008

In 2008 Nathalie Bruys was invited to contribute drawings and soundpieces to the project 'Wandelgeesten' (Walkingspirits)* initiated by the Wolfheze foundation. The project was realized in assignment of the National Parc De Hoge Veluwe, the Kroller-Muller Museum and CBKGelderland. Aim of the project is to stimulate activities in the field of art, nature, science and recreation on a regional as well as a national level. In former years soundartists like Cilia Erens, Spinvis and Armeno Alberts participated in similar projects. Nathalie Bruys' contribution 'License for Silence' is a reflection on the nature of the parc, the human aspects and some artworks from the collection of the Kroller-Muller Museum.

The gallery of Soundmuseum exhibits a selection of 6 drawings in combination with 6 soundpieces from this project.

LYRICS

Hide & Seek

You are surrounded by a lot of animals playing hide & seek
But if you play some nice music they come out
To see what's going on
And they discover a new sun standing between the trees

Hear the cracking of the woods
Makes you feel like Robin Hood
Sitting on horses
Sitting on a bench
Morphing in, in a landscape romance

Hear the cracking of the sun
Makes you feel like number one
Standing in fields with trees and grass
A brand new nature express

A brand new nature express

You are surrounded by a lot of animals playing hide & seek
But if you play some nice music they come out
To see what's going on
And they discover a brand new sun standing between the trees

Hear the cracking of the woods
Makes you feel like Robin Hood
Sitting on horses
Sitting on a bench
Morphfing in, in a landscape romance

Hear the cracking of the sun
Makes you feel like number one
Standing in fields with trees and grass
A brand new nature express

Hear the crackin of the woods
Hear the crackin of the sun
Hear the crackin of the woods
Hear the crackin of the sun

Makes you feel like number one


Let me carry you

as you walk through the park
as you walk through the park
can you feel the majesty
can you feel it ?

while walkin through
lots of things appear around you
takin time, takin a step
in your head, don't mind the gap now

it's all around you
it's all right inside you
it's all up to you
if you want to stay and do
something that's good for you
good for you

as you walk through the park
as you walk through the park
can you feel the majesty
can you feel it ?
can you believe it ?

could it be that positivity emerges
when negativity decides to withdraw
and change it's name
would you like to change yours
and take it a step further

as you walk through the park
as you walk through the park
can you feel the majesty
can you feel it ?

while walkin trough
lots of strange things appear around you
takin time, takin a step
in your head, don't mind the gap now

it's all around you
it's all right inside you
it's all up to you
if you want to stay and do
something that is good for you
is good for you

as you walk
and talk
as you walk
and talk
as you walk
and talk
it's all majestic isn't it?
it's all covered up
with green deeds
in this place they have a license for silence

can you feel it ?
can you believe it ?

it's all majestic isn't it?
it's all covered up
with green deeds
in this place they have a license for silence

Digital Shepherd

You keep the wolves out
You supervise me
You bring the silence
You take responsibility

You lead me in good directions
I know I can trust you
You watch over over me
You bring me shelter
in big mountain areas

my digital
my digital
my digital shepherd

you make the mountains
seem less high
you make the mountains
seem less high


What is it that we want ?

Have you seen the apples on the trees
Have you seen the movement of the bees
Have you seen the sun warmin up the leaves
Have you seen the crickets mingle with the breeze

I keep on wonderin why we fall so far from the tree
Why can't we be as sweet as a bee
I keep on wonderin why we don't shine like the sun
Why can't we mingle like crickets and live as one

Live as one

What is it that we want ?
What is it that we need ?
What is it that we want ?
What else do we need ?

It's it so that we are already livin in A Paradise

But some of us just don't get it
Some of us just forget it
Some of us just don't let it
Some of us are really stupid

Have you seen the breeze mingle with the trees
Have you seen the movement of the leaves
Have you seen the sun warmin up the bees
Have you seen the crickets mingle real at ease

I keep on wonderin why we fall so far from the tree
Why can't we be as sweet as a bee
I keep on wonderin why we don't shine like the sun
Why can't we mingle like crickets and live as one

Why can't we shine like the sun

What is it that we want?
What is it that we need ?
What is it that we want?
What else do we need ?

live as one

And be as sweet as a bee.
And be as sweet as a bee.
