OSTENTATIOUS MISANTHROPY

Artist: Simeon Lumgair (featuring Queen of Opera)

Single title: Ostentatious Misanthropy

Genre: Contemporary Classical / Soundtrack / Alternative

Release date: August 19th  2022

 

Ostentatious Misanthropy is the fourth single from the album Paperback Fables Opus from composer Simeon Lumgair.  

This is the story of a troubled writer who dwells on the relationship of two estranged lovers; they are oblivious to his presence and influence. The piece unfolds a tragic fable of intimacy and isolation, two lovers dependent on one another but unable to relate.

 

Abandonné dans le désert, tu es mon déluge

Ma teinte chatoyante qui ne s'estompe pas, 

le monde est né autour de toi.

Tu as été projeté hors de l'espace

Ton courage sans méfiance me rend courageux.

Nos désirs sont hors de notre portée, nous dimmed noyés dans l'isolement.

CAEDMON'S HYMN

Artist: Simeon Lumgair (featuring Queen of Opera)

Single title: Caedmon's Hymn

Genre: Contemporary Classical / Soundtrack / Alternative

Release date: August 5th  2022

 

Caedmon's Hymn is the third single from the album Paperback Fables Opus from composer Simeon Lumgair.  Caedmon's Hymn is believed to be the first English poem, written around 680 AD in old English. An antediluvian myth surrounds this poem that common cow-herder Caedmon lacked the ability to sing and had no rhetorical training until an angel gave him a song which now has been preserved through time. 

This metamorphosis of the enigmatic hymn brings to life something which was sung on the hills of ancient history—the theophanic paradox of the divine and the earthy coexisting in harmony.

Haunted Fury new single cover.jpg

HAUNTED FURY

Artist: Simeon Lumgair (featuring Queen of Opera)

Single title: Haunted Fury

Genre: Contemporary Classical / Soundtrack / Alternative

Release date: July 15th  2022

 

Haunted Fury is the second single from the album Paperback Fables Opus from composer Simeon Lumgair.  We stand in the shadows of the great, the powerful and a myriad of forgotten souls. Our time is fleeting, yet we vainly conceive that not only the cosmos revolves around our existence but that we also deny the reality of mortality. 

La folie des grandeurs 
Une force majeure 
Des façades idylliques 
Les mortels jouent aux Dieux
Projetant des ombres 
Poursuivant le vent 
Baignant dans le crépuscule 
Je vous ai aperçu 
On arrive vide et on repart sombre
Retour à la poussière, retour dans les abîmes

GLANCING OVER PAPERBACKS

Artist: Simeon Lumgair (featuring Queen of Opera)

Single title: Glancing Over Paperbacks

Genre: Contemporary Classical / Soundtrack / Alternative

Release date: July 1st 2022

 

Glancing Over Paperbacks is the first single from the  album Paperback Fables Opus from composer Simeon Lumgair. A cinematic sound featuring the majestic voice of D'Andrea Pelletier, the Queen of Opera. Pelletier gracefully sings the French poem about strangers who have an encounter for a brief moment when they notice they are reading the same novel. This is one of the multiple interconnecting narratives that are weaved throughout the album.

Une affinité éphémère, traversant des contrées sublimes

Alors que nous étions si loin

Nous étions plus proches que deux amants 

Une synergie magnétique, 

tournant la page en silence

Un regard par dessus nos livres de poche envoûtants

Arrachés par nos trains Se fuyant 

Tels deux étrangers précipités dans une abîme infinie.

The Lyrics were also featured in a Poetry Festival.

It was also published in Anansi Archive Show me where it hurts, available on Amazon.
