IN TERRA COGNITA?

Music from the rock opera The Magical Musical Man

 

"It's a special album for me, my Mona Lisa! A dreamlike and musical tour of the world , in four volumes, that I patiently and feverishly designed for twenty years, like a gigantic mosaic.

 

Here is the first part of this puzzle finally put together in front of you. It was conceived as a spatio-temporal film, a journey to the borders of terrestrial music and human societies ...

 

These are (as The Magical Musical Man, the hero of this rock opera might say) the stained glass windows of my cathedral, dedicated to music ... in all simplicity :) So make yourself comfortable, put on the (right) sound and leave carry you ... "

JJ Chardeau
