Nature, Source D?inspiration
Format: COMPACT DISC
Before the Sixties, notions like the Anthropocene epoch, the philosophy of living in harmony with nature, the recognition of nature’s rights, climatic change, even less the sombre predictions of the collapsology described by Pablo Servigne, or the solastalgia in Glenn Albrecht’s definition, weren’t concepts that muddied the learned discourse of scientists or the media. Even if one could sense a sketchy idea of ecology’s humanities that lay just over the horizon, Nature, above all else, was a source of inspiration. So the musical path trodden by Debussy, Trenet, Django Reinhardt, Brassens, Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, Chico Hamilton, Stan Getz, Miles Davis and Dorival Caymmi relates the story of the artistic sensibilities that surround the seasonal cycle, the melancholy born of rainfall, the symbolism of trees and the sea, the fear of storms, and life close to animals.
