The Music Of Poligraf: Stereoscopy

(Pocket Stereoscope by Joaquim Alves Gaspar )

Stereoscopy is the definitive title of a song which I used to refer to as Point Of View. I changed my mind about the title while writing and singing the melodies, thinking that the word doesn't get the chance to be employed very often. Well, not around me that is. Until now.

The underlying idea of the song is that of the benefit of sharing perspectives, for instance to get rid of old oldness or discover new newness.

Stereoscopy means : three-dimensional vision produced by the fusion of two slightly different views of a scene on each retina. Thus the word evokes many perspectives and added depth, which is exactly the point. Of you.

For once, the lyrics came about almost effortlessly :

 

1st View

Imagine our paths / As leading up a hill

Through the many stories / Directed by our will

 

Minuscule points in time / Observers raising high

Unique by the picture / Reflected in our eye

 

2nd View

Envisage our tales / Sceneries if you will

On so peculiar paths / We ascend our hill

 

Us, tiny points in time

Growing to the skies

Unique in our ways

Singular in our tries

 

1st Chorus

Speak / High on your point of view

Paint / Me the picture that you see

Hear / I'll share my mind with you

Mutual stereoscopy

 

Tell / I don't know your story

Show / How is your reality

Look / It's not the same for me

New perspectives can set us free

 

Thriving in interdependency

 

3rd View

Consider our lives / All the time that we fill

With the many stories / Written by our quill

 

Our sight reaching far / Our vision ranging wide

Unique by the ways / We have ignored or tried

 

4th View

Massive panorama / Our senses abide

An endless flow of scenes / Amended by the tide

 

You give me your relief

I'll cast my own light

Sharing between us

We deepen our insight

 

2nd Chorus

Speak / High on your point of view

Paint / Me the picture that you see

Hear / I'll share my mind with you

Mutual stereoscopy

 

Tell / I don't know your story

Show / How is your reality

Look / It's not the same for me

New perspectives can set us free

 

Thriving in interdependency
