the muse

Međunarodne muze ujedinjenje na jednom albumu

Berlinska pjevačica i kompozitorica, Anna Aliena, 30. listopada 2015., objaviti će svoj 5. EP album nazvan The Muse. To je album ispunjen osjećajnim, višejezičnim baladama.

Cover "The Muse"Berlin, 26. kolovoza 2015. U proteklih nekoliko godina, skladateljica Anna Aliena je često svoju glazbu nazivala „alien pop“, što je i naziv njezinog trećeg EP albuma iz 2013. Njezin 5. EP album The Muse (Go!Diva Records, datum izlaska: 30. listopada 2015.), označava promjenu stila: Na ovom album, umjetnica iz Berlina se usredotočuje na emocionalne balade u stilu valcera. Iako njezine pjesme više nisu prodorne kao one iz prijašnje produkcije, te je čak ostavila i svoju ružičastu periku iz Swinging Berlin (2014) u garderobi, Anna Aliena i dalje ostaje vjerna svojem stilu. Njezin teatralan mezzosopran krasi sve njezine uratke koje je objavila od 2011.

Pjesme na albumu The Muse okrenute su prema procesu stvaranja glazbe. Zato kompozitorica pruža iskren uvid u svoje inspirirajuće susrete s muzama. Primjerice, tu je „Sasha“, kojoj su upućene tri slavne ruske riječi i nekoliko trenutaka ljubavi. Ljutnja, melankolija i žudnja za novim mjestima (traka 5: „I’m Gonna Fly Away“) mijenjaju se, baš kao i jezici teksta. Štoviše, muze dolaze iz tri različite zemlje. Vokali se isprepliću s orkestralnim aranžmanima koji imaju brojne dionice gudača, te relativno malo udaraljki. Glas je taj koji priča priču o ljubavi, žudnji, patnji i samoj glazbi.

Tijekom odmora u Hrvatskoj, svjetska putnica Anna Aliena, otkrila je ljubav prema hrvatskom jeziku. Na kraju svog putovanja, napisala je pjesmu koja se zove „Tvoje plave oči“ („Deine Blauen Augen“). Ova lagana i sentimentalna šansona, dostupna je u dvije verzije. Učiteljica pjevanja Snežana Nena Brzaković i obožavateljica Nina Čović, prevele su originalni njemački tekst u hrvatsku verziju „Tvoje plave oči“, koja je već očarala brojne slušatelje u cijeloj bivšoj Jugoslaviji.

Prikladno uz pjesmu, Anna Aliena je odabrala naslovnicu CD-a na kojoj pozira uz zalazak sunca uz more. Sa sanjivim očima zamišljeno gleda u daljinu. Ne zna još tko će biti njezina sljedeća muza koja će se pojaviti na obzoru. Međutim, pojavljuje se i zraka svjetla s neba koja joj daje novu inspiraciju. Štoviše, ima plan vratiti se na stjenovitu hrvatsku obalu kako bi snimila spot za pjesmu „Tvoje plave oči“.

30. listopada 2015, The Muse će biti objavljen na CD-u, te dostupan za digitalno preuzimanje.

O nama

Go!Diva Records je osnovana u rujnu 2011. godine, kako bi surađivala sa snažnim ženskim vokalima i skladateljima koji žele sami stvoriti put na kojem se će stvarati glazbu. Djevojke koje potpišu za Go!Diva Records, potpuno su odgovorne za cijeli proces stvaranja pjesme, poput skladanja i pisanja teksta. Dopuštamo im da izraze svoje individualne ideje koji ne moraju odgovarati zadanim okvirima. Štoviše, naša uprava ih i potiče na takvu vrstu kreativnosti!

Go!Diva Records se stilski specijalizirala za elektronsku pop glazbu. Glazbenica Go!Diva je nadarena, samopouzdana, seksi i ženstvena bez snažnog osjećaja potrebe da se dopadne svakome.

Našim umjetnicima se daje prilika za samostalan odabir izgleda, frizura i šminke. Čak i ako Vam se ne sviđa, i dalje ćemo nastaviti raditi na našem motu „Girls Go Diva!“

The Making Of “I’m Gonna Fly Away“

At the beginning of July I thought that my forthcoming record The Muse was finished after writing “Deine Blauen Augen“ / “Tvoje Plave Oči“. However, I had itchy feet to travel again even though my holidays in Croatia were over. After almost ten years of living in Berlin I’ve had a feeling not to be at home here any more. Suddenly I was humming the chorus melody …

I guess I might have been inspired while skating at Tempelhofer Feld, the former airport of Berlin. When the weather is fine, I often go there and pretend to be an airplane to take off. You can see it in the music video of “I’m Gonna Fly Away“. This summer I’ve also spent a lot of time at the lakes of the city. For a while I withdrew from the art scene, watching magnificent sunsets instead. In fact, nature is the only true artist! After my holidays I was simply craving for peace and quiet to reflect on certain things in my life. In such moments I wrote these lyrics:

I’m Gonna Fly Away

I fell off the swing in the city of dreams
I crashed into the dirt of the streets
How I tried to be an artist
searching for love!
For art they would not pay
and love was just for sale

I’m gonna fly away from here,
away from the capital of superficiality
I’ll stay away, away from you, dear
’cause you are not my friend
and I won’t come again

I was digging the scene in the city of dreams
I was digging for a cake in the cream
From station to station
I’ve been running for the train
My inner child is calling
to escape from the rain

I’m gonna fly away from here …

My song will fly from the southern sky
where the crystal sea is clear
And I’m gonna sing in foreign words
The sun will shine on me

I’m gonna fly away from here …

While making the video, two friends of mine assisted me at the camera. What would I have done without Albert Ewert and Ralph-Joachim Edler von Görbitz! I could not have filmed myself on the swing or during the skating episodes at Tempelhofer Feld! So I’m really grateful to them for their help. In my opinion they did a great job!

One Saturday morning in late July I went to the visitor platform at Tegel airport. Surrounded by families with little children, I recorded film material of planes during take-off. Holding my camcorder, I felt a slight pain in my heart. How I wished to be on board of one of those planes! Instead, I travelled just a few kilometres to shoot a beautiful sequence at the shore of lake Wannsee.

Now the video of “I’m Gonna Fly Away“ has been online for two weeks. Since its release on YouTube I’ve observed special popularity in Romania, Bulgaria and Macedonia. After the recording at Planet Earth Studios sound engineer Alex said, “This sounds like a song from the Balkans!“ Well, some coincidences just happen without a reason …

On the EP The Muse “I’m Gonna Fly Away“ was chosen to be track 5, the link between “Deine Blauen Augen“ and the Croatian version “Tvoje Plave Oči“. One thing is for sure: I have to fly away in order to produce my next video!

Message To My Fans

Cover "The Muse"Dear fans,

finally I’ve decided to write blog articles to intensify our communication. In the last couple of days I had been wondering if I should address you in German or in English. As many of you live outside Germany, I think it’s most suitable to run this website in English language. Don’t hesitate to send me comments and emails in your native tongue. I will try my best to understand you and reply to you as fast as possible.

As you might have noticed, I’ve been very creative this summer. During the first half of 2015 I was almost afraid not to be able to complete my fifth EP The Muse. However, just one very special human encounter was sufficient to keep on following my mission of making music.

On my YouTube channel and my SoundCloud profile I’ve already given you some insights into my new record, e.g. the Croatian love song “Tvoje Plave Oči” or “I’m Gonna Fly Away”. To be honest, my recent music strongly differs from my former alien pop productions, but so what? I can only compose what I receive through the channel of inspiration.

Of course I’m very curious about your opinions about my latest songs …

Love,

Anna
