The Persistence of Memory by DpressedSoul The Persistence of Memory by DpressedSoul
I remember a night from my past
When I was stabbed in the back
And it's all coming back
And I feel that pain again

(Anathema, Empty)

Weathered graffiti by graffiti artist C215, Oranienstraße, Berlin (Germany)
Inspired by the music and lyrics of Duncan Patterson
after spending a wonderful evening with Alternative 4, Duncan Patterson and Johnny Cronin
at the "theARTer Galerie" in Berlin on December, 6.

Hey! Vielen Dank, dass Du mir die Augen geöffnet hast! :omg:
Ich hatte beim Fotografieren schon irgendwie das Gefühl, dass es sich hierbei nicht um "irgendein" Graffiti handelt. Aber letztlich kenne ich mich in der Szene überhaupt nicht aus, hätte also auch mit seiner Signatur vermutlich nur bedingt etwas anfangen können. Habe mir gerade seine Website angeschaut und das Graffiti im "Urzustand" wiedergefunden: www.flickr.com/photos/c215/327… :D

hehe "Dass Du mir die Augen geöffnet hast" klingt aber auch krass....ja dieser C215 is schon echt krass und wo der nich schon überall was, sagen wir mal, angebracht hat!
Aber immer gerne ick bin ja auch nur so'n kleiner kunstafiner typ aus Berlin, der halt alles mögliche streetart/graffiti-mäßige feiert und noch viel mehr, aber es ist mir eine freude weitergeholfen zu haben^^

Wow, this is a moving piece, especially with the thought-provoking quote. Great lighting, it really helps capture the feelings.

And love the reference to Dali in the title :icondaliplz:

You're welcome, and Dali is my favourite artist, so if there's a Dali reference, I tend to catch it! :3

Btw, it was a very fine concert indeed. Duncan Patterson with Alternative 4 was stunning and I also liked the support act very much. Have you ever heard of Johnny Cronin and the Aftermath? Excellent stuff from Ireland. :D

I actually hadn't heard of Johnny Cronin and the Aftermath - However I checked them out on youtube - Great cover of "The Power of Love" - It's also funny there's another video I checked out that they did with violist Steve Wickham a childhood mate of mine. I haven't seen Steven (We called him that) in about 35 years - He was really successful in a group called the Waterboys - Time goes by quickly and each river takes a different course :) Nice memories.

Danke sehr! Jau, sind ein paar ziemlich gute Bilder dabei herausgekommen. War außerdem ganz spannend, Duncan Patterson nach einem sehr schönen Konzert (in Wohnzimmeratmosphäre) persönlich kennenzulernen, auch wenn ich ihn aufgrund seines irischen Akzents in Kombination mit einer Erkältung kaum verstanden habe. ;)

Am WE geht's dann erstmal nach Hamburch, das Konzert von Muse dürfte aber ungleich "unpersönlicher" werden (o2world, ausverkauft). :lol:
