god i love this song



The title means "bagatelle in the water" so i always assumed a bagatelle was some kind of fish. I always picture little fish and the blueness of the water when I listen to this piece.
(A bagatelle actually means "a short piece of music, typically for the piano, and usually of a light, mellow and innocent character." via wiki)

listening to it reminded me of this David Hockney etching, The Boy Hidden in a Fish



It's from Hockney's grimm's fairytale book which I'd been meaning to post about for a while..it's so stylish










you can see the rest of the etchings here

I really really like david hockney's work in general, I own one of his poster books and used to have a big photocopy of this one up in my room

Today I saw The Diary of Tortov Roddle, a beautiful animated film by Kunio Kato (stills via here) My sister recently saw The House of Toy Building Blocks by the same guy and said it was great... his debut film The Apple Incident sounds pretty interesting too

in all my time as blogger, this is one of the best reviews about this theme, in fact you have many information that I can't find in others sides.
