Gibson es 335, 4 piece drumset. Sin parche delantero en el bombo y platillos sin fieltro para un contacto directo base-platillo. Afinación setentera del kit. Y el simbólico Gong detrás del baterista...
Wait for her es el nombre de la pieza que Waters escogió para mostrar en video promocional de su último cd: Is This the Life We Really Want?
Azzura es el nombre de la bailarina/actriz del video. Y en ella descansa el mensaje emitido por Roger..Azzura participó también en el anterior video de Waters: The Last Refugee.
El Director Sean Evans le dijo a Rolling Stone.
"That part called for a woman who was an experienced flamenco dancer and who could convincingly have a mother/daughter interaction with a child actress. Azzura was perfect: she’s a trained dancer and when not dancing, she works with kids. She did such a fantastic job during the filming of 'The Last Refugee,' that Roger and I wanted to include her in 'Wait for Her.' The song has a yearning that we felt a band performance alone wouldn’t quite address."
Y conociendo a Waters y su posición sobre el conflicto Israel-palestina, no es de asombrarse que Wait for her estuviera inspirada en la obra del Poeta Palestino Mahmoud Darwish "Lesson From the Kama Sutra (Wait for Her).
Waters entrega con ello obra cargada de melancolía e intención. Wait for her...y la concepción del todo nos sorprende a medio camino entre el llanto y la realidad.
Evans: "It needed to show femininity and sexuality but also needed to have an air of loss and pain, and longing for a time that was."
Pero los detalles son la poderosa sutileza del trabajo musical. La casi oculta cicatriz de la bailarina queda como mudo testigo-homenaje a la tragedia Siria.
Especialmente al pequeño Alan Kurdi. El pequeño ahogado encontrado en septiembre del 2015 en la costa de Turquía.
"It is sort of a continuation and also sort of a prelude," Evans said of "The Last Refugee" and "Wait for Her." "They are companion pieces, but are not meant to live in linear time with each other. Both were intentionally created that way and are meant to be open to interpretation."
Wait for her - Mahmoud Darwish
With an azure drinking cup studded with lapis, wait for her
In the evening at the spring, among perfumed roses, wait for her
With the patience of a horse trained for mountains, wait for her
With the distinctive, aesthetic taste of a prince, wait for her
With seven pillows stuffed with light clouds, wait for her
With strands of womanly incense wafting, wait for her
With the manly scent of sandalwood on horseback, wait for her
Wait for her and do not rush.
If she arrives late, wait for her.
If she arrives early, wait for her.
Do not frighten the birds in her braided hair.
Wait for her to sit in a garden at the peak of its flowering.
Wait for her so that she may breathe this air, so strange to her heart.
Wait for her to lift her garment from her calf, cloud by cloud.
And wait for her.
Take her to the balcony to watch the moon drowning in milk.
Wait for her and offer her water before wine.
Do not glance at the twin partridges sleeping on her chest.
Wait and gently touch her hand as she sets a cup on marble.
As if you are carrying the dew for her, wait.
Speak to her as a flute would to a frightened violin string,
as if you knew what tomorrow would bring.
Wait, and polish the night for her ring by ring.
Wait for her until Night speaks to you thus:
There is no one alive but the two of you.
So take her gently to the death you so desire,
The show must go on.....
Is This the Life We Really Want?
