Uncomfortable in comfortable clothes, Aymeric’s style pays homage not to common convenience but to 19th-century kings, such as Ludwig of Bavaria, and 20th-century heroines, like Marlene Dietrich. As the Parisian stylist and artist announces, “You can aspire to be whoever you want to be.”

“It’s a mysteriously beautiful recording from, I am told, Robbie Robertson‘s label. It’s of crickets. That’s right, crickets, the first time I heard it… I swore I was listening to the Vienna Boys Choir, or the Mormon Tabernacle choir. It has a four-part harmony it is a swaying choral panorama. Then a voice comes in on the tape and says, “What you are listening to is the sound of crickets. The only thing that has been manipulated is that they slowed down the tape.” No effects have been added of any kind except that they changed the speed of the tape. The sound is so haunting. I played it for Charlie Musselwhite and he looked at me as if I pulled a Leprechaun out of my pocket.” – TOM WAITS

This is the original version called “The Ballad Of Twisted Hair”. New agey spoken word… ughh… Gods Cricket Chorus was created in (1992) By Jim Wilson & David Carson.
Over an hour long looped version.
Tom Waits (on Jim Wilson): “Wilson, he’s always playing with time. I heard a recording recently of crickets slowed way down. It sounds like a choir, it sounds like angel music. Something sparkling, celestial with full harmony and bass parts – you wouldn’t believe it. It’s like a sweeping chorus of heaven, and it’s just slowed down, they didn’t manipulate the tape at all. So I think when Wilson slows people down, it gives you a chance to watch them moving through space. And there’s something to be said for slowing down the world.”
