TUNE Lunar Bird - Swallow Man Aviary
'Swallow Man Aviary' recalls that end of Summer feeling. You are running breathlessly on a desert shore as the sun goes down. Then suddenly you stop, sit down for a while and you’re pervaded by an unexpected overwhelming melancholy. It fills your mind with poetic images and gloomy thoughts about human nature. The line “Children hurting bees with sewing needles” depicts the innate cruelty that sometimes permeates human behavior. At the same time, this verse represents a call for action to save bees and, as a consequence, our fragile ecosystem. The “Swallow Man” in the title refers to the Italian piano legend Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and his obsession with perfection.
