THE EMPTY FULLNESS
"The Empty Fullness" is a song along with a short film, exploring the theme of bulimia and of relation with food as a filler of a sense of emptiness. That is how something pleasant and vital can become a strong obsession, turning into something dangerous. Silversnake gets full of food and the food, in turn, slowly devours her. After all, you never meet with your own kind, but only with their shadows.
I MARRY MY PAIN
The artist is trying to appease her internal conflict between her white part and her black part, through the metaphors, the symbolism and the images. The two parts get married to seal a strong bond. Their fusion gives the completeness of the self-awareness. The good and the evil, the ugliness and the beauty, the black and the white don't exist. The presence of both with all their shades, constitute Perfection and the sense of the life. The artist want to overcome the obsession of 'The Duality' and give new perspectives about good and evil An unusual wedding ceremony in which an ancestral atmosphere blends with the biting rhythm of Silversnake Michelle's rock. But in the end, nothing is real. Just imagination of Michelle. Black become white and vice versa. Good and evil are both inside the same being. Men and women without a face, without identity, wearing the mask of themselves.
Time runs fast, too fast…. this is not life. Everything is trapped in a spin cycle turning faster and faster. The body crumbles and the world it’s melting. While I’m looking for the invisible inside myself, the world doesn’t seem to care about me and my being. Even the world doesn’t seem to care of itself. No one listen to what happens into others, no one listen to himself. Time passes and I can not find my way and I feel my dreams are shattered, and I remain trapped in a dead end, so anxiety vortex and lies suffocate me. And I run after the life that does not stop to wait for me. I was staring at the spin cycle of my washing machine and I perceived this crazy sensation of life in a vortex. So I told myself… There’s whole human beings in there, unknowingly living their lives dragged by an uncontrolled motion. A life leading anywhere. So I wrote DEAD END and for this song I create a whirling arrangement.
