We share vocal cords

my body is crushed
my body is crushed
you turn on meat
everything is clean
you look like dad
you twist a thousand needles around my throat, though she is strong the cheek gets wet
you took off, you can see how plants grow faster if you just look
you are part of me

We share vocal cords: A life view together with the music band Jag tycker jag är vacker

For several years, I’d portrayed the band’s wayward straight and poetic music. The goal was to create a dimension to the theme We share vocal cords. The camera’s sound has been in pace and inconsistent with the band’s music, and the images are titled with words from the songs which I was listening to while making the images.

A music album never needs to run out. You choose how many times the songs will be played. In the same way, the images can go over and over again, back and forth between the music tracks, in their own cycle.

Jag tycker jag är vacker run by Cornelia Arvidsson along with her band members.
