Music to Indonesian Poetry & Google Translator

Posted in English, Music, Poetry with tags , , , on 2014-02-16 by candycactus

It is quite a piece of art what google translator produces translating Indonesian Poetry. 

Here is a sound to this peculiar poetry: 


Hours street. I do not know what the fate of the future? 

The young men of the elders nimble drive, 


Her dream of independence of the stars 

certainty for keeping my side of this dead area 

I love the people who dare to live 

I love the people interviewed in the night 

Perfumed night dream, forfeit dust 

Hours street. I do not know what the fate of the future!



Here is the original 



Waktu jalan. Aku tidak tahu apa nasib waktu ?

Pemuda-pemuda yang lincah yang tua-tua keras,

bermata tajam

Mimpinya kemerdekaan bintang-bintangnya

kepastian ada di sisiku selama menjaga daerah mati ini

Aku suka pada mereka yang berani hidup

Aku suka pada mereka yang masuk menemu malam

Malam yang berwangi mimpi, terlucut debu

Waktu jalan. Aku tidak tahu apa nasib waktu!


by Puisi Chairil Anwar

Music for THEATER PIECE that does not EXIST

Posted in CandyCactus Music, Downloads, English, Music, Poetry with tags , on 2013-01-25 by candycactus

Mari constructed an instrument and named it “caixinha”, a small box with guitar strings, played with chop sticks. Recorded this on the river Lapao in Lencois (Bahia, Brazil) with sounds of water and me with Armenian duduk, which is sort of an ancient clarinet, and later added some stuff.

Do you know any theater director who would like to use this music? Maybe the theater piece exists after all?
