Ni Ten Ichi Ryu / Two Sword Technique (by Photek) 

With Star Wars: Visions premiering on Disney Plus today, I’m reminded of Photek’s Ni Ten Ichi Ryu (Two Swords Technique). This was a classic that used to play on MTV’s Electronica show, AMP, back in the 1990s. It was also used in the end credits…

Malignant (dir. by James Wan) 

James Wan’s newest horror film, Malignant is something that really needs to be seen without any prior input on it. If there’s any way you can watch it – whether you see it in theatres or on HBO Max up until October 10th – It’s…

Vide cor Meum – by Patrick Cassidy and Hans Zimmer 

Vide cor Meum (See My Heart) is a song that I normally associate with Ridley Scott’s 2005 epic, Kingdom of Heaven. The song is played after the death of the King (Edward Norton) in that song. What I didn’t realize, however, is that the song’s origin is from Scott’s update to Jonathan Demme’s Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal. While making my way though the tv series of the same name (which is available in it’s entirety on Netflix at the time of this writing), the song popped up and I had one of those DiCaprio / Rick Dalton moments of recognition.

According to Wikipedia, the song was created by Patrick Cassidy and Hans Zimmer and is based on the story Vita Nova, by Dante Aligheri. It’s really a beautiful piece. The lyrics are below the video.

Enjoy.

In the original dialects – Aligerhi’s voice in Florentin / God in Latin: 

E pensando di lei (Florentin dialect)
Mi sopragiunse un soave sonno
Ego dominus tuus (Latin)
Vide cor tuum
E d’esto cor ardendo (Florentin dialect)
Cor tuum (Latin)
Umilmente pascea (Florentin dialect)
Appresso gir lo ne vedea piangendo
La letizia si convertia in amarissimo pianto
Io sono in pace
Cor meum (Latin)
Io sono in pace (Florentin dialect)
Vide cor meum (Latin)

In English: 

While thinking of her (Beatrice)
A sweet sleep came over me
I am your master
Here is your heart
And on this burning heart
Your heart
(she) obediently fed
Then I saw him (Amore) leaving in tears
Joy became bitterest lament
I am in peace
My heart
I am in peace
See my heart
