Depicting the life of Fyodor Dostoevsky in musical movements.

“I exist. In thousands of agonies — I exist. I’m tormented on the rack — but I exist! Though I sit alone in a pillar — I exist! I see the sun, and if I don’t see the sun, I know it’s there. And there’s a whole life in that, in knowing that the sun is there.”

MARBLE COLD AND SOFT AS SATIN (a Henry Winter mix)

[listen @ 8tracks]

Tracklist:

ACT I

all the rowboats (regina spektor)

Hear them whispering French and German
Dutch, Italian, and Latin
When no one’s looking I touch a sculpture
Marble cold and soft as satin

the secret life of letters (scissor sisters)

What is the full speed of language
When there is nothing to say
What’s in the air
There must be something there
But it’s not in service today

THE BACCHAE

within the meadows (morbin)

ACT II

secret (the pierces)

If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

female robbery (the neighbourhood)

And don’t let the police know.
Anything, anything,
Don’t tell them anything,
Anything, please.

patron saint hunter (timber timbre)

They know what you did
They know what you did
They know what you did ain’t right

the angry river (the hat)

The awful cost of all we lost
As we looked the other way
We’ve paid the price of this cruel device
Till we’ve nothing left to pay

regret (esthetic education)

Regret is what you get when reason is left out to hang

leave my body (florence and the machine)

I’m gonna leave my body
(moving up to higher ground)
I’m gonna lose my mind
(History keeps pulling me down)

dulce et decorum est pro patria mori (regina spektor)

After all, the children being born into
A time of searching for some glory
And the lie’s still repeating through the years
Dulce et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori

It’s hard, to live
It’s hard, it’s harder
Than it’s ever been before
Things that used to comfort me
Don’t comfort me anymore

But you can’t spend your whole life
Waiting for God to kiss you back

EPILOGUE
(“I hope you’ll excuse me, but I’m late for an appointment.”)

“We could do it, you know.”
“What?”
“Leave the district. Run off. Live in the woods. You and I, we could make it.”

“We run away.”
“What?”
“We take to the woods and make a run for it. You said yourself you thought that we could do it! That morning of the reaping. You said —”
“Okay, let’s run away.”
“Really? You don’t think I’m mad? You’ll go with me?”
“I do think you’re mad and I’ll still go with you.” 

“What about the other families, Katniss? The ones who can’t run away? Don’t you see? It can’t be about just saving us anymore. Not if the rebellion’s begun! You could do so much.” 

“I was wrong. We should have gone when you said.”
“No.”
“It’s not too late.”
“Yeah, it is.”

I think about going to the lake, but I’m so weak that I barely make it to my meeting place with Gale. I sit on the rock where Cressida filmed us, but it’s too wide without his body beside me. Several times I close my eyes and count to ten, thinking that when I open them, he will have materialized without a sound as he so often did.
