Pocket stereoscope » by Joaquim Alves Gaspar)





« Stereoscopy » is the definitive title of a song which I used to refer to as « Point Of View. » I changed my mind about the title while writing and singing the melodies, thinking that the former word doesn’t get the chance to be employed very often, while the latter phrase is rather common. Well, around here at least.


The underlying idea of the song is that of the benefit of sharing perspectives, for instance to get rid of old thought templates and replace them with more beneficial ones.


Stereoscopy means : three-dimensional vision produced by the fusion of two slightly different views of a scene on each retina. Thus the word evokes many perspectives and added depth, which is exactly the point. Of you.


And for once, the lyrics came about almost effortlessly :


Imagine our paths / As leading up a hill
Through the many stories / Directed by our will

Minuscule specks in space / Observers raising high
Unique by the picture / Reflected in our eye

Envisage our tales / Sceneries if you will
On so peculiar paths / We ascend our hill

Us, tiny points in time
Growing to the skies
Unique in our ways
Singular in our tries

Chorus

Speak / High on your point of view
Paint / Me the picture that you see
Hear / I’ll share my mind with you
Mutual stereoscopy

Tell / I don't know your story
Show / How is your reality
Look / It's not the same for me
New perspectives can set us free

Thriving in interdependency


Consider our lives / All the time that we fill
With the many stories / Written by our quill

Our sight reaching far / Our vision ranging wide
Unique by the ways / We have ignored or tried

Massive panorama / Our senses abide
An endless flow of scenes / Amended by the tide

You give me your relief
I'll cast my own light
Sharing between us
We deepen our insight

Repeat Chorus
