Academie of FarSide

BandRockJam

A jazz quartet that got lost in space and ended up in a strange world, inhabited by weird super aliens

Biography

Realizing the need to keep music as wide as the universe, Oka (drums) decided to leave his-already established-cover band to form a new group with personnel from different music backgrounds that in time will shape their music to something fresh and beyond.
The experiment survived its early time and finally evolved into Academie of FarSide.

It’s easy but yet challenging to specify the music of Academie of FarSide, since the musicality fusion of each personnel has become more solid and they refused to be bound in one or several particular genres.

Bearing fresh kind of music, the band has performed at several highlighted music events as a featured artist, some of them are Indonesia Progressive Society-Prog Nite at Avenue in 2005 and Indie Music Festival at BUGS café in 2004. Their latest performances were at Ngayogjazz Festival in Yogyakarta and 30th Jazz Goes To Campus in Depok.

In every occasions the band gave new colors and was highly appreciated by the audience. In short you will hear them as a space-age jazz quartet

Lyrics

Tollinollante

Written By: Widiatmono Kapriandi

Lá sië andavë yá engë i tollinor
Lárëa mi ëa, alya mi nór ar airë
Olleltë hartaura alcarelta lende haira
Mar alcar ahastië endar ar sámar

Artar yalúmessë, furu, úvoronwë ar úanwie nar san tieltar
Heruvi, lier, illi vantar furussen
Cemenduri, mótari, lalainë valdielta cuilen
Naityala haimë, intyale nehtien, úanwië minya

Írë úanwië ar ulco lil ar lil te-orturner
I tollinor alta vanwiesse lantanë umbartenna
Nehtaine nalte, lá voro nótinë mici cuinar
Tollinollante nas

Mi tuolta, Erunna i nórë amortane
Rato paime lantane or te, ëa querne tienna
Tolli ner peryaine, ostor taltaner, nárë ar nén orturner
Eruo má né lunga tollinorenna

Á lasta sin, ulco, úanwië, furu ar aucië
Sinar nar i tier i lieva tallinóro
Sí avánielte, i nóre vanwa cemenello
I sarda nólë men ilye

The Untold Life Reality

Written By: Widiatmono Kapriandi

PROLOUGUE

I. Life or Dream? (The Importance of Understanding)
Same old thing
Do you have anything else to say?
Do you know where you're going?
You just lying here spending your day

Do you want to hear me out?
I had it enough for this time
I'm tired to watch all those mouth
Who told me "Live your dreams some other time"

Only tears falling from my eyes
And tears are falling from my heart

Don't you know I want to live my life?
I just want you to understand
This is my life, my true life that makes me live

Can I hear you, just once say, "I understand"?
Only hope keeps me strong
And God keeps me sane for all these time

But if I can not understand
Please don't tell me "You're not trying"
I'm just like a drop of water on the sand

There's still much I have to learn for living
I want to proceed my life as you do
Go to my dreams, make it all come true
Chase all the things I miss

Only tears falling from my eyes
And tears are falling from my heart

Only hope keeps me strong
And God keeps me sane for all this time

With questions in my mind
Will I strong enough to wait?

II. Homo Sapien Ratio
Don't you know I want to live my life?
Where are your promises?
Same old thing
I had it enough for this time

The fact was too much pain
But I can take it
Remind me to use my brain
Give me chance a little bit

Where's your courage?
Stare at me if you dare

I could kick you right now
But it won't take your mind back to where it belong
Don't you ask me how
Give some respect to the song!

Yes I can think of chasing the horizon
While my head is deep underwater
I can escape from the sound zone
While my head is an amphitheater

III. Live On
As we go further to the reality
We step into our mind
As we step trough sorrow
We go deeper into our heart

Hear the radio and sing along
Don't bother about things to come
Just feel the song
And jump into your mind dome

Watching the falling leaves
Sitting on the chair
And holding a cup of tea
While wind blowing your hair

Wake up! We must fight!
Have faith!
God is standing beside you
We will win in Him!

Only tears falling from my eyes
And God kept me sane for all this time

Only hope keeps me strong
And tears are falling from my heart

Look all around you
The flowers of edges growing
Watch them grow and all the things they do
Makes you think

Now don't say to me
I'm not moving this moment
Look carefully
It's a progressive movement

I'm just like a drop of water on the sand
There's still much I have to learn for living
But if I can not understand
Please don't tell me "You're not trying"

Only God is my shelter
In Him I rest all of my life

Imagine all the good works
Take the coin to some distance
Then you can see the real life
Give thanks because all of your chance

God give me strength
To live on a hard life

IV. Dream of the Day of the Dreams
Welcome to my whole dreams
Where all of my mind
Melting like an ice cream
Just watch for my sign
Welcome to my whole days
You can see my imaginations
Sit in front of TV eating "Lays"
Finish it off and change the stations
If you can't hear my jokes
You can say "Louder please."
If you still can't hear me
That's your problem!
Never look from your point of view
I'm trying to understand why I'm fine
Now you're taking me too
To your nonsense theory of mind
Now let us sit down
And watch the clouds roll away
I'm tired acting as a clown
Just sit with me, spend the whole day
This is my right address
See the clock "It's six thirty"
Well my friend, save your stress
Would you like a cup of tea?

V. Faith
Maybe I can't see all things
And I can't predict the future beyond
But one thing is for sure
God's love giving me inner peace

The Lord keep me from all harm
He will watch over my life;
the Lord will watch over my come and go
Now and forevermore

Only God is my shelter
In Him I rest all of my life
God give me strength
To live on the hard life...Amen.
