about

Olivia Louvel embarks on her cinematic opus “Lulu In Suspension” inspired by silent- movie star Louise Brooks and her book “Lulu in Hollywood”.

“Lulu In Suspension” was released in 2008 as a digipak CD edition with booklet on Optical Sound Records and Fine Arts which is run by French artist Pierre Belouin.

“Lulu In Suspension” CD edition Worldwide available at Optical Sound Records www.optical-sound.com/releases/os.027.php

Featured on the Louise Brooks Society:
"Many years ago I came across Louise Brooks' autobiographical book Lulu in Hollywood, a collection of her essays which I thoroughly enjoyed. I composed some tracks, taking an inspiration from the imaginary landscape it created in my mind, and also more directly from the Georg Wilhelm Pabst film Pandora's Box.

Track Name: The New Blonde
Gentlemen prefer blondes
I only like bleached blondes
Starry face long eyelash
A touch of gloss
A drop of snow to light the look of you

Would you like me to become to blonde?
Become blonde
Would you like me to be ?
I want you to be I want you to be blonde
with long eyelashes floating in the air

Starry face long eyelash
A touch of gloss to blur the past

Warp to warp warp my life

Why ? hum don’t know, you don’t like blonde?
I like bleached blondes , platinum blondes
So you like all kind of blonde?
I like all kind of blonds who are not blonde

Blonde
She does not suffer
She does nothing
She’s such a child
No sense of sin
Blonde
A touch of gloss to blur the past
Warp to warp, warp my life

I like bleached blondes, platinum blondes, I only like bleached blondes
Warp, warp my life
I like all kind of blondes who are not blonde
Warp, warp my life
I like bleached blondes, platinum blondes, I only like bleached blondes
Warp,warp my life
Blonde
A touch of gloss to blur the past
Track Name: Let's Go To A Club
An easy tune for an easy trip
An easy tune for an easy love
to paradise

The boys are bemused
The girls are amused
The boys, the girls, the boys, the girls are bemused

The girls
A new form of melancholy

Let’s go to a club somewhere in Chicago somewhere in Berlin somewhere in Chicago let’s go
Let’s got to Chicago

An easy tune for an easy love
An easy trip, trip, trick, to paradise, to paradise

Let’s go to a club somewhere in Chicago somewhere in Berlin in Chicago let’s go to Chicago

Just a potential for distraction
She’s living all the time in suspension
An easy trip, trip ...
to paradise, to paradise
Paradise
Track Name: My Shapes
My days will be so light
and I don’t care now if you have blanked me
Cos I will reveal stood in front of me
And no matter what you think
I ‘ll be surfing
My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin
And all that pulse that breaks inside of me
And all that pulse raging inside of me

The water cleans my skin
but my body’s bleeding
If you accept it doesn’t hurt
that’s what I keep saying
that’s why I keep shifting

Cos I will reveal stood in front of me
And no matter what you think
I ‘ll be surfing
My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin
And all that pulse that breaks inside of me
And all that pulse raging inside of me

My shapes
My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin
My luscious skin

Cos I will reveal stood in front of me
With only me
