30 Sep 2019. Episode 4 part 3. Remixing Rune's "Of Different Skies"


27 Sep 2019. New video Archive ! First live ever, back in 2008


23 Sep 2019. New blog post "Rune (2008 - 2012)"



BIO

I want to allow my listeners to escape from everyday life,
to live a moment that uplifts the soul.

For that, I take my guitar, which is like the writer's pen :
it's my voice, my way of expression.

Thanks to music, I create ambiances, they move from darkness to light,
and that moment of grace is my objective.

Intense, epic, full of poetry and imaging, these ambiances come to life
as a mix between rock, metal, electronic sounds and spiritual atmospheres.

click here for lyrics in English

Il y a dans l'air une impression de fin de saison
Dans l'atmosphère une mélancolie
Il y a pourtant bien eu des moments où nous rêvions
Si fort, que cela dépassait la vie

Je pense que les gens ont vraiment soif d'existence
Qu'ils cherchent tous à renforcer le lien
Ils voudraient oublier toutes les choses sans importance
Être libres, des amis sur le même chemin

Alors on est allé visiter les ruines
Trouver un endroit où se rassembler
On a passé de grandes allées bordées de glycines
C'est ici que l'on va se ressembler

On a accroché des lanternes, pour créer notre espace
On a fait en sorte que les gens se sentent bien
On va laisser le genre de souvenirs que rien n'efface
Ça sera un peu comme notre jardin

REFRAIN
L'esprit du feu et du soleil
Se sentir à l'unisson
Même essence, même ciel
Nos âmes en fusion

J'ai allumé un grand feu, entamé une danse
La magie des flammes et de la lumière
Une énergie folle virevoltait en cadence
Une communion avec l'univers

On a formé un grand cercle avec tout le monde
Pour célébrer la beauté de la vie
Comme il est bon de partager de bonnes ondes
"De ton esprit à mon esprit"

REFRAIN
L'esprit du feu et du soleil
Se sentir à l'unisson
Même essence, même ciel
Nos âmes en fusion

Eclipse (2019)

the eclipse, that moment when everything goes dark
the night falls, the light fades away
nature is at rest, people are afraid
the elders thought it was the end of the world
intervention of the divine
but to me, it's a sign that he's here
Shadow

I try to hold on, I try to keep my pace
but I have my own weaknesses
even though, the future is uncertain
I try to stay positive

and I wait for more
favorable skies

the wind in the trees, the birds singing
the sun has risen once again
isn't the day full of hope ?
didn't I tell you that I was Light ?
that I wanted to give the sun back its splendour
because all looks lifeless, in sepia colours

and I wait for more
favorable skies

Recréer le Monde (2019)

Lumière est là, assis à contempler
Le jour se lever sur la plaine
Le pinceau à la main, il regarde son tableau
Des collines verdoyantes, descendant vers la mer
Des collines verdoyantes, descendant vers la mer

Avant, le paysage était gris
Les gens tristes, la mine assombrie
Il a suffi de quelques couleurs
D'une grande force d'esprit et de coeur
Pour redonner espoir à l'humanité
Pour redonner espoir à l'humanité

Lumière révèle la vie
Et les couleurs d'un monde meilleur
Où les gens sont ensemble
Vivent en équilibre
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie

Les bras tendus vers le ciel, Lumière décrit de belles arabesques
Une brise se lève doucement
La plume à la main, il regarde les mots danser
Des poèmes magnifiques, flottant dans le vent
Des poèmes magnifiques, flottant dans le vent

Lumière révèle la vie
Et les couleurs d'un monde meilleur
Où les gens sont ensemble
Vivent en équilibre
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie

Lumière est là, assis à contempler
Le jour se coucher sur la plaine
Le marteau à la main, il regarde sa sculpture
Des hommes en harmonie, avec la nature
Des hommes en harmonie, avec la nature

Lumière révèle la vie
Et les couleurs d'un monde meilleur
Où les gens sont ensemble
Vivent en équilibre
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie
Harmonie, vivre en harmonie

Lumière (2019)

beauty in my heart
my mind is chilling out
I feel the grandeur of nature
I feel the greatness of mankind

surrounded by ancient beauties
I know no ennemies
I'm open to the world
ready to embrace life

I am Light and I love life
There is not a single thing
In this world, before my eyes
That I don't like, cause I am Light

enjoying every season
every part of the world
I'll make the moment last forever
I'll make you forget the past

and if you have some doubt
I'll raise it like a curtain
like a veil on a mirror
covering the way to liberty

I am Light and I love life
There is not a single thing
In this world, before my eyes
That I don't like, cause I am Light

Life is a Theatre (2019)

did you ever crash down the stairs
to discover what's happening outside
as if something were missing right here
we're looking forward to moving on

life is an ancient greek theatre play
like watching the scene unfold
just find a bench where you can contemplate
a play between joy and sadness

we want to believe in our ideals
we want to make the best of this day
we'd like to make the right choices
we want to be in harmony

clouds are far away now
they left a rain on the lush grass
spring is starting, a soothing melancholy
we sit down and watch
an ancient greek theatre play
-

Elégance (2019)

Les mains sur le piano, faisant tomber les notes en gouttes de pluie
Le vent dans les rideaux, la douceur du printemps sur ta mélodie
Les rayons du soleil viennent dissiper le ciel gris
Ton âme sur le piano, laissant résonner les notes jusqu'à minuit
-

Sérénité (2019)

C'était un de ces dimanches après-midi
La grande vitre laissait le soleil entrer dans la salle
Et moi, dessinant des ambiances de mélancolie
A l'aide de quelques arpèges aux sonorités minérales

Comme les notes, le temps paraissait comme suspendu
Cette ambiance, ce rêve éveillé, où tout semble idéal
Qui ne rêve pas d'un monde où l'agitation n'est plus ?
Moi, j'aime faire résonner l'espoir sous le toit cathédrale
-

Gazing at the Stars (2019)

It was one of those simple nights, the end of something,
The weekend slowly fading away, carrying all the memories
Tomorrow won't be the same, the start of a new cycle
You're enjoying the last warm breeze

The animals are quiet, the city falling asleep
But in your mind it’s full of life, everything shaking around
You wish things had lasted forever
You'd like to stop the moments and freeze them in time

CHORUS
Tonight you're here with your cup of tea
A simple moment, gazing at the stars
A last evening away from the world
And life is easy here and now

On the city rooftops, we take in the distance
The sky wasn't really the same yesterday
Yet the moon and stars, everything was already here
Seems it was a million thoughts ago, at least

A naive slice of life, we want to make it special
Our eyes wanting to escape to our daydreams
We might think we're at the end of a series
In which we loved every season, every character

CHORUS
Tonight you're here with your cup of tea
A simple moment, gazing at the stars
A last evening away from the world
And life is easy here and now

Make Your Stories Fly (2019)

You keep your thoughts hidden
Like an old book that keeps its words
A book that has never been shared
It has become dusty, it has become so dusty

You think about your own security
It is better if things are this way
Others may judge you
But only you can understand
You say only you can understand

Chorus
Lay yourself bare, let us see the light
Make your stories fly
Open the doors for blank pages
We shall write on them
Without your choosing the cover

Yet, sharing is the fruit of freedom
You would like to unleash everything
You wish people
Would accept you as you are

But you have plenty of these old books
You don't even know them anymore
They are buried so deep
Lying on your bookshelf
Your last sanctuary, your last sanctuary

chorus
Lay yourself bare, let us see the light
Make your stories fly
Open the doors for blank pages
We shall write on them
Without your choosing the cover

Dans les Vapeurs de la Ville (2018)

Dans tes souvenirs lointains
Tu marchais dans la rue
Tu étais le roi du monde

Tu te rappelles les avenues
Promenades bordées d'arbres
Tu paradais dans leur ombre

Un château inébranlable
Pourtant perdu dans l'inconnu
Qui ne craignait aucun danger

Une citadelle à toute épreuve
Vaisseau flottant tranquillement
Dans les vapeurs de la ville

C'était un homme qui tous les jours faisait
De la vie un jeu, de la cité son lieu
Ambition dévorante, n'en avait jamais assez
Il a fini par se laisser dépasser

Tu t'es toi-même enchainé
Tu croyais la vie éternelle
Hanté par tes ambitions

La peur s'est emparée de ton âme
Tu sais que tout est changeant
Les cartes sont redistribuées

Un château fait de sable
Qui quand la mer descend
Brusquement s'effondre

Une citadelle à l'épreuve du temps
Un vaisseau chavirant
Dans les vapeurs de la ville
-

Evanescent (2018)

Il y a comme une absence
Quelque chose qui fuit dans le temps
Qui nous détourne et nous éloigne
De l'instant présent

J'ai envie de vivre pleinement
De t'emmener par la main dans les champs
Regarder la pluie tomber en souriant
Oublier l'avenir un moment

Observer, ce moment furtif
Fugitif, qui se dérobe devant nos yeux
Dans le silence, apprécier les lieux
Avec présence, regarder les cieux
-

Brume (2018)

Fragile, tu es si fragile dans ton habit de lumière
Goutelettes d'eau figées dans l'atmosphère dans un matin frais d'hiver
Sur mon navire élancé à vive allure, dans les brumes de la vie
Tu me caches l'horizon sans me donner une idée de ce qui va bien m'arriver

Fragile, tu es si fragile dans ton habit d'hiver
Ephémère, une empreinte dans la neige, bien vite effacé ce repère !
Douce illusion, tu recouvres le monde des larmes de la terre
Comme un rêve qui s'évapore au matin, tu repartiras pleine de mystère
-

Illumination (2018)

En un éclair t'apparaît
Une lueur au bout du tunnel
Mais tu as vécu une nuit bien longue
Inébranlable, à fendre l'âme
Mais deux secondes ont suffi
Pour voir le jour se lever
Eclairer la lande d'un jaune intense
Faire la lumière sur toutes tes craintes
-

Ombre et Lumière (2018)

En nous, un combat se joue
Deux faces d'une pièce, comme la nuit et le jour
Un jeu d'ombre et de lumière
Parfois amour, parfois colère
-

Eternel (2018)

A chaque fois tu te dis
Que c'est l'automne de ta vie
Tout s'effondre dans ton univers
Et tu as peur de manquer d'air

Tu es bien attaché à ton monde
Mais la scène a déjà changé
De nouvelles feuilles, de nouvelles ondes
Et le rideau s'est levé

Tu rêves de choses éternelles
Dans ce mouvement perpétuel
Tu rêves de choses éternelles
Tableau figé par l'aquarelle

Les maillons de la chaîne sont si forts
Tu t'y attaches comme à ton propre corps
Et si la vie ne tenait qu'à un fil ?
Tout change en un battement de cil

Mais ce moment quand tu souris
Semble bien tenir de l'infini
Instant suspendu dans l'existence
Où je perçois l'insouciance
-

Être Libre (2017)

Tu aimerais donner du sens, changer ton existence
Tu aimerais changer le tableau qui se dessine
Changer la couleur qui domine

Observer, être libre
T'envoler, t'échapper
Observer, être libre
T'envoler, te détacher

Changer ce qui est écrit, ce que l'on attend de toi, casser ces habitudes
S'échapper de nous-mêmes, être présent aux autres, pouvoir briser ces chaînes
Changer ce qui est écrit, ce que l'on attend de toi, casser ces habitudes
S'échapper de nous-mêmes, être présent aux autres

Tu voudrais juste vivre le présent
Marcher doucement, respirer lentement
Tu voudrais juste ne pas passer à côté de ta vie
Ne pas ressasser ces choses toute la nuit

Observer, être libre
T'envoler, t'échapper
Observer, être libre
Ressentir, exister

Changer ce qui est écrit, ce que l'on attend de toi, casser ces habitudes
S'échapper de nous-mêmes, être présent aux autres, pouvoir briser ces chaînes
Changer ce qui est écrit, ce que l'on attend de toi, casser ces habitudes
S'échapper de nous-mêmes, être présent aux autres

Un Pont dans le Temps (2017)

Où sont mes rêves
De grandes odyssées
Une ville chaque soir
Des eaux aux nouvelles teintes

La beauté d'une ville
Des montagnes dans les cieux
L'horizon qui t'appelle
Le bruissement de la vie

Refrain :
Comme un pont dans le temps
L'herbe a poussé depuis
Le tangage de mon esprit
Nos vies qui se reflètent dans l'eau

Miroir de souvenirs
Pensons à l'avenir
La route nous y mènera toujours
La route nous y mènera toujours

L'esprit agité
Les sens en éveil
A travers les carreaux
Ma fenêtre comme tableau

L'envie de ressentir
Les pas sur les pavés
D'entendre l'eau ruisseler
Les statues me parler
-

Te Figer (2017)

Des volutes empreintes d'un passé
Un parfum dans les airs qui te guide
Tu veux figer ton visage dans le temps
Prendre racine dans ce parc
Te pétrifier sur ces carreaux de marbre

Les vestiges et les ruines ramènent à toiv Une mélodie que personne n'entend
Des images d'un autre temps
Mais tu vois, dans les tours lointaines du dernier monde
Tu cherches l'odeur d'une saison qui revient

Pourtant, tu aimerais tout figer dans ta vitrine
Ces choses offertes à ta rêverie
Dans ce monde où tu ne veux pas
Que tout devienne poussière un jour

-

Confidence (2016)

I always feared that everything around us
And everything around me
Belongs to no one
As if time had stolen our universe
As if someone picked up our flowers
Where are you now
You used to be
So happy before
Don't forget that falling leaves
Will grow again in spring
Don't forget that somewhere here around
Someone believes in you
It's no time to close your eyes
There is no need
To think the grass is greener
On the other side
It's no time to close your eyes

-
Living Inspired (2016)

O dear sun, I was feeling your warmth
As if time had stopped
Just right under my feet
At each step I walk

Seconds trapped into infinity
No need to believe in anything
Having your mind pulled up to the sky
Feeling that stones and trees are part of you

When something greater inspires me
Living it everyday
There is something greater inspiring me
I'm living it everyday

O dear sun, when time has stopped
At the park where I often ride
The demons of my own mind
But I know they're only figments of my imagination

I often feel eternity
Not able to keep it
By my side
By my side
-

Uniformized (2014)

Uniformized
I have to think like you
Uniformized
I have to feel like you
Uniformized
I have to get the same things as you
Uniformized

Uniformized
You have to think like me
Uniformized
You have to feel like me
Uniformized
You have to get the same things as me
Uniformized

Uniformized
It has to look like this
Uniformized
It has to taste like that
Uniformized
Someone help me please
Uniformized

Uniformized
We have a beautiful world
Uniformized
Try to break monotony
Uniformized
Better focus on diversity
Uniformized

But who's left to think of the little boy
On the side of the road, just wanting to believe
You have nowhere to go with your car
No place outside of your heart
Think of the little boy, just wanting to believe

This world sometimes goes upside down
We can not continue this way
Respect the Earth, respect Humanity

Who's left to think of the little boy
On the side of the road, just wanting to believe
You have nowhere to go with your car
No place outside of your heart
Think of the little boy, just wanting to believe

-
Soliloque (2014)

Distance, Silence, Solitude

Silence
There was silence
We got silence

Peace
We got peace

Distance
We got distance

Peace
There was peace

Distance, Silence, Solitude

Comment ne pas être touché par tant de beauté ?

-
The Raging Sea and the Warming Sun (2013)

We live in a charming land
Surrounded by the sea and islands
We already saw such strong winds
When the sky gets darker

Waiting for the storm to come
Maybe that you feel all alone
When you decide to come to us
The waves seem bigger to our eyes

And you, the sea, continue to build up
All morning long
Pushing sea waters toward the shore
Pushing sea waters toward the shore

Waiting for the storm to come
Maybe that you feel all alone
When you decide to come to us
The waves seem bigger to our eyes

Pushing sea waters toward the shore
Pushing sea waters toward the shore

So much to learn from life
Never have time enough to complete
To reach the paradise
And feel the, and feel the warm from you

Where has it gone ? Where has it gone ?

Where has it gone ?
The sensation when we were alone
Facing now the clouds with so much ease
Than all I've known before

-
Every Leaf (2013)

I spent a life contemplating
But now I feel I'm realizing
It's not a fate to live apart
It's just a shame not being there

But time goes by I'm getting old
Shedding my leaves on the passers-by
I saw the true life, unwavering
While people here have frantic lives

Life is awake in every leaf
Life is awake in every leaf
Whatever you do and wherever you go
Life is awake in every leaf

-
This Mood (2013)

I'm flying so high
That sometimes I'm falling
I'm falling hard
To what seems so real to me

Oh I don't need this
A school of fish
I can't escape from
I'm paralysed, I'm paralysed

Like I'm alone in this mood
Like I'm paralysed by fear
Like my words turn into injury
Like it's no way to express
Like I've to write to confess
Feeling my mind closing in

I know I want to stop hurting
Cos' you're falling, you're falling
To what seems so real to me
I have no ease to really see
What's happening around now
When I follow, when I follow my soul

Like I'm alone in this mood
Like I'm paralysed by fear
Like my words turn into injury
Like it's no way to express
Like I've to write to confess
Feeling my mind closing in

-
Break the Line (2013)

This sensation to leave your life
And all that was in place before
No need to watch your dreams in a screen anymore
But it's the way you used to live

All your marks left away

Maybe you know what is to happen
Just have to break the line and accept
Cause it's not hard and it's not dark
It's just what you really want

Like your heart is your own civilisation
And as long as you fear and hide
This one is gone to burn itself
And you just want it back

All your marks left away

Maybe you know what is to happen
Just have to break the line and accept
Cause it's not hard and it's not dark
It's just what you really want

-
Open Wide (2010)

I was waiting for your rain to fall in your sky of thunder
For the flowers blossoming at the end of winter
They sleep quietly in the shadow of the trees
My mind is open wide, I see your country

The Lys rivier bathes your feet and your gracious grass
Leaves of your trees still wear the red color of the last autumn
Houses’ runes and villages’ squares surrounded by water
I am thehappiest man in this place of beauty

-
Great Feelings - (2010)

Happy to feel the same feeling as when I was younger
A great feeling of freshness, the breath of nature every year
I'm afraid that one day villages are no longer
Because people meeting at festivities, I like it more than ever

Happiness by a spring sun ray, forest in the distance, water around

I ride the edge of woods and cross a lot of watercourses
Leaking following ancient rules as children of the sea
Marquees are stood up flags all hoisted to the sky
For people to divide their precious land of promise

Happiness by a springsun ray, forest in the distance, water around

-
Hidden Mountains (2009)

In truth, I used to be too much
Even with my sympathy too much
And in all honesty, too much
The world revolving around me seems to be too much

It is always there for me

And for serenity, let the sun
Shine in, laying the mountains bare to our
To our vision
Being able to see the things that I am able to see
Oh love, oh love

It is always there for me, even hidden
It is always there for me, even hidden
I don't know what is behind, there for me
I don't know what is behind, there for me
There for me

-
Mister Ice (2009)

Mister Ice comes from the nearby wooded hills
Mister Ice is traveling over the world
And he can see wonders and share them with others
Since he can see the world is a beautiful, ideal dream

Men of my world live from the land
Woods are covering the fields
When the moon seems frozen during a fall of snow
Water is pure, slowly falling asleep

I am the white you can see by a winter day
I am the skald telling you about my valley
A cozy bed in a village nestle in fairy lights
I am the first flowers blossoming

And he can see wonders and share them with others
Since he can see the world is a beautiful, ideal dream

-
A Path of Dales (2009)

An enlightened path where to see the mountains
A lot of great heroes were passing by here
A little valley not far from the large swamp
Where I did my quest and where trees are talking to me

Wedding of elements like a simple thing on a path of dales (*2)

Water, tree, soul, magic hills, animals
Is there the right feeling to find the secret key ?
Sun rays at every moment, wise advice felt like harvest
The great theater of beings in my heart

Wedding of elements like a simple thing on a path of dales (*2)

Ô how I thank you my dear for opening my eyes
And if I find the truth I will definetely be yours

-
Simple Eye (2008)

I just can see the hidden face
Of my emotions, in the air
Warmness, the feeling of the trees
When seasons change

We get all by living a simple eye

The moving leaves fall on the ground
Carrying with them a mystic blow
Villages are cold in the veil of fog
Mountains on evenings

You get all by living a simple eye

-
Green Fields (2008)

I was gone for a walk by a soft wind
I'm alone to climb these magic hills
Cafés and inns hidden in the forest
This princess of beauty feels the caress of the sun

Cows and farmers have no idea of the passage of time

Green fields
Leaves and flowers by spring while the rivers are flowing down, quietly

I was gone for a walk by a soft wind
I'm alone to climb these magic hills
Warm inns, pathways and great woods
Surrounding the plain, perfect to escape

-
The Rhinegold (2008)

Walking by the side
Of this long wild river
Lined with spring-like trees
Homes to the bird songs

Feeling the water drops
Carried by the sweetest wind
Is is time for me
To see what has been written

All over the Rhine
Many people are
Searching for the gold

All over the Rhine
The waves are telling us
About the legend of the gold

Following Siegfried's steps
A magic sword by my side
The dragon is sleeping now
In the dark veil of the trees

-
Be Ice (2008)

And my fall in the world
Of ice and woods all around
Shining, my dreams through the day
When I feel such earth-sigh

My feet in ice
My feet in ice

A little piece of man
I saw for a while through the leaves
Working hard the trees
To make it become a secret

A strange wet harmony
Snowed forest, my feet in ice
Flakes falling on my nose
Work of age I am feeling
