Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.
Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.
I hate and I love. Why I do this, perhaps you ask.
I do not know, but I sense that it is happening and I am tortured.
Used in a different context, this could easily be the lyrics for an Emo track or a Britney Spears track penned by a Swede.
I will be creating an Avant-Pop deconstructed karaoke audio and video track based on the poem. The video will feature AMO and ODI, two mascot characters I have created based on my exploration with Kaomoji (Japanese emoticons/ASCII art) and The Cute (Kawaisa). Together with vocalist JC Cassis, I will perform with the track at the Visual Music class show at ISSUE Project Room on April 28.
