(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 word doesn’t get the chance to be employed very often. Well, not around me that is. Until now.

The underlying idea of the song is that of the benefit of sharing perspectives, for instance to get rid of old oldness or discover new newness.

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.

For once, the lyrics came about almost effortlessly :

1st View
Imagine our paths / As leading up a hill
Through the many stories / Directed by our will

Minuscule points in time / Observers raising high
Unique by the picture / Reflected in our eye

2nd View
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

1st 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

3rd View
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

4th View
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

2nd 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
