"The Prime of a Still Life" is set in a kitchen.

A man waits for his bride, from sunset to dawn.

Divided in 8 playlets, the songs push forward as night goes by, fluctuating with the moods, and branching out into still lives that will come to with the fantasies of the protagonist : the kitchen furniture sets the scenery of an idealized romance; the items of a lush menu break apart with each sip of beer; fruits and vegetables proclaim themselves oracles in their own right, and dish-washing proves a liberating immersion ritual...

In these reveries that merge painting and cuisine, compositions reach a degree of liveliness that outdoes any idling reality at hand. Jerks in quintuple time, psychedelic flood, or limping children's round dance, form does the twist with content, and both of them will take the lead.

The interludes entwined between the songs are like the glass of spirits between courses. Only dubbed by their number, they allow the songs to settle for a moment while weaving a secret frame in the scullery.
