Kosmisch Intermezzo

Share Collapse

This is the first animation I upload on Newgrounds.
It's based on a poem with the same name by Ingmar Heytze. It's about the longing for extra-terrestrial life. The poem is recited by a friend of mine Boss John Carpenter.

Translation for those who so desire:

Man 1: What's keeping the universe.
Man 2: It promised.
-Gentlemen's suffering

Now that stargazers unperturbed
stare into the empty space,
voyagers like steel lints
soar through a dark vacuum
and dishes gather white noise,
we know: we are alone.

But those willing to see in eleven dimensions
dream up creatures of crystal-
ears large as cornfields
hear each silent night
their laughter from distant systems
in a glittering universe.

One breathes in, one breathes out,
one waits -

It's a rather poor translation, but it's very difficult to translate poetry. I hear not everyone likes it when something that isn't in English is uploaded here, so that's why I did it anyway.

SourJovis responds:


could you make an english translation?

i understand dutch but not every one does

SourJovis responds:

Yes. The translation should already be in the description.

This is pretty awesome! sort of feels like a video game, I'd love to see some more of your animations. Oh and maybe you should put a translation in the Author Comments so others will understand it.
(I speak Dutch so it's no problem for me :P)
Nice work SourJovis!

SourJovis responds:

Thanks! I've put a translation in the description now. It's very difficult to translate poetry, since it's all about the choice of words, the flow and such. If you translate it isn't the same poem anymore. At least more people will understand what it's about. I'll see if I can do more animations.
