Big Data vs Business Intelligence

 

Introducción

El software de toma de decisiones por autonomasia es el Business Intelligence (B.I.). Apareció hace pocos años el Big Data, que se anunciaba como el futuro de los software de los Business Intelligence, a venido seguido de un marketing que va más allá de los agresivo. El artículo que escribí en Articuloz lo decidí pasar aquí. Más que un artículo sobre el Big Data es  una reflexión sobre el vergonzoso marketing que lo acompaña que es un insulto directo y constante al potencial cliente.

 ——————–

 Desde que apareció el Big Data ha sido un bombardeo constante de artículos, white papers y dossiers cantando las maravillas del Big Data. Promocionados por IBM, Orange, o Microsoft y sus afiliados. Nadie habla ya de Business Intelligence, inteligencia de negocios, software para análisis de datos, del BI tradiciona, sólo del Big Data y de lo imprescindible que resulta para las empresas si quieren crecer. Se habla de la cantidad de datos que procesa, de las múltiples fuentes, de las grandes empresas que lo tienen y hasta se lanzan reprimendas a los gobiernos por no aprovechar el Big Data; no puede haber dirección estratégica sin Big Data. Una empresa sin Big data está condenada a ser ineficiente e improductiva y no será nunca una gran empresa. Sólo les falta gritar: ¡Tu empresa será una piltrafa y se hundirá si no tiene Big Data!.

Estamos presenciando una campaña de marketing muy agresiva y es sorprendente ver cómo este mensaje está calando entre el público. Según un estudio de Interxión realizando a más de 700 empresas de toda Europa desvela que: el 79% de las empresas de entre 500 y 1000 empleados dicen que sus departamentos de IT ven el Big Data como un reto significativo. Lo más llamativo es que la cantidad de empresas de más de 3000 empleados sólo un 55% lo consideran verdaderamente un reto. Es un dato curiosísimo porque es precisamente este segmento es el que debería mostrar más interés por el Big Data. Interxión (Marzo 2013) “Big-Data más allá del Ruido“.

El Big Data más que una herramienta para mejorar los recursos de la empresa se está convirtiendo en un fin en sí mismo y eso es malo.

¿Qué hace un Big Data?

Absorbe y optimiza los datos provenientes de todas las fuentes a tiempo real: desde los ordenadores de la administración, a las aplicaciones de redes sociales, plugins incorporados por los swatch-phones, datos estructurados y no estructurados. Está claro que con la llegada de las redes sociales, las aplicaciones de móviles las empresas tienen la posibilidad de estudiar los gustos y preferencias de sus clientes con mayor exactitud, pero añade una complejidad mucho mayor. Las empresas necesitan buenas herramientas para procesar esa información e interpretarla correctamente.

El Business Intelligence es una herramienta que ayuda a ordenar la información y mostrarla de forma sencilla (unos lo muestran de forma más sencilla que otros, UpperBI, por ejemplo es sencillo). La finalidad es poder tomar decisiones de forma inmediata. Lo que resulta increíble es que casi nadie se haya preguntado si el Big Data es apropiado para todas las empresas, si todas las empresas manejan tantos datos como Google o Amazon: millones de pedidos, billones de “likes”… tan sólo he visto un par de artículos reticentes al respecto.

El Big Data “Requiere técnicos especialistas y algunos considerados raros talentos”… “las organizaciones deben estar preparadas para pagar ese privilegio” afirma John Myers analista de Enterprise Mangement Associates. Lo que significa que el Big Data tiene un precio astronómico y casi es mejor no saberlo pero ya nos da una idea de por qué la propaganda del Big Data es tan agresiva (me niego a llamarlo campaña de marketing), han descubierto la manera de convencer a los ejecutivos de que se gasten cantidades exorbitantes en tiempos de crisis. Reconozco que desde ese punto de vista el terrorífico marketing del Big Data está bien ideado.

Una de las publicaciones internacionales que sigo, Search Data Management , el editor, Jack Vaughan, escribió un artículo sobre el tema “Business decision making must progress in the age of big data”, y me quedé atónita.

Vaughan había ido al MIT Sloan CIO Symposium in Cambridge (Massachussents) allí un catedrático afirmaba que muchos directivos de empresas tomaban decisiones seguidos por “instintos viscerales” y que los ejecutivos debería guiarse por los datos no por sus vísceras. El autor recordaba que en otra conferencia celebrada por la consultora Garther a principio de año un ponente afirmaba que nuestra mente tenía los mismos instintos que nuestros antepasados que les impulsaba atacar o huir cuando una presa o depredador estaba cerca. El ponente dijo claramente que el hombre moderno tiene mucho aún de hombre de las cavernas, que tomamos decisiones por “punto de vista” y que nuestro sentido común aunque importante, nos puede llevar a la catástrofe; esta catástrofe es más probable al tener que manejar grandes volúmenes de datos. El responsable de esta argumentación antropológica resulta ser ni más ni menos que un estadístico-periodista. La revista de Harvard en su número de Octubre del 2012 afirmaba que la profesión de científico de datos era la “más sexy del mundo”, con esas mismas palabras.

Con las afirmaciones de este calibre yo pienso que el concepto de “serio” ha pasado a depender de cuánto dinero tienes para comprarlo o por cuánto lo has vendido, todo según la perspectiva. Realmente es algo que ya descubrí cuando estudié historia pero puede que algunos lo descubran ahora.

Me entristece ver que el nuevo marketing internacional ha pasado de intentar convencer al potencial cliente, a insultarlo.

Reunir datos y organizarlos es fundamental para hacer una predicción analística fiable. Pero siempre habrá factores que se escaparán a los mejores software de análisis de datos, cosas que no pueden prever y por tanto, tampoco nos permite hacer una análisis previo. La suerte, es mucho más que un factor estadístico; acontecimientos políticos imprevistos (la “primavera árabe”, por ejemplo), que obligar a replantear decisiones e inversiones. Sistemas que hasta el momento se consideraban seguros han caído como castillos de naipes. ¿Podría hacerse un análisis de probabilidades del riesgo político de un país?. Por supuesto, ¿hasta qué punto sería fiable?, todo dependería del talento de quien analizara las variables, variables de tipo histórico, sociológico/antropológico, el típico técnico estadístico sería claramente insuficiente. Para que lo entiendan mejor vamos a poner un ejemplo muy común. En unos países gusta su producto y en otros no ¿qué hace usted pues, buscar un código de comportamiento matemático? No, intentará hallar el motivo de porqué ahí gusta su producto y allí no, por qué es del gusto de un mercado y no del otro. Son normalmente cuestiones culturales que permiten intuir si el producto puede gustar o no. Lo que llamarían las lumbreras mencionadas “instintos viscerales”.

Esta tecnología requiere científicos de datos, una rara profesión con escasa oferta y mucha demanda. “las organizaciones deben estar preparadas para pagar ese privilegio” como afirma John Myers analista de Enterprise Mangement Associates.
Una de las reglas del marketing es convencer al cliente de que necesita tu producto, pero una de las reglas de la atención al cliente es darle a éste lo que necesita.

Hace un par de años que estoy en Devianart es un portal para artistas profesionales y de hobby tiene una interfaz más amigable que Behance Network, el cual está especializado en artistas 100% profesionales. Devianart permite crear grupos de gente con la misma afinidad: arte digital, acuarela, dibujantes de retratos de celebridades, dibujantes de animales a lápiz, fotografía urbana, fotografía de plantas, paisajes hechos en acrílico, todo dibujos de carboncillo…

Son una infinidad de grupos de todas las variedades posibles, sin embargo, me he dado cuenta de que el que te acepten un dibujo es más difícil de lo que parece. Todos los grupos tienen sus requisitos: el material, si el retrato o cuerpo entero irán en determinada carpeta, restricciones al desnudo… etc. A veces puedes cumplir todos los requisitos y ¡te rechazan el dibujo sin explicación!.

Sólo me aceptan los dibujos los grupos fans de películas, comics, videojuegos… y los grupos de “todo admitido”.

Me he hartado de eso y he decidido crear mi propio grupo se llama “ONLY PENCILS FANS”

Only Pencils Fans - DeviantART group
Está dedicado a artistas no profesionales de todos los niveles que quieran poner sus dibujos a lápiz. El único requerimiento es que el 60% del dibujo esté hecho a lápiz y claro, hay muchos tipos de lápiz, lápiz de grafito, lápiz acuarelable, lápiz de colores, lápiz de carboncillo… Básicamente son todas las técnicas secas y la más importante de las húmedas: la acuarela.

Aquí os dejo una pequeña muestra de los dibujos que me han sido rechazados en los grupos de arte tradicional y lápiz.

I have been in DeviantArt for two years; it’s a web site for artist professionals and amateurs. Deviantart has a friendlier interface than Behance Network, which is specialized on 100% professional artist. Devianart allows create people groups with the same affinities: digital art, watercolor, celebrities’ portraits, animal’s drawings, city photography, photos of plants, landscape made with acrylics, all crayons drawings….

There are infinitives groups of all kind possible, but nevertheless, I realize they accept a drawing it’s more difficult that it’s seems. All groups have their own requirements: materials, if drawing is a portrait or body will go in a determinate folder, nudity restrictions… etc. My drawing are only accepted on fans groups like films, videogames, and “all admitted groups”.

I’m fed up of this so I have decided my own group called “ONLY PENCILS FANS”

Only Pencils Fans - DeviantART group

It’s dedicated to non-professional artist from all levels. There are only requirement is 60% must be made on pencils and of course there are a lot of kind of pencils: graphic pencils, charcoal pencils, watercolors pencils, colored pencils. Basically all dry techniques are allowed and one of the most important of the water techniques: watercolor.

Here I show the drawings haven’t been accepted on traditional and pencils DeviantART groups.

Fa un paio di anni che sto in Devianart è un portone per artisti professionali e di hobby ha un’interfaccia più amichevole di Behance Network, il quale è specializzato in artisti 100 percento professionisti. Devianart permette di creare gruppi di gente con la stessa affinità: arte digitale, acquarello, disegnatori di ritratti di celebrità, disegnatori di animali a matita, fotografia urbana, fotografa di piante, paesaggi fatti in acrilico, tutto disegni di carboncilloofesionales.

Sono un’infinità di gruppi di tutte le varietà possibili, tuttavia, mi sono reso conto che quello che ti accettino un disegno è più difficile di quello che sembra. Tutti i gruppi hanno i suoi requisiti: il materiale, se il ritratto o corpo intero andranno in determinata cartelletta, restrizioni al nudo etc. puoi compiere a volte tutti i requisiti e ti respingono il disegno senza spiegazione!. Mi accettano solo i disegni i gruppi fans di film, fumetti, videogiochi ed i gruppi di “tutto” ammessi.

Mi sono stufato di quell’e ho deciso di creare il mio proprio gruppo si chiama “ONLY PENCILS FANS”

Only Pencils Fans - DeviantART group

 

È affezionato ad artisti non professionisti di tutti i livelli che vogliano mettere i suoi disegni a matita. L’unica ingiunzione è che il 60 percento del disegno sia fatto a matita e chiaro, ci sono molti tipi di matita, matita di graffito, matita acuarelable, matita di colori, matita di carboncini a matita. Essenzialmente sono tutte le tecniche secche ed il più importante delle umide: l’acquarello. Qui vi lascio una piccola dimostrazione dei disegni che mi sono stato respinti nei gruppi di arte tradizionale e matita.

Yo no había visto la primera película de Star Trek, la del 2009. Fui al cine por insistencia de mi mejor amiga, la cual me dijo que la primera le había gustado mucho y sospechaba que la segunda era mejor. Mi amiga nunca se equivoca así que fui con ella el día del estreno.
Lo primero que me llamó la atención fue este cartel. Un hombre con expresión malvada camina sobre un mundo devastado. No es el típico cartel de Star Trek.

  

 Star Trek into the darkness poster

El hombre en cuestión es el comandante John Harrison acusado de terrorismo y sospechoso de alta traición. El personaje lo interpreta Benedict Cumberbath actor que protagonizaba la última serie que se hecho sobre Sherlock Holmes y producida por la prestigiosa BBC. El personaje que interpreta  Cumberbath en Start Trek está basado en un personaje de la saga original. Por no hacer “spoilers” no diré el nombre, pero sí diré que el cambio es radical tanto en la historia como el aspecto físico de ambos actores. Pasamos de un hombre corpulento, de tez morena, que enseña parte de los pectorales, conquistador de mujeres y mundos en plan “Macho Alpha”, como decía mi amiga; a otro hombre de complexión delgada, tez pálida y tapado hasta el cuello. A juzgar por los aplausos de las chicas que teníamos detrás y por algunos comentarios aparecidos en internet, no menos seductor que el primero y probablemente más.

 El personaje de John Harrison es un seductor frío. La iluminación, el vestuario y su propia pose están diseñados para transmitir frialdad, una falsa frialdad. Su aparente frialdad se viene abajo cuando empieza a hablar. Benedict Cumberbath interpreta a un hombre tremendamente apasionado, iracundo, sacrificado y leal a sus sentimientos. Lo que más me llama la atención es que no oculta sus debilidades ¡es algo muy raro en un villano de película!. Nuestro perverso comandante no obedece al estereotipo típico de “frío y calculador”. Es un hombre calculador pero ¿frío?, ni de lejos.

 harrison star trek

 

John Harrison se siente sólo y está asustado ante la posibilidad de verse verdaderamente sólo y para evitarlo está dispuesto a hacer lo que sea, a soportar lo que fuere. Es interesante ver cómo utiliza sus propias debilidades para atraer la empatía de aquellos que le escuchan para utilizarlos. Es un método realmente efectivo, precisamente porque sus sentimientos son verdaderos. Esto lo consigue hacer creíble la interpretación de Benedict Cumberbath con la ayuda del director J.J. Abrams que realiza muchos primeros planos de los actores. John Harrison es un sentimental, pero un sentimental perverso. Utiliza sus sentimientos para que los demás lo comprendan pero hasta cierto punto. Es un hombre orgulloso, no quiere que lo vean llorar. Reconozco que a mí me embaucó, realmente me dio lástima.

John Harrison es una perfecta máquina de matar, física e intelectualmente, un perfecto instrumento de guerra. Un hombre con sus capacidades puede cambiar el curso de unacontienda, de inclinar la balanza a un lado o a otro. Un hombre como él no puede acabar bien. Se puede ser un genio pero si no se tiene poder en la sociedad en la que se vive siempre será susceptible de ser utilizado por otros, envidiosos de su talento.

 John Harrison es probablemente un hombre educado por y para la violencia no es de extrañar que sea un hombre vengativo. Posee una ira contagiosa, que va contagiando a otros personajes de la película. Resulta peligroso hablar con él, estar con él es peligroso para el alma. Por eso es Benedict Cumberbath la imagen central del cartel de Star Trek y la película se llama “Star Trek into darkness”. Durante una entrevista a una cadena americana, el director, que había censurado la escena de Benedict Cumberbath en la ducha sin aparente explicación sólo pudo contestar:

es la ducha del Diablo-.

Realmente John Harrison actúa como un demonio que contamina las almas de aquellos que lo rodean.

 

 

 

 

  I haven’t seen the Star Trek firth film (2009). I went to the cinema by my best friend’s insistence. She told me the firth film liked very much and she suspected the second one was better. My best friend never makes mistakes so I went to the cinema with her the Premier day (in Spain).

Firth thing that called my attention was this poster. A man with evil face.

 

Star Trek into the darkness poster

The men who are speaking about, is the commander John Harrison accused of terrorism and suspected of high treason. The character is performed by Benedict Cumberbath who is the star in last Sherlock Holmes TV series and it produced by the prestigious BBC. The Star Trek character performed is based on a character from the original saga. So I don’t want to do “spoilers” I won’t to say the name, but I can say the change is radical, as screenplay as both actors look like. Passing from a corpulent man dark-skinned, who shows a part of his chest, conqueror of territories and women as “Alpha Macho”, as my friend says. We pass to another man, thin, pale and wore until neck. Judging by the girls claps listened behind us on the cinema, and some comments read on the Internet, the second version character is not less seductive that the firth one… probably more.

The John Harrison character is a cold seductive, the illumination, the clothes even the way to be sit. Everything has been designed to transmit coldness. His apparently coldness to go into pieces when he starts to speak. Benedict Cumberbath performs an extremely passionate man, irate, sacrifice and loyal to his feelings. That thing call me attention specially, he doesn’t hide his weakness it’s very strange for a film villain! Our perverse command doesn’t obey to the “cold and calculating” role. He’s calculating, yes he is but… cold person? Not at all.

John Harrison feels alone and he’s scared at the possibility to be really alone. For avoit it is willing to do anything to stand all it necessary. It’s interesting how he use his owns weaknesses to attract empathy who are listening him for use them. It’s really effective method exactly because his feelings are true. This can get it believable the Benedict Cumberbath performance with director’s help who makes a lot of face-shots of his actors. John Harrison is a sentimental but a perverse sentimental. He use his own feelings for the others understand him but to a certain extent. He’s haughty, doesn’t want others see him to cry. I admit he gets to dupe me!. Really, I felt so sorry him…! 

John Harrison is a perfect kill-machine he hasn’t any kind of ethics, he’s physically and psychological a perfect was tool. A man with his capabilities can change the war course to include the balance to one side or another. A man like him can be finish well. Someone can be a genius but if isn’t had power into the society where it is been living always by others will be used, envious of his talent.

 John Harrison is probably a man educated by and for the violence, it’s not strange he is a vengeful. He posses an infectious wrath that infects other film characters; it’s dangerous speaking with him, being near to him, is dangerous for the soul. This is the reason because Benedict Cumberbath is the Star Trek’s poster and the film it calls “Star Trek into darkness”. Making an interview to the U.S. channel, the film director, that he had censured a Beneditc scene taking the shower without apparently reason, he only could say: – It’s the evil shower-. Actually John Harrison acts like a demon corrupting the people’s souls he has around.

Io non avevo visto il primo film di Star Trek, quella di quello2009. Andai al cinema per insistenza della mia migliore amica, la quale mi disse che la prima gli era piaciuta molto e sospettava che il secondo era migliore. La mia amica non si sbaglia mai cosicché fui con lei il giorno dell’esordio. 
La cosa prima che mi chiamò l’attenzione fu questo cartello. Un uomo con espressione malvagia cammina su un mondo devastato. Non è il tipico cartello di Star Trek.

 

Star Trek into the darkness poster

L’uomo in questione è il comandante John Harrison accusato di terrorismo e sospetto di alto tradimento. Il personaggio l’interpreta Benedict Cumberbath attore che era protagonista dell’ultima serie che Lei fatto su Sherlock Holmes e prodotta per la prestigioso BBC. Il personaggio che interpreta Cumberbath in Start Trek è basato in un personaggio della saga originale. Per non fare “spoilers” non dirò il nome, ma sì dirò che il cambiamento è radicale tanto nella storia come l’aspetto fisico di entrambi gli attori. Passiamo di un uomo corpulento, di carnagione bruna, che insegna parte dei pettorale, conquistatore di donne e mondi in piano “Maschio Alpha”, come diceva la mia amica; ad un altro uomo di costituzione magra, carnagione pallida e coperto fino al collo. A giudicare dagli applausi delle ragazze che avevamo dietro e per alcuni commenti apparsi in internet, non meno seducente del primo e probabilmente più.

Il personaggio di John Harrison è un seduttore freddo. L’illuminazione, il vestiario e la sua propria posa sono progettate per trasmettere freddezza, una falsa freddezza. La sua apparente freddezza si viene sotto quando incomincia a parlare. Benedict Cumberbath interpreta tremendamente un uomo appassionato, iracondo, sacrificato e leale ai suoi sentimenti. Quello che più chiamami l’attenzione è che non occultare le sue debolezze è qualcosa di molto raro in un villano di film!. Nostro perverso maggiore non ubbidisce allo stereotipo tipico di “freddo e calcolatore.” È un uomo calcolatore ma friggo?, né da lontano.

 harrison star trek

John Harrison si sente solo e è spaventato davanti alla possibilità di verta davvero solo e per evitarlo è disposto a fare quello che sia, a sopportare quello che fuere. È interessante vedere come utilizza le sue proprie debolezze per attrarre l’empatia di quelli quale l’ascoltano per utilizzarli. È un metodo realmente effettivo, precisamente perché i suoi sentimenti sono veri. Questo l’ottiene fare credibile l’interpretazione di Benedict Cumberbath con l’aiuto del direttivo J.J. Abrams che realizza molti primi piani degli attori. John Harrison è un sentimentale, ma un sentimentale perverso. Utilizza i suoi sentimenti affinché gli altri lo comprendano ma fino ad un certo punto. È un uomo orgoglioso, non vuole che lo vedano piangere. Riconosco che a me mi imbrogliò, realmente mi diede pena.

John Harrison è una perfetta macchina di ammazzare, fisica ed intellettualmente, un perfetto strumento di guerra. Un uomo con le sue capacità può cambiare il corso di unacontienda, di inclinare la bilancia ad un lato o un altro. Un uomo come egli non può finire bene. Si può essere un genio ma se non si tiene potere nella società nella quale si vive sarà sempre suscettibile di essere utilizzato per altri, invidiosi del suo talento.

John Harrison è probabilmente un uomo educato per e per la violenza non è di rimpiangere che sia un uomo vendicativo. Possiede un’ira contagiosa che continua a contagiare ad altri personaggi del film. Risulta pericoloso parlare con lui, stare con lui è pericoloso per l’anima. Per quel motivo è Benedict Cumberbath l’immagine centrale del cartello di Star Trek ed il film si chiama “Star Trek into darkness.” Per un’intervista ad una catena americana, il direttore, che aveva censurato la scena di Benedict Cumberbath nella doccia senza apparente spiegazione potè rispondere solo:

– è la doccia del Diavolo -.

John Harrison agisce realmente come un demonio che inquina le anime di quelli quali lo circondano.

 

 

 

 

Si hay que elegir un CD como el más raro de cuantos hay en los Final Fantasy (y eso que los hay raros), este CD supera a todos.

Casi todos los temas comienzan con un narrador, y luego van sonando melodías a cada cual más extraña. Son sólo siete temas pero en cada uno contiene músicas muy diferentes. No hay temas en orquesta.

Pese a no ser muy conocido la crítica en general lo tiene muy bien considerado (yo incluida), sólo le echan en cara tener un narrador demasiado largo pero para el que está aprendiendo inglés es perfecto.

Es uno de mis discos favoritos. En opinión mía y de un colaborador es uno de los mejores de la saga pero no creo que haya unanimidad en ese tema.

Por cierto en el libreto dice que la solista femenina es nada más y nada menos que Dido

The Evil power of underworld

The Evil power of the underworld

One day, a sudden, massive earthquake struck, shaking the bowels of the earth into complete darkness. Four magic crystals, which had been maintaining the earth’s balance up until then, were lost, and buried deep beneath the earth. The evil elements of the earth, which had been kept down until then, came to life, and humanity was thrown into a living hell on earth.

Narrador 2 – Followind the wind

Following the Wind

The windy city, Ur. The damage from the earthquake that occurred here was relatively slight. Most of the people were convinced that the wind crystal must be living in the underworld and protecting them…and they were right. One day the wind crystal arose from the underworld and chose four youths to find the remaining three crystals that would save the world. Off on their journey, the youths ventured forth; and, as a soft breeze whistled gently through the trees, the group of four strained their ears to hear hopes, dreams, desires. The wind spoke of all, and the four valiant youths listened sympathetically to the wind, believing that in return, the wind crystal would shower them with light again.

Narrator 3 – Montage

For the four valiant youths, this mission was a novel experience, and each of them was overflowing with curiosity. Everything they saw appeared extraordinary, yet they were completely void of fear. Thoughts of ghosts and evil powers didn’t even enter their minds. They felt as if they could journey on like this forever, traveling to the outer reaches of the universe.

Roaming Sheep

Esta también es tema de Dido.

Lyrics Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never known

Listen to the wind

Until you can hear the sign

Roaming sheep the front of the gate

That’s closed so tight

Take a rest on the earth

Until you can find the key

Roaming sheep in search of the people

Full of love

Bathe yourself in the water

Until your mind’s soothed again

Roaming sheep in front of the deep

And dreamless sleep

Here you’re by the fire

Able to warm your heart

Each and every moment

Oh, as time goes by

All in this world has to change

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never known

Better take your breath

Until you can hear the sign

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never seen

Better watch your step

Until you can find the key

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You may never reach

Better love yourself

Tomorrow’s another day

Therir Spiritual Leader

Their Spiritual Leader

Sometimes the four valiant youths thought they heard the wind calling softly to them…and they really did. When the four youths were feeling depressed and at a loss for where to turn next, the wind’s voice encouraged them to keep trying. When they were lost and didn’t know which way to turn, the wind gently led them in the right direction. While the four youths suspected the wind was helping them, little did they know that the great Doga was also watching over them.

 

The breeze es el segundo tema vocal del Eternal Spirits of Wind le leído que está cantado por “Dido

Es curiosa la letra de The Breeze, es una enorme metáfora. La primera vez que leí la letra me pareció que la metáfora es la de la muerte. Yo supongo que irá con el contexto del juego (no lo conozco), pero si os fijais bien podría ser esa la interpretación.The breezeAre we strangers in this place?

Looking for a place unknown?

We’re just leaning on the breeze…

Saying not to give it up…

Can we find the truth behind us,

When the long journey ends?Are we wrapped in mysteries?

Walking down the winding roads?

Can we find the reason why we are

In this world of trials?Here comes the breeze, that’s whispering in peace

So full of lights, shining in colors

Don’t be afraid, just keep on trying in your way

And you will see how all is sight…Are we strangers in this place?

Reaching out for dreams unknown?

Now we feel our minds are flying high

In this world of libertyHere comes the breeze that’s whispering again

So full of lights shining in colors

Listen to me, just keep on trying in your way

Get the courage to open the door and soon you’ll be free…

Narrator 5 – Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow (narration)

In any legend, there are a variety of contrasting emotions: love and hate, courage and fear, joy and pain. The youths, in search of the remaining crystals, also experienced these opposing sentiments. Yet while their journey read like any story of old, the ending was very different; for the youths, rather than finding the crystals and saving the world, found themselves utterly hopeless.

Narrador 6 – Rebirth

Es el narrador del séptimo tema porque el sexto no tiene narrador

Rebirth (narration)

It is when one thinks one knows everything there is to know about the earth that God snarls in the face of such fools. In this world, God will show only those overflowing with curiosity and expectations a small portion of Her kingdom. Those select few will thus eventually be able to find the light at the end of their tunnel–or, in this case, the light that will save the world, thus reminding them just how divine God really is.

 

 

If it is necessary to choose a CD as the most strange  (the competence is hard) the prize would win it this one.

Almost all the topics begin with a narrator, and then melodies are sounding to everyone stranger. They are only seven topics but in each one it(he,she) contains musical very different. There are no topics in orchestra.

In spite of the critique not being very known in general it has it very well considered (I included), only they throw  it in face to have a too long narrator but for the one that is learning English it is perfect.

It is one of my favorite discs. In my opinion and of a collaborator it is one of the best of the saga but I do not believe that there is unanimity in this topic.

Certainly in the libretto says that the feminine soloist is at all more and nothing less than Dido!

You may never reach

Better love yourself

Tomorrow’s another day

Their Spiritual Leader

Sometimes the four valiant youths thought they heard the wind calling softly to them…and they really did. When the four youths were feeling depressed and at a loss for where to turn next, the wind’s voice encouraged them to keep trying. When they were lost and didn’t know which way to turn, the wind gently led them in the right direction. While the four youths suspected the wind was helping them, little did they know that the great Doga was also watching over them.

The breeze is the second vocal theme from  Eternal Spirits of Wind singing by Dido”

Es curiosa la letra de The Breeze, es una enorme metáfora. La primera vez que leí la letra me pareció que la metáfora es la de la muerte. Yo supongo que irá con el contexto del juego (no lo conozco), pero si os fijais bien podría ser esa la interpretación.The breezeAre we strangers in this place?

Looking for a place unknown?

We’re just leaning on the breeze…

Saying not to give it up…

Can we find the truth behind us,

When the long journey ends?Are we wrapped in mysteries?

Walking down the winding roads?

Can we find the reason why we are

In this world of trials?Here comes the breeze, that’s whispering in peace

So full of lights, shining in colors

Don’t be afraid, just keep on trying in your way

And you will see how all is sight…Are we strangers in this place?

Reaching out for dreams unknown?

Now we feel our minds are flying high

In this world of libertyHere comes the breeze that’s whispering again

So full of lights shining in colors

Listen to me, just keep on trying in your way

Get the courage to open the door and soon you’ll be free…

Narrator 5 – Ebb and Flow

Ebb and Flow (narration)

In any legend, there are a variety of contrasting emotions: love and hate, courage and fear, joy and pain. The youths, in search of the remaining crystals, also experienced these opposing sentiments. Yet while their journey read like any story of old, the ending was very different; for the youths, rather than finding the crystals and saving the world, found themselves utterly hopeless.

Narrador 6 – Rebirth

It is the narrator from seventh theme because the sixth hasen’t got.

Rebirth (narration)

It is when one thinks one knows everything there is to know about the earth that God snarls in the face of such fools. In this world, God will show only those overflowing with curiosity and expectations a small portion of Her kingdom. Those select few will thus eventually be able to find the light at the end of their tunnel–or, in this case, the light that will save the world, thus reminding them just how divine God really is.

 Se bisogna scegliere un CD come il più raro di quanti è nei Finali Fantasy, e quello che ci li sono rari, questo CD supera tutti.

Quasi tutti i temi cominciano con un narratore, e dopo continuano a suonare melodie ad ognuno più strano. Sono solo sette temi ma in ognuno contiene musiche molto differenti. Non ci sono temi in orchestra.

A dispetto di non essere molto conosciuto la critica in generale l’ha molto bene considerato, io inclusa, gli rinfacciano solo avere molto un narratore troppo ma per il che sta imparando inglese è perfetto.

È uno dei miei dischi favoriti. Nella mia opinione e di un collaboratore è uno dei migliori della saga ma non credo che ci sia unanimità in quello tema.

Per certo nel libretto dice che la solista femminile è nient’altra e niente meno che Dido.

The Evil power of underworld

The Evil power of the underworld

One day, a sudden, massive earthquake struck, shaking the bowels of the earth into complete darkness. Four magic crystals, which had been maintaining the earth’s balance up until then, were lost, and buried deep beneath the earth. The evil elements of the earth, which had been kept down until then, came to life, and humanity was thrown into a living hell on earth.

Narrador 2 – Followind the wind

Following the Wind

The windy city, Ur. The damage from the earthquake that occurred here was relatively slight. Most of the people were convinced that the wind crystal must be living in the underworld and protecting them…and they were right. One day the wind crystal arose from the underworld and chose four youths to find the remaining three crystals that would save the world. Off on their journey, the youths ventured forth; and, as a soft breeze whistled gently through the trees, the group of four strained their ears to hear hopes, dreams, desires. The wind spoke of all, and the four valiant youths listened sympathetically to the wind, believing that in return, the wind crystal would shower them with light again.

Narrator 3 – Montage

Montage

For the four valiant youths, this mission was a novel experience, and each of them was overflowing with curiosity. Everything they saw appeared extraordinary, yet they were completely void of fear. Thoughts of ghosts and evil powers didn’t even enter their minds. They felt as if they could journey on like this forever, traveling to the outer reaches of the universe.

Roaming Sheep

Anche questo è di Dido.

Lyrics Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never known

Listen to the wind

Until you can hear the sign

Roaming sheep the front of the gate

That’s closed so tight

Take a rest on the earth

Until you can find the key

Roaming sheep in search of the people

Full of love

Bathe yourself in the water

Until your mind’s soothed again

Roaming sheep in front of the deep

And dreamless sleep

Here you’re by the fire

Able to warm your heart

Each and every moment

Oh, as time goes by

All in this world has to change

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never known

Better take your breath

Until you can hear the sign

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You’ve never seen

Better watch your step

Until you can find the key

Roaming sheep in search of the place

You may never reach

Better love yourself

Tomorrow’s another day

The breeze è la seconda tema vocale dell’Eterno Spirits of Wind letto gli che è cantato per “Didone”

È curiosa la lettera di The Breeze, è un’enorme metafora. La prima volta che lessi la lettera mi sembrò che la metafora sia quella della morte. Io suppongo che andrà col contesto del gioco, non lo conosco, ma se vi fissate bene potrebbe essere quello l’interpretazione. The breeze Ari we strangers in this place?

Looking for a place unknown?

We’re just leaning on the breeze…

Saying not to give it up…

Can we find the truth behind us,

When the long journey ends?Are we wrapped in mysteries?

Walking down the winding roads?

Can we find the reason why we are

In this world of trials?Here comes the breeze, that’s whispering in peace

So full of lights, shining in colors

Don’t be afraid, just keep on trying in your way

And you will see how all is sight…Are we strangers in this place?

Reaching out for dreams unknown?

Now we feel our minds are flying high

In this world of libertyHere comes the breeze that’s whispering again

So full of lights shining in colors

Listen to me, just keep on trying in your way

Get the courage to open the door and soon you’ll be free…
