View Full Version : Brise live performance ^^

Everything I watch Malice Mizer's live performance of Brise I crack up. There's so many good parts (the Kozi/Mana dance), Kami flashing the rest an "I feel so left out" stare, etc etc...but my absolute favorite has to be when Mana toddles up to Gackt and hugs him around the middle and the crowd just like triples in excitement. It's hilarious...no matter what country, fans just love those yaoi moments ^^
My little niece loves the hug, too. >^_^<
I love when Mana comes up by Kami and hits a cymbal, and Kami just like stares at him: 'excuse me, -I'm- actually playing my instrument here...'
Yeah, when I think of them, that song live is like their height for me, it's just immortal...it's awesome when you can tell they're having fun.
Lilli's trying to get us to learn the Je Te Veux dance for Cyberland fun at Otakon, but I wish we could somehow re-enact parts of Brise...cuz I can't dance but I can throw around toys and wander around.

what amazes me is that I heard the song was actually quite depressing (the lyrics I mean). I could be misinformed of course - but I just like to think of the contrast.
I especially love it when Gackt GRABS for Mana as Mana leaves after the hug. I was like, "woah - Gackt is coping a feel!" ^^;
But that could be just the slash zombie in me...
Yeah..when the smell of asphalt is absent, I get depressed, too....
Seriously though, I believe you are correct about the lyrics. Brise = Break.
Based on the translations my friends have done (and confirmed by a few similarily done ones out there on the internet...wherever they went) we're thinking the presentation/music of the song is supposed to be a purposeful confusion and not seem to match the words at first, like a paradox or a koan. It's supposed to pull you in both directions. The lyrics talk about pressing inward in a small blank or white room while at the same time looking out into an endless night sky. (Heh...kinda like most of Gackt's songs, once you think about it, but still...)
Personally, I really enjoy cute, happy-sounding songs on the surface that are secretly darker or insane. Reminds me of me. ^_-
Hehe...the patented Gackt Grab.. He wasn't through with him. XD

This should go in Music Chat. ^_^;
But yes, I loved Brise in the merveilles live.. I still love having upbeat randomness among the rest of Malice Mizer's songs. Gackt shaking his butt and hugging Mana and Mana playing Kami's drums.. Yes.
...Yeah...it should...except it'll get ignored or disrespected there. I was gonna say that before, but I wanted to reply instead. ^_^*
Hey! Idea: maybe we can get a sub-forum in the music forum? Like the cosplay.com picnic is under the general chat...? So instead of being moved and lost completely...

I like that idea. Lots of people confuse the J-rock/J-pop forum for music discussion. Maybe because it lacks "Costumes" in the title like the others. That'd be good, too. :p
I suggested the inclusion of the word 'costume' in the description twice already. Or some kind of disclaimer like the FF sub-forum has. Tho I seem to be ignored. -_-*But it'd really help cut down on threads that need to get moved.

That would really be helpful, because I too have been ignored by all the DDR people (no offense fellow people). Even just a general jrock discussion forum would be nice, just to differentiate it from music (lol) and general discussion.

Wow, all that?? XD I need to see this. It's on the Merveilles DVD right?
06-11-2003, 11:32 PM
Yes it is, and all fun times included ^^

The VHS too. :p But I know you're just referring to the merveilles concert video. Yes. That.
