About the project

It has three parts

• a music video

• a documentary about the making of the video

• a world premiere concert on November 5, 2016 in the Žofín Palace in Prague How did it begin.

The project is based around a music video - set to a Villonesque ballad by Michal Horáček called "Vláda dušiček", which we made independently in a Czech version.

The idea of recording a video was given to the music composer Zdenek "Berry" Beran by the Chicago-based cameraman of Czech origin, Vladimir Van Maule, who suggested making a poetic film rendering of the song after listening to a first demo. Subsequently, after a very positive international response to the completed Czech version of the video, we decided to try this year and implement an international version in English and reach out to collaborate with several named artists...

This initially foolish enthusiastic dream, in which, apart from the artists, only a few believed, has now become a reality, and the project is nearing completion, with the participation of outstanding personalities in the world music scene!

What is our goal?

With the international musical project THE PARLIAMENT OF SOULS we hope to remind all who hear and see it that we should always be grateful for the gift of the departed, not only to our own ancestors, but also the important personalities of society.

All artists who participate in honour of the memory of Václav Havel. Our project intends to be a worthy contribution to honoring his memory. We would like to commemorate the values Václav Havel had always espoused, which still have a vital role to play both in Czech society and around the world.

We believe these are good reasons why you should participate in this beautiful project.

Thank you for your support.

Details

The project has three parts:

1. The recording of a new audio tracks for the video "The Parliament of Souls", which was created based on a Villonesque ballad by Michal Horáček, set to music by composer Zdeněk "Berry" Beran, sung by František Segrado and with subsequent image processing by the film director Mikoláš Orlický. The video stars Ivana Chýlková and, dancing, Zuzana Šimáková, soloist of the National Theatre Ballet. The music video was shot on location at an old cemetery in Prague where Václav Havel’s ancestors have been buried since the 18 th century. VIZE 97, The Dagmar and Václav Havel Foundation, is the official patron of the video. Our team is made up of people who either knew Václav Havel in person, or who feel a deep affinity to and respect for him. This gives us all a great motivation and determination to complete the project.

The song "The Parliament Of Souls" was set for six performers. Each of them recorded one of the four parts in English - some in the form of duets, the last part sung in English in parallel to a recitation of the French version of the text. The English and French texts were translated by Mícheál Úa Séaghdha, and Zuzana Tomanová (long-time translator and interpreter to Václav Havel) in cooperation with Frederique Smetana.

Vocal parts were recorded by Joe Lynn Turner (lDeep Purple, Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen etc.), Celeste Buckingham, Ivan Král (U2, Patti Smith Gorup, David Bowie, Iggy Pop) and Justin Lavash. Chantal Poullain and Juwana Jenkins will record their parts in October 2016. Subsequently, the recording will be finished in post-production in London's legendary Abbey Road studios.

2. A documentary film about the creation and filming of the project, called "In Love We Trust" directed by Janek Cingroš. Artists involved in the project will appear in the documentary, asked to give their world view and define their moral values, values that this world cannot ignore.

3. The premiere of the video & the documentary film, which will be held in Prague's Žofín Palace on November 5, 2016, starting 19 pm. Part of the event will be concert performances of the artists:
