Bojan Vuletic composed these works based on lines from Baudelaire's "Les fleurs du mal", a remarkable set of songs sung by Vera Westera over the excellent musicianship of Zeena Parkins on harp, Nate Wooley on trumpet, and Bojan Vuletic handling the odd instrument.

sample the album:
"The inital idea to this project is to be found in Baudelaire's lines taken from 'Les fleurs du mal', where a moment and eternity are connected through beauty. The volatileness of the instant, that may never be held, triggers within its infinitely small fragment of time the violent about-turn to distance, to memory and loss. And yet the human being longs for this very moment of beauty, both in love and art.
In every art discipline, where time plays a significant role, specific forms of improvisation have developed, that allow us to feel and live this special momentary experience. Sound and music with its immaterial energy manifesting and travelling through soundwaves along the time axis belong to the most fleeting sort of such experiences, as the sound never remains like other, material art pieces and recordings are only documents of this experience.
Baudelaire viewed beauty as a hybrid: eternal and alterable, timeless and momentary, conditional and unconditional. "Beauty is made out of an eternal, unchangeable element, whose quantity is very hard to determine and out of a relative, conditional element, that [...] is assigned by a time period, a fashion, the intellectual life and passion." 'Fugitive Beaute' is the attempt to connect volatileness and constancy, a maybe impossible but necessary way, a passage."-Ignoring Gravity Music
