En Memoria de David Bowie (1947 – 2016)

Share Button

David Bowie me acompaño toda mi vida.
Creativo, ingenioso, talentoso, adelantado a su época, capaz de generar mundos.
Extraño (¿quién no es?).
Experto en diseñar universos más allá del nuestro.
Bowie. Grande y querido Bowie.

En 1969, yo vivía en Concepción. La lluvia era eterna y mi padre conecto una antena extrema en mi pieza buhardilla, para que yo pudiera escuchar radios argentinas que tocaban mejor música que las rancheras eternas y Pollo Fuentes o Cecilia. Eso me cambio la vida!! Descubrí a Led zepellin, A Emerson, Lake and Palmer, a muchos que me volaron la cabeza y… También, descubrí a Bowie.
Bowie era distinto a todo lo que había escuchado hasta entonces y lo que seguí escuchando en toda mi vida.
Era un personaje, era Ziggy Stardust.
El era , es y será polvo de estrellas.
En 1969. El hombre llegó a la luna….y Bowie, cantaba y decía esto : ( Mas o menos)

Hombre de las estrellas

No sabía que hora era y había poca luz
Me apoyé en mi radio (apoyo en sentido psicológico)
Algún tipo estaba tocando rock and roll con un montón de sentimientos
Entonces, el sonido alto pareció desvanecerse
Volvió como una voz lenta en forma de onda
No era ningún D.J. aquello era una nebulosa cósmica.

Hay un starman (hombre de las estrellas) esperando en el cielo
Le gustaría venir y encontrarse con nosotros
Pero cree que nos haría volar (en el sentido de destruír) las mentes

Hay un starman esperando en el cielo
Nos dijo que no las haría volar
Porque sabe que es todo lo que vale la pena

Él me dijo: deja a los niños perderla (la mente)
Deja a los niños usarla (la mente)
Deja a los niños boggie (bailar)

Tuve que telefonear a alguien, así que te escogí a ti

Ei! Esto es tan (estupendo), lo oíste tú también!
Enciende la tele, quizá podamos pillarlo en el canal 2
Mira por tu ventana, puedo ver su luz
Si nosotros podemos brillar, quizá pueda aterrizar esta noche
No se lo digas a papá o nos encerrará en el miedo

Escuchar a Bowie fue abrirse a otros mundos, a creer más allá. A entender que los límites se podían correr.
Bowie, me enseñó eso y mucho más.
Bowie fue un personaje del arte, de la cultura, fue un artista integral.
Toda mi vida ha estado marcada por la música y el cine. Mi vida tiene imágenes y música
Y tiene a Bowie.
Bowie icónico, adelantado, visualmente extremo.
Un personaje extraterrestre que viene a amar y llenarnos de letras y música, más allá.
Su imagen andrógina, nos grita en la cara que los seres humanos somos libres de ser lo que queramos ser…. Ser polvo de estrellas. Por siempre.
En 1975, escribió con John Lennon “Fame”
Y nunca más paró … Hasta hoy.
Hoy se detuvo. Dejó de estar con nosotros. Pero como es polvo de estrellas, estará por siempre.
Bowie, estudió arte. Y teatro vanguardista. Lo que concretó no solo en su escenario musical, Lo vimos también, llenar la pantalla gigante.
1976 actuó en el rol de Thomas Jerome Newton (un extraterrestre) en “El hombre que vino de las estrellas”, que viene a la tierra en busca de agua y se encuentra el amor en una jovencita sencilla y dulce.
1978 Just a Gigolo Con Marlene Dietrich
En los años 20 después de la guerra. El personaje de Bowie estuvo meses en coma. Vuelve y el mundo cambió. La aristocracia a la pertenecía ya no existe y debe sobrevivir. Por lo que descubre que dedicarse a Gigolo puede ser fácil y rentable.
En el Ansia (1983) Bowie actuó como un vampiro. Con Catherine Denueve y Susan Sarandon.
El mismo año hizo un Cameo en Yellowbear de los Monthy Python.
En 1985 se negó a hacer un villano de Bond. ( habría sido un villano genial!)
En 1986 ( lo recuerdo con Claridad) Laberinto. Gran película y la imagen de Bowie iluminando la pantalla .
En 1988 hizo a Poncio Pilatos En La última tentación de Cristo de Martin Scorsese

pilate

1991 el incidente Linguinni con Roxanna Arquette.
También algunas participaciones en programas y series de televisión, como por ej su aparición como el mismo en Zoolander 2000.
Lo vimos en Pantalla grande también interpretando a NiKola Testla en “ The Prestige” de Nolan junto a Christian Bale y Hugh Jackman 2006.
Su sola presencia, siempre fue capaz de llenar la pantalla.
David Bowie, fue mucho más que un transgresor, fue un adelantado a su época. Nos amplio el mundo a otros mundos. Más allá de nuestros límites. Su imagen andrógina, nos sitúa más allá de los límites de lo físico.
Fue un habitante universal.
Sus letras siempre fueron, profundas, filosóficas, con influencias literarias y poéticas.
Siempre corrió los límites , más allá.
Su sexualidad más allá de todo.
Su matrimonio con Imán, una de las mujeres más hermosas del mundo. Que hoy se ha convertido en la belleza viuda y en la imagen de la profunda tristeza de todos los que amamos a Bowie y tuvimos la suerte de ser sus contemporáneos.
Su álbum “The Rise” of Ziggy Stardust and “The Spider of Mars”, es una influencia muy clara en la historia de la música. Hay un antes y un después de ese disco.
Vimos con lágrimas en los ojos La maravilla de película que es “El mundo acuático de Steve Zissou” de Wes Anderson. Y vimos a Seu George cantando “The Spiders of Mars”, en una noche estrellada en la cubierta del submarino barco de Zzisu.
Vimos a Matt Damon Flotando en el espacio Mientras escuchábamos a Bowie cantar “Starman” , en el mejor momento de “The Martian”.
Escuchamos a Nirvana reversionar “The man who sold the Word”
Bowie no ha muerto. Bowie ha sido es y será Polvo de estrellas.
