The French part from INFUSCOMUS and DARK CARNIVAL

Post by Le Babe » May 3rd, 2009, 21:08

I listened to the MIDI files and the tracks from the CD of Blood today, and I just figured out that in the CD version of Infuscomus (track 5 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svzMK33PMUk) there're children voices, and they actually sing in French ! Never realized it before, and I just thought I was having auditory hallucinations :D .

So, if you're curious about this I'm gonna translate what they say :

Those children are singing a really famous French nursery rhyme.

Here it comes :

Promenons nous dans les bois
pendant que le loup n'y est pas
si le loup y était
il nous mangerait


Which means :

Let's wander within the woods
while there's no wolf around
if a wolf was here
it would eat us



This is not the entire song but this is what you can hear in the Infuscomus track. This song is often used in French horror movies, but I did not expect to hear this in a Blood soundtrack :D .

EDIT : There's the same song at the beginning of the Dark Carnival track.

Absurdly interesting. Could you please provide a sample from one of the French horrors? I'd love to hear the relation.

Man, this is great! I always wanted to know what those children sing and in what language. And it turns out to be French. Good work, Babe! :D

Um, I don't really understand what you want exactly. You want me to give you the name of a film where we hear this ?

Through the several times I played Blood with the CD Soundtrack, the voices of the children always caught my attention, very nice find :) It seems that even today Blood is with new discoveries.

On a side note, were the voices at the end of Unholy Voices supposed to mean anything?

Certainly. Or provide us with a piece of the footage which might feature it.

I'll try to find the movie where it comes from but it will certinly be difficult. Gonna do some research because it's possible this is from Quebec or something.

Besides, I'm not sure it's from a movie.

Perhaps I can find a way to ask the guy who wrote the music for BLood haha.

If I find somehing you'll be informed right here.
