Trolldans once again opens its musical tome of fairy tales, this time featuring the gifted sound sculptor Edanticonf. In his chapter of the Trolldans volume, Edanticonf presents us with The Three Crying Fairies. It is a tale in four parts of desire and tears – as every good story should be. The First Fairy tells us about a lake in the deep woods where a young princess called Tuvstarr once lost her gold heart. No creature of the forest could convince the princess to let it go, and so she stayed there by the black lake until she turned into a beautiful flower. The Second Fairy tells us how the princess, before she lost her precious necklace, would ride like the wind through the forest on the back a grand elk. The princess loved the thrill and the elk loved the princess. Vril steps in and actually let’s us hear the noble elk’s heart racing from both the pace and his devotion to Tuvstarr. The Third Fairy ends Endanticonf’s beautiful but melancholy tale with a glimmer of hope: By the darkest of lakes, the loveliest flowers grow. The End.
