TUNE VanWyck - As Yours Turns Into Mine
Written to accompany the novel 'Kolja' about a deaf mute boy by Dutch author Arthur Japin and now featuring on the award winning lesbian themed Brazilian web series 'RED'.
Kolja was eight years old and deaf-mute when the brothers Tchaikovsky took him into their care. For eighteen years they lived with him, taking him on their travels through Europe, teaching him how to lipread and speak and eventually even making it possible for him to experience music. When the composer died in 1893 he wrote his last letter to Kolja, now it forms the starting point of this novel. The song was inspired on a fragment in the book where deaf-mute Kolja explains how important the wordless experiences of physical contact are to him:
