Deception, lies, magic and ipods

The composer Debussy said:

Art is the greatest deception of all. Art is the deception that creates real emotion, a lie that creates a truth, and when you give yourself over to that deception it becomes magic.

Use this video and Debussy’s quote about art and deception to write/compose something of your own.

Here’s the link to Marco Tempest’s website.
