Cd_cover La_Nuit_et_le_Jour-320

1997 – first production, 2 compositions in 2 parts each, for two viols and harmonic singing
recorded in a large beer cellar underground on 13th of December 1996. I used the tuning desscribed by Plato in the Timaeus, which my teacher Keshavram Iengar in Mysore recognized later as „our natural scale“

The Bridge – two viols and harmonic singing

Part 1 – The Source


Exposing the Dorian mode as described in the Timaeus, it is called today Phrygian or Deuterus, I used elements of maqam Kurd and raga Bhairavi.


Part 2 – The Bridge

„On Me all things are strung like beaded pearls“ Bhagavad Gita VII, 7.
The singing is based on one single note from which various harmonics arise. It is called „throat singing“ in East Europe. As taught me my Mongol teacher, one should not force on the voice, I did not either intend to sound like some new-age shaman.


The Night – two viols

Part 1 – Quidam


Improvisation on „Le Juif Errant“, a traditional song. Popular memory can be a good carrier.


Part 2 – Night

Dedicated to St Dismas. The development oft he idea of resignation, on the Ionian mode, the actual inversion oft he Timaeus scale. I modulate tot he more orthodox Gregorian Tetrardus (a minor seventh).
