Manto III, ‘pour une altiste chanteuse’, Scelsi

April 28, 2019

I finally made this recording from back in 2008 into a video, using some excerpts from Metallic Pastels by Georgine van Assche (‘Aufklährung’, ‘La Voyante’, ‘From the other side of the Toomb’, ‘Shamanismus’)

For “Manto 3, Pour une altiste chanteuse” Scelsi added the text of the Sybil, oracle of Delphi, and adds: “The viola player (necessarily female) must also sing” .
The oracle speaks in an un-known language, so it’s up to the listener to ‘understand’ what she is seeing, and telling during her vision ….

Recorded at ‘Begijnhofkerk Sint-Truiden’ (Belgium) in 2008 by Daniel Léon (Igloo recordings) for Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles (Mons, Belgium)
