Description
2nd track of enhanced CD The Unnamed Source. ( see Gallery )
A mantra is a sacred formula used to tune the soul like an instrument. It focuses not only on a word's meaning, but also on the forms and sounds of the word. Inspiration for the three Mantras came from "Funken" ("Sparks"), a collection of short mantra-like German texts by the Swiss writer and painter Joseph Anton Schneiderfranken (Bô Yin Râ). My intention was to transfer the essence of three of those texts into music.
