DARGE, MONIEK - SOUNDS OF SACRED PLACES (CD)


"In most ethnic cultures, sacred places serve an important social function. The qualities, typical of these places, explain to western people the magic magnetism of these holy grounds. During our international Logos Duo concert tours we have had the opportunity to visit quite a few of these places. Uluru, the Shadowgiving Mountain of the Aborigines, better known under its western name of Ayers Rock (Australia), impressed us more than any other. The presence of water and an enormous monolith in the midst of the vast desert plain is given as an explanation for its magical appeal. Sounds of Sacred Places attempts to transform the listener into a living witness of the sounds of similar places, not far away in any specific ethnic culture, but in Flanders." (M. Darge, 1987) "New 2011 edition of this cornerstone sound art collection, originally published in 1987 on LP by Igloo. Sounds of Sacred Places arrives in a high gloss 4-panel digipak with accompanying 16 page booklet of photos and notes. Remastered from the original tapes by Moniek Darge at the Logos Foundation, Gent. Edition of 500." (label info)
