EYVIND KANG - ATHLANTIS (2007)


EYVIND KANG - ATHLANTIS
Ipecac Recordings


'Athlantis' is something like an oratorio, with the incredible singers Mike Patton and Jessika Kenney on the main parts. Inspired by Renaissance era literature and philosophy, 'Athlantis' was a chance for Eyvind Kang to interact with one of his favourites Giordano Bruno and his book 'Cantus Circaeus'. He studied and set the text, combining obscure poems from Bishop Marbode of Rennes, and some lines from the Hungarian epic 'Planctus Destructionis', he did the ground work and created the musical space. All of the singers, choir and soloists, came in and inhabited it and made it their own.

Alas, the link is now dead. Any chance of a re-up? I saw Eyvind Kang recently with Laurie Anderson and a few years back with Bill Frisell - I have boots of the concerts here http://philsbootlegs.blogspot.com/search/label/Eyvind%20Kang

He also did some of the arrangements on Sunn O)))'s Monoliths & Dimensions (they are on my blog too) so would be very interested to hear more of him.
