Quick Overview

In Sanskrit, the word Vrishti means "rain" and in the Hindu context, the work evokes (divine) light falling on the world like rain, the influx of luminous thoughts. Vrishti is a manifestation of superior consciousness in our life, a spiritual fullness. This piece is based on a mantra to Siva I once heard in Jaisalmer (Rajasthan) in July 2008. M. Rupendra Gopa Ji allowed me to record his vocal performance. The in-depth study of this mantra revealed important factors (temporality, rhymicity, intonation, articulation, agogics) that influenced my own compositioin, showing through the surface as a far-off echo in filigree or as a faint trace like a thermal imprint or a fossil light. For the performer, the most tangible traces of this palimpsest-like process are found in the constant change between binary and ternary meters, and in the 27-strophe structure that follows the original design and proportions of the original mantra. --Bertrand Dubedout
