*300 copies limited edition* New meta-poem from multilingual and polysonic voice artist Maja Jantar, this LP delivers two magnificent subtle and sensorial haunting pieces of free tonal modulations, exploring the voice as a tool to create musical textures shifting from free layered tones and vivid harmonics to free sound poetry channeling inner and outer streams of imaginary landscapes - where poetry walks into the field of contemporary music.
Maja Jantar is a multilingual and polysonic voice artist living in Finland after long period in Belgium, whose work spans the fields of performance, music theatre and opera, poetry and visual arts. A co-founder of the group Krikri, she has been giving individual and collaborative performances throughout Europe and experimenting with poetic sound works since 1995. Born as daughter of opera singers, she spends her childhood travelling through Europe with her mother, enters and exits various languages, cultures; nomadic migrant, balances between the opera world and playing in her grandma’s garden, between ducks, sheep and sunset. Distant Tartar decendance echo’s in her soundings – weaving the operatic, poetic, abstract influences together to vocal sound works that landscape into performance.
From 2001 to present, Jantar has directed ten operas, i ncluding Monteverdi’s classic Incoronatione di Poppea and Sciarrino’s contemporary Infinito Nero. Her work invites to enter the field of the imaginary, the inner world, the inner
stream, the shamanistic, enchanting, prophetic. Circumventing the stage of the rational, in an attempt to enter through the back door of the intuitive.
