about

Voix Celeste is a soundscape journey of the human mindscape or a deep dive to the soul of humankind.

I have found classical music by listening Isao Tomitas Snowflakes Are Dancing, Holst The Planets, The Bermuda Triangle and The Ravel Album. This journey has led me onto the Olivier Messiaens music. First time I heard Le Banquet Celeste I thought what an ambient piece. The structure and the chords sound very modern. Messiaen composed this piece 1928 and it was his first organ composition and first release of original music. It starts from silence, it ends to silence, and it is surrounded by silence. This piece has only 25 bars but the tempo is so slow that it lasts 10 minutes.

Macrocosmos is a long improvisation where I try to create an illusion of stopping the time. Time is a state of mind that music creates in the mind of listener.

Robert Fludds (1574-1637) medieval physics, astrology and philosophy has been the inspirational force for the rest of the music in this album.
