Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This composition is dedicated to the Latvian Radio Choir and premièred in the summer of 2012.
    “Here I've gone the way of democratic multiculturalism, trying to prove again and again that everything is one, and one is everything. There is no difference or isolation between us, between our worlds. We all live together, under one sky.
    The composition makes use of three related texts: the Classical Latin Lux Aeterna, the classic Buddhist mantra to eternal light and the Vedic mantra to eternal light, which is written in Tantric seed syllables. That the very sound
    of a word also embodies its essence, content and meaning is a phenomenon that is not found in contemporary descriptive languages.
    Solfeggio frequencies have been used towards the end of the composition which, according to several controversial studies, correspond with the vibrations of a person's energy centres.”
