    Zen polyphony

    A real strange discovery..

    http://www.polyfoon.be/

    Sandokai is a work written by a composer who happens to be also a Zen priest and has composed pieces based on Renaissance polyphony using Dogen's texts...Click on sandokai and select the piece you would like to listen to.

    Wow :shock:
    That is not a common thing... but what a great idea and practice... far beyond cultures, religions, ... very nice indeed!
    And Antwerpen (Anvers) is a lovely city... maybe I'll go listen to it... but I havn't seen new dates on their schedule...

    Anyway, thank you for sharing Taigu,

    gassho,

    HOLY GUACAMOLE!

    Now those are some really interesting sounds to listen to. Far beyond cultures indeed.

    I just listened to all the samples and it's just amazing.

    I have always liked the original sound of sutras and chanting, but this is a whole new approach.

    Thank you very much, Taugu-san.
