EL CANTO TELÚRICO. VOLUMEN IV. ESTEPA MONGOLA
Serpiente y flor
On my return from the Indian Himalayas where I had made the first recordings of telluric chanting with the piwang instrumentalist Jamiang Dorje; my friends in Barcelona commented on the similarity between these telluric chantings and the gutural chanting of the Mongolian khuumii.
My natural impulse of curiosity led me to the situation where on a Sunday morning, I found myself walking through the streets of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. This was the beginning of 1999 and the city was still asleep before the economical and social awakening that arrived in later years. Creating friendships with the small hispanic-americano colony, helped me to establish firm liaisons with the city. Thus I became the first spanish resident in this distant land of Central Asia. I began my first rehearsals with the virtuoso of the morin khuur and State Honored Artist, Chultem Batsaikhan. He is considered to be the finest player of the morin khuur in Mongolia. Later on I incorporated into the rehearsals a specialist of the ever buree and the State Honored Artist, Khorolnorov Amaraa, and companion of Batsaikhan in the National Orquestra of Mongolia. The ever buree is another strange and traditional instrument of Mongolia.
During the folowing two years, we realized a series of rehearsals and recordings. The initiation of these chantings in Mongolia, about the meeting between the snake and the flower of the water lily, constitutes an inportant and vital time for the conclusion of "The Myth of the Advent of the Prince". I started to write this myth at the beginning of the 1990's and it has since remained my main existencial and creative point of reference.
1. Lotus flower
Floating in primordial waters
Your life nourishes within the alluvium of death
There,the most subtle energies
Liberated from the action of existence
Are fused in you divine flor
