12.14.14 — Kickstarter Campaign for INVOCATIONS Launched
INVOCATIONS is designed to illuminate the Word of God in two different cultures and styles — Eastern and Western.
In every song the words remain the same: the poetic Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of Scripture. They are first sung in English, illustrated by music drawn from the rich English tradition of familiar folk songs and elegant sacred melodies. They are then transformed into the stirring sound of Thai classical and newly described in lilting Thai vocals and the haunting harmonies of Eastern instrumentation.
It is musically designed to appeal to the home culture of two distinct audiences, yet remain united by the core element of common words. The result is an intertwined music that feels both faraway and yet close to home, at once familiar and strange, pastoral and sublime.
Anticipated release is December 2015.
