About The-Unstitute

Programs by The-Unstitute:

Unvironments 5: Breath

The Unstitute (UK artists Marianna and Daniel) concludes its sonic exploration of meditative landscapes, created from the sounds collected in and around of Auroville, India where The Unstitute is currently in residence practicing the yoga of work.

This meditational landscape ‘Breath’ invokes an inner reality of breath as it unfolds in its rhythmic form and travels through vibrational chambers, echoing in the vast labyrinthine spaces created out layers of recordings of breath, voices and wind instruments.

Bhakti poetry in music and dance

BHAKTI POETRY IN MUSIC AND DANCE
24th March, 2016
Savitri Bhavan

A mesmerising performnce by Gordon Korstange on South Indian Flute, Joel Eisenkramer on Hindustani Slide Guitar and Madhumita Padnaik is improvised dancing to the narrative of the poetry read in English during the performance.

Bhakti movement refers to the theistic devotional trend that emerged in medieval Hinduism. It originated in the seventh-century Tamil South India (now parts of Tamil Nadu and Kerala), and spread northwards.
The meaning of the term Bhakti is analogous but different than Kama. Kama connotes emotional connection, sometimes with sensual devotion and erotic love. Bhakti, in contrast, is spiritual, a love and devotion to religious concepts or principles, that engages both emotion and
intellection.

Psychic Fire

An Offering for Auroville on it’s 48th Birthday

Taken from a recording of the dawn-fire at the amphitheatre on Auroville’s Birthday 2016, ‘Psychic Fire’ mines deeply the sound vibrations of the flame to release an inner complexity of harmony, dissonance, voices, shadows. The fire – which in its base perception is experienced as Fear – is transcribed into the meditative reality of divine anarchy, the primordial life-energy which is both the characteristic of Homo Sapiens (inquisitiveness/knowingness, burned on the Promethean fire of creative wisdom,) and of the evolution of consciousness, driving ever onwards towards states of greater cognitive complexity – towards the superhuman; the first rung on the ladder of conscious evolution.
This is not music, but I feel it is not abstraction either. Hovering between the half-light of conscious and unconscious reality, just as we so often hover between superhuman and ape mentalities, the audio field I have tried to produce is a psychic fire for the mind.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is the longest poem by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, published in 1798. Here, Holger Jetter delivers an electrifying improvisation of English Romanicism, articulated through the concept of the ‘Sublime’ and expressed with great colour and dynamism through a variety of instruments.

Norman Bowler has performed with this poem many times. Holger Jetter composed music especially for this performance. Matt Littlewood and Nadaprem play with him.

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner relates the experiences of a sailor who has returned from a long sea voyage. The mariner stops a man who is on the way to a wedding ceremony and begins to narrate a story. The wedding-guest’s reaction turns from bemusement to impatience to fear to fascination as the mariner’s story progresses, as can be seen in the language style: Coleridge uses narrative techniques such as personification and repetition to create a sense of danger, the supernatural, or serenity, depending on the mood in different parts of the poem.
