Improvised polyphonic recitation of the Druid chant of the Awen from the forest stream of Dearbhanu in Devon UK. A simple raw honest field recording of the chant from beside a local forest stream in a cave. A way through using sacred syllables laden with intention but also freed from the constraints of grasping and striving – searching and finding. Allowing the self-arising clarity and inspirations to flow unhindered by the mind and heart. A relinquishing of attachment to retrieving the lost and perhaps more a remembering an active participation to that which is already there and abundant.
While inspiration is perhaps never continuous and more prone to a tidal coming and going like the breath of life – there is a wellspring from which we can always drink and discover new beautiful ways to learn from it. Any word can be used as a catalyst with sound and an intention set, but words which have been used and uttered by others many times with truth in their heart have a flavour that endures and continues the spiral in all directions.
Our latest release The Canticle of the Serene Heart on Jamendo is an improvised vocal sound healing meditation to assist and promote harmony and a peaceful heart.
Recorded in the forest with a iPhone, this track is composed of multiple vocal improvisations around eachother, layered at times randomly. Intentionality plays a key role if not the most critical when it comes to sacred sound- so the sounds have come together for the purpose of assisting/ fascilitating the listeners journey into a deepening flowering of the heart. The clean clear nature of the mind.
I like recording this way, out in nature no equipment and expensive plugins and hardware, just a phone and cheap mic and the imagination. So in the track you will hear rain, wind and streams and oceans and leaves blowing in the winds- I did not try to edit them out. This track is inspired by my Druidic work with the forest and nature and the elements in general. I was lucky enough to have animals guest on the track too – many birds and other beauties 🙂
