Elysian Chants, the first release by Caverna delle Rose, takes us on an evocative journey through seven Orphic Hymns (Late Hellenistic Period) and a Song of Creation.
The album was born from a common feeling between three artists particularly interested in ancient and “primitive” cultures. The third member of the group is in fact Diego Cinquegrana, a visual artist who has been curating the whole image of AimA for a long time and author of the entire artwork for “Les Chimeres” by Les Jumeaux Discordants.
The work focused on sound research inspired by some selected Orphic Hymns and by a Song of Creation: Hyle, the shapeless matter waiting to be molded, waiting for a form, for an order and causative capacity. It is a work that alternates Dionysian moments with Apollonian.
When Hyle was born, AimA was studying Bernardo Silvestre, a medieval Platonist philosopher of the 12th century and she was inspired at that time in the creation of this song (which in fact goes beyond the work on the Orphic Hymns), but consistent with the discourses around Cosmogony.
In perfect harmony with the theme, Evor created a scenario of explosive creation supported by the sound integrations of Diego.
Release scheduled for November 2021, from Slaughter in Art.
