New work “Heavenly Bodies” by MBD73 performed in Sion, Switzerland by George Vassilev
More information soon about the concert to be performed in connection with the Festival Sion, Switzerland.
The work ” Heavenly Bodies ” is a work for electric guitar and electronics. It surrounds and hits you like a brick wall. Death , decay and destruction , is constantly lurking beneath the surface of perfect beauty. Sound pillars of beauty, floating in a dark and gloomy climate , with a meditative effect.
Based on the gruesome discovery of skeletons found in the catacombs of Rome in 1578, which was later transported in security the the southern parts of Germany , Switzerland and Austria, the art historian Paul Koudounaris has photographed dozens of these skeletons in some of the world’s most secretive religious institutions. The work ” Heavenly Bodies” confronts you with an ambiguous and mysterious musical space that brings the stories of the past out into the light of the present.
The work is conceived in 3 movements ( a triptych ) , with a total duration of 15 minutes.
1. St Pancratius
2. St. Valentin
3. St. Deodatus
