About Invocation :
This disc is a true “Invocation” of the underground forces that bind man to nature by raising him in a metaphysical space created through sound rituals …
These are the daily rituals that build particular sound universes, like in The Valley of the Bells in Mirrors of Ravel, or rituals related to other cultures like in ethe case of Marco Stroppa’s Tangata Manu or from André Jolivet’s Mana Suite.
Alex Nante’s piece, composed for Maroussia Gentet on the occasion of the 13th International Competition of Orleans, is itself a real invocation and gives the title to the record.
Three new preludes, composed by Philippe Schoeller for Maroussia Gentet, enrich the universe of the disc … Tributes to three great painters which are also the opportunity to invoke new sounds: the record will be recorded on a new instrument, the piano Opus 108 by Stephen Paulello.
