The lyrics of this piece are very simple, and it's a slow, meditative, ambient arrangement. The legend which inspired it is the story 'Sealskin, Soulskin' as told in the book "Women Who Run With The Wolves" by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. The message is - go home to the soul.
It's very rare that I perform this piece live. Although it is one of the simpler Kirrivath tracks, it is still fairly complex, mostly because I can't exactly sing and play panflute at the same time! Also, performing singing bowl and rainstick at the same time is just a little difficult as well. Sometimes I do it in the TTC (subway) with just voice and singing bowl... however for this event I wanted to do it justice.
Using the iPad and two wonderful volunteers, this is a fully improvised LIVE version of the song inspired by Inuit legend.
Vocals, iPad Synthesizers - Chagall Sierra (Kirrivath)
Singing Bowl - Dianne Knight
Rainstick - Himaani
Live Sound - Roger Sader
For my beloved iPad Musicians - the programs used were:
Magellan - Drone in octaves
Ondes - Second drone and Lead
Thumbjam - Panflute
I've run the audio through Reaper DAW and tweaked a couple of things. Enjoy this extremely rare performance!
