Igor Wakhevitch - Nagual LP 24871
Originally released in 1977, this was (once again) a product of the fruitful association betweenWakhevitch and american dancer / choreographer Carolyn Carlson. Compiling some of the pieces specially written for Carlson's This, that and the other (created for the Groupe de recherche Théâtrale de l'Opéra de Paris), the album follows the otherwordly steps of it's predecessor (Les Fous D'or) in a more calm, relaxed, almost nocturnal way.ÊInspired by Carlos Castaneda's writings, Nagual is another mysterious and intriguing statement of musical esoterica:Êa collection of twelve musical vignettes covering a whole range of styles, from majestic electronic pieces to echo-drenched concrete-like sketches via impressionistic piano compositions. A bewitching musical journey, built around Wakhevitch's keys where electronics give way to more acoustic sonorities (piano, harp) for a highly-charged magical sound. A very special record !!! Limited to 500 copies.
