Skaņa, from the Latvian word for “sound,” is a collaboration between French vocalist/composer Muriel Louveau and American composer Charles B. Kim.Melding haunting vocals, ambient electronics and pulsating rhythms, Skaņa seeks to explore the area between day and night, light and shadow, wakefulnessand sleep. The music of Skaņa is inspired by ancient cultures and far off lands but also draws upon distinctly modern musical elements in order to create a sound that is both contemporary and classical. In this regard, the past is prologue. The texts of these songs come from liturgical as well as poetic sources.Some are original texts written expressly for this album. All share the similar theme of straddling the space between light and darkness.Despite the music having groundings in the past, the production of this album was a very 21st century endeavor. Louveau, based in Paris, and Kim, in Los Angeles, never actually met during the production of this album (AVAILABLE FROM ITUNES & OTHER MUSIC DOWNLOAD SERVICES.)The live performance of Skana features the vocalist Muriel louveau She projects and modulates her singing vocals within a sound environmment that goes along with .. wavering , ethereal , watery lightings atmospheres... to draw the audience in to a sort of trance.MUSIC by Muriel Louveau & Charles B.
