Skana, Goddesses and More." is a new live performance that will take place at Galapagos arts space in NYC on Sept 27, 2011 . The event gathers original female performers with  an engaging presence to weave together a web of music ,dance and theatrality .that is .wavering , ethereal ,poetic. The evening is divided in 2 parts :

"Goddess chronicles" is a show written and performed by composer Milica Paranosic that features Milica's intimate views and interpretations of Goddesses from Roman, Slavic, Ewe, Hindu, Brazilian and Egyptian mythologies, in collaboration with Visual Artist Carmen Kordas  

Muriel Louveau's performance "Skana and more"  is an extended and theatrical show with live vocals music and dance. Muriel will perform songs of the album Skana produced  with american composer Charles B Kim and other selected pieces, all in foreign languages inspired by far off lands, and coming  from liturgical as well as poetic sources. 

For this new  version, the choreographer dancer Emily Pope Blackman joins Muriel  to  create dance works in response to her singing.

Special thanks  to our collaborators  Dale Knoth, conception &lightings design, and Shyamal Maitra, sound design & live effects


  • It all started when French singer, Muriel Louveau , and American composer Charles B Kim produced  and wrote "Skana " a cd entirely recorded in cyber space .Despite the music having groundings in the past, the production of this album was a very 21st century endeavor.  Thanks to modern technology, the end result is the same as if Louveau and Kim had worked in the same studio in the same city. So the concept of staging Skana as a theatrical journey , with  compatible, innovative artists who follow the same cyber creative process , came as a natural consequence. And this is what has been  happening: Muriel, Milica as well as the dancer Emily are using Skype to draft ideas and transfer video files  to conceive  the synopsis of the performance.

Now we have this unique opportunity  to make  our project evolve from the virtual to the physical world and to get it " tangible"  to create an extended format called Skana, Goddesses and More .Through the sparse use of new technologies, scenography and creative lightings in response to the live elements, we will explore new contemporary territories and together write and perform a new score and story, across many medium


We need  your financial support  to cover the production costs, for rehearsals ,studio sessions,equipment rental for sound & video recording,  and payments to the composers ,performers,  sound and lighting designers, for the research , work and  preparation time of the project  .We'd also need to cover post production expenses for video editing and DVD making of the live performance.Our Kickstarter campaign is vital to launch this new performance and meet the audience.

This project is a" work in progress " the first step  towards a  future multi media performance we'd like to develop that contributes to awareness of "re-interpretation" from ancient languages rooted in time, while projecting future artistic language that everyone will feel,   We need a successful  exposure at Galapagos to make the work  progress , present it in other US venues and possibly in  european countries.

We are looking forward to it and we want you to get involved and make you dream !

We'd also appreciate if you spread the word, post the information about our project on your blogs, Twitter , FB pages, We hope to hear from you soon !

Skana premiére "a journey between day and night "

Skana, from the Latvian word for “sound,” is a collaboration between French vocalist/composer Muriel Louveau and American composer Charles B. Kim.The first live performance by Muriel Louveau is here in NYC on November 11th, 7pm, at Le Poisson Rouge.with special guest cellist Dorothy Lawson of ETHEL and opener Earthman ExperienceSkana, a journey between day and nightMelding haunting vocals, ambient electronics and pulsating rhythms, Skana seeks to explore the area between day and night, light and shadow, wakefulnessand sleep. The music of Skana 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 DOWNLOAD SERVICES.) http://www.skanamusic.comThe live performance of Skana features the vocalist Muriel Louveau. She projects and modulates her singing vocals within a sound environment that goes along with wavering, ethereal, watery lighting atmospheres... to draw the audience in to a sort of trance.Based in Paris, Muriel Louveau writes and performs contemporary medieval music. "My songs drive us into a cosmopolitan space and time somewhere at the crossroad of the other languages" explains Louveau. She has performed in NYC at the Orensanz Center, Irving Plaza and at BAM with the show "The World Mysteries", created for the Next Wave Festival.Recent collaborative projects include "Edda" (2006), a multi media event with the English artist Holly Warburton, presented at Le Cube (Centre of Digital Arts), Paris and in London ,"At table", a reenactment of a medieval painting with the artist Ann Marie Lequesne . Since 2002 she has been invited to international events, especially SKIFF in St. Petersburg, "French Spring Festival" in Latvia (May 2007, Premiére of "Tales of Colours" commissioned by the CCF), Europe XXL Lille 3000 (April 2009). Her songs have been broadcast on BBC 3 (Late Junction) and on WNYC (New Sounds).Charles Byungkyu Kim is a composer who has worked on various films including Solaris (2002), Wonderland (2003) and Wicker Park (2004) as a music programmer and additional music composer. Charles scored the short film, Together, directed by Sunghee Hong. He recently composed music for the upcoming feature films, First Snow, directed by Mark Fergus and Hers, directed by Jeong Jung Kim.Skana will feature special guest cellist Dorothy Lawson, of ETHEL, the extremely well known and well respected “premiere postclassical string quartet."Earthman Experience will open the show featuring their unique and unforgettable sound and leader Richard Laurent, pka Kraze and Earthman, will exhibit some of his oil paintings.http://lepoissonrouge.com/events/view/666
