Sokolowska, Joanna Halszka: Msza (Bolt)

Label: Bolt    
Released in: Poland    


"The album is a studio version of a chamber opera prepared by Joanna Halszka Sokolowska at Opera// REMIX at Komuna// Warszawa. The starting point was John Barton Wolgamot's poem "In Sara Mencken, Christ and Beethoven there were men and women". The starting point was Robert Ashleys composition under the same title. The starting point was bringing thousands of people together. Everyone equal, nobody playing secondary role; all organized into sections, every section being a variant of another.

The difference is in names, like in the airport, or art world, or Facebook, or disco, or Bible. What brings these people together? What is the new entity they form? What is there between Sara Powell Hardt and Claud Henri de Saint-Simon? Luigi Pirandello and Jane Austen? We take Wolgamot as a soothsayer of Facebook, disco and mass - environments of the descension of God. There is Gertruda Stein waiting for him, trusting that everything can be found in names. There is Ludwig van Beethoven completing his "most successful piece". There is Rainer Maria Rilke translating his "Notes on the Melody of Things". There is a choir laying on the floor and bringing God down. And they are all informed by numerological methods, scientific statistics and cabalistic interpretation of the Tree of Life.

And they are all framed by a disco ball."-Bolt
