Magic Songs - R. Murray Schafer

87 ratings | 7318 views
"Magic Songs" leads us back to the era of ‘tone magic’, when the purpose of singing was not merely to give pleasure but was intended to bring about a desired effect in the physical world. In spirit culture, everything has its voice and the aim of the singer is to unify her- or himself with this voice. The aim of these songs, with magic texts in a language spoken by no human, is to restore aspects of nature which have been destroyed or neglected by humanity. To the extent that the performers and the audience believe in them, they will be successful. This video has been created with permission from R.
