The open project BOOK OF RITUALS gathers short pieces for voice and one (preferably) ethnic (and small) percussion instrument. The texts (written by the composer) evoke artificial magical spells. Both text and music conjure up existing languages and cultures without explicitly citing or even trying to imitate. These music settings travel back to the contexts of pre-historical music, they dream of corresponding places for future performances, such as caves, old cisterns and water reservoirs, catacombs, etc..
