Ecco 10:00


MAL 011; Lisa Holmqvist / Hermes Trismegistus

Swedish composer Lisa Holmqvist interprets the writings of Hermes Trismegistus through “Ecco”, a sparsely ornate vocal piece. The thrice-greatest Hermes – ancient mythical figure and alleged author of “The Emerald Tablet” and the “Corpus Hermeticum” – calls for a transmutation of the vulgar (as in common) into the divine, or an elevation of the soul. In Holmqvist’s composition the solitary call of a breathy voice evokes a celestial response; an echo harmonising its own source of origin.

“Ecco” (2019) composed, performed and recorded by Lisa Holmqvist.

“The Emerald Tablet” and the “Corpus Hermeticum” (ca. 200 BC-300 AD) by Hermes Trismegistus. Sound collage by Hans Richter, reading by Kali Malone.
