LISTENING EXPERIENCE

Open Haus: The Gyuto Monks Tibetan Tantric Choir

Reethaus at Flussbad
21.01.2024
14:00 - 22:00

“They will rattle your bones”, Mickey Hart said about the Gyuto Monks Tibetan Tantric Choir. No small praise coming from the drummer of the Grateful Dead. To launch our 2024 program at the Reethaus, Soundwalk Collective presents Hart’s 1986 recording of the choir, part of the Gyuto Order originating in Tibet in the 15th century.

Their chanting was never heard outside the context of their temples until after the Chinese annexation of Tibet in 1959, when the order fled to India. At that point, their prayers became political, expressive of the Tibetan resistance, and a spiritual rallying cry for repressed peoples. “Close your eyes, leave behind your prejudices,” Hart said, “After an hour of their sound, you’ll be different, cleaner, lighter.”

In 1985, the Gyuto Monks Tantric Choir came to the attention of the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, who brought them to his California studio to record the incredible multiphonics of their sacred rituals. The monks gave Hart permission to overdub their voices, achieving the huge sound of the 100-voice choir as one might hear at their mountain monastery – with each monk’s voice singing a complete, extraordinary chord.

Heard on January 21 over the 360-degree spatial sound system of the Reethaus, the  tantric choir produces a rhythmic chewing sound at the lowest range of the human voice, interspersed with sounds from bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Melody is not the point here—nor even musicality—but rather the body’s physical response to the grating repetitions, and the spiritual strength that follows from becoming one with their movements.

“The chanting heard on this recording is prayer, not performance,” the original record sleeve reads. ”Whenever this recording is played its prayers are effectively said anew — though their power depends less upon mechanistic reproduction than on the degree of attention and compassion with which you, the listener, join in the experience.”

PERFORMANCE

Crystal Winds Live

Reethaus at Flussbad
18.11.2023
18:00 - 22:00

As part of our exploration into traditional and sacred musical forms, the Reethaus welcomes Crystal Winds, a duo playing Carnatic music, one of two Indian classical music genres that evolved from ancient Hindu texts and traditions, particularly the Samaveda. The duo consists of Loup Barrow, one of the few musicians to play the Cristal Baschet, a chromatically tuned instrument invented in 1953, and a young virtuoso named Flute J. A. Jayant on the bansuri flute, an instrument dating back to the vedic period. The glass rods of the Cristal Baschet are played with the fingertips to produce acoustic waves that comix with the sounds of the bansuri flute as the duo follows the strict rules of Carnatic music, including the rhythmic tala system.

The performance takes place in the inner room of the Reethaus, an intimate space where audience and artist are in close communion. Light food and drinks will be served over the course of the evening, and the performance will be followed by a moderated conversation with the artists, as well as the curators of the performance, Alexandra de Cadaval and Alain Weber, the world music advisor to the Philharmonie de Paris. Together, Cadaval and Weber direct and curate the Sacred Spirit Festival of Jodhpur and Nagaur, the Fez World Sacred Music Festival and Les Orientales d’Anjou Festival in Saint-Florent le Vieil and Angers.

LISTENING EXPERIENCE

La Monte Young: 12-Hour Sound Installation

Reethaus at Flussbad
14.10.2023
12:00 - 23:59

Presented by Soundwalk Collective, the Reethaus hosts a rare staging of an early composition by La Monte Young, one of the first American minimalist composers, a drone music pioneer and a central figure in Fluxus and postwar avant-garde music. The 24-hour sound installation takes place during the entire duration of Young’s 88th birthday and will include the full-length rendition of “The Well-Tuned Piano in the Magenta Lights: 87 V 10 6:43:00 PM — 87 V 11 1:07:45 AM NYC,” a solo improvised work that he performed live in public over 65 times between 1974 and 1987 in the Marian Zazeela light environment.

Conceived in 1964, this work continued absorbing, evolving and expanding for over two decades until it flourished to its full structure in the 1980s. Each performance was improvised by memory over an interwoven architectural form, which often inspired new material while performing. During the second decade, the scale of the work had expanded exponentially with a wealth of musical materials built from the organic confluence of both Western and Hindustani classical traditions.

The keyboard of Young’s Bösendorfer was sometimes stained with blood from his wounded fingers after a long performance. The 45-minute recorded version (1964) gradually developed into a continuous 6-hour 25-minute virtuoso live performance in 1987. “The Well-Tuned Piano” is certainly the epitome of a justly tuned piano in the modern context that transcends the character and limitations of the instrument. While deeply rooted in the ancient traditions of aural primacy, tonal structure and modality, “The Well-Tuned Piano” delineated an unprecedented sustained harmonic resonance and a complex sonic epic that we had never before experienced.

PERFORMANCE

Soundwalk Collective: All the Beauty & the Bloodshed Live Score

Reethaus at Flussbad
24.09.2023
18:00 - 22:00

To kick off their “Transmissions” series at the Reethaus, Soundwalk Collective performs their score to Laura Poitras’ Oscar-nominated documentary film “All the Beauty and the Bloodshed,” a biographical documentary about the internationally renowned photographer, artist and activist Nan Goldin, for the first time in a live environment.

The performance takes place in the inner room of the Reethaus, an intimate space where audience and artist are in close communion. Light food and drinks will be served over the course of the evening and the performance will be followed by a panel discussion.

Composed in collaboration with Zacharias Falkenberg and Johannes Malfatti, Soundwalk Collective’s composition draws connections with the life and work of German poet Friedrich Hölderlin, who was removed from society through confinement in institutions. In his last poems, written as fragments while he was plagued by mental illness, Hölderlin renders nature, in all its fragility and ephemerality. Similar themes merge in Laura’s portrait of Goldin, whose life was profoundly marked by her sister’s depression and suicide, and serve as an inspiration for the composition of the choral songs and cantus within the soundtrack.

Through the repetition of words and layering of voices, the lyric scansion operates like a language possessed, echoing various styles from sacred music to modern minimalist techniques. Following this same pattern, the scored music produces a trance that oscillates between grace and madness. The music is characterized by quivering voices and swells, de-tuning and lingering, shifting around the surreal and interwoven with excerpts of Goldin’s direct narration. As in light going through a prism: music may have a slightly different meaning for each listener, thus creating a spectrum of musical experience, similar to a rainbow of light.

Vocals will be performed live by members of the Berlin choir A Song for You, some of whom sang on the original score.

Jason Kriegler Exhibition

Tulum Treehouse welcomes our new exhibiting artist, Merida-based textile painter Jason Kriegler. Drawing influence from traditional textile design, Jason incorporates abstraction to create contemporary works that blur the lines between painting and textile art. His pared-down paper embroidery paintings suggest organic, biological forms but can also be experienced purely as abstracted combinations of shapes, line and texture.

Despite their simplicity, they have a captivating quality that reveals the complexity of hand embroidering onto paper, enlivened by a sense of depth that only seems to grow with continued examination. The exhibition runs for six months.

From the jungle-facing roof terrace of the Treehouse, we continue our conversation series hosted by acclaimed writer Daniel Pinchbeck on the new regenerative paradigm and the impact of rapid development on the indigenous communities and natural ecosystems of Tulum and other developing destinations.

Daniel has written extensively about ecology, shamanism, psychedelics and indigenous prophecy in his books, which include Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, Notes from the Edge Times and most recently, How Soon is Now?
