La Noche Oscura Del Alma




Tonestrukt Records, Los Angeles, California has just released this record, La Noche Oscura Del Alma. It is an 80 minute elaboration on recordings of a traverso baroque flute as played on by Perth born Australian flautist Georgia Browne who approximates the 16 tone scale of Magnús Jensson with various alternate fingerings and bends. Most of the sound material derives from these recordings.

As the title suggests the piece relates to the Carmelite saint San Juan de la Cruz or Saint John of the Cross’s work of La Noche Oscura del Alma translated to English as Dark Night of the Soul or perhaps more famously The Long Dark Night of the Soul.
