Priscilla Ermel – Luar // Taken from Priscilla Ermel – Orignes Da Luz (Music From Memory, 2020)

Origens Da Luz brings together a selection of recordings from Brazilian composer and multi-instrumentalist Priscilla Ermel drawn from a body of work that was originally recorded between 1986 and 1994.

Carrying out this photograph project is because of the inspiration after reading the novel River of the North written by Zhang Chengzhi.
The river, which once was full of legends, had gone and disappeared. That is kind of my profound pessimism.

Nevertheless, as a vast country with a long history, its future is always bright. There is a descent in the matrix; there is her own nutrition to feed her babies; there is the power of creation to cultivate them strongly. The weak moaning finally will be drowned by the shout for joy. From this point of view, it seems, all shall be optimistic.

Zhang Kechun
