"Created by Francisco López with original sound matter recorded from body,
clothes and immediate surrounding space during ritual whirling by
Valentina Lacmanović. As subtle as the almost invisible image that appears
on the back cover, this work translate the dancer’s breath and movements
into music. One of the most interesting concepts in López later works and
surely one of the best entries in his ever-growing discography.

Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures of
the sound art and experimental music scene. For more than thirty years he
has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and
iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying
boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound
environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most
dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and
transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open
to sensory and spiritual expansion. He has realized hundreds of concerts,
projects with field recordings, workshops and sound installations in over
sixty countries of the five continents. His extensive catalog of sound pieces
(with live and studio collaborations with over 150 international artists) has
been released by more than 300 record labels worldwide. He has been
awarded four times with honorary mentions at the competition of Ars
Electronica Festival and is the recipient of the Qwartz Award 2010 for best
sound anthology. Since 1999 Valentina Lacmanović has researched dances
from different cultures through their ritual, folk, classic, and contemporary
aspects. From 2001 onwards, her work has been focused on the creation of
dance-theater and multimedia performances where Eastern and Western
worlds meet. She has worked intensively on creating performances inspired
by dances of trance and collaborates with artists from various disciplines.
Profound research into dances of trance and ritual versus performing
spaces since 2003 gave new direction to her work as an art director and
performer. Her investigations into whirling dance led to insights into its
origins and practice extending beyond Sufi meditation that supply an
inexhaustible source of artistic inspiration and contemporary creativity,
ultimately resulting in the project Shedervish, which marked an important
change in her artistic development."  (Silentes)
