Vox Vespertinus: Elements–Wind, The Sylphs

Vox Vespertinus is a multi-faceted vocalist with a four octave range. Operatically trained, she loops and layers her otherworldy vocalizations over synth compositions and organic sounds. She embraces mysticism, alchemy, illumination, mythology, mystery, both the angelic realms and the underworld, and what lies beyond the veil. She is often invited to compose/contribute to projects and events of ritual, spiritual, cosmic, fantasy, and magic and can shift easily from aetheric operatic “voxings” to demonic screaming. After recording the music for The Sylphs, she felt compelled to augment the work with imagery. Sylphs are invisible elementals who dwell within the air, the wind and its current, and thus the creatures who thrive in. In some folklore they act as oracles speaking to humans through the sound of wind. The Sylphs music video is her first film project.

Sure on this Shining Night by Roxanna Walitzki

Samuel Barber’s “Sure on this Shining Night” is a moment of ecstatic nocturnal tranquility. Published in 1940 by G. Shirmer Inc. with a poem by James Agee, the song stems from a time of unrest and chaos similar to our own. An undeniably beautiful composition, it is a reminder that beauty helps and heals. Beauty can transport us to a better place, and provides hope when the odds are against us.
