At the National Opera of Paris :
ę A long journey of initiation into the repetitive music of Igor Wakhevitch in which electro-acoustic are subtly blended with voice recordings, orchestral instruments and strains of
sing-speech patterns so that Carolyn Carlsonís performance is a perfectly finished work Ľ

ę Be wide in me,
O Varuna ;
be mighty in me, O Indra ;
O Sun, be very bright and luminous ; O Moon, be full of charm
and sweetness. Be fierce and terrible, O Rudra ;
be impetuous and swift, O Maruts ; be strong and bold, O Aryama ;
be voluptuous and pleasurable, O Bhaga ;
be tender and kind and loving and passionate, O Mitra.
Be bright and revealing, O Dawn ; O Night, be solemn and pregnant.
O Life, be full, ready & buoyant ; O Death, lead my steps from mansion
to mansion. Harmonise all these, O Brahmanaspati.
Let me no subject to these gods, O Kali Ľ
