Giacinto Scelsi was particularly influenced by the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and La Mere

Since the 1940s, Giacinto Scelsi had been deeply involved with Eastern religions. He practised yoga as well as other religious disciplines and studied the works of, for example, Blavatsky and Gurdjieff, but he was particularly influenced by the teachings of Sri Aurobindo and La Mere. He believed that various meditation techniques, such as intoning the “OM”, enabled him to enter into a different vibratory realm. For him, sound in its purest vibration was a potent force that has an extremely powerful influence on people. He was convinced that, through meditation and improvisation, he could become a channel for higher forces which would enable the creation of works that were otherwise impossible through ordinary composition. this article origiinally appeared on francess-marie-uitti’s website Filed under: african noise foundation — ABRAXAS @ 11:30 pm
