ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I Ching Elements is the name of Gabriela Horn’s new CD. It contains eight tracks, reflecting the characters of the I Ching. Carefully elaborated with an orchestra and traditional Chinese instruments, the music sensitively shows the individual features of the I Ching.
On this music sample you will be able to experience the wonderful new compositions by Gabriela Horn, implementing the fine qualities of the eight characters of the I Ching. Gabriela plays different kinds of harps, including a 120 year old Eard concert harp, the Koto (a Japanese zither) and the Chinese Guzkeng.
The I Ching is one of the oldest wisdoms of mankind, as well as being a phenomenal book of Oracles.
Hermann Hesse, C G Jung, Bob Dylan and many other great personalities have trusted its wisdom. With its infinite numerology of the 64 Hexagrams it describes the processes of our world’s development in a unique poetic way.
In our time of transition and change, of searching for a new direction in a world of disorientation, this music helps to remind us of the old wisdom and beauty if the I Ching. Those who are searching for new answers will certainly find keys in this ancient wisdom.

Hermann Hesse:”So, if you look at one of the character combinations, for example, Qian (the creative), or Xun (the Gentle), it is not comparable to reading or thinking but it is more like observing flowing water or clouds passing by. Anything that could possibly be thought or experienced is written in the I Ching.”

C A Jung: “The I Ching does not want to prove or to explain, it does not boast and it is certainly not easy to approach. It is part of nature, waiting to be discovered. It offers neither facts nor power but it is the right book for those who are seeking self-knowledge and wise deeds, assuming such things exist.”

Gabriela Horn presents a kaleidoscope of sounds for the audience. She is inspired by the roots and diversity of different musical cultures. Traditional themes are transformed into new sound sensations by subtle compositions and the vibrant atmosphere of her free improvisations.
Using the entire fascinating facets of her instrument, Gabriela manages to integrate traditional music as well as motives of modern music.

She gives special emphasis to Japanese music and the Koto, which is also known as the “lying harp.” Her compositions express her enthusiasm for the Japanese pentatonic music, also blending in Spanish, Bretonic, as well as medieval and renaissance influences. The repertoire includes her own compositions as well as famous traditional medieval music, from meditating literature to Polyrhythmic.
