Dragonjazz This record has it all : experimental style, heavenly voices, luminous choruses, mysterious words, and even melodies that stick with you for months. Much more than a simple collection of tunes, it is a singular vision of another dimension which embraces desire, poetry, mysteries of nature, and some white magic as well. Belgian born Sophie Tassignon is a master of control and expression while Mysteries Unfold is one of the most successful vocal/electronic works ever produced. Favorite track: Witches.

about

On her first solo album, Mysteries Unfold, the Belgian-born, Berlin-based vocalist Sophie Tassignon transcends time and language to explore and evoke a stunning panoply of human emotion.

Mysteries Unfold weaves a dazzling sonic tapestry from the varicoloured threads of Tassignon’s versatile and daring voice. Able to grip the listener’s heart with just her emotional expression of a lyric, Tassignon crafts a staggering variety of effects by layering her voice into polyphonic architectures or lush choruses, powerful ensembles or enigmatic atmospheres. Drawing influence from the ancient to the boundary-stretching, she unearths a unifying strain of spiritual longing that underlies the human experience.

Mysteries Unfold presents something entirely new, stark in its elements but limitless in its imaginative possibilities.

This openness shines through Tassignon’s often surprising choice of material for the project. Along with four striking original compositions, the vocalist performs pieces by Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi, country songwriter Dolly Parton, Russian bard Yuliy Chersanovich Kim, and folk-rock band Cowboy Junkies. Harmonies that harken back to Gregorian chants coexist with bold, modern electroacoustic experimentation, primal vocalizations with luxurious melodies, yet all sound of a piece through the vessel of Tassignon’s virtuoso vocals.
