    ABOUT Anchored in Perath: an apocalypse

    "Boastful pride of sweet Perath,
    Six words carried soft away . . .
    impaled onto their trumpet horns -
    Abram left them in their tents."

    "Anchored in Perath: an apocalypse" was commissioned by organist Carson Cooman and premiered by him on June 21, 2006 in Penfield, New York. The following was printed in the program:

    "Anchored in Perath: an apocalypse" (2006) is a 6-minute piece for solo organ inspired by a 4-stanza apocalyptic poem: "Sacred Stream IV: Meditations by the River Euphrates" (1999). This poem is the last in a 4-poem set about the past, present and future of the 4 rivers of Eden - written by the composer while residing a short walk from the Cliffs of Moher, County Clare, Ireland (the Atlantic coast north of Liscannor Bay).

    Per-ath’ is the Hebrew name for Euphrates, and the individuals who are “anchored” are the 4 angels bound there, loosed for great destruction only at the 6th Trumpet (Rev. 9: 13-21, violent war). Relating to this vision are also the visions of the 6th Bowl (Rev. 16: 12-16, where the Euphrates dries up), and, the 6th Seal (Rev. 6:12-17, a great earthquake). The numbers 6 and 4 become embedded in many levels throughout this layered work of blended poetry, music, and visual collage - hand-pastelled, glued, and torn by the composer. Stepping back from this complex canvas, the musical elements are oppositely calm and reflective, abstractly evocative, bold, at once clear and impressionistic - leaving space for the consideration of a past and prophetic drama so enormous, musical gestures fail to compete for foreground.

    This unique art piece developed from Mr. Cooman’s request (2005) for a graphic notation score (a rare, 20th-century illustrated print genre from which a musician must extrapolate sonic material) with an archaeological patina. The composer chose to make this a very personal work drawing on her Judean desert expedition experiences in Qumran, Israel (1989), her years of spiritual studies, and her penchant for symbolist design.

    The performer plays from a single, large color poster and is supplied with helps and keys to decipher various directions for cuneiform clefs, Sanskrit tempi, mixed alphabets, 1200 B.C. oil lamps, Qumran scroll jars, and more. A few sections of indeterminacy exist. Real cuneiform music was researched, real artifacts photographed - even down to a silver cartouche “Lynn” made at the Egyptian Pyramids, followed by “Job” faux-embossed onto a clay seal (brought out from the destruction layer of Jerusalem, the time of Baruch the Scribe) shown on the back cover credits. In the center of the top half is a reproduction of a mystic angel by George Frederick Watts “The Dweller in the Innermost” (1886) - completely unknown to the poet/composer until the last stage of this project and perfectly suited to the vision.

    This was a project terrific to explore and design, and, deeply satisfying to complete. "Anchored in Perath: an apocalypse" is published by Buckthorn Music Press (BMP no. 88) as a 4-fold color poster in a limited, numbered edition.
