Kyrielle is an invocation to the Virgin Mary. The title is from a medieval French poetic form based on the Kyrie (“God have mercy on us”). Since it has the French “elle” (“she”) embedded in it, the word Kyrielle can also evoke a female deity, not just the Christian Mary, but all compassionate female spirits such as the Chinese Kwan-Yin, the Japanese Kannon, and the Tibetan Tara.

I created the tape part on a Macintosh G4 computer, using C-Sound and ProTools.”
