Keinutan Kaikua (L​.​Onerva, 1904) feat. Lau Nau

from Kuuntele by AGF & Various

supported by


Onerva's (1882–1972; real name: Hilja Onerva Lehtinen) "I rock the echo" from the collection Mixed Tunes (1904) brings up the deepest mission of a poet through voice, echo, and resonance: to express with words that which can not be pronounced, rhythm behind meanings, pulse which comes up from Julia Kristeva's chora, the deepest innards of a woman. In this lullaby the lyrical subject rocks music into being. The heroine of Onerva's first novel Mirdja (1908) is not a poetess, but a singer. The writer herself lived surrounded by music as wife of compositor Leevi Madetoja. Lau Nau, a Finnish underground musician and singer lends her voice to this fragile creation based on a song made entirely from an iPad app by AGF.
