Léonin: Viderunt omnes

The Omnific: Erin
Pérotin: Beata viscera

The Omnific: Final Tree
Anonymous: Vetus abit littera
Anonymous: Dominus clausulae

The Omnific: Kismet
Pérotin: Viderunt omnes

A collaboration across genres with a unifying interest in the deep resonances of vocal cords, struck strings, and powerful harmonies.  A cluster of rising stars from Melbourne, The Omnific has already made a name for their unique rhythmic interplay and wordless metallic fantasias.  The Omnific’s two five-string bass guitarists’ classic duo Kismet and other works are interleaved with multi-voice chanting and improvisation from the male voices of The Song Company in music from Magister Pérotin’s masterpiece Viderunt omnes and its late 12th-century inspirations, echoed by a high soprano in his most haunting of songs, Beata viscera.
