Lisa Gerrard and Mark St. John Ellis worked together via long distance communication between Australia and Ireland on the second version of The Empty Vessel, a music piece using percussive bowls, a singing bowl, bass voice and samples by Mark St.John. Lisa Gerrard is one of the most creative and beautiful voices in contemporary music. It is a privilege for the Irish record label DeNovaDaCapo to have been given this opportunity to take what was an attractive, meditative and contemplative piece, into the realms of the sublime and release it as a CD. Her original and inspiring voice demonstrates delicate vulnerability and emotional strength in one piece of music. Lisa’s creative technician in Australia, Simon Bowley did the vocal mixes with effects on the bowls and samples, in Ireland Martin Quinn did the mastering and the creative director on the project was Mark St. John Ellis.
