Ignis is the fourth album by Swiss violinist Paul Giger recorded in 1998 and released on the ECM label. Allender awarded the album 4 stars stating the pieces on Ignis form a body of old-world sacred music with an avant-garde sensibility. In 2011, Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer used samples of Ignis as the basis for the track Reshadub on the remix album Re:ECM. All compositions by Paul Giger except as indicated. Organum Anonymous - 6:26. Swiss violin virtuoso Paul Giger's 2000 release, Ignis, marks in many ways a departure from his other recorded work. Recorded in 1998 as a collaboration with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, the pieces on Ignis form a body of old-world sacred music with an avant-garde sensibility. Of the five pieces featured, only one is an original Giger composition, the others being adaptations of found melodies and arrangements of medieval compositions. Most striking is his re-recording of Karma Shadub. Listen free to Paul Giger Ignis Organum, Karma Shadub and more. 5 tracks 65:19.
