“The great Manitous or high dieties … could not be invoked as the ultimate causes of all things. Apparently the Indians … assumed that the phenomena of nature has always existed somewhere, and … in their other myths merely described how they had been brought into present relationship with man.” —Diamond Jenness (1932). “Manito” is a tape composition based on synthesized sound, voice, and processing. There is provision for live accompaniment. The piece is in six sections, with text and voice contributed by Joanne Reid and the composer. Produced with the generous assistance of composer/producer Kevin Austin at the Concordia Electroacoustic Studio and MetaMusiQuébec Son (Montréal, Québec). JT
