Olga Komok is a leader of the group LATERNA MAGICA that performs medieval music In this project the authentic medieval songs of XIII century were combined with contemporary breath-noise music.

In the program CANTIGAS DE SANTA MARIA performed by breath -noise group NOISES of RUSSIA & OLGA KOMOK (the leader of the medieval music collective LATERNA MAGICA) the authentic Spanish music of XIII-XIV centuries is placed into the dramatic sound landscape of the modern urban civilization.
Old Spanish spiritual songs (cantigas) singing to the accompaniment of wheel lyre (it's a modern copy of XIV century instrument) are accompanied by harmonic polyphonies (so-called landscapes), noises (music concrete), industrials sounds and rhythms.

CANTIGAS DE SANTA MARIA is a collection of 427 carefully copied and skilfully illustrated "cantiga" songs (a genre of old Spanish poetry about the miracles of Virgin Mary). It's not only anthology of poetic masterpieces composed in Galician-Portuguese language by the Spanish king Alfonso X, but also invaluable dictionary of the medieval music language and important statute book of iconographic documents that allow us to reconstruct the toolkit, used by ancient musicians, the way of performing songs and the details of court and religious feasts and everyday life of XIII century Spain.

CANTIGAS DE SANTA MARIA is a monument of medieval culture and cult of Mother of God, which was the most important for Catholics in Middle Ages and is still alive nowadays. Cantigas tell about the different miracles of Virgin Mary: how She defeated basilisk and dragon in Toledo, how She saved drunk monks from the river near Salamanca, how She cured dying horse, how She catholicized Jews and exorcised the devil from the girl. Each story is full of true faith in the infinite mercy. Every tenth story is a the song of praise dedicated to Mother of God.
