To express their own bond with nature the band coined the term "Pagan Folk" for one style of their concerts. While the term was initially used for electronically amplified concerts only, it is now used by fans and band for their music itself. A quote by Oliver Pade reveals another possibility for having chosen this specific term: "We don't know ourselves what kind of music we play, so we call it paganfolk" Oliver Pade in a song announcement at the Summer Darkness in Utrecht , Netherlands.
Faun's repertoire ranges from melancholic ballads to exuberant dances like the Brittanic An Dro. Thereby they set historical tunes from various periods and regions to music and on the other hand create a lot of their own compositions as well. Mitra has described the essence of the band as a form of "musical alchemy ", due to the different musical interests of the members and how they are combined in Faun's music.
The instrumentation is kept entirely acoustic and waives modern instruments and electronic beats. Faun seek to promote a form of paganism they characterise as nature religion. They are however not hostile to Christian culture and are open to performing Christian songs.
They have stressed that many Christian traditions have a pagan origin or pagan components. Oliver s. Tyr has said that he is opposed to the church, but regards Christianity as a good religion and thinks it is better to be a Christian than to have no faith at all. The name Faun comes from ancient Greek - Roman mythology, where it equals the herders' deity Faunus or Pan. According to the band, this figure which is often also depicted as a natural or forestal spirit, shall express the members' connection with nature.
For the same reason Oliver Pade's pseudonym is the Satyr , who is closely related to Faunus. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Licht Faun Album. German band.
