This is a very special album, not just “ordinary” music, but an intense “sonic witchcraft” tool for shifting into the altered states of consciousness.
It can also be used as a powerful background music for breath-work and journeys with psychotropic plants.
It was conceived as a pre-recorded part for the drone music performance that took place in Minoriti Church in Maribor, on November 16th, 2019.
The album is published as one continuous piece, comprised of different sections that are marked by the accents on tingsha bell.
Constructed as a voyage through different stages, it begins with preparations for the departure—like a hero gathering his forces and setting intention—then slowly guides you out of the ordinary world. Explore different aspects of yourself and the Universe as the music builds to a rising of internal power, bringing about a catharsis as it gently leads you back “home” again—changed, enriched, and empowered, with a different view of reality and appreciation for life.
Locus Solus was originally conceived as a special immersive, multi-channel live sound-and-music performance in the dark for a single visitor. Nimetu plays the acoustic instruments all around the listener, and at different distances in the performance space.
A special minimalist recording of solo flute music – “Spirit Flute Journeys”, plus a track of a magic kalimba “invocation”.
The approach was to let go of (pre)conceptions about music and simply dig deep into the subconscious to create the atmosphere of tranquillity, freedom and distance from the daily “drama”.
Silhueta is the original soundtrack composed for the dance performance “Silhueta” by Tina Dobaj, premiered on 25.november, 2016 in Minoriti Church in Maribor.
There are three additional outtakes included on the album, that were not used in the actual performance, but were recorded at the same time or used as inspiration (Vortex of Blue) for the final soundtrack.
This is a work of love and devotion!
