about

ANAMNESIS | ONE

A further exposition from the Palace of Mirrors: First in a series of four tape editions. Each one named after and based off one of the four pieces that make up the album 'Palace of Mirrors'. Each presenting a specific modality and conceptual form related to the piece of music it is named after. Each track on Palace of Mirrors represents the distillation of several versions of the compositions through various methods and forms and these recordings represent that process.

The albums tracks each have a corresponding sigil, created by Stephen Wilson, which are herein used to mark each set of material, each tape, linking it to it's specific parent track. Essentially marking doors that lead to different chambers where you will find the world that the pieces inhabit.

Throne of Light draws from the symbolism of Jungian psychology and archetypes which further delve into various rebirth and transformation mythologies. Unfold the titles and you will find illumination.

The download will also include the album version of Throne of Light (bonus track) and a remix/reinterpretation of the same, created by Tim Condon of Fresh Snow, bookending the other tracks.

about

Gates

GATES is a undefinable musical entity emerging from the heart of modern experimental composition. Wielding abstractions harvested from the idioms of black, doom and death metal. Embedding them within an amalgamation of avant-garde approaches to prog rock, drone, noise and ambience.
