about

ANAMNESIS | TWO

A further exposition from the Palace of Mirrors: Second 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.

"This Door Is Forbidden" wanders deep into the infinite library of the unconscious, beckoning you into its corridors. Hexagonal dimensions unfolding. You will be guided by unseen forces through passageways in the fathomless realms of the void.

The download will also include the "Palace of Mirrors" album version track "This Door is Forbidden" and a collaborative reinterpretation of the same, created by CETACEA, CARES & HEXZUUL bookending the other tracks. This reinterpretation has three distinct sections by each artist that is woven together to create a single three part piece.

Track Name: This Door Is Forbidden (corridor edit)
Here, contains all to be known
Between walls lost to fathomless air
Phrases etched
Among walls of dust
Hidden volumes
In this presence of unseen divination
Distance to feed the hunger

Afraid of the light

Scepters through the hallways
Guided by unseen passages
We dwelt here in radiant light
Given, to the urge for disappearance

Faces come forth
Now they are lost to me
