“Sound impressions and cinematic music on an episode of the enigmatic saga, full of mysteries, frights, sensualities and mysteries, alternating wanderings and epiphanies. A tale that stages the friction of powerful opposing forces seeking to establish new balances. Populated with creatures from forgotten mythology…”
“Ashta means eight in Sanskrit, the sacred language of India. The album is composed of eight valleys to be crossed, associated with fine stones.
Seven moments of a journey towards an eighth, the accomplishment, or enlightenment. It is the staggering progression found in all traditions that have been the common thread of this project.
The theme of Ashta is based on an ancient Iranian mystical poem.”
“An album that all fans of electronic music, seekers of ambience and worshipers of truly artistic tones will adore, it’s a journey that never ends, but one that will create layer upon layer of expectation, intent and anticipation as you listen. ” (Steve Sheppard)
This experimental album is a strange object: a somewhat metaphysical journey to the edge of worlds at once harsh, incandescent and enigmatic. The music was composed between 2015 and 2019, it is the thread of an odyssey that brings them together here: When the immutable dreams of becoming mutable…
This album brings together a whole series of compositions that have not been published. They are part of a moment of my creation, my way of exploring certain myths, shamanic dimensions where life coexists with death in an initiatory complicity. A double temporal dimension which sends us back to the mystery of existence.
Transmuted By is indeed a masterwork of crafted genius by the artist Anantakara. For me personally its music I adore, it allows us as listener’s vast areas of musical room to explore and navigate. There can be no doubt that the minimalistic ambiance that this album bathes in, and also creates, would be a harmonious and atmospheric backdrop with which to manifest other works of art to and an album that fans of long-form ambient music are going to literally lap up.” (Steve Sheppard)
Spring is life returning, but before welcoming it, thought for all that has disappeared in the great day of the times before. I wrote this album in 2012 to salute three disappearances of relatives, a mother, a friend, an artist… The music was then a beam and a declaration of love. the fine thread that transcends oblivion and absence.
