  • Record/Vinyl

    Limited edition of 250 hand numbered copies. Comes in a gatefold sleeve with one-page insert.

    Originally released on cd in 2011 by ant-zen, we are proud to present
    the re-edition of this classic act this time pressed in a double LP Vinyl.

    Organic.aural.ornaments is based mostly on track-sources from Manabu supplemented by Sal-ocin. Both artists´ aural characteristics merge perfectly:
    Shinkiro´s cinematic dark soundscapes with a meditative touch blend with Empusae´s haunting ritualistic ambience and enthralling melodies, varied rhythmic structures ranging from tribal to minimalistic sequences loom out of the vast, lamenting synth sounds- a kaleidoscope of ethereal atmospheres, both enthralling and enchanting.

    This work contains 2 bonus tracks (ornaments) and comes presented as a 2 x LP on gatefold cover + insert
    The new version was totally remastered by Manuel G.Ritcher at Leaf Studio.
    Artwork by Salt (ant-zen)
    Limited & handnumbered Edition of 250 copies.

empusae is a project created by sal-ocin who is also a member of various other projects such as this morn' omina, tzolk'in, project arctic and also works as a live member of ah cama-sotz and in slaughter natives. sal-ocin is always open-minded about working together with other artists, as can be heard on this album: a liaison with manabu hiramoto a.k.a. shinkiro from osaka, japan who collaborated with artists like contagious orgasm, hybryds and jack or jive, and who has also made releases under the name kotodama.

organic.aural.ornaments is based mostly on track-sources from manabu supplemented by sal-ocin. both artists' aural characteristics merge perfectly: shinkiro's cinematic dark soundscapes with a meditative touch blend with empusae's haunting ritualistic ambience and enthralling melodies. varied rhythmic structures ranging from tribal to minimalistic sequences loom out of the vast, lamenting synth sounds - a kaleidoscope of ethereal atmospheres, both enthralling and enchanting.

in sal-ocin's words, the term 'organic' fits perfectly concerning the result of this collaborative work. two artistic minds fused into one, creating a movie without visuals or dialogue. organic.aural.ornaments is waiting for you to step through the frame and into an imagined world, and we highly recommend taking the chance.
