Halo Manash ‘Unetar’ CD
All audio material on this album originates from the “Tulitania” private ritual held in the deepest forest of Northern Ostrobothnia in December 2006.
“Unetar”, an entity awakening after a decade-long hibernation was evoked by Anti Ittna H. in the somniferous Katajan Kaiku studio during January and March 2016. The album’s opening track “Unetar” also features a spectral appearance of JKV captured on tape right after the ritual in 2006.
The first two liminal hymns were weaved together on the night of Total Solar Eclipse, 9th of March 2016. This CD edition also includes the original “Tulitania” version, that previously appeared on the “Desert Space” compilation album released by Tosom 2007.
The album is enclosed in an oversized, screen printed covers including three insert cards. Limited to 400 copies.
Aural Hypnox ‘Underworld Transmissions’ CD
Underworld Transmissions was Aural Hypnox label series, filmed and captured on tape in the private séances held in our subterranean lodge located in Oulu, Northern Ostrobothnia.
The concept was to invite artists from the Helixes collective, in different combinations, to join a séance and to establish through sound and movement an elemental communication. In greater sense, apart from personal goals, these séances aimed to bring forth the seasonal currents of the lodge; the undertone of the Aural Hypnox label and the artists involved.
Each séance was guided by a unique automatic-portal-portrait reflecting the planetary and stellar distances seen at that particular time in the lodge altar mirror-receiver.
All audio was captured live on tape by using binaural recording technique. Films were captured during séances and also in the preceding and subsequent sessions that took place in Other Rooms and in the surrounding wilderness.
The candles have been extinguished; transmissions completed.
Underworld Transmissions CD edition is housed in an oversized, screen printed cardboard covers and includes a 16-page xeroxed booklet. Limited to 150 copies.
Both of the new albums are now completed and will be available for order tomorrow!
On an almost weekly basis we are requested to make releases available in a digital form and with the forthcoming releases we are going to take the very first steps.
For the very first time in the label history the new albums are included with a Bandcamp download codes. The digital download edition will include a CD-quality audio, high resolution scans of the original covers and inserts. If you are using a Bandcamp application you will be able to stream the album without a need for downloading.
However, at this point of time we are not going to offer “digital-only” albums, as the mark of handicraft is something we have always considered to be crucial for the all-encompassing experience.
