experimental music and sound art from Oulu, Finland

I.corax is a duo formed in the late 1998 and is part of the Helixes collective from day one. Through long and intensive recording sessions and energetic live performances, I.corax has been since beginning reaching towards unexplored musical pathways and mystical experiences.
The intention and driving force of the duo has always been to reach the purest possible states and modes of expression. The personnel, AIH & JKV, consider themselves as seekers or explorers, trying to express and manifest by means of sonic-symbols the spectral phenomena found in the moment.

Out now: I.corax Cella Phantasma, CD & C-40

Aural Hypnox welcomes I.corax to the label roster. We will eventually reprint the entire I.corax back catalogue, but to initiate the series we are thrilled to present Cella Phantasma, an album consisting of previously unreleased material dating back to a time before the birth of the Blue Sector label.

The material on 'Cella Phantasma' originates from the very first I.corax sessions held in the surroundings of Oulu in 1999. The album offers an archeo-astronomical account of the spectral phenomena found at that particular time. The sessions or states of 'Cella Phantasma' were heavily influenced by numerous mystical experiences that took place during various night-time wanderings and ritual retreats, which more than often included exceedingly vigorous and intimidating encounters with the Visitors from beyond. The primitive electro-acoustic manifestations arising from such experiences are brought forth in a characteristically eerie lo-fi atmosphere, composed using a minimal selection of instruments.

The album is available in two editions: 350 CDs and 50 cassettes. Both editions include three hand-finished photo prints, a textual insert and silk-screen printed cardboard covers. Total running time: 36:16.
