Quote from label: "Mare Di Dirac are an Italian collective who create lo-fi, morbid, and sometimes ritual based sound that mix together elements field recordings, natural reverb, human voices, subtle electronics, and selection of instrumental / percussion matter taking in: old church organ, didgeridoo, Tibetan bells, marine trumpet, rain drum & other elements. Their sound falls somewhere between crude ritual ambience, murky grim drone matter, and dark ‘n’ dank sound art.” (Musique Machine Web Zine)
The ancient Greenlandic inuit’s legends spoke about Tupilak (or Tupilaq) as an assembly of various objects frabricated by shamanism for ritualistic chants.
This type of symbology brings to mind the fundamental concept of additive synthesis and union of various elements in the mixing process.
The compositional phases are the result of a long ritualistic process where any sound’s element are arranged to recreate the solid form of Tupilak.
TUPILAK is based on unusual method of composition, using particular kinds of instruments like: Marine trumpet, Waterphone, Gong, Didgeridoo & other ritualistic instruments and mixing with digital sound of granular synthesis & minimal noise of various analog electronic elements.
The recording techniques are made so as to generate a total immersion into the resonant body of instruments, to give to the listener a deep perception of sound waves."
Quote from label: "Fumes is the modern symbol of uncertainty principle. Our contemporary rite has been included into formulas, each formula is a method of composition and a sequence of chants [to rise fumes].
These are not simple sounds, this is a psychoactive experience that will surely bring you into the deepest parts of your consciousness.
After debut album ”Tupilaq”, Mare di Dirac are able to achieve an even deeper album that works in the | thin | parts of our senses.
This obscure tantric ritual sound has this time shifted a little further into the light, as ecstatic psychedelic components join with the familiar dark chants.
The flow should not be stopped, it should be felt without judgment and mental qualms."
