Ceremonial 03:48


A series of drawings made with Indian ink and pen were imagined and drawn in 1976 by a young artist. His ambition was to initiate a great story, both fantastic and philosophical, full of mysteries, frights, sensualities, mysteries, alternating wanderings and epiphanies. A story that stages the friction of powerful opposing forces seeking to establish new balances. Populated with creatures from a forgotten mythology, each drawing sketched an episode of this saga. However, the work was not completed and was eventually reduced to a dozen rather enigmatic drawings. We therefore know little about what the complete story could have looked like. Originally, it was planned that a soundtrack would accompany each drawing. The whole was to form the body of an opera. Without going that far, we selected the drawing which seemed to us to be the most significant to imagine in sound impressions and music the situation which it tells. The 8 tracks focus on a particular section of the drawing. The album brings an additional dimension, cinematic and emotional. You can view the entire drawing via this link. (

Anantakara Brussels, Belgium

Anantakara , a Sanskrit word meaning "rendering boundless", is a Belgium based electro-acoustic project creating music since 2011. Philippe Wauman, the man behind, likes to describe himself as a sound calligrapher: making subtil blends of ambient, electronica, downtempo, ethnic, neo classical and jazz. To make the vastness dance with the innermost is at the heart of his inspiration. ... more
