SUM OF R “Orga” CD/2LP (97th Cycle)
Switzerland’s Sum Of R led by Reto Mäder (RM74) and accompanied by Fabio Costa create slow moving instrumental sonics with a sensibility for hypnotic and complex song structures. “Orga” is an immersive voyage into a shapeshifting mist of raw-boned melodies and repetitive mantras. The album is a hybrid of ritual drums and eerie percussions, atmospheric analog electronics and epic drones forming a drifting orchestral wall of sound. Darkness, light and its reflections is what emerges from this mysterious aural mist. Cover photography by Milena Kancheva.
CD Edition of 1000 copies (Co-released with Czar Of Revelations). 11 Tracks. Running Time 58:23.
2LP Edition of 500 copies. Thick 180g vinyl in Gatefold sleeve with Bonus CD. LP and Bonus CD includes 2 Extra tracks. 13 Tracks Running Time 71:44.
New volume by Austrian analog photographer KRIST MORT. Following her highly acclaimed “Inlumaeh” Book where we saw a more chronological overview of the general aesthetics of her past body of work, she now presents us “Tera”, a more focused conceptual photographic exploration of the primal origins the human body. Six chapters take us through the cycles of birth and decay, portraying bodies as more abstract shapes turning into desolate landscapes. Bodies rooted in earth, evolving to their intend forms to eventually decay and disintegrate to their origins, back to soil. A poignant metaphor on life and death and the universe’s governing cycles, uniquely rendered through her very particular photographic eye.
Limited Edition of 300 copies. 128 pages. Hardcover with Blind Debossing on a light grey natural cardboard. Special Lay flat binding. 18x24cm, Matte Finish.

New full lenght by PETER BJÄRGÖ "Animus Retinentia" CD (90th Cycle)
3rd full length album by ARCANA / SOPHIA mastermind Peter Bjärgö. On his solo works we hear the perfect blend of his previous incarnations where dreamy piano parts, rhythmic percussions and his now trade mark acoustic guitar, all blended into perfection. Solemn vocals filled with lyrics of distress and mournfulness lull us into the nether. Filled with nostalgia and longing of a lost world, "Animus Retinentia" forms a threshold into another world where glimpses of light always shine through. A splendid follow up to his previous solo works and dare we say, his best yet. Edition of 500 copies in 6 panel Digipack. 11 Tracks. Running Time 45:55
