about

Necromancy: Conjuration of the spirits of the dead for purposes of magically revealing the future or influencing the course of events.

This all-instrumental recording is not intended to be listened to as a casual, plastic pop album. It is an audio abstraction, designed to construct an image in the listener's conscious and subconscious mind. Like any abstract work of art, these images are up to individual interpretation, but they are grounded in certain themes: Death, rebirth, and the perils encountered in between. This recording is as much a ritual as it is a work of art. It was conceived in the spaces between waking and dream. Many ghosts were conjured during its creation and lurk within the drones and dissonance found herein. Stimulate your pineal gland for an optimal listening experience.
