Icarus_asylum, mixes organic electronic ambience immersion with jazz narratives in soundscapes built from guitar-driven themes enveloped by segments from old ceremonies, ritual dances and natural sounds. It was constructed over 7 years and the 5 pieces should be listened sequentially, as in the complete album.
Two concepts underline the music themes, also naming the album: the longing for spiritual refuge in the asylum of sound during an age when many, most of us, are displaced from homes and roots; the sense of existential failure resembling the fall of Icarus – whilst nobody is taking any notice – like in this still relevant today Renaissance painting by Bruegel.
