CONTEMPLATRON - ma mo [CD]
On the fourth album of his Indo-Tibetan series Contemplatron uncovers from their ashes the world of the charnel grounds, cemeteries and demonic or saintly beings who lived there. The Tibetan word mamo is a non-literal translation of the Sanskrit word 'matri'. In India matris, literally 'mothers', are female indigenous spirit-deities of the natural world. They are benevolent or malevolent - thus they can be potentially dangerous to humans and other beings. The matris are intimately associated with fertility and sickness, life and death. The main medium of communication, invocation, appeasement or protection against them is the mantra. Over one hour of ritual dark ambient served in luxurious gold foil-blocked digipak and mastered by Peter Andersson (Raison d'etre).
