More Info

Music like an occult electro-acoustic nightmare-earplay ! Really sinister! Welcome to NIKO SKORPIOS theatre!

"Half Born in Half Light" is based on the foundations of psychedelic ambient soundscapes and darkly majestic bass drone, over which tribal rhythms and magickal vocal invocations build grotesque alien monoliths whose angles mock the euclidean mathematics of conventional composition. Niko Skorpio is not restricted to one particular genre, but draws on many sources. This makes the music colourful and diverse, yet it remains coherent and has the artists unique fingerprints all over (this time literally in the cover as well). If we are to give it a label, lets call it 'Hermetic Fusion Musick'. CD comes with gorgeously designed 12-panel leaflet with art, photos, liner notes etc. Edition of 1000 copies."

Visionary, experimental, magickal and evocative, the new work by Niko Skorpio Half Born in Half Light is a blend of ritualistic scenarios and music experimentations. What impressed me most is the balanced sound mix and the crispness of sounds. This ability into giving the right space to sounds help a lot the creation of a functioning audio world where the listener is surrounded by hypnotic a semi psychedelic atmospheres. [Chain D.L.K.]
