This is a very special album, not just "ordinary" music, but an intense "sonic witchcraft" tool for shifting into the altered states of consciousness.
It can also be used as a powerful background music for breath-work and journeys with psychotropic plants.
It was conceived as a pre-recorded part for the drone music performance that took place in Minoriti Church in Maribor, on November 16th, 2019.
The album is published as one continuous piece, comprised of different sections that are marked by the accents on tingsha bell.
4. Bardo Plateaux
6. DMT Language
The idea behind "Monolit" is loosely inspired by the monoliths that appear in Clarke/Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey".
The aim was to research the rich sonority of low strings - double bass and cello, with special extended playing techniques and a playful idea of constructing the "language" of alien intelligence, similar as the one that many people report meeting under the influence of DMT.
It also draws inspiration from the droning sonority of Tibetan Tantric singing rituals, as performed by the Gyuto Monks.
"Monolit" explores artist's subjective ideas about the Bardo state, immersive vortexes of deeper trance states and the symbolic DMT language.
Relax, adjust the level to your preference - the loudest parts can excite and fill the whole room - use a good full range hi-fi system or listen on a good set of headphones in its entirety, as it is meant to be a "journey", an artistic ritual.
