More Info

" "Lux Ova" is a compilation album of my old recordings in the middle 90's before my first release "To Fill Up All The Coeloms By Radiance" in 1998 (re-released as "Sacrifice + Phosphorus" under "Spiracle" pseudonym in 2000).
"To Fill Up All The Coeloms By Radiance" was made with a particular theme 'catastrophe sound action' and 'initiation' in relatively a short period in 1997.
However I had remembered that a lot of other solo recordings had been blindly made mostly on cassette tapes between a so-called band period until 1995 and the "sound action" period in 1997.

While digging up the mass of cassette tapes, I had discovered some blindly therefore free and honest recordings that contained fertile texture like a origin of the sea, and few of them already sounded like later works as Spiracle.
I gathered them first, and treated on a computer to unify the utterly disconnected feelings of each recording, then compiled them to an album, and brought them back to a cassette tape again for the release.

The original sounds seem to be produced by acoustic instruments and organic materials such as voices, flutes, guitars, metals, ceramics, wind, water. However they were all melted into a mass of textures and tones through various effectors, and had simmered in samplers and a multi track tape recorder until they became bright coloured thick fractal soup.

The artwork in the folded insert was taken from colour pencil drawings birth of stars and medium that had been also blindly made between 1998 and 1999." [label info]
