More Info

FILIVS MACROCOSM is the solo-project of Sergey Svistelnik aka Lord Gorgoroth from Ukraine, who is also a member of IN MEDITARIUM (known to all Droneheads through our Drone 7" release we hope!). This is a poetic & dreamy transformation of Tarkovsky masterpiece STALKER, using many original sounds from the film as a basis, effecting and processing the sounds and also dissolving them into noisy parts at times....

"Stalker is an elaborate puzzle. Its pieces are always scattered, and Filivs Macrocosmi relies on his listener to bring the final element of the puzzle along with him. One of Stalker's many treats is that it invites you to get carried away into your own thoughts, flowing with the images as it provides new questions to ponder... In that sense, the album is very much like a philosophical poem: a very simple surface covering innumerable layers of meaning. One extremely long ride in a cart, with clunking metal and water-whooshing sounds, is fascinating and hypnotic. FM downplayed the science fiction aspects of the movie, making the album more about philosophical and spiritual concerns leaving us at the threshold of the Room where all our most cherished desires come true. Welcome to your Self, an alien place guarded by barbed wire... Package - 3-panel fullcolor glossy paper cover. Ltd.ed. to 500." [label info]
