More Info

Dive into the enigmatic world of raison d'tre, a mesmerizing music project masterminded by the Swedish composer and sound artist, Peter Andersson. Renowned for his profound ability to conjure immersive auditory landscapes, Andersson's raison d'tre has left an indelible mark on the ambient and dark-industrial genres. At the core of "raison d'tre" lies a philosophy deeply intertwined with the exploration of existential themes and the mysteries of human consciousness. Andersson's sonic tapestries are intricate and multi-layered, weaving a delicate web of dark ambient, drone, and experimental sounds. The compositions are meticulously crafted, with each note and texture contributing to a greater narrative that evokes a profound sense of immersion and contemplation. The vinyl reissue of Aprs Nous Le Dluge marks the beginning in the ongoing story of the project. Originally released on Sound Source in 1992, the album's title translates to "After Us, the Deluge," a phrase often attributed to Madame de Pompadour, suggesting an impending catastrophe. This sentiment echoes throughout the album, as it conjures sonic landscapes that are both foreboding and introspective. From the somber tones to the ethereal drone, Aprs Nous Le Dluge encapsulates raison d'tre's ability to evoke emotions that reside in the shadows of our psyche. Aprs Nous Le Dluge is more than an album; it's a sonic meditation. The gradual evolution of sounds, the interplay of ambient elements, and the delicate nuances create an immersive experience that demands your full attention. Whether experienced through headphones or on a grand stereo system, the vinyl reissue breathes new life into this iconic release, allowing you to discover new dimensions within its familiar depths. Urashima Records' meticulous attention to detail is evident in the pristine audio quality and the exquisite packaging of this reissue. The vinyl itself becomes a portal to another world, inviting you to immerse yourself fully in raison d'tre's evocative sonic universe. This reissue captures the essence of the original work while adding a touch of modern refinement, making it a must-have for both dedicated fans and those new to the world of raison d'tre.
