“In the modern world, the social and cultural ethos has taken the ambiguities in life to another level. The more one experiences and learns of it, the less one feels fundamental ethics and it’s harder to identify or justify any incontestable moral laws. The figure of human being, ripped from its own identity, which was once driven by simple and basic will, becomes rather a silhouette than a true being – with no solid essence inside the monochromatic shape. To avoid an inevitable inner conflict, one disguises itself as an entity which is fully and paradoxically immersed into this source of conflict – the ethos of new world. However, if there is no true affinity towards it – besides this basic defense mechanism – the inner conflict becomes even more unbearable. As a result, the personality falls into total atrophy and the final step of this is obviously a catastrophe.
Recorded in oblivion of 2019.”
“Making a loop around a cluster of yellow dwarfs, red giants and interstellar gas, the launched satellite returns to the Solar System once a year with a selection of the most important discoveries. On board is a traditional New Year’s gift — a carefully assembled compilation of tracks from 2021.
We immensely appreciate the professionalism of the musicians and the dedication of everyone involved in the evolution of the project! Let the next earth cycle become the personification of love and care for everyone! The adventure continues!”
“TOTEM is Abu Ama‘s most personal and most varied release to date, a heavy trip through his musical ways, moments and directions, a stunning album that has been in preparations and waves of reiterations for almost as long as the earliest incarnations of some of the songs were done and, finally, towards the end of 2021, reached the stable form, monumentized on a limited edition of two c90 tapes. ”
