XVARR ‎– Echoes Of Time

$18.00

In Echoes of Time, Xvarr presents four flawless, formless, dynamic entries into his expansive inner universe. Each arrives from a precise intention and at a distinct moment during his spell on planet earth. They find loving space once again in the arms of Good Morning Tapes, this time on vinyl.

Returning to his archives, the synthetist and mystic expands two workings from the mixtape offering Serpent Power (GMT13). “Past Masters” revolves around an echoing experiment with metallic tones from around 1992, assuaged by a hydrous drone. Channeling the balanced unbalance of youthful anger and purity (or maybe naivety), its purpose is to honor and juxtapose the “vitality” of past, discarded Selves with present iterations. Also referenced on Serpent Power is the title track "Echoes of Time," composed on the Buchla Easel in 2018. Through its anti-gravity melodic sequences the listener receives a message of serenity and hope, an invitation to temporarily “transcend the trappings of linear time.”

Joining these adaptations are “She Healed Him in Her Sleep,” previously planned for CD release in 2009, and “Terminal Manoeuvre.” Composed following a transformative trip to India, “She Healed Him” explores the twinned themes of “the restorative dimension of love and the mystical role of sleep” with slowed, cinematic chordal changes in infinitesimal interval. “Terminal Manoeuvre” settles a seraphic synth melody over undulating drone and is “designed to instil a sense of nostalgia and longing for respite from this terrestrial bondage.” Harmonious artwork is provided by Xvarr’s complement, Egypte Erotique.
