DarkEnsemble not assembling gloom but a gathering in an inspirational night.

Dark - not so much an absence of light as a prelude towards the light; a silence before the sound.


Ensemble - a coming together; not only of text and music but also of different artists. As profound listeners we are subject to intense auditory adventures.

Conceptual interest - all sounds are created equal. Or are some sounds more equal than others?

We question the traditional power balance: the acoustic dominance over the electronic, the human voice over the soundscape etc. Our recordings should challenge the hierarchical perception that is rooted in our traditions and cultural values.

Slip

 

Farewell. Roots en route

From history to future

Gripping substratum

Maturing is fortunate

Farewell line, lineage descent

Harvest

 

Leafs leave, in fall fall

Autumn’s ambering, coloring

warmth welcoming cold

 

Tawny hues dispersed

Blades burned by experience

Stained, stale and stamped out

 

The nerves visible

Aging’s transparent beauty

Hails befalling chills

 

Decay blows away

A whole new generation 

let loose in the wind
