Join Antandra & Swamp Music for an exciting journey through the volcanic chasms of the northern boglands!
"The Metamorphic EP has a volcanic theme influenced by my travels to Iceland. During my time there, I saw snow covered volcanic peaks, black sand beaches and glaciers. I also visited the Lava Centre, which had simulations of volcanic activity and tectonic movement. Iceland has extraordinary land formations, and often it felt as if being on another planet. My trip was during the Summer Solstice, and I experienced 23h/day of sunlight the entire time, which was awe inspiring and surreal.
Track three, Liquid, was made on the plane and while in Iceland. I went to an ice cream shop in downtown Reykjavik, and there was a kid who was exclaiming excitedly about the liquid nitrogen machine. Every time the machine was turned on and steaming, he would run up to the counter and shout, “Look, liquid!” His enthusiasm was contagious, and it seemed as though it connected all the patrons at the shop regardless of language barriers or cultural differences. I wanted to capture the moment, so I took a short video which I later sampled into audio, chopped up, and time stretched beyond recognition."
This album is most accurately described for me using the words of Rust Cohle; when I listen to it, "I [feel like] I'm mainlining the secret truth of the universe." Yet the void of all that we could ever dream to be and will be, assumed only through present knowledge, is ever expanding. The familiarity in a web of emotional waves, yet a sonic soundscape that continuously unfolds into uncharted territory, vast possibilities, and new worlds. If you can take away anything, it's Sixis' power to give you perspective and perhaps a clear detachment from self to wander into a dark void of thrilling possibilty. stinga_bee
The way you master these tracks to create depth and spatial reasoning is phenomenal. Im an aspiring music maker and you are of few creators, for me, who set the bar. Thanks for the inspiration! deltarayn
