saklas Creation VI is on a whole 'nother level. Incredibly powerful stuff. Deep, in a word. An aural experience best likened to an encounter with the visceral, lunar, and organic divinity: shaddai el chai in some circles. Favorite track: Ancient Wind.

Benjamin Corby Ambient is an overcrowded space with the temptation to allure any old musical go-getter. There is nothing amateur about Creation VI. An ambient record is only as good as the number of plays before you move onto the next one. "Myth About Flat World" has a dynamic and aesthetic that keeps you thinking as well as relaxed. If you're lucky enough to have the physical release, there's a special place I. Your library for this record.

about

In one or another form, Myth about flat world existed from time immemorial in every civilization culture, from India to Scandinavia, always intertwined with other ideas about World. Like any myth, the Flat World is a symbol, difficult organized arcanum, meaning of which has never been clearly identified - for every point of time and space its secrets unfolded in unique way. At time when most myths are understood literally, and considered equal as amusing errors of ancestors, reading of this symbol becomes even more interesting. In the center of a flat Earth inhabited by mortals whose existence is limited to cycle of births and deaths, always rises symbol of the exit to a new, third dimension, way to another form of existence - great mountain (Meru, Olympus, Kailas), around which stars and planets are orbiting. In addition to this, there is a symbol of growth, evolution, continuous renovation and the interconnection of all living things - the great Tree (Yggdrasil, Iusaaset, Asvattha), growing at the top or beside the mountain. Tree roots and branches are connecting different worlds and juice flowing through its veins gives eternal life and absolute knowledge... At the top of a mountain, inhabited by all sorts of gods and sacred animals, streams with water of life are flowing and unseen plants are blooming. All of this makes the picture of Flat World surprisingly vivid and able to tell everything about secrets of the Universe, inspiring the search of analogies, bringing new vision of familiar fairytales and well-known legends. Creating this album, we wanted to reflect this myth's magic in sound, make it alive, able to induce imagination, finding new connections and meanings - to inspire the listener in creation of its own art... Let this music become a mirrored water surface for you, where one can see the shapes of something long forgotten, but at the same time very cognate and familiar.

****************************************

В том или ином виде, миф о плоской Земле существовал с незапамятных времен во всех цивилизациях, от Индии до Скандинавии, неизменно соседствуя другим представлениям о мире. Как и любой миф, Плоская Земля это символ, сложно организованный аркан, смысл которого никогда не был четко обозначенным - в каждом времени и каждом месте он раскрывал свои секреты по-новому. Сейчас, когда большая часть мифов понимаются буквально и приравниваются к забавным заблуждениям прошлого, книга его значений читается увлекательно, как никогда. В центре плоской Земли, населенной простыми смертными, чье существование ограничено циклами рождения и смерти, всегда возвышается символ выхода в третье измерение, путь к другой форме существования - великая гора (Меру, Олимп, Кайлас), вокруг которой обращаются светила и планеты. Кроме того, существует и символ роста, эволюции, непрерывного обновления и взаимосвязи всего живого - великое Древо (Иггдрасиль, Иусат, Ашваттха), растущее на вершине или у подножия горы. Корни и ветви Древа соединяют миры, сок, текущий по его жилам, дарует вечную жизнь и абсолютное знание... На вершине горы обитают всевозможные боги и священные животные, текут ручьи с живой водой и цветут невиданные растения. Все это делает картину мифа необычайно живой и способной немало рассказать о тайнах Вселенной, вдохновляя на поиск аналогий, позволяя по-новому взглянуть на привычные нам сказки и легенды. Создавая этот альбом, мы хотели отразить магию мифа в звуке, сделать его таким же живым, способным при каждом прослушивании создавать новые образы, находить неожиданные взаимосвязи, стимулировать воображение и вдохновлять на создание собственных произведений... Пусть эта музыка станет для вас зеркальной водной гладью, на поверхности которой можно увидеть очертания чего-то давно забытого, рассказать истории, хранящиеся в нашей общей памяти.
