Winter-Light welcomes Nam-Khar back for their third sonic venture on our label, this time collaborating with fellow German artists Vortex (Tesco Organisation, :Ikonen: Media, Cyclic Law).
In 2020, the German ritual ambient bands Nam-Khar and Vortex joined forces to draw inspiration from the Nag Hammadi scriptures and their spiritual and cultural context. They fused their distinctive sounds to create a careful interpretation of the source texts from a pan-religious and spiritual perspective, resulting in hypnotic soundscapes and rhythm-patterns.
The idea of this album concept is to keep up the spirit of ancient and mostly forgotten paths of wisdom to a contemporary audience. It is dedicated to the spiritual seeker.
Hypnotic percussion, spoken word and dark ambience, interlaced with industrial elements and atmospherics, make 'Nag-Hammadi' a stand out album in the genre.
Nam-Khar - Peter Prochir (sounds, electronic, loops, drums), Konchok Gyaltsen (analogue & digital electronics, programming, drums & percussion)
Vortex - Marcus Stiglegger (vocals, additional percussion, sounds and field recordings, digital electronics), Carsten Bergemann (analogue electronics, sounds)
Mastering by Robin Storey/Rapoon
