More Info

Although 'Athanor' drifts between a variety of different styles, all tracks have a spiritual and spooky atmosphere. The magic sound of 'Athanor' consists of strange and organic samples, dreamy patterns, mysterious sound effects, whispered voices, tribal rhythms, droning cosmic synthchords, bells, ethnic flutes... Some tracks are electronic and sequenced and slightly song-stuctured, others are more organic and improvised.

"Ceremonial, tribal, shamanistic-the aesthetic is there but the members of TEMPS PERDU? aren't content with just adding themselves to the ethno-rank and file. Indescribable electronics merge with strangely pulsing rhythms and other esoteric sound effects to yield the sacred cybernetic mantras for these evolutionary, technological times." DARREN BERGSTEIN, i/e Magazine [USA]
