StereOMantra first burst into a lot of people’s consciousness with his 2014 album, Projections, which he gigged from the UK to Hungary and along the way gathered up many a fellow traveller to join him and his digital art sensibilities. Clearly inspired by the experience he is now about to launch the follow up, the EP Heliocentric, on Free-Spirit Records.
Operating in the psy-chill sphere, StereOMantra produces enduring pieces of music that despite the throttled bpms contain many of the characteristics the more energetic ends of the spectrum do. Yes, while other-worldly and ethereal in nature so too does there bristle emotions threatening to break out and engulf the listener. Consisting of four tracks there clearly exists a progression from beginning to end with the final location distinctly distant to the beginning one. Cleverly hidden early it is by the final tune that the mood breaks wide open and a sense of enlightenment becomes apparent.
What is this enlightenment? My interpretation is that it is hidden in the name of the EP. As a model of the universe heliocentricism has the Sun at the centre round which all celestial bodies, including the earth, rotate but StereOMantra is debunking this theory by exhibiting there exists too other intangibles on metaphysical level determining our day-to-day experience so to have only one entity at the middle is overly simplistic and without philosophical consideration.
Well that was my enlightenment at least, what will be yours?
