Recorded at the same time as its predecessor, "Return to Auratia" captures the chilly, arctic essence of the original, dubbed out to infinity. A sonic world all its own!

"Auratia" is made entirely with hardware, paying homage to infinite forms of synthesis, from analog, dco, waveshaping, vector, there's a myriad of forms explored producing unique results. Vintage analog equipment in conjunction with innovative customized modular synthesizers winnow a basis for algorithmic structure improvisation. This sound experiment re-synthesizes from a current plane into altered planes of effects-a radically new experience that breaks down barriers. Ghostly harmonics fold and unfold like symmetrical patterns in nature to generate a myriad of complex and infinite rhythmic lines. Tessellations for higher dimensions, this mosaic of melody delivers an eccentric experience. Something for the heads in search of sonic meditation with 2 near 60 minute infinite pieces of organic dub grooves with an emphasis on synthesis experimentation and out-of-this world sonic apparitions.

"What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness." -M. C. Escher

Another absolutely superb excursion into the dubbed out, hazy electronic world of Variant!! Deep as the ocean and layers of sound that are truly captivating. It's hard not to get totally lost in this album as it is so relaxing and absorbing. Beautifully done!!
The packaging is really good as well =)
