ARTEFACTUM - Sub Rosa
Wonderful esoteric beauty-drones from this female polish project, handmade covers using "decoupage"-technique, closed with pink ribbon (...)
First vinyl-release of the enchanting ARTEFACTUM project from Poland! Described by herself as "Female Esoterica", SUB ROSA opens a vast space filled with tons of different sounds coming from very far away, as nebulous melodies, whispers & voices & choirs, little clicks & cracks, with soft percussive structures appearing on Side B. The two pieces named ROSA ALBA and ROSA RUBEA (white & red rose) have a strong metaphorical alchemistic background, meaning the end point of all alchemistic transmutations. The overall release including the beautiful artwork gives the impression of an almost fabulous acoustic phantasy, so refined & almost caressing yet secretful at the same time. A record filled with "sonic magic" ! First edition comes in an edition of 300 copies on pink vinyl with special handmade covers using decoupage technique; covers closed with a pink bowed ribbon. Very recommended!
