The etymology of the project title, Incandescent Void, is somewhat synonymous with space - the false void and darkness that is seemingly space, interspersed by the incandescent - the celestial bodies. Releases: Aether et Umbra (2008) [full length] Sonorous Resonations From The Thoughtless Depths Of Irreversible Spacetime (2007) [EP] Dissolution Within The Empyreal (2007) [full length] The first release, Dissolution Within The Empyreal, is primarily an experimentation into minimally produced, atmospheric, textured, eerie, droning and chaotic constructs. It is somewhat crude in form, yet manages to evoke desired aesthetics efficiently. The second release, an EP entitled Sonorous Resonations From The Thoughtless Depths Of Irreversible Spacetime, focuses on the spatial dronings of space - it has been described as the sound of the chemical reactions within a nebulae - as such it is primarily amorphous in form, relying on dynamic sounds to evoke a sense of 'space drone'. The third release, Aether et Umbra, is much more varied and complex than the previous releases, of unprecendented quality since the dawning of Incandescent Void, it is considered the first true album of the project, and is also the longest release since the first two, allowing a more complete experience. The general concept of the album is as follows: Aether et Umbra is somewhat synonymous with light and dark.
The aether, that which is like clearness and light, or more literally the medium of heaven [the sky] and often used in reference to the celestial, and umbra, which is dark, a shade or shadow. Thus concept of the album is to bring contrast to both of them, and more precisely bring a challenge to the listener in interpreting such values. One must face the oppressive umbra in order to be rewarded with the aetherial. Throughout the album ones own interpretation of this theme of contrasting values is allowed through seemingly amorphous textures, and in other times more clearly defined dynamics.
Many themes are to be had, should one be open to them. Aether et Umbra evokes a multilayered experience, deep in texture, sounds and atmosphere, formulating a deeper sense of spatiality, forming dissonant and engulfing eeriness. Read more on Last.fm.
