"Sun Through Eyelids from New Zealand produces healing, trance inducing drones that reintroduce the consciousness to the collective Ether. Melancholic, immersive and tranquil in nature, one can easily be transported from this world.
Crown of Asteria's side of the split is inspired by the travels through the Northern Old Growth Forests of Michigan and the legend and Myths of the Manitou Islands. Mantiou is the spiritual and fundamental life force understood by Algonquian groups of Native Americans. It is omnipresent and manifests everywhere: organisms, the environment, events, etc. Aashaa monetoo = “good spirit”, otshee monetoo = “bad spirit”. The Great Spirit, Aasha Monetoo, gave the land, when the world was created, to the Natives (in particular, the Shawnee).
Together these projects have brought the energy of each other's respective places of origin into one outlet. Honoring the natural world and every living thing. That is what you will find in Animism."
