Ataraxia commented: “The Genius Loci is a natural and spiritual entity living and protecting a peculiar place. Our soundscapes are protected by the Spirits of the places inspiring our music. Watching the video, you will be able to listen to several album excerpts and float in the energy of the untamed areas inspiring them.”
“We have always wished to come back to the world of Great Gods
portals between worlds, vision-form, seams of Gold
Immense grains of the cosmos to which we belong
we have always wished to come back home
through the ether turning into Light
Masters of flight, Masters of freedom, Master of Mastery”
“Pomegranate – The Chant Of The Elementals” takes the listener on a unique musical journey, in a mystical walk through space-time between the past, the present and the future.
