Originating from Turkey, Oceanvs Orientalis is an electronic artist who seeks to challenge the current landscape of electronic music. Having deeply researched and contemplated the history of humankind and the creation of our universe, he sees the origins of our music to lie in the east. He translates this story, channeling the archaeological music of our ancient past into his new and forthcoming album project ‘Ex Nihilo’ announced today with fifth album track ‘Age of Anima’.
Diving directly into the narrative of the album, ‘Age of Anima’ tells the story of our early ancestors, the first and long-lost land animal inhabitants of our world. Ruling earth for millions of years, the ‘Age of Anima’ came with the explosion of life, The Cambrian Explosion through which the first animalistic forms came, pre-dating the ice age. The earliest fossil forms date back to the ‘Age of Anima’. As the first track, pre-cursing the later release of the full album project, ‘Age of Anima’ is the first presentation of Oceanvs’ production prowess, blending naturally reverbed field recorded drum patterns and raw sax lines.
“As fifth song on the album ‘Age of Anima’ is set roughly 670 – 67 million years ago
in the earth’s history. It tells the story of the giant land animals, our mysterious lost ancestors
who ruled the world for millions of years before us. The song is meant take us on a journey
between the events of the Cambrian Explosion and the ice age. The rolling drums
were recorded mostly in an open field environment and the saxophones
were played by talented jazz musician, Ilhan Ersahin.”
Across the album project Oceanvs explores varying themes relative to the history of the universe from planetary scale to the human dimension. As his first thematic project and an album in the truest sense, he explores such themes via a ten-track melodic journey. Beginning right from the first point of creation, the big bang in title track ‘Ex Nihilo’, Oceanvs travels through the timeline that in turn saw the evolution of our planet and universe as it is today, whilst touching briefly on where we may end in the future.
Oceanvs Orientalis ‘Ex Nihilo’ will be released 30th January 2020 via Kanto Records
