earthMANTRA (eM) is proud to bring you the debut ambient recording by long-time electronic artist Christopher Alvarado - "Infinita". Chris has been making quality music for a number of years, so when he sent us an album for consideration on eM we were very excited to hear it. That first pass, however was not to be...the album was very beat oriented, and didn't fit in with the traditional ambient focus of the new earthMANTRA. Chris was disappointed, but said as soon as he had a complete ambient album ready to go, he'd send that over instead.
"Infinita" hit our mailbox about 2 weeks later, and we couldn't be happier with the result!
In Chris' own words:
The ambient body is a cloud or a form of mediation in Creation.
It's the beginning of a new day. As the sun rises across the planet, its light dwarfs the stars that have taken what seems forever to reach us. The immense forever that never seems to stop gives our universe a body in conciseness. That which seems like an endless body has blue blood royalty with it's galaxies as it's building blocks. Ending the vast blue skies when the moon lets the ancient light shine on us as we sleep for what seems to be an Infinity.
Please interpret this album as you see fit.
Thank you for taking the time to listen.
As with all eM releases, "Infinita" is free for download. If you choose to pay for the release, all funds go directly to the artist.
And that original album - a very cool excursion entitled "Creation by Inertia" - is available on Thomas Mathie's brilliant 'weareallghosts' label at the address below. Be sure to check it out!
