ABOUT THE COLLECTIVE:
Progression in art is something that requires a complete abandon of sorts. It is that courageous step forward, right out of the box, in brazenly sure footing. ILLUMINARI represents the feminine principle in a world of duality. Our message is the light of existentialistic exploration and the clarity of inner truth. Our tool is the path of musical expression and artistic movement. We recognise that in this material reality, the masculine principle, the route of reaching
outward for truth, is the more active, dominant one, and so our purpose is to illuminate our listeners to release themselves from the hold of the overtly physical and discover the deeper, realer life within. If but only one person awakens this light within them, ILLUMINARI would have served its ultimate vision, to ignite the guidance of the heart and soul. This is the picture we are painting in all its audacity and what we believe our contribution is to the collective.
There is no mediocrity in what we are attempting to do. It is cutting edge sound, no more, no less. Our intent is to be as experimental as possible while balancing a core, natural melody that resonates with instinctive good feeling. Our debut album is a Trip Hop composition, which is a fusion of funk, soul, jazz with an urban drumming style, entitled "ILLUMINARI AT THE THRESHOLD" and it is a compilation of different esoteric information aligned to the 12 archetypal subjects of the astrological signs.
ABOUT THE ALBUM:
ILLUMINARI AT THE THRESHOLD
...is a title that on one hand describes it as being the debut album (the threshold, the beginning) and on the other, plays upon the guardian of the threshold, an imagery from the theosophical circles. The guardian is a being that guards the path to higher knowledge. It is the metaphorical place where you are checked on whether you have released all layers of judgment within yourself. If you are cleansed of all levels of that karmic impurity, you are then invited into the worlds of greater wisdom and lightness.
Therefore the album’s message and purpose is to help the listeners prepare for that moment where one meets the symbolic guardian and be ready to receive the higher worlds. It is also simply a message to just free yourself from the bondage of what you believe life’s expectations should be and take that step to understanding what existence is all about.
The album itself has been mastered by the grammy-nominated Emily Lazar, who was also the engineer for Björk, Paul McCartney, Wu Tang Clan, Prodigy, Foo Fighters, Garbage, Sia Furler amongst others. The mixing was done in Diablito Studios, by Diego Aguirre. Diablito Studios is a company co-owned by one of the members of Molotov, a famous Mexican rap group.
