Mahi Bukimi – The Eclipse of Planet’s Beauty [SLNT011]

“There's no reality except the one contained within us. That's why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.” Hermann Hesse. This album is a modest try of returning the spirit of Renaissance into the present age. 'The Eclipse of Planet’s Beauty' is about all of us - about extinction of nature and going deeper and deeper into the virtual world, about cruel wars and modern philosophy, humanism in nowadays perception and nuclear sunsets, ancient mythologies and cities of the future – the things we are facing often feeling strange or unanswered, but the things we are rushing toward like into the first summer rain. This artwork is some kind of reply to this so fast changing world, or maybe to our so morphing way of life. Sometimes the ages of past are much more closer than they appear and the delicate sculptures are much more alive than it may seem. The same as heavenly bodies change their orbits, slowly but insuperable, civilizations are moving round, some of them still afraid of themselves. It's like seeing the moon in the sky by day through the gentle resistance of crystal ice, like watching the stars in the antique observatory lying in deep grass. It's like a glass sphere in the storm, like an organ prelude passing through the waves of biosphere. Let the music describe all this feelings the best.
