Astrovia & Derek Nigell - World of Specular Loomings

Record: 2018 • Edition: 2018 • USC-WR-1808.0410
Berlin School, Ambient

Imagine yourself an entity of light... You are born in the radiant worlds and get into the place most attractive for you – the realm of glass, crystal and mirrors... The real game of optical illusions begins. Refraction, bundle into many colors and scattering on thin and sharp edges. You are so fascinated... You turn into myriads of self copies, shine and spray in all directions with sunbeams. Looking at your own reflections, you find strange memories in the depths of your bright memory: you flew for a long time across the boundless space, skirted the galaxies and played a ghost penumbra under the tree crowns on the unknown planets. Or it was not you, but your brothers bearing the light, with whom you are inseparable, like the light is inseparable and complete in the Universe... Or maybe it all just seemed to you in this strange world – in a world of specular loomings...
