Alka translates frequencies into moods. A blending (and bending) of electronic styles, his output has been variously described over the years as IDM, Ambient, Occultronica, and Witch-Glitch. Alka’s production process is akin to an alchemical experiment, directly and indirectly incorporating esoteric practices adapted for musical creation. The result is simultaneously vast enough for wide open spaces and/or condensed urban settings. It is the place where lucidity and obscurity meet.
Multiple :: Multi-faceted as crystal. We saw this day come and go, like shards of colored light. The planets rise and fall, to nothing… to darkness. The stars glow in sync; appearing multiple | singular | modular | linear.
“They move through the firmament which is the colour of a ‘terrible crystal’, and around a throne like sapphire, on which sits Metatron, suffused in the radiance of the rainbow.” – Peter Lamborn Wilson
