Of Clear Light is the debut album by producer c o m t e.
A meditation on loss & grief, imagining the unknown, what worlds, sensations, we encounter during and after we cross over along with the feelings one experiences when someone leaves this earth.
Each track is seen as a path and the album in total, as a journey. Nothing begins, nothing ends, everything just moves in an unknown yet enlightning fashion. From the foggy unknown of ‘The Expanding Path’ the twists and turns of ‘In the Between’ to the strange clarity one encounters in ‘Lotus’. The familiarity of ‘Diamond Reality’ to what might be considered a restng place in ‘Arrival’.
Mixing organic field recordings, murky analog experiments and warbling synths, buried beneath textured grit & grain the tracks sit somewhere between ambient and dub techno.The aim of 'Of Clear Light' light is to create an emotional, mystical, uncertain, yet somewhat comforting journey. Recommended listening on headphones and preferably from start to finish.
