about

Those of you who closely follow taâlem will have noticed that back in 2014 there was no "alm 100" release. We wanted to make something special for this 100th reference but it's been long, veeeery long in the making. Finally, here it is.

This 100th reference is indeed be a bit special: it's the very first solo-release by Baraka[H], member of the legendary Troum and Maeror Tri bands, also head of the seminal Drone Records label.

Baraka[H] has created and collected through the years some tracks that were not used for Troum tracks. He went back to these tracks and completed them in 2018-2019, especially for this release. The result is "illuminescence", a collection of beautiful aerial and nostalgic guitar-based tracks, maybe a bit more droney and melodic...

"illuminescence" is available in two editions:
- the regular edition (alm 100) is a minimax CD with 4 tracks. 150 copies are available.
- the special edition (alm 100#) includes the regular edition plus a transparent 7" lathe-cut including 2 exclusive tracks (the digital download will include the 6 tracks). This edition is limited to 50 numbered copies.

----------------------------------------

«these "songs" are not played perfectly - i'm not a professional musician. but all I can say is that they express my deepest feelings, a yearning for something that is absolutely not 'visible' or tangible. i don't know what it is, but there must be something hidden in the air, in the sounds, in the sensations...»
Baraka[H] - april 2019
