"When each word, each emotion, each impulse expires, when even
the breathing to keep a human-machine alive becomes useless, death and
annihilation become the only way possible. But, each death is followed
by a re-birth, a timid step towards the universe of senses and perceptions,
the cycle of nature and the rites of fertility and fecundation. Black
and white give in to lashes of colours, explosions of pulse, and the
heavenly bodies, that govern the flowing of events, no longer indifferent
and cynical, give us back our sensitivity. Like dazzled human beings,
we create our earth, water, air and fire myths. Penetrating the lush
garden of Psiche and Eros, where every flash and sound acquire a metaphysical
value, we reach
the sacred essence, and we make our spiritual nature being in balance
with the material one, beauty and wisdom over blind violence".
the third and last ATARAXIA's demotape recorded and self-produced in
1992 and released in 1993 by Energeia.
The band has chosen not to change the original sound keeping the early
90ies rough and instinctive spirit.
They have included to this re-issue a bonus track, "L'Ultimo Arazzo",
that had to be part of the original 1993 release but, being not satisfied
with the original version, they re-recorded it right now with the participation
of Riccardo Spaggiari on drums.
"Sometimes, slowly walking through
the rooms of an old palace, on a wide wall we notice a tapestry. Lazy
eyes, as absent, pass by; curious eyes, as captured by enchantment,
bewitched, penetrate into it, irresistibly attracted by the restless
presence of hedges, fountains and animals that come into life opening
the dances in which we take part, as anomalous comedians or sylvan interpreters
of a bizarre picture".
