A Mythology of Circles’ is the new album from Brooklyn-based
composer and musical artist Faten Kanaan, her first to be released on
Fire Records. Cyclical patterns and 'variation through repetition' are
central to Faten’s music. Harmony and counterpoint are composed
intuitively and treated as narrative tools- with sound, silence, and the
resulting mystical relationship between notes used as gestures to tell a
wordless story. The album is separated into a ‘dusk to evening’ side,
and an ‘underworld/dream-state’ side; highlighting the myths of Ishtar,
Inanna, Orpheus, Persephone, and others.
Inspired by cinematic forms and mythological story structures: from
sweeping landscapes and quiet romances, to patterned tensions and
dream sequences; Faten brings an earthy, visceral touch to electronic
music. In symbiosis with technology is an appreciation for the
vulnerability of human limitations and nuances.
All the sections are played in real time, neither looped nor sequencedallowing for subtle changes to unfold. The use of VST sampled choral
voices in this album embodies the forlorn state of technological
acceleration, and the desire to return to a vulnerable human sound.
The album art also explores a complicated relationship with
technology: the statue comes from a series of digital replicas, returning
in its last stage to a more intimate and handmade feel.
Composed, produced and mixed by Faten Kanaan, the album was
mastered by Heba Kadry (Bjork, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Julianna Barwick)
