Conceptually linked to its predecessor Silent Earth from 2016, Refugium delves deeper into the same vision of a peaceful and apocalyptic utopia. Taking an intimate and introspective point of view, the album explores the quiet and in-between moments of being.
When all falls silent, what do you hear?
When consciousness rests, what do you see?
When night falls, who do you miss?
Using hypnotic patterns, organic pulses and complex layered drones, Refugium is ambient music that spins around its own set up atmosphere. It evokes a pendulum of emotion and thus creates an in-between moment all by itself, a refuge, a haven.
