Essentially an exploration of different spaces and different modes of energy, 'Terra Incognita' uses a distinctly analogue production and mastering design to lure the listener into a trance-like lullaby, a hypnotic state of altered consciousness if you will. At the same time though, the music plays with a direct expression of organic elements, earthing the listening experience, thus giving it a solid base. The sound of the album should be felt, should be lived. At maximum volume or at low volume, the experience is one of a beautiful paradox. A continous counterpoint of energy materializing and matter being transformed into energy.
Mellow washes alternate with sharp, almost piercing sounds, deep sub-tones alternate with hiss. Oubys' intention is to confront and subdue, to make space be felt and to translate and transmit energy.
