In 1864 marquis Paul de Vibraye found an ancient feminine statuette in the Vézère valley, in France. Deceived by its pronounced sexual attributes, he called the statuette Venus impudica (immodest Venus). This was the first of a serie of so called Venus figurines, dated from stone age, that were found everywhere in Europe. There has been much speculation, but no one really knows the function of these figurines. Whether they were symbols of Mother goddess or just curious feminine depictions, one thing is for sure: they are elaborate expressions of thought, forms of abstraction.
Animacusmatica, crasis of anima acusmatica, means acousmatic soul/breath. Acousmatic is a term to describe a sound as itself, not associated with its original source. As a result, sound - and noise - is free to take a new identity which may be re-composed in unusual musical ways, and, as a new object with specific characteristics, it is a form of abstraction.
This album has been mastered preserving its full dynamic range. Bandcamp doesn't use normalization on audio, so this record could sounds quieter than some. For full enjoyment simply turn up the volume!
