“NN Vol. 3 True Purpose Of The Electronic Distortion”
“There’s no two without three” or “Three is the perfect number”.. you choose which one is more suitable for introducing this third anniversary compilation that every year gives us the opportunity to prepare this special release of previously unreleased tracks by a lot of great artists. This year, the huge compilation features music by professional artists such as Robert Lippok and Herself which goes a special thanks for having participated with other emerging artists that deserve special treatment that Nostress Netlabel reserves. The introduction of new catalogs of physical media supports such as CDs and your kind donations, has offered to us the opportunity to be able to have the necessary funds to organize events and local concerts and for that we are grateful. We continue our work with pride and hope to be able to do more and learn about new artists and music of great interest.
Well, Kai Engel didn’t just sit around doing nothing at all. That kind of person can’t afford to. So, what is his brand new album like? It’s pretty much a soundtrack to a movie that never was and never will be. Yet we can get a glimpse of it by exploring the palette of sounds and listening to every note closely – there are landscapes and images, characters and stories, scenes and moods. There are calls and echoes. So, after all that film probably does exist.
“The City Without Sun” is a concept album of instrumental electronic music. An ideal soundtrack for the kid’s novel by Michel Grimaud ‘La ville sans soleil’. A French novel of the 70s, which in the post ’68 era, tell us about of a group of teenager activists against the pollution of their ‘city without sun’ by an unscrupulous local squire.A book that still has not lost his, though simplistic, message of rebellion and hope. A book to be known, to be implemented, to not forget.
“There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth, beyond the highest, the very highest heavens. This is the light that shines in your heart” (Chandogya Upanishad)
“Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light from which everything in the universe comes, to which everything in the universe returns; the original nature of your own mind. The natural state of the universe unmanifest. Let go into the clear light, trust it, merge with it. It is your own true nature, it is home”.
(Tibetan Book of the Dead)
“If you light a lamp for someone else,
it will also brighten your path”.
“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.”
