“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
― Carl Gustav Jung
The first two compositions are darker while the last one brings more lightness, the one that is offered when life returns.
How to emerge from the cleavage duality by accepting opposites as true each one seen in the totality they constitute. No feminine without masculine, no evil without good, no noise without silence, no day without night. A dynamic wholeness, witness of itself and which cannot be reduced to synthesis or unity.
Rubbing against the dark matter to find a transfigured light
The last piece is a live recording of music composed for choreography. It is made up of several motifs that offered a guideline for dancers who had no other instructions than to let themselves be carried away by the musical proposal, hence the notion of an initiatory journey that spawned coherence in the unknown.

Anantakara, a Sanskrit adjective meaning to make infinite, is a Belgium based multi-instrumentalist composing and publishing music since 2011. Philippe Wauman , the man behind the project, likes to describe himself as sound calligrapher : making delicate blends of ambient, electronica, downtempo, ethnic, neo classical and jazz.
I see myself as a passer of intensities... I somehow trace a path that goes from sound to being, in the quest for a meeting point between opposing tensions: a mysterious point that regenerates and fulfills ... Probe the unfathomable, one could say. What is central to me is to let myself be crossed by a verticality that infuses a horizontality and creates a state of openness within "sound spaces" where the Vast and the Intimate dance together.
