This Friday, January 29th, Scry Recordings will unleash Argyropoeia, the new split EP from SATARAY and ZANIA MORGAN. The disquieting, five-track offering is a ritual purging for nocturnal metamorphosis… their voices heralding a birthing of new form in unearthly flight.
In advance of the EP’s official release, today ZANIA MORGAN presents “Crepulsculum,” now playing at Distorted Sound. Notes MORGAN of the unsettling track, “It’s an anamorphotic gateway to the philospher’s magnus opus.”
Stream ZANIA MORGAN “Crepulsculum,” exclusively at Distorted Sound, HERE.
Argyropoeia is eloquently rooted in an esoteric entanglement of two women, deeply embroiled in their life’s work through audio frequencies. Many years ago, SATARAY and ZANIA MORGAN crossed paths by means of a select few whom had leanings similar in design to their own. The particular artistry and path working with Anima Nocturna was most certainly at the core of that newly found unity. From the point of that meeting on, the slow weaving of a surreal conjunction took place. This is their gift to each other and to you. Mastered by Casey Chittenden Jones (noisepoetnobody), Argyropoeia features cover art by Anima Nocturna in collaboration with Cypher Sothis.
For preorders, visit the SATARAY Bandcamp page HERE, where previously released track “Rain” can be streamed or the ZANIA MORGAN Bandcamp page HERE, where previously release track, “Nyx Ambrosia” can be streamed.
SATARAY is a one-woman ambient creation. It is ceremonial in nature, using incantations, whispers, and death vocals as the blade along with layers of synth and other electronic elements, creating a raw dark terrain. She performs live rituals with her music, often in accordance with artists such as Anima Nocturna and various Butoh dancers. In the Spring of 2019, she released her first solo full-length, Nocturnum, via Scry Recordings.
ZANIA MORGAN is the solo project of Zaskia S. Morgan (also a member of Ehecatl, Madison Mandrake, and Aixela). For the last thirteen years, ZANIA MORGAN has been performing live music for ritual events/gatherings along the West Coast, immersing her audience in an evocative pulse of dark “ritualwave” and birthing from its depth an ecstatic formula of gnosis in sound. In the Autumn of 2017, French label, Falco Invernale Records (F.I.R.), released her first physical recording on vinyl entitled Shapeshifter.
“Sometimes something comes along, and it is so unique, it makes you stop, and give it your full attention, just to make sense of exactly what it is that stopped you in your tracks. Argyropoeia, the split album that’s being imminently released by solo artists SATARAY and ZANIA MORGAN, is exactly one of those moments.” — The Sleeping Shaman
“There’s something about music that’s takes you on a mental journey and forces you to reevaluate where you’re standing that can be incredibly rewarding, as this album is for me. Or, you can just take a dark journey along with both artists and let yourself touch the face of the spirit world.” – Meat Mead Metal
