ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Coming back from the idleness and sad enchantments of the “Deconstruct the Debris” aftermath (his latest album), Raine Holtz delicately chants a spiritual incantation for the sake of his new-found “place in the world”: his Sanctuary.

“It was instinctive”, says Raine, about the creative process. “After releasing [Deconstruct the Debris], I was tired and completely drained out, I needed to take some time to assort the other aspects of my life in order to achieve some kind of balance. Yet, I was also renewed, a blank page: so I allowed myself to just receive this new music with all my senses (and knowledge) shut, just feeling the growing of natural things inside me. With such a primitive approach, there were no sheets, no writing down, not a single journal page of lyrics: I would pick up a random instrument, play around with it and simply record what was being channeled through me. I had an almost religious vow to them, because they are so precious: they are a sanctuary. I was so determinate to create a sanctuary with these pieces”.

Pale-faced and neutered, Raine delivers a masterpiece of mesmerizing, effortless, gracious world fusion: exploring the realms of celtic, folk, neoclassical, drone music and a hint of darkwave, the glossolalia gives a sacred setting, along with the warm textures of organs, pads and ethereal ambiences; and added to the playful tunes of recorders, hurdy-gurdies, accordions and a large range of percussion from all the corners of the world, the album becomes a diversified and rich art piece. Never before has Through Waves sounded so marvelous, and so vulnerable: a gift from the Otherworld, brought by a procession of monks crossing the bridges over our well-known troubled waters.
