Purification by Four Elements: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire.

This is the second volume from series of albums dedicated to Purification by Four Elements: Water.
The music is composed by Kateryna Zavoloka, transmitting different states of water and how they can be specifically translated to the sound. Low frequencies as a depth, traditional vocal as the surface of sonic water.

This album is a result of 2-years of research, including work at Electroacoustic Music Studio at Academy of Music in Cracow and concerts-performances in collaboration with live generative interactive visuals from Laetitia Morais. It is an exploration of Water Element. It is inspired by knowledge about Ukrainian Cossacks-Magicians, so-called Kharakternyky, that could control forces of nature, particularly water. They used to drink spring water to purify their energy and to became undistinguished and fluid as water.

To reach inner melting.
