Hello from Neo Ouija!
We hope this mail finds you well and in the right mood for some springtime activities (especially after that dreadful em411 downtime..). However, while the days are still long here is some melancholic material to keep tie you over. The band is called "Honey Sacrifice", the record is "Nights in Columbus" and their influences range from Richie Hawtin (whose old label Plus8 the man behind Honey Sacrifice released on in the early 90s) to Bohren und der Club of Gore.
The Honey Sacrifice was developed as a soundtrack to a film which is yet to be realized. The 13 tracks accredited to the album "Nights in Columbus" reveal the underlying tension between an ever promising future and the stark reality of the present in a ficticious urban zone of Columbus, Ohio. The interplay of the songs represents the struggle, the desolation, hopes realized and forgotten; laid before a solemn semblage of technology, communication and addiction. The various relations of the muscians/actors chronicle the human élan and its creative outpouring through self effacing methods and practices. The Honey Sacrifice asks to remain an album closer to a novel then a proper atmospheric soundtrack. The name refers to a chapter of Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None, an 1883 work by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The name's relevance simply states the oppositional forces of things and situations desirable and the sacrifices made to achieve them. Captured digitally in 96 kHz, 24 bit resolution, production aspects were never compromised. Painstaking efforts have been taken to capture all the nuances of the individual performances throughout the soundtrack. Final production and mastering in Weimar, Germany in a spooky coal burning studio with Martin Hirsch behind the desk.
