Le Serpent Blanc describes the rising of the uraeus. unrelenting and agressive in some moments - equally deceiving, seducing and gentle in others.
Le Serpent Rouge is the musical impression of a french poem / riddle concerning itself with a strange zodiac. a zodiac where the ophiochus (the serpent) has an intricate yet previously unexplained role. This 13-legged system has been subject to numerous attempted explanations, all of which have failed.
We provide no explanation or any attempt towards one - but offer an impression of how the text revealed itself to us - sometimes at length, sometimes mere flashes of the imagination...sometimes focusing on the physical animal the text refers too, sometimes deviating from any tangible relation, as real truth will only reside within that 'early in the morning dream wake state' of the person beholding the zodiac.
'Le Serpent Blanc' concentrates t.m.o.'s combination of hard techno, 4-to-the-floor rhythms, tribal percussion and breaks overwhelmed by voice samples.
This music is powerful and aggressive, but not as nihilistic as many industrial soundwars. if you can't dance to it, you must be at least deaf, maybe blind, or at least a one-eyed man...
Until you reached a point where more 'relaxation' is needed - time to change to 'Le Serpent Rouge'.
This cd focusses the ritual-influenced side of mika's musical personality.
This music is more quiet than 'Le Serpent Blanc' but never calm or soft.
Open up your mind and let it flow...
