Product Description

Markus Guentner’s story continues where Theia left off, with another set of epic atmospheres and brave new worlds. This time Markus enlists the skills of harpist Tom Moth, cellist Julia Kent and fellow ambient storyteller bvdub to complete the journey.

Markus Guentner’s 2015 album, Theia took us back to the mythological impact that birthed the Earth’s moon. The creation of the galaxy as we know it today was being born and more specifically, the eventual rise of the human species followed. This is where Empire takes its cue, continuing the story and portraying the connection and many interactions between the Earth, the Universe and the mystifying forces amongst them.

Be it physical, scientific or mythological, Empire draws on the ebb and flow relationship the Earth has with the deeper, unknown space around us. Markus dives into sometimes sinister, but always majestic territories with his unique manipulation of looping drones, textures and gradual atmospheres. The album and its planned progression, combine back-and-forth chapters between Markus’ own productions and collaborations, representing the different perspectives between the unknown worlds.
