Mandalas have been employed by a variety of spiritual traditions to awaken the kernel of
sanctity that lies dormant within all of the manifested universe. These Sonic Mandalas
continue that tradition and may be used to focus attention and exercise pure consciousness
in a trance state. They are also beautiful and enjoyable as pure musical experiences.
16 tracks ring in at just under one hour. Each track expresses a unique space moving from
expansive bright moods to dark ambient spaces and everything in between. Ambient
electronic sounds meet with blip and body moving beats to create an album that spans from
the heavens to the earth and back. This music can be used for meditation, deep listening,
conscious movement, or sacred dance. Its the perfect CD to make any space more alive
and conducive to the flow of creative energies.

JC is back with a new Kyron CD. There are 16
pieces in just under an hour of some quite haunting stuff. Dense, dark, ominous, present
and moving. Each one is a small journey, some with slow electronic beats or rhythms and
others more electronic drone excursions to a new or old world. Beware if you have a
subwoofer in your system as there are some very deep bass sounds at times that shake the
surroundings. Fans of dark, moody, ambient electronica, should check this label and Kyron
out. In another world...
Aural Innovations #40 (September 2008)
From the dark striplings of sound and amorphic drum
sentiments of 'Ouroboroso,' 'Annulus' or even 'Crateraae' to the Photek or
D'iberville-like D'n'B works of 'Clypei,' 'Globulus,' 'Tympani' or 'Aequatoris' to the
airy and quasi-melodic 'Circulus,' 'Lamnae' or 'Aureola' and whatever lies beyond, JC has
created a constant flow of amoebic rhythms, stirring rushes, low frequency baths and
industrial ambience over the course of 16 short but stunning tracks.
What first appears to lay the foundation of a typical Cold Meat style recording suddenly
surprises with electronically infused drum patterns: simple and somewhat atypical at
times, yet miraculously fitting; oppressing bass cruches and unexpected melodic sequences
(think Urmur Bile Trax, yet unfettered and relaxed), giving the whole disc a rather
refreshing direction as opposed to sputtering about on the same old same-old of most dark
JC has beautifully crafted a journey of sound that doesn't disappoint, working to drag you
through deep space or the dark recesses of the mind and never faltering on prolonged
obsessions with persistent drones or half-assed rhythms.
Overall, this is one of those rare instances where I feel the work is neither over- nor
underdone and delivers exactly what it set out to do, from beginning to end.
