Bow Down

from by Jahzzar



Onus is a bad day. A slump.

Surely the most gray and sad work that I ever made for this library. A step beyond melancholy, Onus tries to collect most of feelings and motivations that we can live in those times in which one is not quite right: from gloom to hope, anger, moments of simple contemplation. When one collapses and at the same time want to get up and initiate change. When the head is going a mile a minute and yet one does not think of anything. This moments when you are blank and get great lucidity both.

Onus is melodic lines of strings and winds supported in electronic beds. With synths in the background and saturated drum machines. Guitars that appear suddenly, distant. There are broken rhythms and kicks that hit you. The result of mixing dark electronica with dramatic orchestral arrangements.

Influences... Actress, snowy beaches, silence, Arca, Haxam Cloak, Andy Stott, Ben Frost, Björk, Clark, wrong expectations, homesickness, cold snap, Theo Parrish, Herbert, violins and cellos, broken instruments, Hans Zimmer, Debussy, Britten, Shostakovich, Brian Eno, Johann Johannsson, Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto, hugs...
