The third release on FracturedSpacesRecords is Osman Arabi's "Burning Sigils", a single 38-minute track of deeply hypnotic ethno-ambience tinged with a cold darkness; a forgotten text written in the blood of generations, a story of long-buried secrets and civilisations that worshipped dark gods in the hidden kingdoms, lost to time and memory, becoming covered by both sand and the unforgiving ravages of time. This languid and hip-swayingly sinister piece builds slowly, unfolding it's narrative unhurriedly, in the same way that the ages-old deserts themselves have been around forever, in the process resurrecting the shades of aeons-dead peoples and blowing cold winds across the heat-ridden sandy wastes. Delve with us into the black heart of a now-vanished civilisation and visit the incense-filled temples of the gods of the arid places. OSMAN ARABI is better known as the driving force behind the raw, acid- and hate-filled harsh electronics onslaught outfit 20.SV, and also the ritual ambient project SEEKER. This release sees Arabi tread a new path, creating textures and sonic narratives inspired by the environment and troubled history of his own childhood, a reflection perhaps of the troubled history of his homeland.
