whyfisucks. This album conjures up feelings in me I perhaps haven't yet dealt with. An ambient work of medicinal value. Favorite track: Divine Weight.

sinistralsounds The Heaviness of existence is overwhelmingly terrifying and beautiful all at once.I decided to make a blind purchase after finding the album cover intriguing. "Pierrot" demanded my attention but "This is Not My Country" almost brought me to tears on my way to my unfulfilling 6AM shift. I felt a strange queasiness, hidden emotions i've been bottling up to just move forward with my day to day life. Favorite track: This is Not My Country.

Dalton Fordyce Very "transcendent" and cinematic kind of stuff. It'll take you to a place, not so much Lynchian, not so much Tarkovsky, but a combination of both. Where every detail is poetic, but the whole picture is absurd. Alex is doing something special here. Favorite track: This is Not My Country.

about

Beyond the personal consciousness, there is the familial consciousness, above the familial there is the cultural, above the cultural, the historical, and so on ascending into the vast cosmical or spiritual consciousness. The conception of Divine Weight derives from Zhang’s “failed” attempts of saxophone compositions and recordings accumulated over the last 3 years, from there it became the actual stem tracks that were heavily digitally disfigured until it no longer resembled the sound of saxophones. Like dreams, visions often come to us without us having the capability to measure or understand fully what they mean. Similar to Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Psychomagic, dreams and visions take on the roles of witnesses inside the uncharted labyrinth of the personal sub-conscious. To witness, is to believe. To believe, is to project a certain reality onto the external world. The projection then, has nothing to do with reality. Perhaps it’s where dreams go, after it dies.
