The promise of Eternal Life has been the crucial subject in which numerous religions and spiritual beliefs have based their foundations on. For the idea of non-existence is as troubling and inconceivable to humans as infinite itself, on the other hand the thought of interminably experiencing more from a reality we are so accustomed to, brings comfort to more than one soul. Innocence is bliss, and being forever shields us from turning our eyes to the dreadful horror of the unknown, the black pit of nothingness, the void. But it’s within its contemplation that lies the secret knowledge.
Vitam Aeternam is an international, experimental music project formed by entities known as Jake Rosenberg (Desperate Machines, In Progress), Râhoola (A Flying Fish), André Aaslie (Funeral, Profane Burial, Abyssic, Omnia Maritur etc.) and Charles A. Leal (Domestiq Bits). It is through chance and shared musical values, that such people were able to create original sonic art, full of complex, emotional, dramatic, haunting, melodic and cinematic music. An honest work from the subconscious depths, and a prodigious offspring of our interconnected digital zeitgeist.
