Soul III (Ylem)

"The ‘Soul’ trilogy is an introspective journey of the immaterial characteristics of individuals. The 3-track story can be understood as a personal depiction and view on three states of a soul. ‘Ylem’ was done entirely on cello, except for the rhythm percussion which was created using my studio chair squeak which I accidentally recorded then processed electronically. The entire track is built using different kinds of delay and layering several cello pizzicato voices on top of each other. ‘Ylem’ means something along the lines of "primordial substance from which all matter is formed” and derives from the Greek ‘matter’. As the astronomer Carl Sagan once said; ‘we are made of cosmic dust and dust we will become’. The life circle couldn’t be more beautiful and perfect.” Sebastian Plano
