Welcome to the [EX]panded edition of Ascendant's 2016 landmark album, Meridian. This double-album features four new ambient re-workings of your favorite tracks, and for the first time ever, a physical release in a deluxe 6-panel double-cd digipack.
At the edge of known space, on the threshold of the Gateway Aura, Ascendant concludes their Source Trilogy on Synphaera Records with the Particle Horizon.
Wavetables, modular synthesis, and a highly curated handful of digital plugins provide the palette as Ascendant trace the voyage of the first photon from its origins at the inception of the Source Transmission, through the assemblage of the Æthereal Code, and out through the void into eternal night, racing toward the last vestige of light at the particle’s edge and the dawn of the Age of Acceleration.
10,000 years from now. 10,000 light years from here. A New Land, come of age into a time of abundance, transcendence and enlightenment. The Age of Earth and Stone, where…
An enlightened man exists alongside post-singularity machine AI that manifest as floating coils of light. Frozen clouds are summoned and then flash-melted to provide the planet’s water, and liquid has memory.
A planet where habitats the size, shape & semblance of mountains hover over large bodies of water. A planet where enormous belts of sub-orbital forests scrub the ozone and provide oxygen.
A world where gravity bends, but time does not. A world of alchemical transmutation, elemental summoning, and abundance.
The Age of Earth and Stone.
As remnants of the Source Transmission emerge from the cosmological drift, a new epoch begins with the assemblage of the Æthereal Code.
Source Transmission, the first chapter of Ascendant’s Source Trilogy is now available on Synphaera Records. With audio enhancements, new artwork and a digital booklet, this remastered re-release sets the story in motion.
Before the formation of the Æthereal Code…
Before space, time and matter.
Before earth and stone.
The Source Transmission.
