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.
As remnants of the Source Transmission emerge from the cosmological drift, a new epoch begins with the assemblage of the Æthereal Code.
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.
Matter spreads through space like a cosmic code traversing the universe inside solar windblown motes of space-dust or interwoven into encoded beams of starlight.
Explore this cosmic migration through the stars and the origins of life, as the artists on STARSEED evoke the patterns and frequencies of the universe. Every man and woman is a star.
Strahinja Maletić, one of Europe's top psybient producers, brings his project Fourth Dimension to Synphaera Records with The Core - eight deep tracks of interlocking synth & bass sequences. provocative beats and hypnotic pads.
Deeply textural, and rich with atmosphere, The Core takes the listener on a journey to the cosmic boundary between inner and outer space.
Everything in the universe is vibration. Each one of us is ascending to a higher frequency. We are all divine particles. Spirits that are connected. Etheric reality is now becoming the only reality. The oneness in the universe connecting us all back to source.
Vibration is transcendence. Our evolution is the realization of our vibrational stasis and transcending from human being to planetary beings. The cosmic and mental shift from the physical to the astral plane. Higher dimensional thinking recodes our DNA to a 12 strand sequence. Eternal life on Earth. Reclaiming our immortal existence.
Blending classic ambient and electronic styles, Solaris brings together Fourth Dimension’s Strahinja Maletić and Ascendant’s Don Tyler for a Tarkovsky-inspired glimpse into the invisible world of a future earth.
“I don’t so much as see the universe,
but feel it. Blind to the sun.
Water. Earth. Stone.
The elements of the stars.
In me. In you.
The dream rests within.”
“Let everything that's been planned come true.”
― Andrei Tarkovsky
Greek producers Vasilis Kesalidis and Ioannis Konstantios started One Arc Degree with the intent to explore how music can trigger different emotional responses and memories, and then channel those evocations back into the music itself in a continuous cycle of discovery and renewal.
With Cosmos in Flux, their Synphaera debut, One Arc Degree explores the mutable world of space-time on a micro-scale:
“There is no reason that spacetime needs to be fundamentally smooth. We can imagine it consisting of many small, ever-changing, regions in which space and time are not definite, but fluctuate in a foam-like manner. As we probe at smaller scales, about ten times a billionth of the diameter of hydrogen's nucleus, spacetime foam reveals itself, an ocean of quantum bubbles through which light travels, cosmos in flux.”

Hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, composer & producer Mihail Glukhov's ambient project Germind sees its full-length debut on Synphaera with the album Flows.
Reminiscent in spirit of early electronic space music, Flows calls to mind such groundbreaking releases as Tangerine Dream’s Zeit and Klaus Schulze’s Cyborg & Timewind albums. Mihail re-contextualizes the genre in a completely modern style, with his own intimate touch and impeccable, no-limits approach to production.
At turns meditative and thought-provoking, Flows is lush, warm & darkly romantic. With a keen sense of space, Germind reminds us of the distance between the stars with more minimal, enveloping arrangements, and then slowly increases the density as gravity begins to take hold…
Flows is space music for a modern era, a free flight as much for soul as it is for the mind.
Ionized gasses, free electrons and positive ions dance & flow together as stars ignite with transcendent fusion - plasma born of the perfect form. Enter the atmospheric world of Fourth Dimension as he returns to Synphaera Records with The Perfect Form, an album of provocative, minimal electronic ambient music.
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.
