Nocturnum is the imminent debut full-length from one-woman dark ambient project SATARAY. Recorded and mixed by SATARAY and mastered by Casey Chittenden Jones (Noisepoetnobody) with imagery by ritual artist Anima Nocturna, the deeply ominous seven-song offering seamlessly mingles lingering whispers, diseased howls, and mournful incantations within a realm inhabited by exquisite synth lines, masterful ambience, hypnotic rhythms, and entrancing production.
SATARAY has been active since 2006 through many different incarnations, including live performances and recording collaborations with Seattle experimental musician Celadon. Over the last few years, SATARAY has been composing, performing, and recording her own music entirely, focusing intently on a specific sound. Her live displays create a ritualistic space and atmosphere, often including performance art elements such as butoh dance and other movement inspiration. She has participated in the Cascadian Yule gathering, and appeared at the Esoteric Book Conference, Passiontide, ShadowDance, and more, bringing her live immersive experience to Berlin, Colombia, the US West Coast, and the Pacific Northwest.
