PHARMAKON Contact LP Vinyl NEW 2017
1. Nakedness of Need
4. Sleepwalking Form
6. No Natural Order
Bestial Burden, the previous album by Margaret Chardietâ€™s Pharmakon project, focused on the disconnect between mind and body, looking at the human as an isolated consciousness stuck inside of a rotting vessel. For Contact, she wanted to look at the other side of the spectrum â€“ the moments when our mind can come outside of and transcend our bodies. In trance states, music and the body are used to transcend the physical form and make contact with some outside force. Chardiet decided to structure the compoÂsitions of each side of Contact after the stages of trance: preparation, onset, climax, and resolution.
