At the distance this forthcoming album is a resolutely dark ambient neoclassical release but from a closer listening it defies the canonical schemas of genre . The musical argument reaches a synthesis and an harmonious conversation between consonant acoustic minimalism and warmly nostalgic emotional ambiences with a great sense of romanticism and experimentalism.

"Misty shroud of regrets” presents a corpus of spleen-piano based ambiences and nightly soundscaping laments for electric organ and darkened chords. The musical ensemble reveals microtonal bitter melodies occasionally punctuated by a few narrative parts, an array of noises, found sounds and field recordings. “Misty shroud of regrets” is a timeless musical effort based on the existential photographic poetry of Yulia Kazban.

Under Mournful Horizons delivers supreme ambient pieces in a darkly cinematic and cathartic vein. The conceptual background is implicitly connected to the rumbling process of “entlichtung” and to the skeptical quest of men in a post-metaphysical era. More at : http://rageineden.org/

Currently in progress this work will attempt a symbiosis of acoustic microtonal figures with stylistic forms of sound lyricism and processed looped textures. With a certain sense of mystery, tension and melancholy as well as with a strongly emotional cinematic shape, the music will try to reflect, approach and translate into words and sound-colors the introspective search on the immaterial expression of beauty. Outside of Day Before Us’ soloing early experiments and regular musical forma, this effort will announce a musical chemistry between two sound-creators in a heavenly ambient style. Philippe will be responsible of the instrumental side while Eufrosyne will lead vocal explorations in between neo-folk, poetical recitatives and operatic qualities.
Autumnal wandering is a soundscaping based project largely impregnated by the purest incantatory-visionary forms of the Austrian-German “weltschmerz” poetical tradition (from the mystically haunted Christian symbolism of Georg Trakl, to the dreamlike romanticism of Ludwig Tieck and the tormented ecstasies of Nicolaus Lenau). Musically, the whole compositional process is turned to infinitely melancholic, sinister and epic semi-acoustic neoclassical sound textures, electronic drone in-flux, blurry organic chords and deeply emotional poetical lyricism. For this last project, Philippe Blache (Day Before Us) is accompanied by the vocalist and electronic sound designer Markus Pape (M@p).
