Part two in the Monomyth trilogy by Frenic is out now. Nice beats, samples and cuts along the way. Its digi & vinyl pre-order, listen & links below. Be on the look out for the looper version of the album...
Monomyth Part 1:
The hero's journey continues. Having left behind your mundane reality in Monomyth: Separation. ‘Initiation’ will take you deep into the unknown, the underworld, the intangible.
Part 2 of the Monomyth trilogy will take you on a road of trials. This is a favorite phase of the myth- adventure.
Frenic has created a concept album in the Trip Hop tradition taking influence from a wide selection of source material that includes Hip Hop, Dub, Soul, Funk and Folk. This has all been crafted together using deep beats, scratches, huge dark reverbs and saturated lo fi sounds.
Based on the book “A Hero with a Thousand Faces”. By Joseph Campbell the trilogy seeks to engage with the concept that all stories have one common theme and by understanding this your own hero's journey can be enlightened.
“Whether we listen with aloof amusement to the dreamlike mumbo jumbo of some red-eyed witch doctor of the Congo, or read with cultivated rapture thin translations from the sonnets of the mystic Lao-tse; now and again crack the hard nutshell of an argument of Aquinas, or catch suddenly the shining meaning of a bizarre Eskimo fairy tale: it will be always the one, shape-shifting yet marvelously constant story that we find, together with a challengingly persistent suggestion of more remaining to be experienced than will ever be known or told.”(Joseph Campbell)
