My name is Marc, I first encountered esoteric ideas when I was 15 years old in a book called The Black Arts by Richard Cavendish, It was not until I was 17 that I was introduced to the ideas in the Book of Thoth by Aleister Crowley (especially The Tarot and Animism) . I am now 45 and have related to various esoterica through music, art and personal practice during the intervening time. From Psychic TV and Coil to The shamen and Goa Trance via Throbbing gristle and everything in the Rave scene from the late eighties onwards. It seems impossible to fill this space with all my influences from the world of musick.

My process to create starts with words, I use keywords and expressions around an intention and cut up the ideas until they give birth to something that intuitively feels correct. I then paint the assemblage of language into a montage of symbolic images and colours. After this I charge the image through acoustic percussion and mantra (traditional or otherwise). Once I have obtained communication with my project and entered into a contract with it I move to my PC maintaining the state of trance and interaction in order to assemble a sonic tapestry of samples and sounds that reflect or are guided and informed to be representations of my communion with my work, I then edit and restructure. (Though not always) The sound has to be a reality of the contract/contact those are the terms and conditions.

I compose sound under three names Wolven Angel (Inspired by T.A.Z), M.A.R. and Children of Osiris, These personas/conditions/constructs serve different attitudes of purpose in order to guide certain aspects of my projects. Each set of conditions forms a set of temporary expressions recorded.

The Enigmatic Saga of Children of Osiris: A Discordant Melody

In the nebulous realm of experimental music, where soundscapes intertwine with arcane themes, one enigmatic group emerged, known only as Children of Osiris. Born from the depths of the digital soundscape, their presence on Bandcamp reverberates with an aura of mystique and curiosity, drawing in audacious listeners willing to immerse themselves in the unknown.

Children of Osiris, a name derived from the ancient Egyptian deity, embody a musical journey that transcends traditional boundaries. Like the eternal rebirth of Osiris himself, this ethereal ensemble constantly reinvents their sonic identity, seamlessly blending elements of ambient, glitch, and avant-garde electronica into a tapestry of haunting melodies and distorted rhythms.

Children of Osiris' Bandcamp presence serves as a portal to their sonic labyrinth, a swirling vortex where conventional song structures dissipate into a mist of dissonance. Each release is a cryptic narrative, an exploration of otherworldly themes that transcends the confines of mundane reality. Their compositions possess an eerie elegance, captivating listeners with disorienting atmospheres, whispered incantations, and distorted echoes that seep into the subconscious.

The dissonant harmonies merge with cryptic field recordings, evoking the resonance of long-abandoned temples and forgotten catacombs. The listener becomes a spectral witness to Children of Osiris' auditory séance, their music serving as a medium through which the past and present coalesce in a cacophony of ethereal echoes. Here, Children of Osiris transmute sound into a visceral experience, alchemizing dissonance into a symphony of sonic transmutation. Utilizing complex polyrhythms, glitched-out samples, and ethereal chants, the band creates an aural landscape where time unravels, and reality bends at the whims of the musical sorcerers.

Children of Osiris have become a revered entity within the experimental music community, their Bandcamp offerings acting as portals to uncharted realms of audio exploration. Their enigmatic biography may forever elude the grasp of curious souls, but their legacy as the emissaries of aural esoterica remains etched in the minds of those willing to venture beyond the ordinary and embrace the enigmatic soundscape they manifest.
