Krautrock Strange Beats ~Post New AgeContains 6 ambient tracks.Booklet included.Below is an explanation by the author.

"Zoroastrianism is an ancient religion that is still actively worshiped by a small number of people around the world and has a great influence on Western culture.
Much of what appears to be essential (or "healthy") to Western thinking certainly has its roots in ancient Iran.Dualism, such as good and evil, light and darkness, heaven and hell, has long been spoken in Persian.
The project explores a crossfade-like moment, 6 to 7 years before Common Ella, set in Zoroaster in the breadbasket of the Iranian Plateau.
The decline of goddess worship and the first tension of patriarchy.It was the moment when a man named Zoroaster appeared, not the-ism of today's still-living religion, and created a new religion centered on one god, not many gods.The goddess, if not completely occult, was pushed underground and swallowed by the mainstream to the point of being forgotten.The goddesses, who previously had their own dedicated cult group, have been transformed into inferior beings.We will revive the flame.

Finally the 4th volume of "The Encyclopedia of Civilizations" is here! This time it is not a split LP, but a collaboration. Modular synth maestro M. Geddes Gengras and left-field pop priestess Leyna Noel aka Psychic Reality join forces to compose together their new project inspired by Zoroaster: M.Goddess.

An exquisite modern ambient record mixing leftfield, kosmische, new age, dub vibes ... Very original and rich compositions with genius arrangements combining spacey synth sequences, dreamy guitars, modular sounds, weird rhythms ... Along the lines of Craig Leon, Conrad Schnitzler, or the Mecánica Clásica's contemporary approach to the kosmische masters.
 
"Zoroastrianism is an ancient religion that is still actively practiced today by a small population of people worldwide and has had a massive influence on western culture.
Many things that appear to be integral to western thinking (and thus “wholesome”) indeed have their roots in ancient Iran. Dualities such as good and evil, light and dark, heaven and hell—even paradise is an old Persian word.
For this project, we are exploring this Zoroaster moment—set in the bread basket of the Iranian plateau, six to seven millennia before the Common Era—that's like a cross-fade.
The fading of goddess worship and the first strains of the patriarchy. Not the -ism of today's still-living religion, but the moment when this man Zoroaster came along and created a new religion that centered one god instead of the many. feminine underground, if not fully occulted, obscured and engulfed into the mainstream enough to be forgotten. Goddesses that before had their own dedicated cults were converted into lesser players.
We're reviving those flames too. "
