This is a two-disc record released by Valentina Goncharova, a veteran experimental musician from Kiv, Ukraine, on the experimental label Hidden Harmony in Tallinn, Estonia in 2022.

Contains 11 experimental ambient folk to drone songs using various instruments including electric violin. Comes with a 12-page booklet containing the album's concept and equipment used, as well as a DL code.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

``My job is to help the listener sink deeper into the music.

The music is completely improvised. There is no concept in a rational sense. The concept is purely intuitive. It assumes the law of analogy: "As above, so below. Man is the same as the universe. The universe is the same as man." (The Emerald Tablet by Hermes Trismegistus). It is like a restatement of logic, using more symbols that have not only philosophical meanings, but also imaginative meanings and visionary interpretations.

This music is stream of consciousness in its purest form. It is not an imitation of a flow like the 20th century's allusive poetry, but a flow in which one flow is superimposed on another (a multifaceted channel of record). And if you think that this flow of music is better understood under the influence of the flow of words, then the flow of words will also become more intuitive, just as you objectively look at this short sentence that you are reading now. It should be associative.

Ocean did not exist within the axes of logical scientific thinking of the past four centuries. It can be said to be based on an intuitive concept of the representation of the world metaphorically captured in music. It is similar to the way myths were created in ancient times with only partial support from verbal associations. The Ocean is the experience of the human soul and mind passing through various states of the material world: birth, development, attainment of perfection, transformation at the point of path and silence, previously remaining in a potential state. Manifestation of world harmony (Om). It abhors both mainstream modern physics and fringe scientific research. exist outside their explanatory power.

The Ocean is the source of all forms that can receive life in time and space. That's it here. The beautiful and the terrifying, the good and the bad, the self-sacrifice and the betrayal. Creativity full of boundless love and inspiration. However, contact does not occur immediately. The memory of a bygone civilization is still fresh, and so is the memory of the important things left behind." "

Liner Notes excerpt via the label:

" My task is to allow the listener to penetrate deeper into the music.

The music is wholly improvisational. It has no concept in the rational sense of the word. It's concept is purely intuitive. It presumes The Law of Analogies: “As above so below. Man is the same as the Universe. The Universe is the same as Man.” (“Emerald Tablet” by Hermes Trismegistus”). This intuition is a kind of rephrased logic which uses many more symbols which contain not only philosophical but also imaginative meanings/ visionary interpretations.

This music is a stream of consciousness in its purest form: not an imitation of a stream, as in the 'suggestive poetry' of the 20th century, but a stream where one flow is superimposed on another (a multilateral passage of recording). And, if we think this flow of music will be better understood under the influence of a verbal flow, then the verbal flow should also be more intuitive and associative, as objective for this short write-up you are currently reading.

Ocean did not appear within the coordinate system of logical scientific thinking of the last four centuries. It can be said that it is based on an intuitive concept of representations of the world which are captured in music figuratively. Similar to how myths were created in time immemorial with only partial support from verbal associations. Ocean is an experience of passing the Human Soul and Mind through the different states of the material world: birth, development, and achievement of perfection, transformation at the points of The Way and Silence, the manifestation of the harmony of the world (Om), which until then had remained in a latent state. It is averse to both mainstream contemporary physics and fringe scientific research. It exists outside their explanatory power.

Ocean is the source of all forms that can receive their life within time and space. Here it is. It has everything: beautiful and terrible, good and evil, self-sacrifice and betrayal. Boundless love and inspired creativity. But contact does not happen immediately. The memory of a bygone civilization is still fresh, and of the dearest things left with it."
