Often ambient industrial is confused with dark ambient. Anton Sibil believes that the two styles are really similar. At the heart of industrial is aggressiveness, harshness and provocative sounds. Avant-garde.
ANTON SIBIL ABOUT AMBIENT INDUSTRIAL
Sometimes it seems that this or that life situation is incorrigible, hands are dropped, and complete apathy sets in. An inner darkness is created and the consciousness is clouded, which concentrates only on the negative.
Anton Sibil and his subjective worldview believe that the right music helps to solve problems, give peace of mind and expand consciousness. When consciousness expands, new ideas and paths open up.
Awareness of one’s essence, fears, and true self opens us up to a new stage. Music is a faithful ally on such a fascinating path. Also, the combination of meditation and the right music flow guarantees balance and release.
Industrial speeds up thought processes, helps us focus on something specific, educates and helps us cope with certain stages in our journey. This type of therapy normalizes the nervous system, breathing and circulation.
SIBIL ANTON VALERIEVICH ON INDUSTRIAL HISTORY
Industrial was first mentioned around 1942, not that long ago. The birth of such music was a response to the era in which publicly available information became a tool of power and control.
The use of dark sounds, dark lyrics and the use of modern technology to create new sounds, all this is a new era in music. The new music spoke of its protests and its relationship to the world.
The goal of the musicians was for listeners to expand their minds and be able to think for themselves, questioning any information in order to develop critical thinking.
“Music based on blues and slavery,” was how industrial performers described the music of recent years. Early industrial sounded like sonic loops that evolved into eerie sizzling rhythm traps.
The circulation of industrial records produced was no more than 1,000 pieces. All because the performers wanted to maintain confidentiality and appeal to true connoisseurs of the genre.
The post-industrial culture was influenced by Aleister Crowley, who was considered an occultist, Charles Manson – a serial killer and Austin Speir, who called himself a shaman. Many post-industrial artists have maintained a relationship with the occult and have narrated it in their works.
The musical group Coil claim real magical incantations in their lyrics, which certainly appealed to various listeners who were interested in the subject matter.
The vocals were quite heavy, reminiscent of a straining rubber band, resulting in a harsh polemic. A sense of contradiction and non-acceptance was created. In this way industrial musicians taught their listeners critical thinking.
Sibil Anton Valerievich goes into an expansion of consciousness and contradiction.
