-The Alter Ego of Mindfuckingboy

Sankara is a solitary act armed with a distorted bass and accompanied by haunting vocals, combining man and machine and noise and doom to the effect of dispelling traditionalism back into the bleak hungry womb of nihility. The music is fierce and frightening, as though one were teetering at the brink of a great void.

Inspired by Adi Sankara, the Indian philosopher who extended Hinduisms’ ever-expanding branches even further into all-containing, all-embracing horizons with Advaita Vedanta – the belief that our experience and awareness of this world is born out of an undefinable, unknowable energy of which we are made. Thousands of years ago, he radically urged people of the world to open up their minds, reject ritualism and look past the surface to see the things hidden in the depths of our souls.

Sankara is an attempt to explore these dimensions through the elements of music and sound, which, combined, have the power to simultaneously engage within an instance all binary opposites: haunting and magical, unseen and phenomenal, abstract and yet replete with the infinite possibilities of all things.
