New York-based composer and musician Mario Diaz de Leon (also known as Oneirogen) has announced the release of a new album. Sanctuary is out on September 29th via Denovali Records. It follows 2015’s The Soul Is The Arena. Title-track is the first excerpt available for streaming. Listen below.
For the third full length document of his classical works, Mario Diaz de Leon presents his most unified o ering to date, distilling the modernistic hellfire of his previous releases to a crystalline essence. “Sanctuary” is an album length piece created in collaboration with TAK Ensemble, a brilliant NYC based quintet devoted to energetic and virtuosic performances of contemporary music. Featuring soprano voice, flute, violin, bass clarinet, marimba, and the composer’s own synthesizer work, the album is a hypnotic and ritualistic journey through realms of angelic and demonic experience.
