Released| 11 Sep 2020
The prima materia is believed from a philosphical stand point to be the material that began all things. Such as begining The Silvery Waters sister label. Co-founder Heavenly Bodies crafts an expressive ambient album with techno hints, droning pads, noise and tape looped samples into an enriching interlude for the future.
In alchemy and philosophy, prima materia, materia prima or first matter (for a philosophical exposition refer to: Prime Matter), is the ubiquitous starting material required for the alchemical magnum opus and the creation of the philosopher's stone. It is the primitive formless base of all matter similar to chaos, the quintessence or aether. Esoteric alchemists describe the prima materia using simile, and compare it to concepts like the anima mundi.
