about

Spaced between the post-minimalism of Einaudi, the hallucinatory ambient of Coil and the film scores of Tiersen, the birth for Othon’s first (truly) solo album took place during his performance at London’s Tate Modern in 2017, in which artist and Turner Prize winner Wolfgang Tillmans featured as his special guest. For this groundbreaking and capacity-reached concert, comprised of a grand piano and subtle electronics, Othon had composed and prepared only half of the material, whereas the rest was “downloaded on the spot in the transcendent state of union with Atma” or Self. The performance, as later the album, gave the effect of one long continuous piano set that shifted between powerful emotional swellings and mind-expansive meditative stillness.

It took inner discipline and trust for Othon to let go of any conscious control during these integrated ‘Meditations’ and to break a number of invisible intellectual barriers formed during his formal education at London’s Royal College of Music and Trinity College, as a young goth outsider. However, the result was successful and liberating, in musical, performative and spiritual terms. Describing his personal inner journeys as a psychonaut or ‘Soul Sailor’, Othon takes us from the sensory withdrawal of Pratyahara all the way to the blissful cosmic merging of Samadhi, but not always in a linear fashion. This fluidity, vulnerability and transpersonal openness that underlie this album, offer a unique artistic work that aims to communicate as much to the listener’s heart as to their super-conscious mind.

The God Within is released as a limited edition vinyl and and as digital download by Conscious Expansion. All artwork is by Dan Hillier.
