The Three Worlds - Allegory Of Vanity

ANEMONE TUBE

CD Digifile (LER018/2017) - LA ESENCIA

Limited Edition 300 copies

THE TRILOGY!
“The Three Worlds” is a work about transience on many levels, perfectly elucidated in the Buddhist Sutra “Far Reaching Pleasures”, “The three worlds are transient like clouds in autumn / Birth and death of all beings unfold like a dance / Their lives rush away like a mountain stream / Vanish like lightning in the sky”, which serves as the contextual framework for the CD series and is translated in the most beautiful and poetic fashion with three painstakingly arranged photographic scenes based on vanitas symbolism of old masters’ paintings.

The still life composition of the “Allegory of Vanity” cover references an abundance of those symbols: jewellery, a pocket watch, a catholic hymnal, skull and bones, withered flowers, a tipped over jug of wine, an extinguished candle, etc.
Two collaboration tracks with Yggdrasil from 1997, two from the “Allegories for the Future” cassette and an unreleased track from 1998 are a perfect representation of Anemone Tube’s early old-school industrial / power-electronics phase, and yet proof that both the musical approach and the topical background were already fully developed at that stage.

Best Ritual Industrial-Ambient.
