Atom Earth Mother is the solo project by Mark Warren of "zoviet*france".
This project is dedicated to the White Goddess and inspired by the prehistoric antiquities in Northumberland, primarily the enigmatic and beautiful ‘rock art’ that are known as ‘cup and ring’ marks, a form of symbolic language 4500+ years old, whose meaning has been lost in the mists of time.
Utilizing digital and analogue equipment and production technique, location recordings, found sound and employing experimentation as the creative tool, Atom Earth Mother embarks on a sonic journey to the origins of our civilization and indeed our very being.
‘Ancient Faith’ is an album about love and faith, and although it started out as homage to the Earth Mother, it soon became a deeply personal story documenting the end of a love affair and the emotional aftermath.
Stunningly packaged in a wooden box with a hand branded conjoined ‘cup and ring’ marked design burnt into the front panel, and containing a photographic satin insert with two superb images of the antiquities that were the major inspiration, taken by the artist himself, this double vinyl has three sides of audio and a fourth side that contains an etching of a ‘cup and ring’ mark plus enhanced CDr.
