about

The Shaman - older than Christ - survives an endless winter of over two millennia as if preserved in permafrost like the mammoths and prehistoric horses littering the bowels of his mother Siberia.
The Shaman - named ‘the priest of the devil’ by dutch explorers - endures the horror of the Soviet labour camps. He has access to the Axis and inhabits more worlds than one.

NKT presents ​The Inner Empire​, the work from Siberian trio ​presidiomodelo where misty atmospheres are infused with a murky, industrial aesthetic. Following previous NKT investigations into inner conflict and alienation, ​The Inner Empire is a meditation on themes of self confinement and interior exile. Originally composed for theatre, here revisited to include the full original recordings, presidiomodelo​’s release is an evocative thirty minute journey that burrows deep like the diamond mines.
Rumbling synths oscillate amongst delicate beds of chimes whilst ghostly chants and guttural tones vibrate around the sound of handmade instruments and hypnotic drums, all immersed into the humid Siberian forest.
The soundtrack drifts unbroken throughout sections as if shifting through different thresholds of consciousness, dilating time and projecting images of ancient scenes and archaic practices.
The Inner Empire also reflects the feeling of mismatch between private and public persona in the modern world. It carries a primordial sense of imprisonment and inescapability, a familiar yet inaccessible inner empire.
