Wychazel’s new album is called The Temple of Hathor. Vibrant hypnotic rhythms, mysterious atmospheric effects and evolving middle eastern themes invite you to step into the world of ancient Egypt.
“Hathor, was one of the most important goddesses in ancient Egypt. Her wide popularity resulted in more temples dedicated to her than to any other goddess of the time. The most impressive being the temple complex at Dendera,” says Wychazel.
“Hathor was a solar deity, goddess of the sky, of women, motherhood, fertility and love. She took many forms, often depicted as a cow or human wearing a headdress comprising two horns holding an image of the sun. Her most common earthly manifestation was human, although she could also assume the various forms of a cow, cobra, lioness and, perhaps more strangely, a sycamore tree. She was believed to be the mother of the Pharaohs who were regarded as direct earthly representatives of the gods. Being so strongly associated with Motherhood, she was the go-to goddess for anybody wishing to have children or wanting protection from anything that threatened the well-being of their families. She could be fiercely protective and was not above being vengeful in such situations.”
The Temple of Hathor is recommended for relaxation, visualization and journeys of the imagination, this is a continuous play album with no silent pauses between tracks. Instruments include Santur, Oud, Duduk, Middle Eastern percussion, synths and samples.
