For more than 16 months, this label - and this launch - have been cooking. Something made me do it ; something about filling a void in my life or having something more to offer.

I'm excited to open a new door, and bring you Aatma - a label dedicated to expanding boundaries and collecting music from a broad range of genres. I'm thrilled to be working with Paul Casper again, whose work as "Frore" I've been privileged to have a hand in releasing on another label. Most of all, I'm honored to share this launch with my long-time friend, Steve Brand, whose adept touch on the visuals surrounding this label should be more than evident to those familiar with his work on AtmoWorks and rM.

Thank you for opening the door. Welcome to Aatma.


threadbare - home is a memory

Paul Casper is the man behind "threadbare", a new organic ambient project from the man who brought us tribal-ambient artist "Frore" and EMB Industrial act "Scar Limit". About 6 months ago, Paul sent me a work-in-progress folder containing a variety of different musical environments. The work that grabbed me was filed under "untitled ambient project", and I knew I needed to get this music out.

Best known for the driving percussion and ethnic instrumentation that characterize his work as Frore, Paul's touch on "home is a memory" is restrained and cautious. The pieces unfold like vignettes; postcards of memories, edges frayed and blurred as if seen through a layer of dust. This is introspection given musical form - a slow spiral through the stories of one man's life.

Please enjoy.
