Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away
Howdy and salutations, fellow human beings. It's that time once again for another BandCamp hosted 391 & the Army of Astraea Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away. This particular track is entitled "Herem Qorban", which is ancient Hebrew for, roughly, the contradictory descriptive; "tainted" or "impure" sacrifice. I'm pretty sure that the phrase would be more grammatically correct as rendered as "Qorban Herem", but I kind of like it the other way around. The diminutive little ditty is mostly based around an incessant rhythm track, and is offset by a somewhat middle-eastern feel to the synth parts and de-constructed voice samples.
