Introduction: Embracing the Ethereal
In an age marked by ceaseless noise and haste, music can sometimes serve as our only retreat. Scion, my brainchild project, brings forth an alchemical fusion of psychill, psybient, psytrance, chillout, downtempo, uplifting, and psydub elements. Carrying the legacy of my former project “Orchid,” Scion is more than just sound—it’s a journey through the various layers of consciousness and realms of the ethereal.
The Dawn of Scion: A New Chapter
Scion wasn’t born overnight. In 2018, after more than a decade of crafting beats and melodic rhythms, Scion made its debut with the album “Ascend.” But its roots trace back to my university days, where the heartbeats of my project “Orchid” began pulsating. Orchid, with its melodic progressive house and chill-out breaks, laid the foundation for Scion. I had the privilege of releasing several Orchid tracks on vinyl under prestigious labels like Hope Recordings, Silver Planet Records, and Source of Gravity.
A Reflective Evolution: Scion’s Essence
If Orchid was my morning raga, Scion is the introspective evening hymn. Drawing from the vivacity of Orchid, Scion finds its place more on the relaxed, introspective side of the spectrum. It’s mature, more discerning, and perhaps it whispers to those seeking profound auditory experiences. Every track is a song of my soul—a sanctuary that shields me from life’s storms and bathes me in its serene glow.
The Confluence of Genres and Passions
Beyond the familiar echoes of Orchid, Scion resonates with influences from contemporary psychill, psybient, and a myriad of other chillout and ambient genres. Yet, it’s not just about music. My love for nature’s untouched corners—the forests, mountains, mossy terrains, hidden beaches, and more—imbues Scion with an earthy, authentic feel. The sounds of ethnic instruments and voices, reminiscent of remote civilizations and lost eras, further color Scion’s sonic tapestry. After all, every note is an ode to my deepest passions and a homage to the artist in every one of us.
Discover Scion: Sounds, Visuals, and Beyond
Music, they say, is best experienced. So, while words can paint a picture, it’s the symphonies and rhythms that transport you to alternate dimensions. Here, you’ll find links and music players for all four Scion releases, readily available for purchase on Bandcamp. But the auditory journey doesn’t end here. From SoundCloud to Spotify, and even the captivating visuals on YouTube, Scion’s presence is scattered across the digital landscape. As you immerse yourself in Scion’s world, may you find that ethereal connection, just as I did while creating it.
