Sabine is released for Valentine by Silentaria electronic musical project (News)


For celebrating Valentine’s Day and honoring Romain Rolland’s birthday, Rixa White; the masked musician and poet behind Silentaria Electronic Music; calls a lost love to life by releasing a romance single track named “Sabine”.

Sabine

This contemporary instrumental love lament was formed in Rixa White’s mind while he was reading Romain Rolland’s Nobel Prize winner novel, Jean-Christophe. He composed Sabine single track with a profound sense of drama and romanticism, which differs from his usual contemplative, melodic synthesizer music. The music base is piano and violin, mixed with choirs and flute for creating a romantic blend of passion and melancholy.

True love never dies and in his desperate desire to snatch her from destruction, in need of denying her death, Rixa White tells Sabine love story through harmonies and rhythms. “Sometimes a patch of sky, large, pale blue like Sabine eyes reconnects one to an old memory. Like Jean-Christophe, I’ve dedicated this song to her and strove to call her to life in my music.” said Rixa White.

Lyrics are wonderful for expressing emotions, but to recall the unique personal memory of being in love for each listener and to awake a lost love story buried deeply inside, Rixa White has chosen to release Sabine as a Romance Electronic music track without lyrics.

One Mask To Hide Them All (Video)


“One Mask to Hide Them All” video

About video: This video is about the masks we wear in our daily life and invites the audience to be conscious about them. It might seem impossible to drop all of them, but we always have a chance to know them, eliminate some and choose new ones consciously.

About music: The background music is “Diversion” which is the 10th track in “What’s Real?“, the Electronic New Age music album from Silentaria.

About text: The following lines are shown in this video:

What if your face is not you?
What if your face is just a mask?
a set of masks
chosen for you
This time, you choose
just one mask
your own mask
to transform your destiny
from a disfigured Erik to The Phantom of the Opera.
from a test subject to V for Vendetta
a mask to tell your story
a mask to tell the truth
Awaken the rebel within
against all other masks
to hide them all
‘One Mask To Hide Them All’
Choose your mask, Be the change

Rebellious Electronic Music: Chaos in beliefs or living life to the fullest?


Is there a prescription to stop living in fear and guilt? Is rebellion one of the main ingredients? What if a masked man in white holds a key to answer? Will you listen to his music as a cure?

Rixa White - Silentaria

The rebellion concept has played a significant role in the evolution of contemporary music. Concepts and attitudes along with costumes and hairstyles have expressed various forms of rebellion in music history. Silentaria; an Electronic New Age musical project created by Rixa White; is intended to be in contact with that potentially rebellious part of us and awaken the rebel who is hiding somewhere inside.

Rixa White, a long-haired man in plain white, hiding his face behind a white mask is Silentaria iconic image. He might be the first New Age artist that purposefully focuses on encouraging his listeners not to fear, stop feeling guilty and live the life to the fullest, instead of forcing them to relaxation and serenity. Silentaria opposes presenting any step-by-step instructions or belief systems since persuading a particular constant direction will lead to conformity and obedience.

Beside his music, Rixa White’s poems and videos are in compliance with the aforementioned concept. For instance, against all advices that ask you to drop all masks from your face, “One Mask To Hide Them All” video emphasizes the doubt that even your face might be another mask chosen for you and encourages you to choose your own mask to tell the truth and become the change.

With such a rebellious vision, he has been criticized as an unorthodox in New Age music world and been told that his rebellious music concept can create a chaos in beliefs and lead to melancholy. “It is my intention to release the well-hidden deep chronic sense of insecurity and dissatisfaction in my listeners. I insist on facing the life burden instead of pretending that everything is fine outside while suffering inside. Rixa White said as an agnostic atheist musician and added a quote from Nietzsche: “You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star” to answer the critics”.

Rixa White - Silentaria

Silentaria’s multi-dimensional fusion music benefits from emotional melodies and diverse instruments and devices to create multi-layered themes with cinematic atmospheres, progressive orchestrations, polyphonic harmonies and hypnotic rhythms, that present elements of mystery, sorrow, epic, rebellion, romance and energy.

With either despairing or challenging track and album names, it might be impossible to get caught in usual Electronic New Age music monotony while listening to Silentaria music. It turns from soothing instrumental (Farewell, Sorrowful Truth) into cinematic Epic (One Last Quest, Return of the Lost) and from energizing Electronic (Beyond Destiny, Real Fantasia) into thundering Rock (Deceived, Curtains over Eyes). It is quite easy to surround yourself by this hybrid music that demands your sub-conscious for exploring strange sonic shores.
