It's not often that a label can say it is releasing something that sounds like nothing ever made. With the release of Vataff Project's Kalitz, Aleph Zero is proud to say just that. Welcome to the dark mysterious forests of Bulgarian musician Victor Marinov's mind. In the age of instant hit tracks we invite you to an 80 minutes long journey out of this world. Arranged as one piece like in Vataff Project's live sets, Kalitz offers a true album experience. The project has it's own distinct sound, although it contains elements of psychedelic techno, IDM, trip hop & ambient, occasionally incorporating traditional Bulgarian instruments. Vataff's music is like nothing you've ever heard and it engulfs you in thick psychedelic atmosphere with alien sounds that sucks you into another world from the first note. Vataff Project - Artist Bio The man behind Vataff Project is Bulgarian musician Victor Marinov. One of the pioneers of the electronic music scene in Bulgaria, Victor was part of two unique projects during the 90s - Dve Kupeta & Band of Mad Women. With these he released 3 albums. Victor has also been writing music for theatre and film, and recording traditional Bulgarian music for ethno-musicological projects. In 2001 he originated Vataff Project, a unique mix of electronic music with traditional Bulgarian instruments and vocals. In Bulgarian folklore the leader of the Kalushars (Rusaliys) is called Vataff. They are considered a folklore remnant of an ancient elite society of warriors, whose leaders were initiated in religious cult, and had the ability to heal and liberate through special music through rituals. Victor aims with his music to lead to profound feelings of ecstasy coming from the heart and rooted in ritual originating in the ancient times, and continued to the present and the future. The permanent development and evolution of sound, the search for states going beyond the field of matrix forms and images are basic tendencies set in the project's idea. Vataff Project has two albums already released in Bulgaria, and has been performing live internationally in many events and big festivals all across Europe as well as in Asia & North Africa. Vataff Project new album - Kalitz - is about to be released with Aleph Zero in May 2008.
