Definition of Raw Moments from a Different Perspec
Recorded over two years in Sweden and Germany, "Definition of raw moments from a different perspective" is an album that indeed presents a different standpoint to industrial and electronic music, conjugating them in it's own soulful fashion. What Mago defines here is a new shade of poetry made into warm and poignant music. Ever since they started writing music, the Swedish artists Jan Carleklev and Håkan Paulsson have torn almost every instrument and genre into their own particular approach. Recognizable for their discreet way of touching the listener with thoughtful melodies, their taste and talent for strong and yet moving tracks takes here a whole new form. Emerging from what was supposed to become a soundtrack to dance performances, this first album by Mago gives up the noises and strings of Sanctum and Azure Skies, somewhat tapping it's inspiration from a more electronic direction, and allowing these musicians' skills to bloom here in a completely new way. Mago's music keeps only the raw emotions of these other project's darkness, and stirs toward a smoother approach of the listener. The 9 tracks of this album move and seduce, presenting a very up to date feeling for deep and varied electronics and drawing their intensity from the seduction of their melodies and culminate as vocals. This album was originally released in October 2002. The 2015 re-press is identical in it's audio, but features new artwork and a special cardboard sleeve. It is a very limited edition re-release.
