Transcendental is a word that evokes something beyond the human comprehension, something that touches a spiritual realm. I do not use this word lightly. What we do with Nude Cloak is to tempt the listener to venture into a new domain. But it is not an easy trip, one must work hard to get there.
This is why we intentionally keep some imperfections on our album, and this is why we subtly tweak these ancient and majestic instruments with electronics. It is not to fake a different setting, like a church or a club, but to spark the listener’s curiosity and awareness. Something internal; be it intellectual or spiritual.
Yes, we hope our listeners ultimately have a good time, and we dare them to open and use their own minds.
