about

ARCHIVES is a series of 25 albums that includes the so-called ‘hidden tracks’ which Indra has never published until now, with the exception of a few songs that come from six albums in his early period which cannot be re-edited in their entirety.

This remarkable series is structured in five sections or collections: RUBY, EMERALD, GOLD, DIAMOND and PLATINUM. Each collection comprises five albums. The songs are presented in chronological order of their recording, starting with the RUBY collection.

Alongside the joy of listening to a very large volume of excellent electronic music, the ARCHIVES series offers the possibility of a true ‘incursion’ into the creative musical activity of Indra. It allows us to easily identify the different stages through which the artist has passed over a career of more than twenty years. It also offers us an excellent picture of the versatility with which Indra approaches different styles of electronic music (pure electronic, space, ambient, meditative, techno-trance, psychedelic, experimental). Additionally, it allows witnessing the evolution and refinement of his personal style, ideas and composition of his pieces.

Even if these songs were never released, they are obviously coloured by specific spirit, focus and energy of Indra, often representing a laborious studio work (with the exception of just a couple of live performances, extracted from his concerts). Obviously, the tracks are not as ‘polished’ as songs from albums published by the artist; however this allows us to enter deeper into the mystery of his creations, making it possible to capture fragments, stages or ideas which we would never have had access to otherwise, if these songs had been published.

The ARCHIVES Series is like a ‘gateway’ into the creative laboratory of Indra, a fascinating world if you know how to relate to it. The rich musical themes, vision and unique approach to the music raises this series of electronic music to a remarkable standard. If the previous series (SPECIAL EDITION – Tantric Celebration) was a sumptuous presentation of the Berlin School style, with the release of ARCHIVES we can say we have a complete palette of styles, expressed by Indra in different ways, from 1993 to 2015.

Truly the spirit of his music animates one of the claims the artist made in an interview many years ago: ‘My aim in writing music is to capture elevated love at its most stirring and a human’s inner harmony at its fullest.’
