Nocturnal: (Archaic) An astrolabe for telling time at night, or for determining latitude by the position of certain stars in reference to Polaris; Opening by night and closing by day, as certain flowers act.
Wraith: An apparition of a living person supposed to portend his or her death; Something shadowy and insubstantial.
Nocturnal Wraith is derived from the natural and cosmological mysteries of the night. Everything written is an effort to explain what words cannot express. In the reflection of thought, there lie worlds of unexplained abstractions of truth, horror, and constant beauty. In the reflection of what lives, there will always be the shadow of death and the ether which man strives to overcome. Through self mastery one can achieve great heights of knowledge which links one from their roots to the stars above.
Nocturnal Wraith is an ambient, classical, instrumental solo project which expresses inner transparent worlds of darkness.
"If you peer too long into the light of the sun, the brightest light we know of, darkness is all you'll ever see after that. But peer into the darkest of darkness and you'll begin to see more deeply. You will begin to see other realities and hidden worlds."
"Darkness is never far away, either. Close your eyes my dear, and you are already there in its sweet, soft silence."
"For what point has this life if you can't realise your dreams?" --The Divine Comedy
"I despise a world which does not feel that music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy"
--Ludwig Van Beethoven
