Zenon Marko – Descent 1

“Our favourite Zenon Marko delivers another masterpiece of Ambient production. When harmony of sound meets spirituality, you can rise into a higher state of existence. Then comes, “Descent” to bring you back… down to Earth again!”


Return to Earth: Descent 1 is the final part of the Symmetry cycle, a return to the beginning, the point of departure, the material world of earth.

Symmetry is the musically symmetrical soundtrack of a journey, whether physical, intellectual, imaginative, emotional, philosophical, psychological, or spiritual. The music expresses progressive ascent towards a goal, arrival at an apex, descent, and return.

The structure of the composition reflects and embodies philosophy, mathematics, sacred geometry, harmony and dissonance, and psychoacoustics. This electronic arrangement of the composition is inspired by early, baroque, classical and neoclassical music, as well as electronic music and minimalism. The entire album is musically symmetrical, with the “Descents” as compositional reverses of the “Ascents”.

Symmetry: Descent 1
Element: Earth
Geometry: Hexahedron

“What we call the beginning is often the end

And to make an end is to make a beginning.

The end is where we start from.”

“We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.

Through the unknown, unremembered gate

When the last of earth left to discover

Is that which was the beginning…”

– T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
