Hydromancy: ancient method of divination by means of water, its colour, movement or ripples, aiming to understand the past and to foresee the future.

Just as hydromancy uses water as a medium, Subespai (moniker of Mauri Edo, experimental musician born in Barcelona but currently operating from Sydney) used water as the main component for this record. His interpretation of "Hydromancy" mixes multiple aquatic recordings and samples to create a set of soundscapes representing the stages of a fictitious divination session. 

Armed with a long history of fascination with and respect for the occult, Subespai delivers four ominous pieces filled with underwater ambiance, haunting bubbly noises, distant clanks and other unexplained sounds, bringing images of sunken ships, cursed lakes and ghostly rivers to the attentive listener.

With "Hydromancy", Mauri perseveres in his attempt to walk the line between ambient and noise, field recordings and experimentation. He delivers short works consistent with the rushed times we live in, but still offering a treat to deep listeners, producing tracks full of nuances and hidden details, ready to drown into it.
