NYX is a representation of the mysterious beauty of darkness.
The topic of the series was followed by a second one called NYX II and has a partial connection with the series Fragments.
The series is part of the Collection "Umbra I" which has been presented on several exhibitions in Bulgaria and Switzerland, in the period 2017 - 2020.
Sum Of R’s new and third full length album „Orga“ (abbr. organic, organism) is a voyage that lets its passenger immerse into mysterious mist, a mist that changes its form and density with every song. Once finding access the listener will enter into a self-contained dimension that speaks its own language: a wordless, organic language made of pieces of an orchestral wall of sound, raw-boned melodies and repetitive mantras, where spirit, body and instruments become one.

ABOUT SUM OF R
Switzerland’s Sum Of R led by Reto Mäder (RM74, Ural Umbo) and accompanied by Fabio Costa create slow moving instrumental sonics with a sensibility for hypnotic and complex song structures. “Orga” (abbr. organic, organism) is an immersive voyage into a shapeshifting mist of raw-boned melodies and repetitive mantras. The album is a hybrid of ritual drums and eerie percussions, atmospheric analog electronics and epic drones forming a drifting orchestral wall of sound. Darkness, light and its reflections is what emerges from this mysterious aural mist.
