Elara – In the Depths of Time, in an Ocean Made of Stars

In the Depths of Time, in an Ocean Made of Stars is Elara’s second studio album. This is a record that we love to define as ‘intimate’ because it has been created slowly, in home sessions. During these session every member of the band suggested melodies and ideas that have then created the whole: a surge of melodies that create an actual concept. A concept that came together almost by chance, taking inspiration from one of Tolkien’s masterpieces, The Silmarillion, in which the English writer succeeds in describing the creation of his imaginary world through a ‘musical battle’ between divine creatures. With the same spirit we tried to compose a coherent sequence of movements and melodies that would run one after the other, create expectation, suspension and sudden explosions.
