about

“Samsara” is the title of SAtheCollective’s latest music album that draws on the pagan, animistic roots of imagined Singapore through a dystopic lens.

A sanskrit term that describes the cyclic karmic loop of life, death and existence, the album is inspired by the concept of “Samsara”, where there are 9 tracks that reflect the endless loop of human existence, our interactions with the environment, and a bid to live in harmony with Nature and Technology.

The album was imagined through the following loose narrative:

A spirit of the land, channeled through a Shamanic figure tells this story. This story has been told countless times, each time in a slightly different manner. The iterations place the shamanic figure in various imagined states of Singapore, reflecting capitalistic growths; urbanised landscapes, sometimes seemingly utopian, but most other times dystopian. The shaman calls for change, to listen to the land, exist in harmony with Nature, liberation...

There is a call to action, to liberate ourselves from the greed of never-ending growth and to listen to the sounds of the land.
