Outside the Great Circle, Where Purgatory Ends is a spectacular multimedia project on both spiritual and artistic levels. Costin Chioreanu's movie premiere and art exhibition were highly acclaimed at the legendary Roadburn festival in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The project features the following guest musicians and artists: David Tibet (Current 93), Attila Csihar (Sunn O))), Mayhem), Kimmo Helén (Hexvessel), and Mirai Kawashima (Sigh). Merging music, illustration, and film, Chioreanu's animated film Outside the Great Circle invites the viewer to ignore traditional structures and genre-restrictions and submit to the experience of the moment completely. A work of visual art of this magnitude required equally massive music. For the soundtrack, which was composed by Chioreanu on guitar, he enlisted the help of Csihar and David Tibet on vocals, Kawashima on keyboards and synths, and Helén on violin and effects. Side B of this LP features the original soundtrack of Chioreanu's exhibition Where Purgatory Ends. The music was composed by Chioreanu together with Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen (Aura Noir, ex-Mayhem). The package contains the original soundtrack of Outside the Great Circle and the soundtrack of Chioreanu's exhibition Where Purgatory Ends on LP, a DVD of Outside the Great Circle, and an insert, with beautiful artwork designed by Chioreanu himself. File under dark ambient/drone/industrial.
