The 'Samadhi' album is in one sense very animalistic, but in another sense highly spiritual. The sound sources are mainly based on animals (dog/cat) with additional acoustic and synthetic elements. Those animal sounds may at a first glance feel raw and untamed but the layers and structures in the compositions put it rather into an opposite direction of serenity and sublimity, all embraced by an aura of ritual touch.

The tracks included on 'Samadhi' are not new. 'Yoga part 1' and 'Yoga part 2' were originally released on the limited 10" vinyl picture disc 'Yoga' in 1997 (Yantra Atmospheres) and 'Spiritcatcher' was originally available on the compilation CD 'The Dark Ages - The Final Chapter' in 1998 (Arborlon Music). 'Yoga long version' is an extended and previously unreleased mix of the Yoga material from 2003 (this version is not in high fidelity; the original uncompressed master file has not been found, so an AC3 low resolution file (DVD-video sound quality) was used as source during mastering). All tracks has been re-mastered in 2013 according to the K-14 level standard. 'Samadhi' is only available as download from the raison d'être bandcamp webshop, and it's totally free.
