The rich undercurrents and history of the Tarot deck inspired Alexander Hacke's unconventional new soundset for Hive: Tarot. Sonic motifs and themes wind throughout the soundset, guided by the meaning and interpretations of each card. Immerse yourself and let the sounds guide you, or find your own path.
Tarot divides sounds into suits rather than the more traditional categories, but you will still find plenty of bassy growls, dense textures, intense leads and intriguing sequences. Alexander Hacke's mastery of sound design and his singular aesthetic in Tarot will provide hours of exploration in esoteric soundscapes.
