The neoclassical act Ataraxia has released a new lyric video for the track “Ignis Pater”, from their 29th studio album, “Centaurea”.

“Ignis Pater” explores the element of fire, symbolizing knowledge, ardor, will, passion, and the spirit that vivifies everything. The band explains as follows: “Fire represents knowledge, ardour, will, passion, the Spirit that vivifies everything. This song emanates the colours of Fire always in movement. We perceive its ability to create and destroy, to heat and burn, to blind or bring inspiration. In Chinese medicine (and not only), Fire represents the heart organ at the centre of the chest also in a metaphysical sense, it represents courage which is the action mediated by the intelligence of the heart.”

The lyrics also invoke the element of water, leading to an alchemical union that produces wisdom and life. The band adds: “In the lyrics, the element of water is invited to union. The two elements marry in an alchemical marriage that produces wisdom and life. We soar between deeper singing and choral voices accompanying this alchemy.”

You can watch “Ignis Pater” below.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
