☩ Asherah refines LP1's (TRAIT Records, Instruments of Discipline) concept of techno as a tool for entering trance states & the unconscious. This release shifts focus to binaural beats & expanding the potential of music, using frequencies to directly alter the listener’s state of mind. ☩ Asherah is thought to be the source of the Lilith myth, Adam’s wife before Eve, made not from his rib but as an equal. This ancient moon goddess of love & war has for thousands of years been derided as a whore or ‘consort’ ☩ Formed using Delta and Theta binaural waves, this track reflects on the recurring cycles of power & oppression over aeons. The track is intended not just for the club, but for deep dreaming and meditation ☩
Binaural beats are produced by simultaneously sending two slightly different sound frequencies to the brain via stereo headphones. The brain produces a third tone, equal to the difference between these two. The brain then entrains to this tone, causing the listener to enter a particular 'state' of mind.
"Brainwave entrainment happens inside the brain, and is caused by a physiological response. Upon hearing two tones of different frequencies – sent simultaneously to the left and right ears – the brain perceives a third tone based on the mathematical difference between the two frequencies."
Occur during deep sleep/meditation, reduce cortisol and enhance pain relief, promote access to the subconscious.
Occur during REM sleep/states of deep calm, promote access to dreaming mind, creative states of free thought and meditation.

Mastered by Trait
The machine pulls the latex hood over your face. It fastens the restraints one by one around your naked limbs. You cannot speak or move. You are a thing to be used, like the machine. And that machine is a man. This is music for the hardcore porn of your nightmares. Gregory Kimbrell
An absolute horror show of an album, Contact is full of sharp and painful noises, heavy Industrial banging percussion, and ear splitting shrieks and screaming. The atmosphere that Pharmakon creates is just absolutely unsettling and outright frighting at times. A true spectacle of raw energy, power and talent. Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse
