Dark Ambient/Industrial/Death/Noise project from Wellington
In the words of Vanargandr......
Vánargandr is a work which explores the Shadow aspect of the Norse Kozmos as manifested in the acausal nexions which are associated with, and also re-presented in, the Sinister figure of Fenrir. It is a diadem of this point of consciousness, integrating and reconciling as it does the “light” with the “dark” (i.e. as striving towards that which is Individuation or “Adeptship” and beyond) whilst eschewing the dualistic praxis which has been indicative of the prevailing zeitgeist, in contradiction to its incipit ethos which understood the Kozmos as the dynamic interaction of polarities which were, and are, beyond the mire of “Good” and “Evil”.
On the whole, the past of Vánargandr is irrelevant, hence there is no self-indulgent biography celebrating bypassed times, because such does not inspire anything more, in general at least, than a sense of paralytic nostalgia. I would rather look forward to that which I prepare the way for, even with the knowledge that it shall not come to fruition in my own causal lifetime...
Vánargandr is and always will be: Steven - all composition and execution.
