LAUNCHING OFFICIAL ANATOMY UNION WEBSITE
We are proud to present you the official website of the Anatomy project. This multimedia project is been a challenge for us to implement the animated 3D world in a website. The method and coding we are using now is
compatible with the google chrome browser. A special thanks to our web developer Jan Jorissen for his patience and motivation. He is meanwhile looking for different alternatives for the future of this website.
There are still some vinyls left of our first release we did back in 2013, a beautifully crafted track by the canadian artist Jesse Somfay under his alias Borealis. The track was remixed by the well-acclaimed duo
Lakker who released some very interesting electronic music tracks on prominent labels. The amazingly handdrawn graphical art of Alex Konahin resumes the whole release.
Don‘t hesitate to join our journey by clicking on ROOM in the top menu bar. We leave the discovery to people who are interested in following the trails of this project.
For people who are interested in contributing their talents to this project, please do not hesitate to contact us by choosing the right subject you feel afiliated to.
We thank all the people who have been supporting the idea of this new music project and the philosophy behind the Anatomy project.
The Store section is not yet available we are doing our best to make it accessible as soon as possible.
The first release Borealis - Fizzmint can still be found on vinylshops across the world or you can have a look here.
Anatomy. 7 letters. 7 organs. 7 vinyl-only releases. 7 rooms. Exploring the deeper and darker club-orientated music of today and tomorrow.While music is commonly perceived as a cerebral feeling in its very nature,
the organic reaction to music is not to be neglected. With this vinyl-serie we’re aiming to highlight the complete fusion between our bodily reactions and music.
But it‘s not all about the physical vinyl-only releases.A complementary cross-media digital platform constructed by a very creative team of people from different art forms is being set up as we speak. It‘s a
website/platform/game-world to which you can only gain access by following the trails of this project. Consider your vinyl copy as the key to unlock doors to another world, not only your own emotional
world but also to a digital place for you to wander around anonymously.
Every release will have its own chapter, its own role in a greater whole game-platform, and when combined together completing a final story.
The aim is to create an interconnected virtual and real environement where people from different scientific,artistic and philosophical backgrounds come together.
Anatomy project founded and led by Ceyhun Karasu and Jergan Callebaut in August 2012,Brussels.

Kara Cey is one of the founders of the Anatomy project. As a musician/producer he is always been interested in the visual aspect of his sounds. Each sound he produces is a depiction of a scene and each visual expression is a melody. His goal is to keep both visual arts and music as close as possible. The separation of categories in the intellectual world is not something he supports and would love to bring the sciences, philosophy and art together. The three should be related in order to advance towards new concepts and create unheard ideas. The anatomy project is the perfect place for Kara Cey to express his artistic and philosophical vision in which music, visual arts, philosophy and science roam together. The entire room one and story is written and modeled with this vision in mind.
This desert animation by Kara Cey depicts a mental state. The desert represents nothingness and the shape shifting object is a violation of our common perception of matter and motion. Matter can change shapes very quickly when exposed to extreme environmental conditions. This materialistic point of view is a metaphorical representation of the different forms that our perceptions and ideas can take in a short period of time. Kara Cey sees the universe as a continuously shape shifting organic entity [phase transition]. This continuously changing process is a point of view that might also be applicable to scientific rules. He is skeptical about fundamental laws that are valid for always and forever, he accepts that scientific rules are the only mathematical approximations that can lead us to new discoveries but he rejects to blindly obey this rules. Fundamental principles can shape reality if it is analyzed properly but it has also the capacity to mislead our perceptions about reality. It can also mislead our understanding of science and the world around us.
The desert is watched by men with cloaks who seek knowledge, compassion, empathy and solitude. It’s a quest without predefined goals and therefore just an adventure without an ending point through time and space. Being open to the several paths in life and at the same time having a general goal is the main moral.
This is an artwork drawn by Alex Konahin and it is an artistic representation of a hybrid entity of mechanic and organic geometries. This complex drawing represents one of the most important parts of a human body – the heart. The heart is a complex system that pumps blood and stabilizes our blood flow. It is the part of the body that is been related to emotion and feelings. Heat and energy can sometimes be felt from this part of the body. The heart is not only an interesting point for strong emotional feelings but also for its regulatory effect on the circulatory system. It can metaphorically be seen as a peacekeeper from a mechanistic point of view and an anarchist from an emotional point of view.
Feel the rhythm of your heart and dance with the rhythm of life.
Alex Konahin is the man behind this artwork. His unique style of drawing and love for abstract detail attracted the attention of many people around the world. Alex Konahin is all over the web and you can easily get a physical copy of his inspirational artworks from his own website or the websites he is affiliated to. The art of Alex Konahin is symbolizing the dichotomy between science and magic. Both are complementary in some way or another. He protects the idea that there is no border between magic and science. One can’t exist without the other. Black can’t exist without White. In order to read black symbols, there should be a white sheet. In order to see the light from the stars, there should be a black night.
Borealis aka Jesse Somfay is a Canadian artist that released several tracks on different acknowledged labels. The ethereal and atmospheric ambience of his music will definitely take your body and mind to another place. His music fits perfectly in the sound we are searching for the first Anatomy release. His interest in life stretches out from all different sciences to all different sorts of art. Nature itself and the working of nature on the mind and body is crucial in his music production. Jesse Somfay himself produces different styles of music but the essence of his philosophy remains intact in all his music productions. He embraces different viewpoints of life and understands the value of every perception, from the motion of a particle to the feeling of the sun shining in the eyes during a cold winter day. Everything is connected in Somfay’s worldview.
Lakker is a duo from Ireland producing some advanced underground electronic music. The duo are active in the electronic music scene since the early 2000s and have already released their music on several well-known labels. Their unique sound and mind boggling rhythms are a very rare combination of precisely designed experimental beats and atmospheric ambient sounds. Although their approach to music is quit dark and atmospheric, they tend to leave a lot of room for short melodies and emotional ambient sounds. The space between the drum patterns and atmospheric sounds can even sometimes lead the listener to a melancholic state of mind- Lakker, Litiv. It’s that last bit of emotional sensitiveness that makes a perfect balance between the darker spectrum and the brighter spectrum of their music. A range of frequencies that fits perfectly in the anatomy project.
The track released on Anatomy is entitled FIZZMINT. The slowly rising ambient drone, the repetitive hypnotic drum patterns and the mind blowing atmospheric bass are elements that mark the sound of FIZZMINT. The track ends up with moaning vocals and chants of celebration just before the moment your mind and body returns to its original form. Do not let the duration of this track fool your perception of time. Time is relative.
Jesse Somfay truly represents the deeper layers of sonic bass on the A-side of the vinyl. On the B-side lurks a more abstract and melodic interpretation of FIZZMINT, organically crafted by the Irish duo Lakker. The transition from a melodic and cheerful break followed by a growling bass defines the sound of Lakker’s remix. The two sounds differ from a technical point of view but are coherent from a more philosophical point of view.
We like to ask our artists what object they would like to see in the room designed for them. Jesse Somfay chose the crystal and defined it as the following:" I chose it just because of its form and color possibilities. I like the layering of cubes within cubes. It’s something aesthetically pleasing and slightly mysterious."
Crystals are formed by a chemical process that is known as crystallization or solidification.
This process happens when the molecules, ions or atoms are arranged in an ordered pattern in all three dimensions. Crystallization is scientifically and philosophically very interesting because it shows us that nature is not always chaotic and that order can occur in nature without the input of a human being. The term order refers to a geometrical pattern that we can derive by using our perceptions or mathematical equations. Let's be clear that it is an order perceived and acknowledged by human beings. Chaos can also be a form of order for other beings.
This abstraction of natural order is also called self-organization and can be found in different systems or organisms: the flocking of birds, formation of lipid bilayer membranes, the creation of structures by social animals, boids, bénard convection etc.
