Ariadne is a sacred music duo from Brooklyn, New York comprised of Christine Lanx and Benjamin Forest, two graduates of Indiana University’s esteemed school of music. With a focus on interspersing the ritualism of ancient spirituality and the secular iconography of the post-modern, Ariadne flawlessly bridge the two worlds through their intricate musical compositions, striking digital visuals, and captivating live performances.

Tsalal, which is Hebrew for the concept “to grow or become dark,” is the title of the brand new 6 track album (and first physical release ever) from Ariadne. It is a full-frequency, multi-sensory audio/visual experience totaling almost an hour of subsonic tones, glitched out rhythms, synthesized melodies, and extravagant choral passages with hints of Gregorian chants & hymnal somberness.
