Tagaq is currently raising money via Indiegogo in order to bring Belgian-based opera singer Anna Pardo Canedo to the album, and to complete the project.
Tagaq hints at the new album’s direction and inspiration as follows: It has been put together from a gleaning of information that has come from my extensive travels. It is my baby. It is a political and spiritual spelunking into the depths of this existence. We have put together a base recording of massive proportions, including heavy electronic beats, punkish percussion, and soaring viola. We also have some French horn players in the mix.
