about

This is the second full-length album composed by Silence & Strength. This esoteric, dark ambient, alchemical, experimental opus is inspired by Paracelsus, medieval Swiss physician, chemist, alchemist, one of the fathers of modern medicine, a rebellious thinker, who developed his own system of medicine and philosophy.

A musical allegory of life and works of Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, Doctor of Both Medicines and Doctor of Arts, Propagator of Philosophy, Professor of Theology, Prince of the Humanists, Gold-Maker, Pioneer of Chemistry, Magus and Genius.

Opus Paracelsum was composed as a realization of an old childhood dream, which evolved from an early interest in chemistry and alchemy, long before they start teaching chemistry at school, from an honest fascination with Paracelsus and his writings.

The album was written while experimenting with alternate mind states and various psychotropic substances in June 2006.

The tracks are all named after the writings of Paracelsus, except for the last one - Elegy, which is a sort of meditation upon the death of a great man.
