From our inception, we at Heathen Harvest have championed a total Post-Industrial culture, and encourage both artists and audiences to embrace literature, photography, visual arts and all forms of cultural expression. So it is with this mission that we proudly announce this latest development from Montreal based label Cyclic Law. Owner and operator Frédéric Arbour has curated and paired striking photography and design with ambient and neoclassical music ever since his first release in 2002.
This summer Arbour is launching a new division, Cyclic Press, bringing his trained aesthetic focus to the world of print with “Inlumaeh”, a book of analog photography from Austrian artist KRIST MORT. Heathen Harvest is proud celebrate this upcoming release with an exclusive preview gallery and full-track stream from the accompanying LAMIA VOX audio CD.

It is with great enthusiasm that we present our first book project, released under our new division, Cyclic Press. This first publication presents the unique work of Austrian analog photographer KRIST MORT.
Inlumaeh relates to the connection and interaction of light and darkness. Where there is illumination a shadow is always cast and therefore all shadows originate in light. It is which these singular precepts that Krist Mort tackles her photographic work. Focusing on the darker and more somber aspects of life, as well as the beautiful and fragile side of death and the unknown, her pictures showcase the cycle of death and rebirth and also the cycle of creation and destruction, perpetually moving on in its oppressive beauty. Beauty and death, light and darkness, invocations and spirits are the foundations on which she creates her evocative imagery.
The book comes with an exclusive audio CD by Russian esoterist LAMIA VOX. 3 unique ritualistic pieces were channeled to accompany Krist Mort’s visions, adding a deeply mystical aural dimension to the visual work.
