Aminita Satori is an eclectic, driven, and charismatic artist with a truly unique background. Originally from Chicago, Aminita enjoyed a successful career producing soundtracks on major TV ad campaigns for companies like McDonald's, Budweiser, and Verizon.
However, this wasn't it. This wasn't art. After a decade in the advertising world, Aminita grew disillusioned with the business and walked away for good. Succumbing to a five year writer's block, Satori's interest in music was rekindled in early 2011 upon discovering the lecture archives of late psychedelic philosopher and author, Terence McKenna.
Aminita Satori's latest studio effort, "Where Language Fails" is an ambitious collection of 20 tracks that blur the lines between genre definitions and ideas. Elements of psychedelia, chillwave, electronica, and hip hop can be heard throughout the album. Also recognizable, are influences from forward-thinking artists such as Bonobo, Flying Lotus, Toro Y Moi, and Thievery Corporation.
SleepingBagStudios.ca states, "Aminita Satori has a real gift for the blending of ideas through incredible switches that feel audibly natural, warm and inviting…the hooks run constantly and deep on Where Language Fails proving ultimately that music can express what's inside of us better than words ever will." Jamsphere.com writes, "…there seems to be hallucinatory imagery ingrained into the shifting soundscapes in the album, teasing the listener as it unfurls, leading one into a psychedelic frenzy or calm, as any strange narcotic could."
