Kalki, “Varanasi”, 2016, Cinematography by Basile Pierrat
Kalki is the tenth avatar of Vishnu to end the Kali Yuga, the last of the four periods in the endless cycle of existence in the Vaishnavism cosmology. He is described in the Puranas as the avatar who rejuvenates existence by ending the darkest and destructive period to remove adhama and ushers in the Satya Yuga, the first yuga in the new cycle.
Kalki is a progressive psytrance project by Thibault Fontaine, an experience music producer from Lyon, France, who has been crafting electronic music for a decade. He emerged on the trance scene earlier in 2016, wiht the release of his first EP “Varnasi”, illustrated by a captivating music video shot in India by Basile Pierrat. Kalki unfolds a narrative and spiritual universe combining sci-fi culture, primitive rites, and psychic esperiences that resonate with the psytrance movement.
