"tzolk'in is the name bestowed by mayanist scholars 
upon the version of the 260-day mesoamerican        
calendar which was used by the maya civilization of 
pre-columbian mesoamerica. the tzolk'in, the most
fundamental and widely-attested of all the maya     
calendars, was a pre-eminent component in the       
society and rituals of the ancient maya. the word,  
meaning "count of days", was coined based on        
yukatek maya. the maya used several cycles of days, 
of which the two most important were the tzolk'in,
or sacred round of 260 days and the approximate     
solar year of 365 days or haab. the sacred round    
combined the repeating cycle of numbers 1-13 with   
20 day names... so that any particular combination  
would recur in 13 x 20 or 260 days; the day name
and the number changed together: 1 imix, 2 ik, 3    
akbal... as we might say monday 1, tuesday 2,       
wednesday 3, and so on." (reference:                
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tzolk'in)
                                                    
the musical project tzolk'in is a collaboration
between empusae and flint glass - artists who are
known in the fields of dark ambient, contemporary   
ritualistic tribal music and experimental
electronica. this project is a conceptual creation  
inspired by mayan mythology and the ancient mayan   
astrological calendar of the same name. from the
beginning their approach to sound resulted in quite 
a few novel musical perspectives: the merging of    
empusae's distinct dark, oppressive and brooding    
soundscapes and flint glass's characteristic        
rhythmic and ambient compositions (which are        
seemingly subject to an almost alien purpose and    
theme). the final product is majestic and epic,
often martial and bellicose, with a sense of        
tragedy that at times is even quite meditative.     
tzolk'in can easily be viewed as an exotic          
soundtrack to the phantoms of a dead civilization   
or more simply put, music that is inspired by a     
doomed mayan divination system.
                                                    
on their first self-titled release, empusae and     
flint glass chose eight periods of the tzolk'in     
calendar and on haab' they describe eight periods   
of the mayan solar year. ceremonious, deep tones
merge with the power and strength of industrial     
music - kept together by elaborate impulsive ritual
rhythms that enhance the atmosphere of a            
flourishing culture. an abyssal, haunting cycle of
tribal sound, constructed so that the listener can
dive into a bygone era.
