At ICTUS, we explore the limits of creative expression and storytelling. Through the execution of cutting edge technology, passionate composition and bold ideas, we create and elevate content that truly matters artistically and socially.
ICTUS’s new release Unraveled is an ocean of repressed and unleashed emotions. It exists in an uncontrolled mental space, where your subconscious is fighting to see the light. Every single element of the composition is tailored to this feeling. The lead singer and writer of the lyrics, Sherry Li, sings at a steady tempo representing one’s restrained and logical self. Underlying it, the surrounding choir’s rubato chant tides us to the surface of our greatest fears and most heartfelt desires. With sensibility, the intimate whispers come and go, echoing the endless boundaries of our minds. They brush the different sides of our common bodies. There is no surprise that, when immersed in this unknown territory, we find ourselves unsealed. Vulnerable again. Muting our silences. As the song progresses, the duality slowly merges, forming a complete and free identity, swaying in its newfound liberty.'
