The first part of the "Power Romantic" trilogy, released end of 2010 in two editions of each 500 copies on the two labels Tourette Records & Silken Tofu. It contains a long one-tracker (46+ min.) with a 'hidden track' after, total time 59 min.

"Mare Idiophonika ('The Self-Playing Ocean') is the new album by the German duo TROUM and contains the studio-version of the live programme Troum performed in 2007, with a new ending added later.

Using bass, guitars, metal objects, voices and choirs and for the first time also singing-bowls and ‘dry’ beats Troum creates yet another magnificent journey into unknown dimensions. Its sounds are stunning and enchanting, leaving one in a state of bewilderment while exploring the world of the unconscious.

With its compelling drones and haunting atmosphere Mare Idiophonika is a masterpiece of transcendental soundscapes. It is a mind-blowing dreamy and moving experience, reaching out towards the inner self and beyond." [label info]
