Freed From Rage and Sorrow is a musical album and photography book in the making. Inspired by death and realization, this work documents a life long journey toward understanding and recovery, revealing the inner process reflected in the outer world. Through subconscious voices, sending coded messages, speaking in poetry and images, the self is lead to discovering what is real. And in so doing, builds a bridge back to wholeness.
Poems became songs and images became photographs. For over twenty years, I have created the sound and vision that is becoming this work. In darkness, not knowing why, always seeking, always trusting, pushing possibility to the limit, and finally over, facing the most terrifying, the most painful, because I must. I must be set free. And now, finally, I am beginning to step into this liberation. Letting go of the wish for it to be different. Relinquishing the fantasy that I have the power to change anything but myself.

Our friends at CrypticRock.com are premiering the new video “Messages By Dreams” by uber-legendary producer John Fryer’s Black Needle Noise. It’s a gorgeously textural cinematic video and song that editor Frank Malerba calls “a stunning visual piece” which features the velvety vocals of Attasalina.
A brand spankin’ new single release in collaboration with iconic producer John Fryer (This Mortal Coil, Depeche Mode, NIN, Love & Rockets)
Inspired by psychedelic journeys and times gone by, this song is also a tribute to the roots of gothic/industrial and the incredible and oft unsung trailblazers who have had such profound influence and continue to inspire music and culture around the world…
“Messages by Dreams is soulful dreampop; a tangle of barbed wire and muslingauze that unwinds only by tearing into fibres.”
– Cold War Night Life
“Before The Tears Came not only feels like a 4AD title, it actually sounds like one as well. In fact, you can say Black Needle Noise made the fourth album that This Mortal Coil never made.” – Peek-A-Boo
