about

Φ (Phi) is the third and final installment in the Mediterranean trilogy (Theta in 2013; Δέλτα (Delta) in 2014), pushing deeper into digital synthesis and scorched ritual. The album opens with a duel of distorted drones (a collaboration with avant-folk instrumentalist Luca Venitucci) before plunging into oblivion bass, seething feedback, and combat samples. Later passages ooze industrial spoken word, technoid voodoo hallucination, seasick prayer loops, and nightmare exotica, assisted in places by Italian experimental percussion legend Lino Capra Vaccina (of 1970’s “golden age” groups Aktuala and Telaio Magnetico).
