"Tetraphobia" evolved from a cancelled album and presents an antidote to "Quinta Colonna" in that it is tension ridden, dissonant and gloomy.In fact, it's the darkest and unsettling album ever released by Synflict, but at the same time, it is no melancholic black mess in candlelight, but consists of precision cuts determined by cold rationality.

In a wider sense, this would be the enemy from within, the clandestine and seemingly invisible force: Paralysing, poisoning, spreading doubt and fear. The cognitive dissonance is the chord to be struck in order to subtly modify the objectives, to make the...

Second album after his recent single track on last Anniversary Compilation for Synflict from Germany. Studio Milanois a reference to the old studios of the sixties where the ancestor of electroacoustic music used to be created by splicing and reassembling tape loops. Hence the line "reflections of the past like echoing footsteps", which is meant as a technical reference to the characteristic tape delay sound of that era. There is also a musical aspect, of course: the parts are rather...

"Brain-Hyperspace" (suite which is the center of the entire work), since the title suggests unexplored places, such as extremely distant in space-time coordinates. Slightly dark ambient atmospheres formed by the massive use of synths alternate with more relaxed parts and sometimes rare soft rhythmic so it's not a casuality if this suite has been in patnership and associated with a visual performance, visual completion strengthening the impact live. Two uniquely different performances...
