"Nowadays, music must be violent and enigmatic, because it can only reflect the violence of the mass alienation and of the normalisation process that surround us." Fausto Romitelli (1963-2004) We gather to lose ourselves; we gather to alienate ourselves; we gather to find ourselves — in community. As fleeting as it may be. An experience between new music, mysticism and rave.
