Nicolas RESSOT Le côté rock moins prononcé Que sur Grietas, cela ne m'a pas empêché de méditer sur la place de la technologie dans nos vie en privilégiant l'approche de l'ontologie comparative. Sacré Glacial drift ! Favorite track: Three Portals.

Track Name: Rotoscoped Waking Dreams
tiles falling from the sky - dodging them as they fall - naked and running for our lives to the stage for all eyes to see - only way to stay here - only way to carry on
Track Name: Three Portals
Satan’s sphere - guiding my fear - opening portals - waking up a trillion years away from here - breath this sulfuric atmosphere while the heat burns my skin
Track Name: Schlagfluss
spoons click - feet stomp - the flapping of hummingbird wings - it’s all trapped in my mind with no door to scape from - click stomp clap flip stomp flap
Track Name: Depresión Cortical Propagada
bubbles in my ears - worms eating my heart - bullets to my head - migraine - bring the metallic claw to me to take Loki away
Track Name: Anin et Ylil
el cisne vuela a mi alrededor acompañando mi travesía hacia el resplandor - sus plumas blancas se extirparán con cada paso, soplo de viento y último aliento - cuando veo directamente a sus ojos siento al buitre esperando mi muerte
Track Name: No Dejes Que Me Evapore
mis dedos se caen - mis brazos se rompen - mis piernas se queman - mis labios se congelan - me derrito - guárdame en un frasco para no evaporarme y dejar de existir
Track Name: San Francisco de Quito
from all I’ve lived was born this feeling - is this a life or am I dreaming? - now that I’ve grown, I have opinions - and it is you who kills me every time I talk - this air is so thick, filled with uncomfortability - ill do the same now, pretend that everybody is dead
Track Name: The Dark Descent
déjame tomarte un foto para no olvidarte - ya es muy tarde, ya no se quien eres - quién soy yo? - qué es esto que sale de mi boca? - son palabras - qué son las palabras? - nnnnn - nnnnn - nnnnn - nnnnn
Track Name: A Journey to Saturn
quiero verte despertar! - quiero verte despertar! - uuuuuu
Track Name: Nurnxibalbaxen
tower of the great eye - watching every step of mine - old tree with the secret of eternal live while I die - give me the password to enter the spider's lair
Track Name: La Única Verdad (I am GOD)
voy a despertar en aquel lugar - sé que no es real - es un sueño nada más - pero lo entiendo totalmente y no me quiero ir - puedo hacer levitar objetos soy Dios - no quiero volver a la realidad - aquí soy la única verdad
Track Name: The Hummingbird (I. A butterfly II. Two flowers III. The tree)
the hummingbird is humming - the creature’s party has begun - the butterfly is flattering out from the hiding into the light - delight - the bird chirps the sun back to life - the day all a new - the skyline and you - the trouble, the play, the fight - the players of truth - the black and the blue - the now and the how it could have been

the wine flows from the flower

deep roots connecting a network of trees - ever united and strengthening - zap runs through her veins
Track Name: Algoritmo 5.1
sácame de aquí!
Track Name: Cayendo Hacia el Espacio
la creatividad de mi subconsciencia se esparce como la luz en la distancia - frazadas bloquean todo lo que esta allá afuera - estoy en mi mundo lejos de todo - nubes donde puedo reposar - mar azul sobre mi cuerpo de espacio e inmensidad
