A MANIFESTO :
A cross continental collusion. Culled from many miles and through conduits of wires and social media intersections comes WAR IS CARBON. Though they may be separated by distance, similar influences connects these artists. Arising from influences of a myriad of mediums comes a work of dark and sinister decay. As William S Burroughs wrote “Nothing is True. Everything is permitted.” Let its tentacles reach far. For it will seep into your veins and conjure nightmarish visions that shall not be forgotten.
A global vision of our existence results in RAUPPWAR , showing sounds like sinister movies and events, sci-fi , mystic art and ancient civilizations. All is instinct without musical technique . Only automatic auditions and perceptions at moment of creation.
No commitment to excellence.All the auditions are like seven snakes over the supper.
