about

A concept album composed and produced by AFAN in 2005 revolving around the digital fears and the hyperbolic anxiety of the first decade of 21st century.

An illustrated booklet with the lyrics will be available as a bonus item of the full release.


"Composing music has been and still is an integral element of my expressive multilayered urgence. Even though the most prominent embodiment of my creative identity can be considered the visual language, it's the sonic shape that represents the turbine of its aesthetic engine. Somehow music works as the physiologic solution allowing my artistic projects to achieve their poetic and spiritual lubrication and let them swim in the neverending abyss of human as well as overhuman perceptions.
"In the Mist of Future" is one of my first concept albums I planned and edited keeping in mind the need to translate a specific mood through music, sounds and words. My musical worlds often work as ethereal landscapes where I can place the stories or the visual epiphanies I evoke in different periods of my life by writing novels, shooting movies or painting. It's like taking a journey into unknown lands without boundaries and slowly realizing that they have so many geographic features that you can easily transpose them into a detailed olographic map. Some of the songs contained into this album can be listened like impressionistic insights into well-defined zones of the emotive realm I was exploring six years ago, while others are mainly irrational feedbacks to menacing thoughts experienced during my wandering adventures across a misty continent where humankind is still crawling: its Future".

about

AFAN Alessandro Fantini Italy

Devoted to the "multimedianic" research on the super-human identity hidden in the infinite stream of delusions surrounding humankind, Alessandro Fantini's musical journey can be hardly described with the terms of a conventional sound experience. His approach to instruments and electronic devices is intuitive and irrational as well as the visions he captures on canvas and on digital video. ... more
