hyper opal mantis 3lp
2LP | stroboscopic artefacts
'hyper opal mantis' is a triptych on three states of desire, & the first long player of kangding
ray for s. hyper is the primal, sensual lust, opal is the emotional catharsis, a blissful desire
for love. mantis, like the insect it refers to, is the destructive, fatal attraction.
triggered by the 2015 edition of the labor sonor festival "translating music" in berlin,
this split album between the splitter orchester & felix kubin offers two sides of the same coin,
sometimes appearing like the rendering of an identikit picture.
