THIS IS THE SISTER ALBUM OF NEFELODHIS
BY MAURIZIO BIANCHI & SPARKLE IN GREY
"In geography, a desert is a landscape that receives little precipitation. The desert has a reputation for supporting very little life, often it is composed of sand and rocky surfaces, it sometimes contains valuable mineral deposits and usually has an extreme temperature range.
The translation in Greek is ‘èrimos’ from which we derive the words ‘hermitage’ and ‘hermit’. Who is the hermit? He is an ascetic who lives alone in solitary and deserted spots, he keeps himself apart from the world in order to devote himself entirely to contemplation and to live in destitution.
In fact, the Erimos work ventures into experimental territory, extracting its preclusive opalisation from the rolling laceration of desecrated institutions." (Maurizio Bianchi)
